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 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 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. 

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.

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.

Gary checked the roof and the leak I had. He determined it was a minor leak, fixed it, and told me I didn't need a new roof. I was delighted with the service I received and the news that a new roof was unnecessary. He showed me the problem and explained what he did, which was very helpful. He was superb.

Gary and his crew were great to work with, easy to get in contact with and very quick to get the job done. He is also very affordable and we plan to hire him to replace a roof on another property we own too. Highly recommend for anyone needing a roof or repairs that isn't a millionaire

The roof shingle were replaced due to hail damage. Harris Construction (Brian) was very easy to work with and he was open and upfront on what needed to be done. He even gave suggestions on how to improve attic ventilation in conjunction with the new roof, which we had a problem with on very hot days. The job was sub-contracted to another contractor which is not unheard of but i was not aware of in the beginning. The sub-contracted roofing company did a good job other than one flashing section over the front door. Brian quickly corrected the problem. I would use Harris Construction for other projects.

Gary was so easy to work with. He and his crew were fast on completing our project. They went above and beyond on making sure our tile roof was in good shape!

Josh did amazing work. He was able to make it out for an estimate quickly (which I needed since there was a hole in my roof), and his quote was entirely reasonable. After the quote, it rained for a week, but he was able to get the roof replaced the day it stopped raining. He was available to answer all my questions, and responded promptly whenever something came up. His service was affordable, professional, and his crew did a phenomenal job. 10/10 would recommend.

My experience with Scott at Urgent Care Roofing was awesome. He answered all of my questions and was very quick with his response time. I had no clue what color shingles would look good with my house (previous color was awful). Scott made a recommendation that I decided to go with, and it was definitely the right choice. The pricing was competitive compared to the other quotes I received, which was a main concern of mine. I couldn't be happier with my decision and would recommend Urgent Care to anyone in need of roofing repair/replacement.

Had a great experience all around. Bill was super communicative, very straightforward with the details and pricing, and the crew came and knocked out the job quickly. I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome. The roofing and inside finished wall looks amazing.

roofing repair of leaking around two dormers. On time, quality work and excellent clean up. I like when workers leave and all that is left behind is quality work. Price seemed a bit high, but you pay for quality.

What can I say, Kevin came out Monday and looked at my roof on my shed. They don't come as professional as he. He was punctual, pretty cool, knowledgeable, and friendly. On Wednesday morning, the roofer came out and he was just as friendly, polite, knowledgeable, pretty cool, and hard working. He got the job done quick! Overall, I am really pleased with the outcome of the roof. The pictures don't lie. Now the shed is in like new condition. If you're wanting quality work, knowledgeable guys, who are punctual, hard working, respomds quickly, out does themselves, get in touch with these guys at Unisource and you won't be disappointed.

Gary is a consummate professional who visited our home to provide advice on several issues that concerned us. He sent an itemized proposal within 24 hours of visiting our home and was able repair our leaky tile roof and install safety handrails in our shower and outside entry in one visit. While on our roof, he observed that the chimney on our 85 yr old house is in need of repair, took pictures to show what needs to be done and suggested a time line for addressing the problems. (No hard sell on immediately fixing it). He is thorough and clearly takes pride in providing quality work. We highly recommend Gary, and you will, too.

I was able to get my leak fixed on my roof by another company on the spot…BUT…I do appreciate the quick response from Kevin and his fair pricing. Even though there wasn’t any work done by his company, I am sure to reference them to others due to his professionalism and quick response to my issues.

Josh and his crew did an amazing job. They started putting a new roof on when I left for work and they were done by the time I got home. The shingles looked really nice. We are very pleased. Josh and crew were very punctual and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Josh was helpful walking me through my insurance company procedures. I would definitely give him the highest rating.

Jose and his team were amazing to work with! We started just getting a quote for a new roof but then we ended up having him refresh and update our whole house to get it ready to sell. New carpet, fresh paint, cutting down a dead tree CCF and updating the kitchen were all on the list. The house looks amazing and we would definitely recommend Pinto Homes to anyone in the area! I’ve included some before and after a :)

I reached out to Daniel he called me and we set up a time for him to come look at my roof he found the problem explained what needed to be done. Gave us a price let us know when the job would be done. He showed up and his workers got right to work did the job cleaned up and the job was done in a timely manner. And Daniel was very considerate about letting us know what was going on very professional and polite. Would definitely recommend him! 5 stars for sure!

Bill who deals with the roofs/exteriors was great and provided a quote quickly. He made me aware that ARK does complete renovations. His customer service gets 5stars. Now Rick, on the other hand who does interiors came to my property and didn’t seem interested in the job and continued to showed that by not following up with a quote or additional questions. I’m ALL about good customer service and communication to which Rick did not provide. If he wasn’t interested in doing the job due to whatever reason, I wish he would’ve just said so as opposed to just disappearing. Now I don’t want to approach this company with any other project I have. Oh well...the search continues.
