Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it better to repair or replace a roof?

It depends on the severity of the damage. If a falling branch or a windstorm damages an isolated patch of shingles, you could probably repair it. However, if the underlayment is damaged or if the whole roof is showing signs of wear, you might need to replace it. 

Always have a professional roofer near you assess the roof before making a decision.

Can a handyman repair a roof?

A handyman may be able to repair simpler problems on a roof, such as damaged shingles or gutters. However, it’s important that you hire a pro who’s properly trained and skilled to handle your roof repairs. When in doubt, research the licensing requirements in your state, and review several handymen and roofers before making a decision. 

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 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.

Do roofers offer remote or virtual services?

To find out the degree to which a roofing service can operate remotely, it’s best to contact local roofers and roofing repair specialists near you.

See if they will schedule a video call so that you can show them the project and get an idea of the cost. This will also allow them to give you recommendations on the type of roofing material, and the best time of year to do the project. You might also be able to book a roof installation or repair service far out in advance.

Gerardo replied back to my message promptly and was out the very next day to look at the roof. He was able to repair the roof the following week, and that wait was only due to the weather. If it had not been for the rain he would have repaired the roof sooner. I would recommend him to anyone needing a roof repair or re-roofing. I am keeping his card on file for all future roofing needs. In addition the the repair, he fixed other issues for us at no extra charge. He really went above and beyond for us.

Eduardo is responsive, responsible, and professional. We had him replace an entire roof and then do a roof repair on another property. We highly recommend him and in fact have referred him already to our closest friends!

I had a minor leak coming from my roof and a few other issues that I needed fixed. The Roofing Group responded to me within minutes, were here before the rain started and fixed the issue at a really reasonable price. I took business cards for family and friends and would recommend them to anyone who needs their roof repaired or redone.

Jim came exactly when he said he would, he and his crew were very polite and professional, and my roof was repaired quickly. I will most definitely use them again.

Jim came out as soon as he could to evaluate the job. Provided a clear estimate for free, we decided to hire him, and a few days later they were up on the roof and found the leak, and repaired it. We paid a bit extra for a complete roof assessment and his crew found a few small issues they fixed. Honest work for reasonable rates!

I cannot express enough gratitude for the exceptional service EcoShield provided. Wil was quick to respond to my request (within hours) and patient enough to talk me through their business process, so we could make a well informed decision. I appreciate the honesty, courtesy, and respect he displayed. He and his team accessed and repaired the roof and also cleaned the gutters of my rental property. I also appreciated that he took the time to take before and after photos of the repair areas and followed up a couple days after to ensure there were no additional issues after the repair. We are now considering a full roof replacement in the Spring and will definitely call on EcoShield. Thank you Wil and EcoShield for the exceptional service!

I posted the need for a roof plumbing boot repair at 1:00pm, by 1:02 Sean Maher contacted me with a general estimate. I have never seen such speed. The rain was coming and by 5:00pm it had been fixed! I was very happy. He understood my urgency. BIG thanks.

If job was done as described I feel sure it is a good job. I have no way of getting on the roof to see. Sean said he would check it out & make pictures for me, he has not. I have not seen or heard from him since job was finished and I paid him Also, there was fine print explaining what seemed a small charge for repairs to damaged wood. Once again, I have no way of knowing, but the charge of $450 is a large amount for a few pieces of wood that I happened to see in my yard.
