Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How can I find out if a roofer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To find out whether a roofer is an essential service provider during the COVID-19 pandemic, start by visiting your state or city’s government website. Local governments are providing up-to-date information for residents during this time.

A national guideline is available on CISA’s website, Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This page addresses 16 different categories of essential infrastructure sectors, but note that not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.  

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

I contacted Aaron via Thumbtack because (I thought) I needed a new roof. Aaron came right over the same day for an inspection and told me my roof still looks great and doesn't need replacement. I was really thankful to have his expert opinion and honesty. He also showed me how to look up previous permits for my home, which was an unexpected bonus. In the future, I will call Aaron if I need anything done with my roof. Highly recommend.

I cannot say enough. . We had a small but concerning leak in our roof around our dryer vent that showed as a small line in my daughters room. After so many people who either didn’t write back or quoted me a new roof, A1A, in a ten minute free inspection, took pictures, explained the problem, offered next day service and helped me sleep a little better. Knowing that there are good roofing people in a sea of so many insurance chasers and big cooperate roofers, is a real relief. Thank you!!!!! AM

Excellent experience with these guys. Very straight forward and quick for a roof replacement. We had to navigate the process of dealing with the Historical Society and it was not an issue at all.

After the destruction from two powerful hurricanes, Matthew andIrma, my roof was in need of serious repair or replacement. When my attempts to patch up the several leaks with asphalt based sealants failed and the leaks became more widespread and frequent, I interviewed several roofing contractors as to my options and the costs involved, settling upon StormGuard and Bram because of the no-nonsense, honest, straightforward professional approach he conducted himself and presented my several available material options and related accessories. Although Bram estimated that the project from start to finish could be finished in one day, because of difficulties in removing the 3 layers of shingles and the old felt paper, and the removal and replacement of decayed wood rafters and decking, the work took 3 full days. On top of that, when the old rolled roofing was removed from above my bathroom, the ceiling collapsed, leaving a enormous hole in the structure and thick piles of debris throughout the bathroom, covering nearly except the bathtub. Bram kept me informed each and every step of the way, pointing out the ease and the extremely difficult parts of replacing my roof. The courtesy and professional care that Bram and each and every member of his crew exceeded my expectations by a very long shot, even though working in the near triple-digits heat and frequent thunderstorms. The StormGuard team arrived each day prior to the agreed-upon start time and started industriously at 7am, the appointed time and remained consistent until either the weather or darkness prevented going further, an unbelievable sense of dedication and service to me, the customer. I just wish that other contractors and their teams showed such a high level of respect as these StormGuard individuals did. All in all, StormGuard fixed everything wrong with my roof and made the roof look breathtaking beautiful, considering how ugly, deteriorated and difficult the replacement project turned out to be. Bram, the contractor worked with me regarding the extra expenses in completing the roofing project, knowing that I am on limited income and had no homeowners insurance coverage for such situations as this. I highly recommend StormGuard for anything having to do with a roof, without being high-pressured like dealing with some sleazy used car salesman. Bram and company provides expert evaluation, expedient professional work, and the most open and super competitive pricing structure of the nearly a dozens roofing professionals that I came into contact with regarding my old roof.

I worked with Carlton and have to say he was very professional and courteous. From start to finish I was kept in the loop and informed. The guys did a fantastic job on the roof and they were very aware of the surrounding areas making sure to keep everything clean as they went. Took extra precautions not to make tire marks in my grass when delivering shingles, that was appreciated. Roof looks great and I will recommend them to others!

Worked with Chris on a recent re-roof. He was great, to say the least! Went very smoothly and very fast - probably the quickest turn around for a roof in all the deals I've done throughout Florida. There were a couple hiccups with the city along the way, none caused by Chris, but Chris swiftly resolved each issue to keep the project on track. Will definitely be calling South Edge Construction for my next renovation in the area. I highly recommend them.

Chris and the entire South Edge construction team have a top notch business. Between customer service, workmanship, reliability, and availability we couldn’t of asked for anything more. We are so thankful for our new roof and the work they have done. HIGHLY recommend for any roofing project needed. They left our house and surroundings in great condition, and worked in a timely manner to get everything accomplished! We will 100% use them again if we need any work done in the future.

The re-roof was done flawlessly. There is not enough room here to write on what a great job Reliant roofing did. The company went above and beyond. Gods grace was shown throughout entire job. Mike, Cameron, Shawn and the entire team were continually accommodating and the crew was hardworking, skilled, and very contentious. When the job was done the house looks like a million dollars! Recommend this company 100%...our house is now a showpiece on our street. Thanks Reliant.
