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.  

Reviews for Palm Coast roofing professionals

Still in the process of waiting to get my new roof approved and scheduled (due to Hurricane Matthew) but, so far, very pleased with Power Roofing. Bryan called promptly and got out to my house within one day in order to tarp my roof. He was very professional, very knowledgeable and easy to work with.

We recently bought a home in Palm Coast. I wanted to be sure that the roof was in good condition before committing to the sale. I contacted three different roof companies and Florida roofing responded within 10 minutes of my inquiry. The time was set up for the following day. At the confirmed time two representatives from the company arrived and went up on the roof with me to inspect and make recommendations. They were professional and honest. They didn’t try to hardsell the job even though there were some issues. I was very comfortable with them and certainly Recommend their company . I plan to use them soon to take care of the roof and solar installation

High marks to Bryan Thomas of Power Roofing and Construction I have been a Realtor in Palm Coast Florida for the past 28 years. I know and like many roofing companies locally. When Hurricane Matthew devastated our community, this past October, I had 3 roofs I had to get fixed or replaced. My parent’s roof, my mother- in- laws roof and my personal roof. I left messages with several roofers in town. After much frustration of leaving messages without replies, I decided to go online to search out other roofers. I read some positive comments of a roofing company called “Power Roofing and Construction” and decide to call them. Within a half hour of my initial contact with the company, Bryan Thomas contacted me back and said he can come out to take a look. He came out the very next day, this was a Sunday. At that time, I told him we need to look at 3 roofs….. so we immediately drove to all 3 homes and he made his assessment. He said he can work with any or all of the insurance companies quotes…. I must say, his crew worked quickly, efficiently and pretty much on time. The cost were reasonable and I didn’t feel at all I was being taken. Funny thing, after 2 roofs were completed, several of the locally roofing companies called me to see if I needed their services…. I politely stated that I have completed 2 of the roofs and will soon have the 3rd done. I have and will continue to refer my clients to him. Great Job Bryan!!

I’ve had terrible experiences with contractors since moving to Florida. When I realized that the prior contractor who constructed a roof from my home to the lanai did a terrible job leaving many leaks and other problems, I knew I had to get yet another contractor to fix the problem. I was very lucky to find Brad Reese. He is very professional, shows up when he said he will, his work is excellent and he takes pride in what he does as if it was his own home. His price is reasonable and he stands behind his work. I would recommend him to anyone.
