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.

Very quick, professional and well-priced service is what I received from Brad at Wiesen Roofing. I was lucky enough to have him come out within a week of bidding the job to fix my leaky roof a few days before a big rain hit. So far no more leaks!

The leak in the roof was fixed in a timely manner and Brad was great to work with. The estimate told us exactly what was going to be done.

Arlen was professional, prompt and great to work with. I'll definitely use him for future roofing needs. His team took on a small job and did a great job.

He was prompt, his crew did a good job except they had to be called back to re-roof the shed. My biggest concern was that the owner lied to us about having the roof torn off. We only had 1 layer and he told us that it was the City of Wichita policy. We checked with the Inspection Dept. and it is NOT a city policy that only 1 layer must be torn off. Later, he changed his story that it was company policy, yet it is nowhere on the proposal.

Very nice guy. He also informed us of other problems that we have on our roof....plus that our gutters need to be cleaned out! He will do the other repairs as soon as he can get to them.

I have had many leaks on the brand new roof he put on. Called him out 3 times since (it's only been maybe 2 months). Never shows up on time, sometimes not for days later.

If you are in need of any construction work to be done by a reputable company; I can tell you, from experience, that Midwest Construction is the best. From beginning to end Mr. Flora was most helpful. He explained everything upfront and took care of every little detail for me. His crew worked diligently from morning to well after dark tearing off both layers of the old roofing; down to the decking, replaced new roof and cleaned my property, in one day! Well done and thank you again! An honest review from a very satisfied customer.. Carole

Allservice Construction has been a Godsend for me. They have painted the entire interior of my rental property. They have been responsible for getting my rental property totally move in ready. It all started with the painting. I then had an insurance claim to repair a roof, and drywall and paint in 2 bedroons that had water damage. I just kept adding things ro the "to do list." Fred acxepted and handled everything. No matter my request, he had no problem completing them, and I had many. He even changed the color of a wall after I told him I didn't like the color on the wall. I have alot more exterior work to be done that he will be completing. I can go on and on about this company. I am just so happy I found them. I had already looked around before finding him. No one could get to my requests. If there is something he doesn't not do, he knows someone that does, from carpet and floor cleaning, to an electrician. Working with him and his family has been a pleasure. I wish them the best. If he made out of state calls, I would hire him in a heartbeat. Bless you for everything you did for me.
