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 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. 

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

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.

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.

5++ stars to Bill and his team. Bill responded quickly to our request for an estimate to replace our garage roof and within a week we had a new roof at a price that was much less expensive than other quotes that we had received. Bill was also very quick to respond to any of our messages and questions and his team did an outstanding job replacing the roof and the clean up afterwards. I would highly recommend Bill and his team to anyone needing roof repair or replacement.

Great company! Phillip and Cole were both very kind and courteous. Each were accessible via email, text, and phone. Worked with my schedule to meet and discuss the project. Both are extremely knowledgeable on roofing. They both came out and met with the insurance adjuster and got me a new roof due to hail damage. Roof looks great! Highly recommend using Kingsmen Construction.

After having a contractor that didn't fix my roofing problem and my roof still leaking. I hired Steve to help solve my issue. He was honest and was very responsive in getting the work completed and great with communication. So many contractors lack these two vital things that Steve does well. His work was great as well. I recommend him for anyone's roofing problems.

Vinny is very easy to work with and offered the best replacement roof at a reasonable price. I received several estimates before deciding on which company to go with. I have a family member who had past experience with roofing. He looked at each estimate and said Roof Bros. included the important items that none of the others included. Vinny made the entire process easy and worry free. His crew was awesome! They were very efficient and cleaned up everything. I cannot give enough praise for this company. I would encourage anyone needing a roof to contact Vinny. You won't be sorry you did. By the way, I didn't know Vinny or anything about his company prior to having hail damage to my roof.

The United Roofing team and Eddy in particular were excellent when they replaced some leaking/old pipe collars on our roof. Quick responses. Thorough free estimate which included photos of the roof areas. And was willing to negotiate a good price knowing I was considering other companies as well. Their work was excellent and above and beyond what I anticipated. Punctual and timely in competing the project work. Also friendly and helpful.

After waiting a month and a half on another company to begin the job that originally took the job to roof my house, I became frustrated and decided to take a gamble on Circle City Roofing, and so glad I did. They not only completed the job in less than a day, they did an excellent job on my roof. Not to mention the clean up was superb as well. You cannot go wrong, by no means, with this company. They are a great group of roofers!! Thanks again Circle City!

Working with Bill at Circle City Roofing was an absolute dream. We stayed in constant communication throughout the entire process and I was never left wondering what/when/how about anything. All my concerns with my previous roof and gutters were heard and addressed with the replacement. The quality of work was excellent, the work was done in a day, and the job was done for thousands less than I was quoted by another company (and their quote didn’t include gutters). I’d recommend Circle City Roofing and Bill to anyone- I already have!

We had a really great experience with Eddie from United Roofing! We needed him to cut a vent into our roof for a bathroom exhaust fan without having much attic space - he came with a creative solution and went above and beyond, all while being affordable and very professional.
