Mark S. says, "After putting off window replacement for years, I found these guys online. The friendly professional sales rep came to my house, showing me all my options with full specs. The precision construction & high-tech materials used let me know these were the best quality windows I've seen. I chose triple-pane, argon-krypton gas-filled, with a UV-tint. The quote was very reasonable. I didn't need to look any further. The 3 installers came out on time, courteous, respectful, very competent experienced professionals. They were very accommodating to my needs. In 1 full day, they installed 13 double-hung windows, each one custom made with precision and a nice snug fit, without disturbing the interior trim. After every window was installed, they cleaned the area and vacuumed well. Every window was installed beautifully, better than I could have imagined. I was shown the proper closure of the sashes for best seal, and the beautifully engineered twin locks, effortless tilt-to-clean operation. I am so glad I got the UV tint since I get migraines from UV glare. It also keeps the house cooler in summer. The house is much tighter, even on gusty days, these windows are solid. In the 3-yrs I've had these, no problems whatsoever. I would hire Coastal again without hesitation. Great people, Highly recommended."See more

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.

Reviews for Gloucester roofing professionals
Betty D.
Mario was very responsive and professional. He replaced the flashing around my chimney as the roof occasionally leaked in that area when the wind and rain was strong. We have asphalt shingles on one side of chimney and membrane roof on the other side. He made suggestions to avoid our problem and then followed through with repair. He was a pleasure to work with and provided a professional job. Started early afternoon and stayed to finish the project until 8:00 PM. His company is new, but he has been working in roofing repair for many years with his father. I do not hesitate to recommend his company.

J&T Roofing went above and beyond expectations for my roofing project. My insurance company was cancelling my homeowners' insurance due to a roof that "looked worn." After contacting J&T, (1) he came and quoted the job within 2 days of being contacted; (2) he submitted the most competitive bid, about 15% lower than any of the other three contractors that had bid the job; (3) with the time pressure to get the roof replaced, he was able to move a job around to prioritize my job (granted: the supplies for his other job didn't come in on time, so that was good for him to be able to redirect his crew for the day!) (4) they completed a full shingle replacement of a wrap-around porch in a single day, about 1000 sq ft., and matched my existing shingles perfectly; (5) he was flexible: I already had a dumpster onsite for another project, so I contacted him to see if he'd subtract the cost of the dumpster from his bid since I already had one with lots of room. No problem! And that saved me hundreds of dollars on the overall cost of the job; (6) he was friendly and a pleasure to be around. After the job was finished and we met so I could pay the man, we ended up sitting out front and shooting the breeze together for a while. He's a really good guy, and I was impressed all around. As I mentioned, I was having insurance issues, and Joe went way beyond my expectations to help me out. The day of the roof replacement, I was driving back home from out of state when my insurance company demanded a new roofing contract that showed the date the roof would be replaced in order to renew my insurance. I contacted Joe, and within the hour he had rewritten the contract adding the needed info, signed it, and texted it to me so I could submit it to the insurance company. Upon receipt of the contract, the insurance company changed the criteria for reinstating my insurance; instead of just needing a signed and dated contract, which I had just provided to them, they now required photos of the newly reshingled roof. I contacted Joe while I was still on the road, and he returned to the job site and took multiple photos and texted them to me, so I was able to submit them to the insurance company while still en route. I thought he was still onsite when I asked for the photos (I wouldn't have asked otherwise) -- I only found out later that he traveled back to the site to take the photos for me. My insurance has been renewed! I was hesitant at first to go with J&T Roofing because of the low number of reviews and that he's only been in business for a year. But it turns out, he's been working with his father forever and been in the business for years. Got to meet his father, too. Very warm and professional. Because of Joe's timeliness, his professionalism, his quality of work and his competitive pricing, I can only say thank you. Thanks, Joe, for the great and timely job on my roof; and thanks for going well beyond what should be expected of any contractor by running around to fulfill the constantly changing requirements of my insurance company.
