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.

I was very satisfied with my roof repair from Fraser Roofing.

I contracted Rod Guy Roofing to repair a roof leak into a second story bedroom ceiling from my Spanish tile roof. At the same time I needed repair of a small roof "doghouse" over a patio door entryway, repair of a another small decorative roof over a front window, repair of a sagging fascia in a roof corner, repair of additional fascia boards. All repairs required removal of tile, rotted plywood, and installation of new roof in all areas including new Spanish tiles. This was a very difficult job because of time, material acquisition, roof slopes and confined spaces, and multiple roof locations. The Rod Guy roofing crew did a great job overall. The owner called and stopped by the job to make sure I was satisfied with the work. The job site was picked up every night and at the end of the job.

JAC Roofers Inc. is an excellent roofing company. They came to my home twice before beginning repairs to inspect the roof as well as the interior of the house where the leak was detected. They promptly diagnosed the cause of the leak and repaired and reconstructed the area of the roof that was damaged and deteriorated from years of neglect. During the entire process, Mario and his team maintained close communication with me and finished the job on time and on budget. The before and after pictures speak for themselves. I strongly recommend JAC Roofers, Inc. if your roof needs repair.

I hired JAC ROOFERS to fix an asphalt shingle roof. He was very professional and did a great job fixing the issue. He even inspected the rest of the roof and the attic to make sure there were no other problems we weren't aware of (there weren't). The work was great and came with a 3 year guarantee. Will definitely hire again for any future roofing needs!

Skyline roofers did a great quality job with a honest price. I had several roofers respond to my property needing a new roof. Skyline staff was quick in answering all my questions. The roof work just received an excellent on my house appraisal by an independent company. I also have a 2 year warranty on a roof recovery. Thanks again!! Celeste A. Miami Fl

I strongly recommend Rod Guy Roofing to anyone who needs roof repair. From the very start, he was courteous, prompt and displayed a very high level of expertise. After diagnosing my multiple roofing problems, he provided a very reasonable quote to fix the shoddy work of a much less experienced and qualified roofer. His team was on my roof, carport and chimney the next day to resolve all of my problems. In fact, he even repaired a few extra things that weren't in the quote. It's so hard to find honest and reliable roofers here in South Florida, but Rod Guy is definitely one. There's a reason he has a 5-star rating. He even came back to fix a spot I damaged by stepping on it, without any extra charge.
