Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

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.

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 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. 

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.

Working with Singleton Enterprise was a pleasure. Jim was punctual, professional, and provided nice quality work. He was able to build the roofing system over our deck, as well as install a gorgeous metal roof on the entire house. He provided quotes that allowed us to choose how the roof could be done and the pricing allowed us to install a metal roof. Another nice aspect of selecting Singleton Enterprise was the ability to have the company complete the majority of the project, but allow me to complete the underside of the newly added roof over the deck. This gave me the opportunity to complete a little of the project on my own and in a way that I want the underside to be done. We are very pleased with the entire job and glad that we chose Singleton Enterprise to complete the work.

I traveled to Greensboro from Fayetteville to have this roof repair done on a specific day. Sergio called me and was prompt on arriving at the address and after checking the roof, left to get the materials he needed, returned promptly and completed the job. While I called Antonio Remodeling/Renovations for a specific area of repair, Sergio checked the entire roof for me and completed all the areas that needed attention in a couple of hours in one afternoon.

Eduardo came to my house to estimate the job and thoroughly explained every detail of the composition of my roof and the work involved to replace it. On the scheduled day, he and his crew showed up early and after two days, finished the job to each detail. The roof looks great and I am very pleased.

I needed a relatively low-cost roof repair that two other roofers rejected (they offered full replacement only). Singleton inspected and repaired the same day I called them, then emailed a bill to me. The total cost was a small fraction of a full roof replacement. The whole experience was simple, easy, and fast. Highly recommended.

If you have any roofing needs whatsoever you have to go with Singleton, if there were 10 stars that's what they would get. Excellent customer service, talked to them yesterday, job is complete by lunch today. That type customer service doesn't exist anymore, but Singleton provided just that. Please don't make a mistake and use any other company for your roofing needs.

They came the next day and were able to determine it was not my roof that was the issue. It was a problem with a duct in the ceiling. They were able to repair it the same day. I will be hiring them for future jobs.

This is a verifiable review. J&M just finished my roof to include adding a bathroom vent and gutters. They did a fantastic job and I know it was done with quality because I was up on my roof with them throughout the day so I saw firsthand what they were doing. But the most amazing thing about Eduardo was that we scheduled the new roof the same weekend that Hurricane Florence hit North Carolina. He called to reschedule the job until after the storm passed and I did not expect to see him till then. However, on the day before the storm hit Greensboro two gentleman showed up to install the new gutters and said that Eduardo wanted to make sure the gutters were in place to help capture the deluge of rain that was coming. I was extremely impressed that he thinks this way about his customers. And after the 6.99 inches of rain came I was extremely grateful (WFMY reported 6.99). I I did my research when looking for a roofer to include references from friends and neighbors but found that J & M had a 5-star rating and zero complaints on the BBB gave me enough confidence to give them a call. Of the five roofers I contacted Eduardo was only 1 of 2 roofers that wanted me to be present when he did his inspection / estimate. Afterward he sat down with me and presented his credentials and samples of the products he uses to include why he uses them. I already knew that CertainTeed and GAF where the two industry standards and so I felt even more confident about Eduardo because he knew his products very well. Now here is the twist in my story. Along with my standard roof I also had a flat roof over my sunroom. The quotes for flat roof replacement was a shock (I am not familiar with flat roof work) and the other roofer gave me the option to not do it to save money however Eduardo highly suggested that I replace it at the same time since the age of the roof was the same and there was some peeling at the seams. At first it was easier to go with the cheaper option but after I thought about it I felt more comfortable with his recommendation and do not regret taking it at all. Midday when they began to tear up the old rubber on the flat roof and I was shocked to see that most of the under layers were totally rotted and crumbled in my hands. Literally the wood became a sponge! I cringe at what the future would hold if I decided not to replace the flat roof. I could not be more happier with the work his men did and the trust and respect I have in Eduardo going forward.

after getting many quotes we choose JM Construction to replace the roof on our home and our building. We cannot express the quality of the work and the timely manor in which it was completed. They went above and beyond the scope of work, paid very close attention to details and documented the entire event with photos. The entire work area was cleaned up and we are extremely pleased with the service provided. If your in the market for a new roof we highly recommend JM Construction. Bob and Sandra Miller

We are very pleased with EcoShield Roofing Solutions! Joe came out and did a very thorough inspection, Shera was very pleasant and scheduled our repairs, and Michael and Jesus did a fabulous job on our roof and siding! They gave us updates throughout the repairs, asked our preferences, and were very friendly and efficient. (They even offered to help our elderly neighbor move something heavy in her yard.) We will certainly hire them again and highly recommend their services. Thank you!

We hired EcoShield to replace our roof, repair siding and gutters. The whole process from sales to finish the work was done professionally. We are very happy with their work and appreciate their prompt responses. Evan and Wil were both courteous and professional. Evan was very helpful and friendly. He even came to meet with our insurance adjuster to help with the claim process. They provide a 12-year workmanship warranty on the roof, which is something to keep in mind when comparing with other companies. We highly recommend their services.
