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 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 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 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.

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.

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.

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!

Had a leaking issue. Another estimate from another company said it couldn’t be fixed and wanted to replace the entire roof. Wil and Randy have an honest opinion of the roof and made the necessary repairs. I recommend this company if you, like me, prefer to work with a local company.

Sean went over and above making sure he provided the best service and best roof on out home. He even helped us with our insurance company to get fair pay to have the work done so we didn’t have to come out of our pocket to get the roof we want to replace our old damaged roof. We would refer Major League Construction to anyone who want quick, honest and quality work done right!

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!

Work went as planned and on schedule. The roof looks 100% better and the crew cleaned up after themselves extremely well, I was pleased. The only minor issue was resolved without any disagreement and resolved immediately again a sign of professionalism not always seen in contractors. I am totally satisfied with the job and would recommend Singleton for any roofing needs anyone requires.

Roof looks great. Have a shallowly sloped carport which was covered in metal vs. shingles, so it doesn't leak, and it paired well w/the shingles I selected.

J & M Construction did an excellent job removing the old shingles from our roof and replacing them with a high quality and long-lasting shingle. When asked to come by to see the job and provide us with a written quote, Eduardo was professional, knowledgeable and very helpful. He answered all of our questions, provided sample brochures and examples of the types of materials he uses for roofing projects. His quote was very reasonable and compared to the other quotes we received, his price was by far the best and much more budget friendly. We set up a day for his crew to come out and complete the job and the roof looks absolutely beautiful! His crew showed up on time, worked well together and quickly finished a quality job. They also removed all debris from the old shingles they removed and removed all of the scraps from the new shingles that had to be trimmed to snuggly fit the contours of our home. Our roof looks so amazing and we would highly recommend hiring J & M Construction and his crew to work for our friends and neighbors.

Singleton Enterprise did an amazing job on my roof! They put up architectural shingles just in time for a snowstorm and it looks great. The owner is extremely polite and professional and all of his staff members are experts in their field. Their pricing is also very competitive. I’m very glad I chose Singleton Enterprises.

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.

Singleton Enterprises fixed a seam in my roof and a few rotting clapboards near that seam. The job included replacing a section of gutter and painting the new clapboards. Jim Singleton and his worker did a very good job in terms of quality of work and responsiveness. I would not hesitate to use the services of Singleton Enterprises again.

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 am very please with the work of JM Construction. Prior to the job, Eduardo,explained the entire process to my wife and myself. We were showed examples of the products that would be used and any questions we had were answered during this process. The workmen were very professional and efficient in doing the work. Photos were taken of the work as it proceeded and given to us and we were asked if we had any questions during the roofing job. The workmen did an excellent job and completely removed any debit after the job was completed. Eduardo was very courtesy before, during, and after the job. Prior to leaving he gave us his warranty and told us to contact him if we had any problems in the future. I would highly recommend JM Construction (Eduardo Correa) for any roofing job.

TRUST roofing co. Kelly and Ricardo are hands down THE very best. They were never pushy or tried to pressure us into anything. I had some storm damage to my roof so I called a few contractors. TRUST stood out Imimmediately as a top-notch company. Ricardo came by and on time for our initial meeting and estimate. Ricardo then came back and met with the insurance adjuster which really gave me peace of mind Once we were approved we started to talk to Kelly. This lady knows her stuff. She came by with a book of samples. Once we kinda narrowed it down Kelly told us where we could see the shingles on a roof. Then we picked our shingle and ask her if she could bring a bigger sample by and right on time she came by with the exact shingle we were looking for. Kelly filed all the paperwork with insurance co. The process was so easy The crew showed up early and were finished by the end of the day. the crew was nice and polite. I seen them walk around my house 4 or 5 times looking for FOD. This was all so easy all we had to do was sit back and let them do what they do best. This was hands-down the best experience with a contractor I’ve ever had

Long delays with responding. Unable to provide estimates unless you are at the property. Since I’m an investor I’m not in the same city/state as the property so I’m unable to be on site. I provide a lockbox for house entry. Not understanding how a roof which is available outside can’t be viewed without being present. No follow up on dates once I made plans to drive out to the property.

I give Chris 5 stars!!! Great work and customer service! I am so thankful for Chris coming out right away to see about the leaking problem at my parents house. He immediately identified the issue and was able to fix it right away. I will definitely reach out to Chris whenever I have any other roofing issues. I highly recommend his service.

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.
