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.

High wind damaged a small part of my roofing system. I contacted this group and they responded fast and efficiently. I explained the problem and despite the fact that it was small work, Arber sent his team to fix the issue. They arrived on time, fixed the problem with great value. I recommend General masonry and roofing LLC and will definitely use their service for my future projects.

Vincent and his team did a great job on replacing 2 flat roofs for me. What i like was the details, we went on the roof together as he explained what work they were going to do in removing and replacing the roof. He also explained in detail the material, technique and process they would use. He always followed up to my emails, texts, and phone calls. He gave me a great price and outstanding AAA+ WORK & SERVICE! I had a couple other estimates but they did not take the time and service like Diamond Restoration and Roofing, this is what set them apart from the rest, actually listening and addressing all my questions and concerns. He also sent me pictures with updates or if things needed to be addressed he would let me know of other issues in need of repair. They went above and beyond and exceeding my expectations! Thank you Diamond Restoration!

The A-1 USA Construction re-roofed my garage; I had planned to demolish the structure but after the team’s inspection, detailed list of needed repairs, competitive estimate and assurance the garage could be rehabbed I approved the project plan. A-1 USA Construction surpassed all expectations by repairing the garage roof and meticulously cleaning their work area. I will certain use their services again and definitely refer family and friends.

I called to have Anderson Roofing come out after the huge Hurricane and they were super fast and looked at addressed a small concern for me right away. They also gave me an estimate for a full new roof which I may need soon. They were on time when then said to the exact minute and very friendly. Seems to be a great company. Look forward to doing further business with them again.

I highly recommend Teamwork. They did a great job on our roof. I reached out to them and they were ready and on the job the next day. The prices are very reasonable and Teamwork is not in the business of taking advantage of their clients with being overly priced quotes. Thank you Wilson!

Jesse's staff is professional and hardworking as well as very neat workers. The ripped and installed an entire roof and installed a liner in the chimney. They draped the outside of the house so that the debris from the job did not ruin the deck or the yard. They were somewhat prompt in arriving to start work and did their best to complete this large job as soon as they could get it done.
