Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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’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.

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.

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

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.

I posted on thumbtack for a roof replacement. Earl with Total Roofing Solutions (TRS) reached out to me right away to set up a call to speak. Prior to deciding to go with TRS, I shopped around for different quotes, but nothing compared in quality and/or price. Earl was very professional right from the beginning. His team arrived to the house early in the morning and finished the roof in the same day. I would highly recommend using TRS for any roofing needs.

I made a request of roof replacement. Scott promptly responded back. His quote was competitive as the other quote. However, his people were available sooner than the other. So, I accepted his proposal. They replaced the roof and cleaned up. The new roof looks good. Just wait for the big rain for the test.

stiles roofing is a great company to work with. They are responsive, honest and professional. David was honest about the issue and provided pictures to support his conclusion and correction of the problem. He did not try to sell us on work that was unnecessary to charge us more. We will definitely use Stiles Roofing for all of our roofing needs. We highly recommend them.

This is a first class operation. Appointments were always on time. Communication before, during and after completion of the job was excellent. Care was taken to protect plantings around the house during removal of old roof. Cleanup following the job was exceptional. Northline pays attention to all of the details involved in having a roof replaced. At no charge wood replacement in gazebo and shed roof were painted to match existing paint. Lawn service prior to installation and pressure washing of exterior following installation are part of this attention to detail. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking to repair or replace a roof.

Excellent service beginning to end. Earl arrived on time, educated me on solutions and options and has an excellent crew. I was provided with photos and updates throughout job and upon completion you wouldn't have even known they were there besides the sight of the great looking new roof. Earl knows what he's doing would recommend him to anyone. (Roof Replacement of Corrugated Sheet Metal Roof)

We appreciated Travis roofing expertise in rubber roofing and conscientious repairs with attention to detail... honest, hardworking and went above and beyond with lots of extras, trimmed back overgrown branches, found several leaks missed by another roofer estimate, left work area and yard in better condition than they found it... another roofer gave an estimate that was the exact same price but missed many areas, didn’t cover secondary roof, no warranty, and did not include lap seaming the existing roofing for added protection to ensure we had no more leaks or problems for years to come! Highly recommend..

Multiple issues. First off, wouldn't give me a window of time to come look at my roof. After asking multiple times, he just said "in the morning". He charged me $650 to clean out my gutters and switch rubber seals on the ventilation pipes ($6-7 each part). I believe he took advantage of me telling him that I was in a hurry to get my roof repaired because per my homeowner's insurance. I was told I had tiles that were curling up the roof. He said my roof was "fine". He also gave me an estimate for a new roof (of course). He would not take cards at all, only cash or a personal check made out to his personal name (not the company) - very shady if you ask me, people do this try to dodge paying taxes. Very hypocritical if that's the case, because he was complaining to me about how little money emergency services folks make. Two weeks later my HO insurance company said my roof was still not repaired. So I had a proper roof company come out 2 weeks later and they showed me multiple tiles are literally unsealed and you can easily pull them up and look underneath (they showed me pictures and it was all over the roof). This guy is not a professional and does not know roofs, on top of overcharging and questionable practices.

Earl was the first to respond to my issue post-storm. He provided a tarp on our roof same-day and stayed in touch with me throughout the process. His team completed the full roofing job in one quick day and it looks perfect.
