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 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 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.

Chris is the man... I was in a time crunch to get a very small repair done on roof before listing house for sale. A lot of contractors may blow off a small job but he called me same day and met me at the house. Work was professional and thorough, he’s definitely earned my business for all my future roofing needs. A+

Hugo was super professional, punctual, and an honest contractor to work with. He was able to quickly quote a competitive price and schedule me the next day for a roof leak at one of my investment properties. Furthermore he was able to spot a few other areas in my roof and fix them at no cost. I couldn't recommend Hugo more for any other exterior repair needs.

Needed a new roof at my investment property. Fernando was on time from quoting thru installation. He needed no supervision to complete the job, made the repair recommendations, and quickly repaired what was needed. He sent pictures of their progress and what repairs were being done outside the scope of work. The job took him and his crew less than 2 days. Smooth process. Friendly guy. Would be a reliable roofing contractor for investors who aren’t able to be on site often. Highly Recommend.

They sub-contracted my project out and the service and quality of workmanship was horrible!!! I was schedule 3 weeks out from acceptance of the quote, I had no idea the project would be completed by another contractor that didn’t speak English. I wouldn’t agree to have the work done had I been told this ... as a result my HOA is requiring the shingles be replaced to match roof (very disturbed that the replaced them with a totally different color-my roof is only 5 to years old) and the gutter screens are the complete incorrect size and my shingles have been lifted to accommodate the incorrect size!! And to make matters worse my gutters and roof appear to be worse than before they repairs were done. To say the least I’m extremely disappointed and I’m hiring another company. The consumer should alway know who’s going to complete the service work. I can’t trust that the work will be completed properly and to my satisfaction. The original project manger is scheduled to come out and take a look the the completed work at 7:30 tomorrow April 12th. The only thing I want done is the shingles replaced to the original color. I can’t take off from work to watch them while work is completed.

The first sub contractor did a lot of work without first locating the leak, which was the entire reason I hired a roofer. I had to call him back a few times, and he continued to bang on the roof, replacing shingles, vent boots, etc... The owner started getting annoyed with ME because his sub could not do the repair properly. Finally, they sent another guy who knew how to locate and fix the leak. Took him maybe an hour or so all together... If Summit had sent this guy first, they might get a 4 or 5 start review from me. Unfortunately, the guy they sent initially chose to waste a lot of time and materials replacing things without locating the leak.
