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.

I hired Mario from Decarney Roofing to fix my parents roof. The front of the house has a mysterious bump that got bigger and bigger over the years. The bump finally got big enough to catch the insurance underwriter's eye so we had to get it fixed. Mario was fast in responding to our request and even showed up same day to look at the damage in person. Initial fix was to rip up the old shingle and plywood and put new ones on. However, on the day of the job, it was discovered that this a far bigger job than anticipated. The overhang of the roof was not supported causing the front of the roof to sag. Mario's team did a great job in rebuilding the structure and cleaned up well.

The Storm over the weekend blew away part of my roof, this was an horrific emergency which needed to be fixed right away, I make some calls around, and also applied on Thumbtack, got multiple responds, but Raul Castro was the one that could do it the soonest. He came the next day as he promised, was on time, assess the damage, went and got the replacement shingles, went up there and got my damaged roof repaired, leaving it looking as if there was never a damage. Wow! It was a pleasure to have him work on my roof, and I'll recommend him to anyone wanting roofing job done. His professionalism and his superb knowledge of the profession comes through as you interact with him. Very grateful to have this problem taken care of without breaking my bank!!

Eric was extremely knowledgeable about my minor roofing issues. His estimate of amount of work needed was accurate and his price was very reasonable for my small project. He came on time both to review my project and to do the job. Eric worked diligently and nonstop on the project until it was done. He cleaned up all of debris afterwards and hulled it away. I really appreciate his expertise, workmanship, and professionalism. He’s a great roofer. I will definitely hire him again if I have another roofing job. Thanks Eric, my flashing looks great.

If you are sick of people not getting back to you Lydon Exteriors is the team for you. Top notch work, they get back to you ASAP, and they show up exactly when they say they will. They replaced our ancient (largely rotten) roof in less than 12 hours. 10/10 would hire again!

Eric fixed a leak in our rubber roofing that nobody else could repair. Came out on site, identified the issue within 5 minutes of being there, gave me a very fair quote and had the problem solved days later. We are high and dry since the repair. Would definitely use again!

Patrick was great to work with. He repaired a leak on our roof and some siding on our house (which was a last minute add). He was an excellent communicator, showed up on time, and completed work quickly. Everything looks great and I’m relieved to have things fixed. Truly appreciate his work and would highly recommend!

Luis and his team were amazing!! I originally hired him for a rubber roof job. I ended up keeping him on to replace a ceiling in one of the bedrooms, replace the old siding and gutters on the outside as well as building a new deck. Luis and his team were always very professional and punctual. Definitely will hire again for the next project.
