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 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 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 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.

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.

I needed a roof repair on shingles that were shifted. He explained why the previous roofing had caused the shifting. He resolved the issue without having to reproof my house. Roof was about 6 years ago. He did a great job.

In the process of selling our house, Joe initially gave us a very competitive price for a new roof. When the buyer decided they'd rather repair the roof for now, Joe was willing to come out to spot check our roof and re-caulk our vents. Finding a roofing company to do such a "small" job is not easy, and Joe did it quickly and thoroughly. He was very responsive throughout the process. We will be coming back to Joe and That One Construction Company for all our future roofing needs!

I had a new roof put on. Nick contacted me promptly and made an appt. to come out and look at the roof. He got on the roof and checked it out, then provided a quote while he was on site and he left single samples. I made the decision to proceed - selected which shingle I wanted, texted Nick on a Thursday and the roof was completed the following Monday. All in one day, the roof looks great. I am completely impressed, Nick exceeded my expectations. Great job, very professional and I would highly recommend!!!

Jason is a kind person and works hard - hence the second star. But we've had trouble with our roof leaking since the start. I paid for a new roof for peace of mind and I don't have it. Not sure what to do next.

The owner Jason was excellent. The firm is small enough to give personal attention to all clients. His work crew works so hard and so fast. Right after the roof was installed we had a real strong wind storm that blew some of the newly installed shingles off the ridge vent. He personally came down and fixed it as well as did a complete final inspection. For a home owner that doesn't want big but personal attention from someone who knows roofs and roofing, this is the guy.

I will recommend Nick and his crew to everyone looking to have a new roof. Nick was available to me with every question along the way, responded immediately. The crew was careful not to damage the surroundings of my over 2000 plants that a I have been growing for 24 years. Great job, not one complaint! My new roof is beautiful!

We needed a minor repair of our garage roof. Jake came out and fixed it at no charge, and the repair was done professionally. We were pleasantly surprised by his kind and giving nature and attention to quality and detail. We plan to hire Jake for roof replacement and a few other projects, if he is willing. This guy is fantastic and highly recommended!
