Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When is the best time to install a new roof in Atlanta?

The best time to install a new roof in Atlanta is when the weather is ideal and the roofing companies aren’t slammed.

Generally, the spring or fall is considered a good time to install a new roof. Avoid installing a new roof in December, January or February. During these months, the city is more likely to experience ice storms or snow. 

If you’re thinking about installing a new roof, contact the best roofers in Atlanta today.

How much value does a new roof add to Atlanta homes?

Atlanta homeowners might recover up to 107% of the value of adding a new roof, according to the Remodeling Impact report. A new roof can add a great deal of value to your home by improving its curb appeal. It might even help you close a sale if you’re selling your home.

Contact the best roofers in Atlanta if you’re considering repairing, replacing or installing a new roof. 

What type of roof is best for Atlanta weather?

The weather in Atlanta often reaches hot and humid temperatures in the summer and temperature drops in the winter.

Metal roofs are often recommended if you live in a warmer climate like Atlanta. And they’re also good options for people who live in snowy climates. Metal roofs will last longer than asphalt shingle roofs. Metal roofs typically last 40 to 70 years, while the expected lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is 20 years. 

Contact one of the best roofers in the Atlanta area to help you choose the best roofing for your home.

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

Pablo and his crew did a great job! The roof looks great. We had a leak in the roof, he came out quoted and complete the whole roof replacement in less than week from start to finish. Price was very fair. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new roof.

My roof was leaking and I need it repaired. However I also wanted two skylights installed, need a gutter repair and had some rotting fascia board. Atlanta Impact Roofing was able to replace my roof, repair my gutter, replace the fascia board, and install my skylights for a price that was definitely fair. Two other roofers pricing was roughly the same but either excluded the gutter and fascia repair or the cost of the skylights. Pablo’s team worked tirelessly to install my roof and to check on me multiple times to ensure that I was happy with the work. Most importantly, the roof passed my 86 year old Dad’s seal of approval. I’d highly recommend Atlanta Impact Roofing for your roofing needs.

Johnny of Wheelers roofing was wonderful to work with. He was extremely responsive, gave me a fair estimate after thoroughly examining my roof and needs, and scheduled the work quickly. He replaced the pipe caps on roof vents, replaced several missing shingles, performed maintenance and replaced poorly laid shingles around all vent caps and even noticed that our sun roof needed maintenance and fixed that issue at no additional cost. He provided a 3 year warranty on his work and I felt so confident about Johnny and his commitment to excellence that we had no concerns having him repair our roof while we were away on vacation. I highly recommend him and his company for roofing repairs.

Meeting David from Fidelis Roofing was the best thing that happened to me. I had some wind damage shingles, leaks on atrium and roofs. I was worried about getting the right company to work on my roof and David made me feel very comfortable. David is highly knowledge, skilled and reasonable. He went above and beyond repairing other damage such as all penetrations, exposed nails and nail pops he came across while working on the roof. He also cleaned out the gutters all at a reasonable price. I’ll definitely be using Fidelis Roofing again and I strongly recommend them.

Great experience with Enduring Roofing. Roof was leaking and missing shingles. They came to assess the issue and came back in 2 days to repair. They also cleaned the gutters at a great price. The employees were pleasant and made sure everything was done correctly and clean up any debris that were on the roof as well on the ground. I would definitely recommend them.

I posted my roofing job on Thumbtack at 4 PM on Sunday afternoon. I received several quotes and Wheeler's was 30% lower than the competition. I gave Wheeler's Roofing the job at 5 PM on a Sunday and Johnny Wheeler himself showed up at 9 AM on Monday morning. The hole in my roof was patched by 11 AM. Johnny provided relevant insurance information, cleaned up the work site upon completion of the job and went above and beyond by blowing the leaves off of my roof.

Oscar was punctual for both the quote and the day of the repair. He was extremely thorough, the only one to actually get on the roof, and was the least expensive. I will definitely call him for any more carpentry or roof work needed.
