Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it better to repair or replace a roof?

It depends on the severity of the damage. If a falling branch or a windstorm damages an isolated patch of shingles, you could probably repair it. However, if the underlayment is damaged or if the whole roof is showing signs of wear, you might need to replace it. 

Always have a professional roofer near you assess the roof before making a decision.

Can a handyman repair a roof?

A handyman may be able to repair simpler problems on a roof, such as damaged shingles or gutters. However, it’s important that you hire a pro who’s properly trained and skilled to handle your roof repairs. When in doubt, research the licensing requirements in your state, and review several handymen and roofers before making a decision. 

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.  

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.

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.

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.

Do roofers offer remote or virtual services?

To find out the degree to which a roofing service can operate remotely, it’s best to contact local roofers and roofing repair specialists near you.

See if they will schedule a video call so that you can show them the project and get an idea of the cost. This will also allow them to give you recommendations on the type of roofing material, and the best time of year to do the project. You might also be able to book a roof installation or repair service far out in advance.

I was contacted almost immediately after my inquiry on Thumbtack. Kevin came out the next day and emailed quote. I called and left message for him, and he called back within the hour and answered all my questions clearly and concisely, no games. I had received quotes from 4 other roofers and chose Bay to Bay for their no-nonsense, professional, prompt service and communication. The work was scheduled and completed within 3 business days of scheduling. It rained right after the repair was complete, and it was a great test--no more leaking! Other companies wanted to either repair the whole roof, or remove large chunks and replace (flat roof). I was happy with Kevin's explanation that the leak was only in the transition with the shingled roof. The roof was just 10 years old, and this seemed most appropriate. Thanks for great, honest service!

I just had my roof repaired for several leaks as well. I got a few estimates & this guy (Tim) was great! He showed up at the time he said for both the estimate & for the repair...the very next day! He went above and beyond with what we asked for. Tim & his guys were very polite & picked up after themselves. I highly recommend him! Thank you :)

Came when he said he would come. Explained the problem area, I had an other roofer come out who confirmed the problem. Tim Rice fixed the roof and guaranteed it for six months. It rained really hard for the next two days after the repair and no problem.

I can’t say enough good things. Spoke with Brian, he came out and explained in great detail what needed to be done and what was most cost effective. His estimate was written so well and I could understand everything. Crew showed up and repaired my roof. Found a problem that wasn’t found before, fixed that as well! I’ve had no issues and it looks great. Thanks again!!
