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. 

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

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.

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.

Do roofers offer remote or virtual services?

To find out the degree to which a roofing service can operate remotely, it’s best to contact local roofers and roofing repair specialists near you.

See if they will schedule a video call so that you can show them the project and get an idea of the cost. This will also allow them to give you recommendations on the type of roofing material, and the best time of year to do the project. You might also be able to book a roof installation or repair service far out in advance.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a roofer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a roofer, choose virtual platforms like video chats instead of face-to-face consultations. When the roofer is working on your roof, avoid any physical contact, sanitize all involved spaces and surfaces, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

I hired Bond Roofing to replace a roof on a house I was selling. Their patience and flexibility, plus the Thumbtack guarantee and reviews, made it a clear decision. The work was completed as promised, the house sold, and I know the buyers are pleased with the project.

Kerry met with our insurance adjuster one week, and we were getting the roof installed about 10 days later. The crew did a great job removing and replacing the shingles...kept debris all picked up as well. We have a simple roof, so only took one day for it to be done.

We are in the midst of putting solar panels on our roof. As a result of a structural engineering analysis, it was determined that our 22 year old roof needed to be replaced prior to the solar panel installation. I looked at a few contractors and ultimately settled on Builder Direct. Here are some of the reasons why. Challenge of the project - We have a 120 year old home with a pretty steep roof. I had the roof replaced in 1997, so I knew it could be replaced, but I actually had one roofer tell me his team would not do it. Alan and his team took a look, and while they agreed it was a steep roof (and the roofers had to get creative with getting materials up on the roof), he assured me the project was doable. And that this aspect in itself would not affect the price of the project. He was correct! We had a slight adjustment for materials, which could happen any where, but that was it. Professionalism - Our roof was replaced while my wife and I were out of town on vacation. We returned home and the project was finished and the roof looked great. But there was a bit of a snafu. My HVAC contractor informed that the line set running from the ground unit to the roof (we have a three story house with zoned heating and cooling) had been punctured in several places, probably as a result of the roof replacement, which explained why the 3rd floor was not cooling properly. I reached out to Alan to discuss and we agreed to have one of his HVAC associates review the damage first hand just to ensure the estimate for repair was within a reasonable range. It was determined that this was the case. As such, Alan agreed to knock off this amount from the final invoice for the project, so I could pay my HVAC contractor directly for the repair work. Alan handled this very professionally and was very apologetic as to the damage itself. These things happen, but the way he dealt with it made all the difference in the world! All in all, I think Alan and his team did an extraordinary job on the project. I would use them again in as heartbeat, no questions asked!

Fast, and for a great value. The flat and shingle roof look great! I even paid Bond roofing to instal new gutters. Job well done! They removed all the debris and the job was completed in one day. Not one leak. Lonnie Bonds bid came in under budget so i was able to get a full gutter install. Great job!

We are new investors and Rob was very quick to reapond and gave us a free evaluation. We were under the impression we needed a new roof. After his inspection, he noted just some minor repairs were needed and he provided a 2 year leak proof guarantee for a very reasonable price. The other quotes I received provided the cost for a new roof and did not let me know I didn't really need a new roof. I feel Rob is very honest and I woukd highly recommend him!

TCM, and Rob Desselle, did an amazing job on our roof. His bid was the lowest, but he also bid to the needs of our project. He gave excellent feedback as to what we needed done, and he didn't try to talk us out of our shingle choice, unlike others who bid. He also started and finished our roof a day earlier than expected. Highly recommended.

I had an insurance claim for a one layer tear-off and shingle replacement. Top Peaks walked me through every step of the way, answering any questions and keeping me informed of any developments. I am very happy with the work they did! From the crew, to the materials used, and the clean up afterwards… I would very much recommend Top Peaks Roofing and Construction! My roof looks great! I’m going to use them for other projects around the house as well!

Mark was nice and responded quickly. However, his crew was late for the consult and I took the day off for no reason which was frustrating. They were able to make the repair to my roof the next day which I was thankful for.
