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.

The Job included removing/replacing the entire roof. I called in to have my roof replaced and needed it to be done asap. I just purchased this new house with a roof that was definitely beyond its life and an eyesore to the neighborhood. So after having 10 different qutoes/inspections, Southern Roofing Solutions was the best choice for me. Bryan was able to give me a great quote and was able to complete the work just two days later. I was really impressed with the quick turnaround and how my roof turned out. I definitely would recommend Southern Roofing Solutions for anyone that needs a roof repair. Their prices cant be beat for the products that they provide.

I needed a quick quote on a roofing repair. Sherlock Roofing was prompt, professional, and thorough. Couldn't have asked for more! We ended up not moving forward on the purchase of the home due to the amount of work needed, but wouldn't hesitate to use them for our future roofing needs, based on the pleasant experience I had.

Phil is a high quality contractor. He really knows construction and roofing in particular. He repaired a small leak in my roof at a very reasonable rate. The repaired area is not noticeable, even on close inspection. Other contractors wanted to replace an entire section of roof due to one small problem area, that no one but Phil could find. This would have left the roof with 2 different shades of shingles, and an obvious unsightly repair. This literally saved me thousands of dollars.

Danilo has a high work ethic and exceptional craftsmanship. He installed a cedar shingle roof on our pool deck and we couldn’t have been more impressed. So much so we called him back to repair the roof on our shed. We will definitely use him for all future roofing needs.

I had several quotes from different roofing companies and Nailed It Roofing very clearly stood out as the most detailed and professional. Kevin takes great pride in his business and his team and it shows in the finished product. His crew showed up right on time and finished the job in one day. They spent a lot of time very carefully cleaning up behind themselves and my roof looks fantastic!

Southern Roofing Solutions did top notch work! They matched my shingles and were able to work me into the schedule in under a week. Bryan Rhodes was in constant communication as he dealt with not only the rain but my busy travel schedule. His crew was on time and wrapped up the job in about a half day, replacing the roof on my 15'x15' workshop in the woods. They left my property spotless. I would highly recommend them for any roofing project you have!

I had a very great experience. I never thought changing roof is an easy task. David is an excellent person and gave me an overview of the steps and also explained how the pricing is and had a very excellent team which did an amazing job on the roof and the chimney siding repair along with it.

Aegis Roofing delivered a quality solution at a fair price. On-time delivery, competitive price, delivered by trained and safety-conscious staff, and it met and exceeded my expectations. The project was completed within 36 hours of drop off of Roofing materials, meaning the interruption to my daily routine was minimal. Even the dumpster delivery and pick up was seamless, on time, and non-disruptive. I would gladly refer Aegis Roofing to anyone looking for a quality job done at a fair price. Very pleased and highly recommended!!!!

The side (flashing) of my roof needed to be repainted according to my HOA. The Rackley Roofing team was able to resolve the problem quickly and for a great price. They took care of it quickly and we're flexible with the days and times I was available. The only feedback I have is to give your clients a heads up that you only accept cash or check. I had to scramble when it came to payment since I was unaware of this. A minor issue and worth it considering they took care of an annoyance for me. Thank you, Rackley Roofing!
