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.

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 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.

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 adding a new roof increase a home’s value?

Home sellers who add new roofing to their homes recover as much as 107% of its value, according to the Remodeling Impact report. If you’re thinking about selling your home, consult with your realtor or a real estate expert to find out which repairs you should prioritize before you put your home on the market.

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.

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.

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.  

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.

Came by the same day I hired Jose. Replaced three shingles and caulked certain areas on my roof when he was only required to replace two shingles.

Brandon See was very professional, punctual and they got the job done. Seems like we were missing about 20 roof shingles but they charged us for 12 only since their original estimate was about 12 shingles.

I have to admit, knowing that I was going to get my whole roof replaced (not by insurance but out of pocket) I was prepared for the worst. I fully expected to have to be diligent against being taken advantage of and ready to have the process be contentious. I got a number of quotes, and Restoration Roofing was not the most expensive but not the cheapest. The thing that stood out most is Jose. He came in and did a very straightforward estimate, no BS, no hard sell, just presented the facts and a straight quote. He spent a good deal of time with me talking about the process, and he was candid on helping me evaluate options and was honest with his recommendations. His knowledge and expertise were apparent (he took one look at our existing roof and predicted the problems we were already having. ) We came to a fair price, and the crew was out the next week. The crew worked hard for three days on our roof, and from everything I saw they were diligent and conscientious. They saw that the installation over our porch needed shorter nails for the best aesthetic look and went ahead and got them. There was a misunderstanding about the scope of the work (truly nothing I can blame anyone for), but there was no specific demand in the middle of the job. Jose definitely seems more interested in doing a good job and having a satisfied customer as opposed to the "gotcha" tactics that many of his competitors engage in. It's the week after the installation and I still haven't paid a dime. Jose did the job without us paying anything up front (not even materials!) and even said afterward that he was giving us some time to make sure we were satisfied with the job. You know that's someone who is confident in the work that he does. If there is any problem, I have confidence that they will stand by their work. And since they are certified by Certainteed, the warranty we will have is just an additional level of reassurance. Replacing a roof is one of those things that every homeowner dreads. Honestly, I couldn't have expected a smoother process, and our roof looks fantastic. If you want any more specific feedback, I'm happy to have Jose give out my contact information as a reference.

Had a leaky roof in need of some repairs and I was very pleased with the entire experience working with this company. Quick to respond, good communication, very fair pricing, quality work, easy to get on their schedule, and provided photos of all the repairs as soon as they were complete. Couldn’t have asked for a smoother process or better service. Highly recommend!

Thank you Brian! He did good work on fixing the trim board on roof side where frame fell off. With all this rough weather, he came on time and finished on time. Also certainly appreciate his gesture to look at other loose frames and fix them as needed . Great professional to reach out to!

Drew cleat me posted on when he is coming and when he came to see the leaking roof issue he found few shingles were missing. It was late in the evening and it was suppose to rain/snow that night so he went out of the way to buy shingles and got work done that night. He is very professional and polite and would call him again if needed.

Jon came out to provide a quote for our property - he was here when he said he would be here, provided a detailed quote, and gave us space to make a decision. We appreciated his professionalism and his relaxed nature (i.e. no high-pressure sales tactics, etc.) Jon's team was here on time and finished by mid-afternoon - they were very friendly and cleaned up everything before they left. We are very pleased with our new roof!
