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.

Wheeler's Roofing did a great job with repairing our roof. They were always on time and efficient. Johnny Wheeler is extremely professional and honest, took the time to answer all of our questions and completed the project next day for us. We will continue to use them for maintenance work and would definitely recommend them to anyone needing roofing services.

We were looking for a roofing professional to replace a roof that was nearing its end of life. We contacted several professionals and Pablo at Atlanta Impact Roofing was the best by far. He answered all of my questions, whenever I had them, kept us up to date with his schedule and was even able to accommodate a request I had for the dumpster, saving us a couple hundred dollars. His crew arrived on time and completed the job in 1 day. I am very pleased with Atlanta Impact Roofing.

I evaluated several roofing companies before deciding on David (owner) at Rackley Roofing. David is very personable and always has a calm demeanor. Pricing was very reasonable. Quality of work is top-notch. We are extremely happy with the look and craftsmanship of their work. David's roofing team is also very professional - very nice, but all business when the clock starts - I love it. David said his crew would start at 0730 and they were there at 0650. I HIGHLY recommend Rackley Roofing & Supply.

Simple Attic Fan Installation and Roof Maintenance FAILURE! After three visits from his company over a six week period, countless emails, texts, phone calls, & no-shows for appointments, the attic fan Georgia Roof Repair installed on our roof is leaking onto my ceiling whenever it rains and they've yet to show up to fix it after numerous confirmed appointments and promises to fix the leak. Their lack of professionalism and unethical conduct of business has cost me ridiculous amounts of time and is ultimately going to cost me more to repair the damage Georgia Roof Repair has caused to my roof than amount I originally agreed to pay their company. Consumer BEWARE!

Danilo was very professional, arrived on time, thoroughly cleaned our gutters and inspected the roof. He pointed out areas of concern and even repaired/caulked small holes on the roof at no additional charge. We will definitely recommend Aegis.

Alex is a true professional that thoroughly understands his craft. I had one contractor come out that only identified one area on my roof that was leaking. Alex came out and thoroughly examined my the condition of my roof and identified all of the problem areas. Alex also helped me to climb up the ladder and onto my roof and showed me the areas that needed to be repaired. He worked with me regarding the cost and he and his employee did an awesome job with the repairs. I would definitely recommend Alex Bello for your roof repair needs.

I received several quotes from roofing companies and David’s was very fair. I’ve been a home owner for 19 years and have worked with countless companies. David has been the most personable and responsive. I didn’t have to wait hours for a response and he truly will do what he says he will do. I am happy with the roof and the cleanup. I hope I never need a replacement roof but if I do I’d call David.

Needed repair on the roof and painting the ceiling where the leak appeared. Alex was on time, both for the estimate and doing the job. I was very please with him and the employees that completed the job very professionally and highly recommend Statewide roofing. Should I ever need repair and or maintenance work in the future, Alex will be the first I am going to call on.

Scott was extremely professional, punctual, and helpful. Although it turned out not to be a leaky roof, he took the time to help me identify the root cause of the problem. I very much appreciated his time and sharing his expert knowledge allowed me to determine a plan of action to resolve the issue. I would wholeheartedly and without hesitation recommend Scott and Sherlock Roofing and will definitely call on them in the future should the need arise.

We had a satellite to fall and damaged the roof. The job was to remove satellite and repair the damaged shingles. Blueprint roofing showed up late and I had to call them to find out if they were coming. Was supposed to arrive at 8 am arrived after 12, just our luck it rained. They removed the satellite and did something to shingles (not quite sure what) - was told the rain caused little damage and wouldn't need to repair for a year or two. However, had another roofer come out the next day and they show us the damage caused by the rain and satellite...the 2nd roofer repaired the roof and removed the satellite from the property...was disappointed they didn't offer to repair the roof correctly. Thanks for removing the dangling satellite but we had to call another roofer to repair the roof properly & haul the satellite off. Updated - Not blaming you for the rain, just should have communicated you couldn't get here by 8 am and I know I had another appointment thus the reason I wasn't home when you got here. Your initial quote was $125 not $100 - for satellite & shingle repair. I am a realistic person so I know you may have to reassess when you look at the job. Either way job is done, wish you all the best.

He is was on time. Very knowledgeable and listen to my concerns. My roof was leaking. He concealed all the leaks around the vent pipe and vents. His price was very reasonable where as other roofers charged 50%-60% more.

Josh and his team at Clark Brothers were great to work with in getting our home repaired after a storm caused major damage to our roof, soffits, and siding. Josh is a very good communicator and helped with the insurance claim. I recommend them highly.

Alex from Statewide responded to my call and completed the work the same day. All other contractors wouldn't even come to the house for two or three weeks. Alex is very knowledgeable about roofing and was able to trouble shoot my problems very quickly. Would highly recommend Alex and Statewide.

From the moment I placed the request for roofing estimates on the App, Bryan was very professional and responsive. He came to my home on my requested day and time and even provided an Eagleview of my home in advance. He clearly communicated what the work would entail and worked within the short time frame I needed the work completed in. He was flexible when I changed the material I needed to use and assisted answering any questions I had. When I noticed a few things that needed a "second look" when the work was finished, he sent his crew leader to my home on a Saturday and the items were addressed. It was a great experience and I will recommend Southern Roofing Solutions to friends and family.

I had Ray do a roof replacement on my home. I had a great experience with Ray. I was pleased with the workmanship, the communication, and the price. They even did a few extras at no additional cost. I'm very pleased overall and would recommend Ray to family and friends. I plan on hiring Ray in the future for other projects.

Tom, was great. I called 7-8 different companies and he was by far the most responsive and personal. He came out the same day, to assess and quote the job. The price was fair, not necessarily the lowest, but the his years of experience will save you in the long run. We have agreed that he will be our roofing company and we entered into an annual agreement for maintenance. Rick

VT Consulting was quick to respond and offered rough pricing sight unseen. When they arrived they had to increase the price very slightly, which was fair because the roof repair was in a difficult location. The price was still lower than others because they were able to combine my job with others in the area. The owner is prompt and courteous with his follow-up. Thank you!

I had a very difficult roof replacement due to the tight space allowance. Blueprint was the only company that offered to actually replace it as opposed to coat it. I had several others that declined to even try. Chris is very responsive which is nice. There was a scheduling mix up and Chris went the extra mile to get the job done on time. Very much appreciated. I’d use Blueprint again.

I've worked with A LOT of contractors since moving into my older home almost two years ago. It got to the point where I was starting to get jaded and it was beginning to affect my being able to enjoy the house. I've learned that a good contractor (like a good auto mechanic) is one in a million. Once you find them, KEEP THEM! They are worth their weight in gold! Thank God I came across Alex and his team. He is one of the few professionals that have everything that I expect. Communication is spectacular. They actually clean up after themselves, they pay attention to detail, and the work is solid. Alex has actually done a few jobs for me. I had some rotten fascia board that needed replacing about 8 months ago. He came in and not only replaced the fascia, but made sure that he attached the proper flashing and shingles to prevent any future issues. 8 months later everything is holding up well. Then, just recently, I had a skylight spring a leak and brought Alex back in. He explained exactly what was happening and what my options were. I also showed him some other roof issues that had cropped up and he was able to walk me through what I was seeing there as well. They were able to schedule me just a few days after the initial consultation and were in and out in just shy of a work day. He took pictures before, during and after the work. He reviewed the images with me and explained their process. I waited a while to write this review because I wanted to get a couple of good downpours on the construction before I made any judgement. Well, after 3 big rains, I couldn't be happier. No leaks whatsoever. Statewide is a keeper. I will definitely be using their services in the future.
