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.

Brian was great to deal with. Came by the house the same day I posted to finalize the roof repair quote which was close to what he quoted me on the posting. He was there at the house the next morning at 8am as scheduled to address the repair.

Barry and Dario did an excellent job. I had a roof leak in a couple of places. They were very patient with my 1000 questions and explained the process to repair. They gave a fair estimate (the best price I got), they showed up on time, did the work right, and repaired my roof. The roof now looks great and we have had absolutely no leaks. Barry followed up with photos and video of the work since you cannot really see under the tile once the work is complete. I highly recommend these guys and I will use them again.

Joshua replied very promptly and acted in a professional manner from start to finish. The initial repair did not fully resolve the leak but Joshua responded right away when we informed him of this and he came out very quickly to complete the repair. Since his second visit we have not had any roof leaks. I highly recommend Dry Guys for your roofing needs and we would happily use this company in the future.

Dry guys roofers are a very honest company! They came out to my home and checked in my attic and determined that my roof itself was in good shape ! I just needed the problem area cleaned of debris and leaves so that the roof could drain properly ! They went ahead and cleaned the area and ran water on roof to make sure it drained into the gutter properly with after cleaning it did! These men were very professional and did not even want to charge me for the service done ! If you need a honest and professional roofer Dry Guys is the company for you! I know when I am in the need of a new roof or repair I will give them a call!

We have not hired Storm Roofing and Repair yet, but had them out for an estimate. I appreciate that they responded within 5 minutes. They came out less than 24 hours later. They called when they were on the way. They showed up when they said they were going to show up. They did a very thorough inspection of the roof and the attic. Very professional, kind and knowledgeable. I look forward to getting their estimate and report back. Appears to be a great company!

This is the second property we have used Storm Roofing and Repair at. They are always quick to respond to our inquiries, after getting multiple quotes we felt they were the most fair and honest, and they communicate and send pictures during and after the project to let you know how the job is coming along. We will definitely use them again in the future.
