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 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 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 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.

Reviews for Saint Petersburg roofing professionals
Mark K.
We were very pleased and impressed with Castle Roofing’s price, quality and service. We had quotes from several roofing companies, and Castle Roofing’s price was the best. We appreciated working with Brian, who is knowledgeable, easy-going, and easy to work with. Brian was responsive to all our questions. The work was quick, one week to take off the old roof and install the foundation for the new roof, and another week to install the new roof. The crew was hardworking, courteous and efficient. Top notch work.

I’m so glad I used Busy Bee to replace the roof on my residential home. Matthew is very reasonable, friendly and honest. I received three quotes but they have the best quote for the job. David and his crew had to replace a lot of rotted plywood and I’m so glad they did not charge me an enormous amount for additional materials and additional labor. I’m so happy with my new roof. I will definitely recommend them to anyone who asks for a roof replacement.

Matt and the Team at Busy Bee Roofing did an amazing job putting a new roof on our St Petersburg home that we are renovating to flip. Next year we plan on renovating 6 homes, and we will be using Busy Bee for each of them, due to the professionalism, responsiveness and work quality. Well done guys. 5 Stars all the way.

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!

The only roofing company that actually came out to talk to us and give us a quote. The others sent a quote via email. Very pleased with Gary and his advice.

Very happy with the work A Star did on our roof. They arrived on time, cleaned up nicely, and the price was actually $50 less than the original quote which was a nice surprise. Would recommend A Star! Thanks!

Time for a new roof? Ugh, you may be thinking to yourself, I DO NOT want to go through an arduous process, lengthy sales pitch, or "buy now and save $1000"s" when choosing a roofing company. Save yourself the headache and contact Beams Roofing & Contracting. They are fair, competitively priced and provide SUPERB service all around! We found Gary Hammerbacher to be honest, prompt, pleasant, friendly and straightforward. He and Wes Beams provided a detailed estimate of costs in a professional, courteous, quick manner. Although we were not ready to do the roof at the time of the estimate, Gary kept in touch periodically (in a non annoying way) to see if we had any questions, had set a date, etc...I assured him BEAMS would have our business and I meant it! When we were ready to schedule, Gary came to the house and we went over every detail of the contract, provided a deposit, selected shingles and a flat roof color from a WIDE RANGE of colors and options, and a few days later Gary contacted us as soon as he knew the project would begin. "Homer Hauls it" delivered the dumpster early, (super nice guys also). Same morning Gary was punctual, super friendly and introduced us to the crew, led my a very knowledgeable crew leader named Alfonso and the crew got to work. TOP DOG says it all, this TEAM ARE WORKHORSES! I cannot say enough good things about the work they did in just 2 and a half days! From start to finish they worked their butt off. The tear off is messy, but you would never know it to look at our yard, the clean-up is meticulous! Throughout the entire process Gary was always communicating with us via phone, text or here onsite to see if we were satisfied, had any questions, or to keep us updated on the progress. (not the disappearing salesman we've all met!) That said, we have a beautiful new roof in St. Pete. I would recommend Beams Roofing without hesitation!! Save yourself some time and agony, just call them!

Very unprofessional !, very poor and low quality of work. I have to hire another roofer to correct Kavin sloppy work. He never responded to my request to finish the job. Stay away from Kavin's roof works.

No complaints. Only praises. I have worked with many contractors and handymen in my life. Unfortunately some are not professional at all. That’s sad. ABT roofing luckily exceeded my expectations. The job was on schedule, and the clean up superb. The owners are easy to get hold of. And polite folks as well. The quote they gave: reasonable for sure.

We contacted them after a roof leak from a tropical storm. They were there first thing the following morning where they provided a very reasonable quote, did a temporary fix to prevent further damage and came back after the storm had fully passed to do the full job. They were friendly yet professional. We will definitely use them again.

Roof was done at a fair price and on time. Came back to address mismatching paint on side of house. Our sky lights are outdated, many roofers said just close and cover, but we like them. Castle Salesman did lots of research but could not find replacement domes. He did provide resources but I had to complete the dome replacement on my own.

I'm very disappointed they didn't repair soffit and fascia which I was very specific on repairing since we are repainting the house. I asked them to repair fascia and soffit, but they only fixed the roof and didn't fix fascia and soffit. As I am an Asian woman, not familiar with some contractors terminology, I believed the estimate, saying "Leak at transition from shingle roof to flat roof- showing in soffit", includes fixing fascia and soffit. I clearly sent the damaged area pics before estimate day and clearly pointed at the damaged soffit and fascia and asked him to repair the area during the estimate day. Tim expected I understood the document and did not mention he isn't "including fixing fascia and soffit", and there wasn't any word "I don't fix fascia and soffit" at the estimate. Their Thumbtack page showed up at the first on Thumbtack when I searched "Fascia and Soffit Repairs" and some of their reviews said "they do good fascia and soffit repairs". I had to hire a second contractor to finish the repair work for that area and go over my plan budget and timeline. I asked Thumbtack to ask them to pay only $300 for the additional repairs I had to outsource, but they didn't want to do that. I'm so sad how they treated me.

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!!

This was my first choice going into finding estimates. The gentleman that came to my house, George, was very nice. Called me to let me know he was on the way. Answered all my questions made sure I understood everything. I ultimately had to postpone my roofing project and went with a different company because my budget is broke college student thin. The price was fair and though I didn't get a written estimate I was pleased with their customer service.
