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 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. 

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

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.

Had a old roof with a lot of leaks, came out within 2 weeks and replaced it. Guys tore off, reduced and replaced my roof very quickly and happy with the end results. Will use again if we need a new roof in the future.

New roof needed. Received proposals from other prominent roofing contractors in Grand Rapids. Selected Conrad for their straight forwardness; no add-ons, no gimmicks and competitive pricing. They also competitively quoted some additional vinyl siding work. In the end they were communicative, sincere and quickly handled an issue after the roof was completed. I highly recommend.

Great Lakes Building Concepts was amazing. When I need more roof work done, they will be the first I call! I procrastinated on getting my roof down because I never seemed have the time, but I contacted Great Lakes and the next day they came by for a quote. They quoted me such a reasonable price and were so professional, I hired them on the spot and was able to get my roof fixed the same day. So quick and painless and my roof looks great.

We had our roof replaced. After the team went home the first day and discovered it was suppose to rain that night, they called and asked to come back to tarp the roof even though they wouldn't be able to there until 11:30pm. This was greatly appreciated.

After my roof was damaged from harsh winds. These guys were quick to respond using the thumbtack app. They came to check the issue and gave an honest estimate. After we agreed on an appropriate time they went straight to work and got the roof better than it was before the damage.

I would like to share how happy we are with Conrad Consulting & Remodeling LLC for our recent roof replacement. Chris was very prompt and attentive from my initial contact until the end of the job. I was out of town, but he visited the house to provide an initial estimate. Chris accommodated my travel schedule to meet me at the house, show me samples, and listen to my needs. We discussed the state of the roof with its three layers of shingles, sagging boards, and my concerns over improper ventilation and ice dams. Chris proposed a very cost-competitive solution to repair and replace the roof, and improve the ventilation so that I can add attic insulation in the future. The crew that replaced the roof was one of the hardest working bunch of guys I’ve ever met. It was a blazing hot day and they worked from dawn to dusk tear off 3 layers of shingles, and put the new roof on. The crew was extremely polite, courteous, and friendly. They took the time to explain to me what they were doing, and kept me informed throughout the job. Once the roof was complete my whole yard was thoroughly cleaned up, and the dumpster was removed promptly the next day. There were no surprise costs or hidden charges. What was agreed to up front was what I paid. The house looks fantastic. I have already had two neighbors stop by to compliment the appearance of the house, and to ask for CCR’s contact information. I hope to see CCR in my neighborhood again soon, and will definitely use them for future projects around the house.

Had a leak in our ceiling related to ice buildup on our roof. They came out and provide an estimate. We went with it and they came out the next day, did the job, did it professionally, and there were no surprises in the final bill. From my perspective Chris (the owner) seems like a square shooter and their works is good.
