Robert D. says, "Let me start off by saying I know next to nothing about central ac or it's repairs so I can't really tell anyone if I got a good deal ,you would have to make that determination on your own from my review.. Messages thumbtack on a Friday and on Saturday had 5 matches , Robert was only one that was ok communicating through thumbtack messages . We messages 5-7 times then I called him Sunday afternoon , he called me later that same day to schedule a day to look at my unit . Tue he arrived on time , called 39 mins ahead to say he was on his way , he arrived with another guy ( forgot the name ) Both were very nice and easy to talk to . They took 20 mins looking and taking apart the unit and then determined it was a piece that the wiring all plugs into that needed replacing ( it had melted due to one wire not being installed properly ). Was $300 to do that .they came back in an hour with the piece and changed it . Got a call 15-20 mins after they replaced it , Robert said the condenser or compressor was bad (can't remember which one) and unit need to be replaced .. Called me back in 15 mins with quote of 2100-300 for the work they already did so $1800 was tbe final cost .unit was installed the next day an hour earlier than expected , which was nice since it was 90 that day . Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was I would have liked a chance to choose the brand of unit I got, had a goodman which they said is excellent and got one that's different , They said it comparable and as long as it last for a while like tne lady one (9 years) I will be ok with it.. I will most definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone .. Wife and sister in law had to be home whole I was at work and they installed and they agreed that they were gentleman and very professional .. "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.

What happens during a roofing inspection?

Roof inspectors are trained to look for signs of a failing roofing system that could lead to damage — especially water and structural damage. Your home's roofing materials may look great from the ground, but it's difficult to see potential damage unless you take a closer look. A roof inspector can do just that.

During an inspection, the professional will typically look for issues that may have occurred during installation and manufacturing. They’ll also keep an eye out for damage caused by normal wear and tear, as well as extreme weather events. They might also access your attic to see if there are signs of a leak in your roof.

Here’s a short list of common things a contractor will look out for during a roof inspection: 

  • Damage caused by hail, wind, snow and rain
  • Missing, broken, buckling, curling or cracked shingles 
  • Roof decay, rot, moss, mildew and mold
  • Rust around the flashing
  • Damaged chimneys and vents
  • Holes, gaps and punctures that could cause a roof leak
  • Water stains and ventilation issues

Hiring a roofing inspector prevents you from having to do the dangerous work of climbing onto your roof. Plus, inspectors know how to assess potential damage and determine the best way to repair your roof and prevent the need for more expensive repairs in the future.

When should I get my roof inspected?

Experts typically recommend that you have your roof professionally inspected at least once a year. But you also may want a licensed professional to inspect your roof during these circumstances: 

  • You're buying or selling a home
  • You're filing an insurance claim
  • Before or after a contractor does major work on your roof

Search the Thumbtack site for experienced roof inspectors near you. You can contact them directly to set up a time to conduct the inspection, and learn more about their pricing structure and services.
