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 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 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

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.

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.  

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.

Jim was extremely helpful in evaluating my roof. We ended up only doing small repairs as he recommended the roof not be replaced. His recommendation was honest and a much appreciated cost savings. I would highly recommend him and he will be my first call for future roofing needs.

Jim came out and diagnosed my leaky roof the next day. He showed me video of the leak and went above and beyond to tidy up the roof while he was up there. Most importantly as the flood of 2017 continues, my home is dry now. In a world filled with shady contractors Jim was great to work with. Can't recommend highly enough. Will use again in the future when the need arises.

Value - They beat the next lowest bid by a thousand dollars. Speed - Had my entire roof replaced before lunch. Care - They took care not to damage Ivy I desired to keep and newly planted trees next to home. Clean up - If it were not for noticing how nice the new roof looked, you would never have known they were there. I am very happy with this company and the way I was treated.

Ristow Builds is an excellent company. They did a great job on my new roof. They started at 6:30 a.m and worked until 7:00 p.m. The yard and driveway was left completely clean of all debris from the two sets of shingles that had to be torn off. They even cleared out a hive of bees and killed the queen bee that was underground. My new roof looks wonderful. I highly recommend this company.

I can't say enough good things about Life Time Roofing. Dustin came by to give me a quote/recommendation and noticed I had hail damage. He was professional, easy to talk to and honest about all my options. He recommended I get in touch with my insurance company to discuss my coverage. Life Time Roofing helped me through the whole process and kept everything moving along. Delisa was extremely easy to work with for payment info/options. Overall I couldn't be happier with getting in touch with the company, they were truly a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended on all fronts! I will be using them for all future roofing needs.

I couldn’t be happier with this company and their team. The roof was installed in April 2020. They were responsive, provided an accurate quote, kept me updated, coordinated well with another group doing brick work, cleaned up afterwards, etc. The roof started leaking on Jan 1 2021. They responded quickly, found the reason for the leak (a stray bullet from NYE happened to puncture a hole in the TPO) and patched it. They’re definitely on my “recommend without reservation” list.

Alex is just awesome, he made sure every little problem was mentioned and documented to me with photos, he went over everything with me while we were on my roof. He pointed out the problems and made sure he fixed them correctly not only for his liability purpose but for his customers peace of mind. I’m telling you, you will not regret anything, him and his team did an astounding job on my roof, everything is laying flat and looking beautiful especially with the architectural shingles! It was well worth every penny spent, he educated me on the roofing materials and made sure I understood why he added certain things. I am very please and happy with everything. Thank you Alex, references will be sent to family and friends!

We are happy with the roof work, the guys did a neat job and cleaned after themselves perfectly. The only thing - they hired a subcontractor for siding, these guys also did a good job, but were not very thoughtful during the process :-) But that's not the roofer's fault. We also got the gutters done. The Roof doc's guys Mark and Scott saved us time and money tremendously by dealing with the insurance issues. Overall a great experience and a good value and good work. We recommend them highly.

Out of seven companies contacted, Alex was the first to arrive and submit a competitive estimate. Only one other company came out the same day. The others were trying to schedule a visit long after we signed the contract. The day that work began was a frenzy of activity, everyone arrived at 6:00 a.m. No fewer than eleven skilled workers completed not only a complete tear-off but also rebuilt two sections of our rotted roof in back from the framing up. The crew also replaced multiple sheets of 3/4 inch sheathing. Perhaps the biggest surprise was the roof over our back porch. We didn't factor in that roof but Alex did and his crew corrected a persistent leak without additional cost, even though it was far worse than the main house. I am truly grateful for all the extra work that the crew put in to make my childhood home both safe and sound for my mom. The yard and sidewalks were so clean I couldn't even tell a new roof was installed. They even picked up debris outside of our property line and used brooms and rakes to make everything tidy. I am overjoyed when I look up at our quality roof with drip edge, 6 nails per shingle and architectural shingles for roughly 40% less than the next lowest bid. Alex even followed up once the job was done to make sure we are happy with every aspect of their work. You needn't go elsewhere. They exceeded our expectations many times over. Call and set up your appointment today. Alex will show you your roof condition with his drone and explain options with you.

The crew was responsive to a request for an estimate for a repair of a 2nd floor dormer on my newly purchased house. Previous owners installed shingle where rolled roofing should have been used due to low pitch and as an effect there was some leaking into the house. The team made quick work of a repair that was more complicated than they had planned for. Sent pictures of each phase of the roof repair to document work done. They additionally made some repairs to gutters as I had requested. Would recommend! Great value!

Bob Ristow is a professional. He answered all of my questions prior to the installation, even before we agreed to hire him. Our roof looks really nice and they left the site clean. More importantly he offered a great price compared to other contractors.
