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 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

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.

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.

Josh was great. Job was not that involved but it was not for a 70 year old to climb & work on a roof.

Travis was quick to respond, and was at our house within probably 2 hours. He was very knowledgable and helped me understand a lot about our roof. All repairs were made during his visit and we are very pleased. This is a home we are moving into so we had no history on the roof or the gutters other than our home inspection report. We will definitely use Travis Roofing and Guttering again.

Mario was professional right from the beginning. He responded in a timely manner and scheduled an appointment. He showed up on time. I explained my situation with my roof and he took a look and gave me pictures and told me what he needed to do. He gave me an estimate with my roof pictures and had him proceed with the job. He also sent me pictures of what he and his worker has done. Since it rained today, no water came in where he made the repair. I don’t expect any issues with the rest of my roof but if I did, I know who to call. Thank you Roof Top Sentinels

I would highly recommend this company.

The owner of New Leak Roofing, Darryl showed up promptly and provided a free estimate. He offered a variety of solutions depending on what I wanted to spend, and custom crafted solution for my needs. Throughout, he explained every part of the problem and his proposals, and was knowledgeable, humble and professional.

Guys came by on time and did awesome work! They kept me up to date and could tell they were very professional and wanted to double check and ensure everything was handled to the highest standards! I hope we don't have any other roof issues - but if we do would definitely use them again.

I have no issues with the roofing work that was provided. The work was done promptly and everyone was knowledgeable - the work seems to be fine. The issue I do have is that we asked if a vent could be installed outside to replace one that was missing, and we were definitely willing to pay an additional fee to have it done since it was outside of their normal scope of work. We were expecting a nominal fee (maybe $50) and were blown away when we received an invoice for $225, especially since we paid $7 for the vent and the work spent less than 10 mins to install. I reached out to IX Roofing via thumbtack for an explanation of the charge and how the amount was calculated and received no response. I guess after getting $600 from us, he felt no response was warranted. I feel like we were taken advantage of with an exorbitant $225 additional charge and WILL NOT and DO NOT recommend this company.
