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.

We had the best experience with Aegis Roofing. They were quick to respond, and gave us a thorough roof inspection. We ended up not needing anything repaired, but we will be using them for our roof needs in the future!

Bryan and his crew replaced the roof on my parents house in one day, and we set up the entire process by email and voice mail. The roof looks great. Extra touches like painting the vent pipes to match the roof were an excellent service.

I had a leak in my roof due to the rain. They were able to schedule me within a few days to come provide a quote. I was expecting an entire roof replacement but he let me know that it wasn’t necessary and would be a waste of money. Loved the honesty. Some would have just replaced it to gain the revenue. Wonderful experience. Quick responses. Also sent me pictures to show me what they needed to repair and pictures of each step up Until completion of the work. Quality work!! Any roof related needs I would for sure go with wheelers roofing!! Thanks again:

David and Fidelis were great. They gave me a price for what the roof needed and didn't try to upsale me or convince me my roof needed more then it did. They showed up, got the job done and we're professionals the entire time. Highly recommended.

Mr. Allen was very pleasant to work with. He responded quickly and was on time for our scheduled consultation. Once he looked at our roof, he recommended not replacing the roof! I appreciate the professionalism and honesty. He’s not about just making money! I really appreciated that!

Very Professional. They were by far the best contractor I have ever worked with. I was very skeptical when looking for a roofing company. Bryan offered great service and the roofing crew was a well oiled machine. Arrived at sunrise and was leaving my property by 4 pm. Besides looking up and seeing a beautiful new roof on my home, there was no trace anyone had been on my property. Truly one of the best experiences I have ever had in dealing with a contractor. I am having Southern Roofing Solutions change out all my windows in the next month. I would highly, highly recommend this company.

Lee was the only company to call and that I did not have to chase. Based on my previous experience rehabbing homes, I found Lee very knowledgable of the subject and he considered all my roofing issues. He was courteous and interested in both my problem and my wife and I. He quoted a fair price and came the next day when he said he would with his crew. Everyone was respectful. They went right to their work and completeed it quickly. I have recommended Fowler Homes to my neighbors and to my associates in the investment field. I would not hesitate to call Lee for any roofing needed.

Called Alex for a roof repair. He arrived quickly when he sold he would and spent about 2 hours going over the whole roof and showing pics of what he observed and repairs he has done in the past that would remedy the problem. He quoted a very fair price and arrived to do the repair when he said he would. He found two much more serious issues that a prior roofer (who did not take the time to explain or go over at the end) said he fixed, but did a terrible job which could have lead to a major problem had Alex not caught it when he did. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone needing their roof looked at, even if you are not sure you have a problem as we could have waited but I am sure once the decking had rotted all the way thru, we would have been dealing with inside drywall repairs as well. No need to look elsewhere, Alex will do an outstanding job and for a very very fair price over the big companies who have to cover their advertising budgets! Also, he shows you pics of the job each step of the way, which no one has done for us in the past. Was very honest to work with and very glad we found him, as we will use him anytime we need roofing repairs in the future.

I am so thankful for Ray and the company he's built. I hired him initially to replace my roof. He gave me a fair quote and stayed true his word. He arrived on time with a crew, used quality materials, sent progress pictures via text, and went above and beyond to insure that the project was done correctly. He also showed genuine concern for my family and I as well as our property. I was so impressed with the roof I asked him for a quote to paint the house. I found his price again more than reasonable, and he was back within a week. He and his crew (who were very nice) pressure washed the house and had it painted in a couple of days. The paint was just as well done as the roof. I have a house I'm proud of and have Ray and his team to thank for it. I've been telling all my friends with upcoming projects to call on Ray. If you've read this far: I'm a real customer, no one put me up to this. I had a great experience and highly recommend The Art of Home Improvement to You.

Very responsive. Provided a quality job after reviewing what I needed and gave me a very reasonable quote. Also, cleaned out my gutters while he was here. Would definitely recommend Phil and would use him again for any roofing work I might need. If you want fairness and reasonableness, call him.

Alex was very friendly and professional overall. His quoted time and cost was right on target. He went beyond by calling me the next day to see if the roof was leaking. I was very hesitant as I had the same leak repaired 3 weeks prior only to find it was still leaking. I would definitely hire him as I know he definitely does good work and he guarantees his work.
