Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Can a handyman repair a roof?

A handyman may be able to repair simpler problems on a roof, such as damaged shingles or gutters. However, it’s important that you hire a pro who’s properly trained and skilled to handle your roof repairs. When in doubt, research the licensing requirements in your state, and review several handymen and roofers before making a decision. 

Is it better to repair or replace a roof?

It depends on the severity of the damage. If a falling branch or a windstorm damages an isolated patch of shingles, you could probably repair it. However, if the underlayment is damaged or if the whole roof is showing signs of wear, you might need to replace it. 

Always have a professional roofer near you assess the roof before making a decision.

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.

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.

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.  

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.

Do roofers offer remote or virtual services?

To find out the degree to which a roofing service can operate remotely, it’s best to contact local roofers and roofing repair specialists near you.

See if they will schedule a video call so that you can show them the project and get an idea of the cost. This will also allow them to give you recommendations on the type of roofing material, and the best time of year to do the project. You might also be able to book a roof installation or repair service far out in advance.

I highly recommend Balsley’s Roofing & Repairs! I contacted them at 10:30pm for a 24 hr emergency service. A tree had fell and went through my roof. They came out that night and put a tarp over the area to prevent any further damage. They also gave me a free quote on what the repair would cost. I’ll definitely be moving forward with their services. They were very professional, knowledgeable & took their workmanship very serious.

Dustin did some work on my roof. After it was completed it still had a leak. He came back and repaired it without any additional charge. I think he did an awesome job.

The team was quick to respond, reasonable, and very professional. I used them to repair a hole in my roof from when we removed our chimney. They reframed and patched it and looks fantastic. Would definitely recommend and use again!

Eric did a great job helping me identify the source of leaks in my roof, repairing, and fixing some other short cuts taken by the previous roofer. He was very professional and got the work done quickly. I'd definitely use him again if/when I have more work to be done.

Highly recommended!! Out of all the contractors, they were the only ones to do a thorough investigation to identify the sources of the leak. The pricing was very fair (a good value). They showed up on schedule, completed the repairs and even took care of a few other areas... They will definitely be my first call for any of future roofing needs.

Chad was really great! We are in the process of selling our home, and the buyer wanted some nail pops in the roof to be fixed. Chad was able to come the same day I contacted him to give an estimate, and came back the next day to do the repairs. He did great work, his rates were very reasonable & competitive, and he was very friendly on top of that. Would definitely recommend!

He showed up and gave me a written estimate and performed the job as expected. He repaired my leaking roof and even applied some drywall mud where it had leaked ( which was not part of the estimate). He stands behind his work and so far no problems, I hope there are none but I know he will come and fix it if there is. Highly recommend his services. Very nice guy who explains everything he's doing and everything he has done.
