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.  

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.

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.

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 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.

Reviews for Kernersville roofing professionals
Steve K.
Eduardo of J&M Construction showed his professionalism from the first time I met him. He thoroughly inspected my roof and showed me pictures he took. He than gave me an option to make repairs to it or to replace the entire roof. He explained how he would proceed with the repair or the replacement. I choose to replace the entire roof and Eduardo set up the date and time the job would begin. On the day chosen, the J&M crew showed up on time and set up for the job. They quickly stripped the roof and disposed of the old shingles immediately into their trash trailer. After the roof was stripped, they swept if off and began putting down the new liner and quickly began putting on the new shingles. Before long, the shingles were in place. FANTASTIC job. Eduardo and crew completed the job in one day with no signs of nails or trash. Even our neighbors gave J&M the thumbs up. I would highly recommend J&M Construction to anyone who needs a new roof. Thanks Eduardo for a job well done.

Mr Gerardo J. Plata did an excellent job repairing my roof. He responded immediately when I ask him to repair an area on my roof. He not only repaired the area, he also checked my entire roof and fixed everything that need to be repaired. I asked he to install new sensor lights on my garage and didn’t charge me extra. I greatly appreciate his services and I will definitely use him again. God Bless you!

It was such a pleasure doing business with Eduardo. He and his team were very professional and the quality of work was outstanding. We started with a metal roof project and Eduardo connected us with an exterior painter and also connected us with someone to rebuild our steps to our back deck. Our blue metal roof is the envy of the neighborhood. We are so pleased with the results and will definitely call on Eduardo for any of our future projects.

Came actually before their apt time and were prepared to find the problem and correct it. I think they went beyond the call of duty to make sure other areas on the roof which needed attention were addressed. I felt their price for what they did was a fair value. Sergio was very professional. He took pictures if the before and after places on the roof which he corrected. He said if we had any further problems to give them a call and would come out and fix the problem.

Salvador came right away to give us a quote on our roof repair. He came back to do the repair on the date arranged and completed the work the same day. He and his crew were polite and professional. Reasonable quote for the work and no surprises. We definitely recommend him.

Mr. Plata was quick to respond.to my request for an assessment and evaluation of my problem. His repairs were timely and representative of an attention to detail. His estimate and final cost was half that of a competitor’s minimal charge! I highly recommend Gerardo as your first call for roofing replacement or repairs!
