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 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. 

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.

Luis, the owner of LCT Roofing gave us a very competitive quote to replace our roof. They arrived when scheduled, stripped 2 layers, added plywood to the entire roof, and did a great shingling job. We were very impressed with their ability to save our old wood gutters by installing metal gutter inserts! They protected our house and yard, cleaned up well and finished sooner than expected. Couldn’t be happier, and we highly recommend them.

From the begging to the end reliable, professional, prompt and explained in details with pictures on his phone the issue that I was induring. He taught me some things about roofs today. lol. It was not a big job but he treated it like it was one. His price was much better than the competitors and very reasonable. I feels so comfortable with Castro that when anything happens to my roof he will be the first person I call. 👍

We hired H&R Roofing to install a new roof on our large three story Victorian home. They also Installed new roof on front porch, installed new siding on three gables, and did some gutter work. Ray was outstanding in communicating details on all aspects of job from the estimate, materials, and scheduling and did so in a timely fashion. My mom is very fussy and has high expectations. She was very pleased with the job and commented that the H&R crew was best group of workers she has ever seen. They arrived early, worked very hard, stayed late and did a fantastic job cleaning up. Another benefit was that Ray was able to provide us with photos of rotten wood that needed to be replaced on the front porch. This was very helpful to see. We had a couple of very minor issues involving a gutter connection and a small piece of gutter that was missing. Ray said he would correct and he did! We were very happy with the work and Ray's professionalism throughout. We highly recommend.

I hired Mr Fonseca to roof my elderly mothers roof and if i could add an extra star to the rating i would. I am also a licensed contractor but to old to get on roofs and i have seen too meany fly by night contractors only interested in how fast and how much they can make, and care to little about honesty and quality. He did what he said he was going to do, for the price he said he would do it for and in the time he said he would do it. That's the quality part of his business. The honesty part is when my mom asked him to do some extra projects around the house and he did it after hours with one of his men for a price that was as if it was his own mother. When you consider the helpers wage, and the extra dumpster weight that is all he charged. I believe my mom gave him more than he asked for and he deserved it. Yes i would hire him again and recommend him also.
