Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it worth it to hire a roofer?

There are several reasons why it’s worth it to hire a professional roofer instead of attempting it yourself. The first is safety. Roofing is inherently dangerous, as a fall from a roof could seriously injure or kill you. Roofers have specialized equipment and training to help prevent accidents.  

Next is experience. Roofers know how to spot problems (leaks, missing shingles, moss or mold growth, etc.)  in your roof that could potentially save you from costly repairs down the road. 

And finally, roofers save you time by getting the job done quickly and with a high degree of quality.

How do I choose the best roofing contractor?

Choosing a roofer starts by reading reviews online. Compare customer ratings of roofing contractors and companies to identify pros with a good track record of craftsmanship and customer relations. Some reviews may also have photos of completed roofing jobs.

Many states require a license for someone to do roofing work, so make sure the companies you’re considered are licensed. Also, look for contractors and companies with several years of experience. 

Before you make your final choice, contact several roofers near you to get free estimates and quotes. Ultimately, choose the roofer that will do high-quality work for a reasonable price. 

What is the best roofing material?

The best roofing material for your home will depend on your budget and what you’re looking for. If you want a roof that has longevity, consider the following: 

Asphalt Roof

Lasts 20 years

$5 per square foot

Metal Roof

Last 50 years

$10-$18 per square foot 

Clay Roof

Last a lifetime

$15-$20 per square foot (for terracotta)

$20 per square foot (for Spanish clay tile)

Concrete Roof

Last a lifetime

$10 per square foot

Slate Roof

Last a lifetime

$10-$75 per square foot

Does homeowners insurance cover roof replacement?

Homeowners insurance generally covers roof replacement if the roof is damaged by a natural disaster or a sudden accident, according to Investopedia. However, insurance companies often won’t cover roof replacement costs if the roof is older than 20 years. Read your insurance policy to find out what types of roof repairs or damages are covered.

How long does a roof last?

A roof’s lifespan depends on two major factors: the material and how well the roof was installed. Assuming that the roof is installed properly, here’s how long different roofing materials should last:

  • Asphalt shingle roof: 20 years
  • Metal roof: 50 years
  • Slate roof: 100+ years (lifetime)
  • Clay roof: Lifetime
  • Concrete roof: Lifetime
  • Copper roof: Lifetime

How do you know when you need a new roof?

Some of the signs that indicate you need a new roof include cupping, warping and peeling asphalt shingles, as well as cracks on certain shingles. Other warning signs may include:

  • Leakage
  • Exposed nails 
  • Missing granules
  • Droopy, sagging roof
  • Moss, mold or fungi growth 

A metal roof may need to be replaced when it grows rusty and begins leaking. Tile roofs made of clay, slate or concrete need repairs when cracked. Cleaning and inspecting the roof regularly can help prevent major damage from occurring. 

Contact the best roofers near you to inspect, repair or replace your roof.

Do you tip roofers?

It’s not customary or required to tip roofers. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t tip, but it is generally not expected. If you do decide to tip, you can give the tip to the foreman or distribute it yourself. 

Another idea to show your appreciation is to surprise the crew with coffee, water, snacks, breakfast or lunch when they arrive at the worksite. 

Does a roofer need to enter my home?

Generally, a roofer will likely not need to enter your home. The bulk of the work takes place on and around the edges of the roof, where roofing material meets either dormer walls or other structures. So, there is usually no need for person-to-person contact. However, there might be some cases where a roofer needs to enter your home, perhaps to inspect damage or access electrical outlets.

You can take care of any consultation calls using video chats, photos and emails, and payment should take place on virtual platforms. Put together a strategy with any local roofing professionals you contact.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a roofer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Because social distancing is important during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s recommended that you message roofers after narrowing down your choices through an online search of local roofers near you.

Ask if the roofer is willing to conduct an assessment via video chat rather than a traditional site inspection. Additionally, strategize on what other steps you can collectively take to make sure you’re following guidelines on social distancing during this time, including conducting a virtual payment.

Can I use digital payments to pay for roof installation, replacement or repair?

Digital payment platforms are common among roofers, roof repair companies and other services. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely cause more service providers to adopt platforms like PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Square Cash, Venmo and others instead of cash or check to decrease the risk of transmission.

You can typically find out whether roofers accept digital payments on their online profiles, and you should confirm this information with them during a consultation call.

Lee is a true professional. Courteous, on time, and honest FAIR pricing. He took pictures before, during and after roof leak to show exactly the problem and what was fixed. The work performed was completed timely and clean. I'm very stringent on overall quality of service and who I hire and would recommend him to anyone! I had 3 other roofing companies come to inspect the roof leak and two of them didn't even inspect it! Lee They said they know the issue and quoted me a absolute ridiculous price to fix. This is what happens when you live in a affluent neighborhood and they know they can price gouge you as soon as they drive through the gate. It's refreshing, to say the least, to have someone like Lee for any of my future roofing needs.

Eugene was very patient with me. I took my time and met several roofers. He can out for a roof replacement but due to unforeseen circumstances I needed to do a repair instead. He didn't mind and took the job. He provided a warranty for a roof repair which no other companies did. Highly recommend. Thank you!

The roof leak was fixed quickly and well. The crew was on time and professional. We got multiple quotes - not only were they the most reasonable, but also the most honest and upfront.

This was the best choice we possibly could have made for our roof repair needs. Andy replied to my request within hours of posting (on a Saturday) and was there on Sunday to look over my roof and give us an estimate on the work he would be performing. He explained everything he would be doing in detail and offered suggestions for repairs our untrained eyes didn’t see. He was extremely prompt on Monday morning and did everything he said he would do in a few hours. He and his helper were polite, extremely tidy, and super quick. I would definitely recommend New America Construction for any of your roofing needs!!!!

After getting ripped off twice from other roofing companies, I decided to call Lee for a roof repair. Lee took the time to crawl in our 1 story attic and evaluate the damage and repairs needed. Lee explained everything in great detail what was needed and not needed. The other 2 companies never inspected the damage as Lee did. Lee gave us a real fair price, not inflated, I thought he deserved more, and came out the following day to do the repairs. I liked his quick call back and fast responses. Keep in mind this was done during a HEAVY, HEAVY rainy week. For a good, honest, no BS roofer, Lee is guarantee the best. I will definitely call Lee for future repairs. -Thanks Lee for being honest roof repairer.

Rod repaired a very leaky roof for my aunt and also for my mom, and my brother. He did a fantastic job on all three. We couldn't be happier with his work, integrity, and honesty. He was very communicative during all three jobs. We would recommend his work unconditionally.

I had a gooseneck replaced on the house. Costamare were out that day to assess, gave a quote and talked me through what was happening. They came to do the job the next day. They showed me the materials they were using and whilst replacing the vent on the roof sent me photos throughout of where the problem was. Really pleasant team that came, very professional and managed to bridge the gap of the knowledge between a home owner and tradesman, giving you complete confidence.
