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 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 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.

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 Wellington roofing professionals
Thumbtack Customer
I needed a roof leak repaired. The owner was courteous, prompt, and very professional. He provided me with pictures of the roof leak and afterwards the pictures of the repair his company did. They were able to come out and do the job ASAP . There was no hassle, no mess, no excuses nor any problems. The repair was priced very reasonable and I highly recommend this company to anyone needing a new roof or roof repair. They are awesome!

Lee did an excellent job at accessing and completing the repairs I needed on my roof. He was punctual and completed the work efficiently. Having worked on Florida roofs for many years, I felt very comfortable with having Lee complete my repairs. In addition to resealing sections of my roof to prevent future leaks, he completely replaced Facia and trim, and installed a gutter. I would definitely recommend Lee to anyone looking for roofing repairs at a reasonable price.

Miguel and his crew did a fantastic job on our Fascia replacement as well as shoring up several areas of our tile roof. From the estimating process, managing the project, and quality of the repairs, these guys made it very easy to work with. Highly recommended! We look forward to working with you again on sealing our driveway and pool deck soon!

Definitely would recommend to anyone seeking quick & efficient responsiveness, flexibility, quality work, and great value. Carlos came out, inspected our roof & fascia, and provided a detailed estimate in a timely manner. I had a lot of questions and Carlos responded to them all right away. We gathered several estimates from multiple companies and we felt that GARP CONSTRUCTION provided the most bang for our buck. Carlos & his team were able to start our project right away, and complete all the work in a manner beyond our expectations. Overall a very successful transaction, from first preparations to final product. Again, would definitely recommend . Thanks Carlos & GARP CONSTRUCTION !!!

Upon reading all the great reviews, i chose Roofmasters for an estimate along with 2 others. Roofmasters contacted me within minutes of my request for a quote! Fabio kept in contact with me and made appt for next day for estimate! Upon acceptance....as his price was right in target of my research and lower than a second phone estimate, an appt was made for the fix. He called on his way, and was right on schedule. They began work immediately and within 2 hours my broken tiles were replaced. Loved getting the drone video of the entire roof showing me the completed job! 4 days from first contact to completion! These guys are fantastic! Responsive, professional, courteous and great workers. I highly recommend them.
