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 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. 

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

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.

How can I find out if a roofer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a roofer is an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by visiting your state or city’s government website. Local governments are providing up-to-date information for residents during this time.

A national guideline is available on CISA’s website, Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page addresses 16 different categories of essential infrastructure sectors, but note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

The guys at Masis roofing did an excellent job. Replaced an old roof patch that went bad on my flat roof and also coated the entire flat roof in an elastomeric paint which has made my garage considerably cooler. I’ll be using Masis for all my roofing needs going forward.

Francisco is very knowledgeable and will err on the side of fairness. We asked Masis Roofing and other roofers about replacing our roof knowing that we didn't need it. Masis Roofing gave great advise cautiously saying that we didn't need a new roof whereas another company was eager to give us a price and a date to start, and thats why we hired them, Masis Roofing wasn't trying to sell us something we didn't need.

Rafael came out on very short notice and was very responsive and punctual. He examined my roof because of our leak in the ceiling and was very honest and said it wasn’t the roof. He was very professional and I would hire him in the future if I did have a roof leak.

Had a roof leak, needed the entire roof replaced ASAP and Roofing Max quickly tackled the job. Eugene worked diligently with the City of Tamarac to obtain the necessary permits to complete this project in a timely manner. He and his crew were absolute professionals. Eugene kept me apprised of the progress without me having to contact him. His crew even repaired part of my neighbor's roof after her roofer did a botched job. Eugene also helped me in getting new gutters installed on my house. Definitely went above and beyond. Highly recommend Roofing Max and Eugene to handle all your roof repairs/replacement needs!

I had a roof leak over my front door overhang. The previous roofer said I Needed a new roof. I researched and called Rod Guy because of his outstanding credentials. I figured hundreds of reviews couldn’t be wrong. We made an appointment with him he was professional and honest. He reassured me that I did not need a new roof I just needed a roof repair. That in itself save me thousands of dollars. Today my roof was repaired. He sent me pics of everything that was repaired. All work was done To the highest quality. Five stars is not enough!

If you are in need of roof repair work in Broward, look no further. In addition to a roof leak on my barrel tile roof, I also needed replacement of several fascia boards. I found Rod to be super honest, reasonably priced and professional. Customer satisfaction is priority for him and his team. He is super responsive and ensures that his team does a quality job and keeps his customer informed throughout the process. Hopefully you will never need roof repair work, but if you do Rod is your "Guy".

We recently hired Roofing Max to fix a leaky roof. This company delivered what they promised. They provided a quote made in the most professional way. Their prices were excellent. Amanda is very efficient. Thank you!

Rod came by my house this morning to check out a flat roof. Not only did he check the flat roof and was honest enough to tell me nothing was wrong with it but he checked the rest of the roof and found something that needed to be fixed I would have never known about, he was honest and we were very comfortable with him. You can tell he really cares! Thank you!

Highly recommend- helped me out with a roof leak after a tropical storm. Contacted a few roofers, Premier Tech stood out from the rest, did a great job, at a competitive price. They warranty their roof repairs, although hopefully I don’t need it.
