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.

We recently purchased our first home and quickly found out our roof had multiple leaks that were not identified during the home inspection. We called Reyes Roofing and Danny came out the same day and repaired the leaks in a few hours. Danny was very professional and transparent throughout the process. I will be referring Reyes Roofing to family and friends and using for any future roof repairs.

Five Star Roofing & Exteriors were willing to come out and help us with a small section of our roof, while others turned us away. They were timely, efficient and helpful with finding solutions.

What started out as a single small roof turned out to be a complete replacement due to bad material of the original roof. I chose ABJ for the following reasons 1,) being BBB A+ accredited, 2.) payment due at job closure and 3.) working with me to file a warranty claim with original roofing material supplier to receive credit and compensation. If it wasn’t for ABJ guiding me through the warranty process, I would have never known about the ability to file a claim. Regarding the job itself they completed the job in two days, were courteous, and resolved un-seen issues with the original roof. They demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and competence. When they left they cleaned up and you couldn’t even tell that a new roof was just installed. I highly recommend ABJ Roofing and have already told my neighbors about my experience with ABJ.

One of the best presentations and explained all steps. Actually got up the roof and wrote the quote right there! Was able to upgrade shingles and still 1/2 of what I had budgeted. Did the roof in one day. Looks great!

I had to get my roof replaced after Hurricane Matthew. ABJ gave me a fair price even though they were very backed up (as most roofers were) after Hurricane Matthew. They also helped me identify a discrepancy with my insurance company's original estimate for the job. They had a large enough crew to get the job done in one day even though there were extensive problems with my sub-roofing that had to be corrected. Everything happened on schedule. They left the job site clean and the roof looks great. I could not be happier with this roof.

We had a low slope roof on our backyard garage but the original owners had used regular shingles. There was a lot of water damage under the shingles because of this but Mauricio and team fixed everything. The new roof looks great and no more leaks!

Great experience and value. ABJ had a competitive price compared to other bids and came out to look at the job before quoting a price. They delivered the material on a Wednesday, and finished installation of the roof by Thursday afternoon. I've already recommended them to other friends looking at roof work.

While there is nothing intrinsically exciting about needing a roof replacement, I could not be more pleased the whole experience. The price was very competitive, the communication was direct and professional, I received a quality product, and the cleanup afterwards was meticulous. I highly recommend this company if you need a new roof.

Excellent! They did a really wonderful job and we are so happy with our new roof. The one thing that made us decide to hire them was, of the 3 contractors we asked for a quote, they were the only one to go up on the roof to actually look at the condition of the roof when they made the estimate. The crew were so professional, cleaned up, put everything back when the job was done. We would give them 10 stars if we could. Needless to say we are one of their happy customers!!!

Responded within minutes to my inquiry and came out same day to give an estimate. They were able to fix our leaking roof the next day. We had spoken to other companies who had given estimates but did not sound very knowledgeable about the issues. David has extensive experience and knows roofs! These are hardworking, honest guys who will get the job done quickly. They did a great job for a great price

It’s been pouring for months, and we have had no further issues with leaks or paint bubbles since the repair. Also, they serviced a metal roof, which many roofers will not deal with.

Weather was definitely an issue around replacing our fairly complicated roof (including two flat sections) but Justin worked hard to meet the window provided by a 2-day break in the rain. Everything was well-protected while we all waited for a rain-free day to wrap up the job the following week. I would definitely hire Moose Construction again for roofing and other work I may need. Top notch professional.
