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 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 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

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.

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.

I hired Fidelis to repair roof, very professional, personable, and honest, while other roofers pushed to replace the roof. Fidelis said the roof could be repaired and last 5 - 10 more years. He provided details and pictures of what needed to be repaired. The repairs were completed on time and he repaired a soffit on dormer for free. This is someone you can trust. I'm very comfortable and completely satisfied with his work and the experience overall. I strongly recommend Fidelis if you need a repair or roof. I will definitely hire again.

Hugo, from HG Roofing Services, is very competent & has years of industry experience. When a small portion of the roof above our back porch caved in I was anxious about how extensive the damage would be & how much it was going to cost to repair it. (Intentionally, I did not wish to contract with a large roofing contractor. I am of the opinion they have so much work that they dispense with projects quickly & it’s a training ground for those learning the trade). Hugo has a small team of workers. He explained our home builder had not used flashing on the side of the roof as it slopes upward under an overhang. Yes we encountered water damage in the eaves of the attic & above the porch celing. Much to my dismay, I learned our 14-year old roof has maybe another 3 years of life left in it. We’re not talking an inexpensive home. What is it about builder-quality workmanship (or lack of it)? I digress. Suffice it to say I was very impressed with the workmanship of HG Roofing Services & happy with the price. We’re talking trade knowledge bred from years in the business & true craftsmanship. I will be calling Hugo back in about 3 years to replace the roof😩! In the meantime, I’m hoping for a major hail & wind storm directly over my home (if you catch my drift)! You will not be disappointed in HG Roofing Services.

David's team was very responsive. He got someone out for a quotation and we were able to agree on the project right away. The work was done very efficiently and at a reasonable cost. I would highly recommend Rackley Roofing for any roof repair work.

I was thoroughly impressed with the work that King’s Premium Roofing did. I was in need of a new roof as my house was built over 20 years ago. King’s Premium came right out and provided samples and advice on colors that would complement my house. Once I decide on everything, they came right out and my roof looks amazing. Their attention to detail and professionalism was stellar and I am extremely pleased with the finished product. I would definitely recommend King’s Premium!

HG roofing company is the best for your money!Just bought my house and noticed a leak in my garage. Turns out the leak was coming from the roof. I hired HG roofing company and it was the best decision I ever made. We had one day break between the continuous rain, Hugo came out and saw the cause of the leak was from the roof and it needed flashing! He explained to me exactly what he would do, materials needed and how long the job would take. He fixed the roof in a few hours and it looks like it was a part of the house all along. I mean it looks nice!!! See the photos I added below. What a great job! No more leak in my garage and the roof is repaired, looking like a million bucks! Hugo is so professional, efficient and always cleaning up after the work. He also repaired my dry wall damage created when we changed out the shower valves and what a fantastic job he did on that! His price is fair for the work and he uses good material for the job. Thank you Hugo & company! You are a gem! I would definitely recommend you to my friends and family.
