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.

Mike works on your home, as if it were his own. During ABQ's Monsoon season, I sent a request for help with my leaking roof via Thumbtack at 9:30pm. Mike responded within 5 minutes. He was out the next day to fix the leak in my roof. He took iPad pictures to show my roof damage. I was so impressed with Mike, not only did I hire him to complete my roof repairs, I hired him for a major remodel on my home. I highly recommend Mike, owner of MSC Construction Services, LLC.

They did an outstanding job on our roof. Cannot believe they completed in one day with minor work into another. John was our main contact and was very professional and fair. He was a pleasure to work with and I felt I could trust him 100 percent. I hope I don't have to replace my roof for many years to come but if I do, I know who to call.. Thank you Goodrich roofing.

Had to have gravel and tar removed from my flat roof in order for them to apply a TPO roof. Experience was as seemless as possible. On time everyday to start work and project stayed on exact timeline that was discussed and agreed with. Crew was very helpful when questions arised and they left the exterior of my house the same way as it was when I left. I would highly recommend John Whitney if you want your roof done right!!! He worked with my schedule and addressed any concerns I had; very professional and was honest with every question I had. Felt that he was genuinely concerned with getting my roof fixed with no suprise cost at the end of the day..

After the serious storms and rain of last month it was clear that our roof wasn't doing its job to keep the rain out. I wasn' looking forward to the whole process but Goodrich made it a breeze, they're fast, friendly, shingled our roof in one day. It looks great and I'm very happy.

Dwayne is absolutely awesome! He knows how to get the job done, and his prices are fair and upfront. Right on time, Dwayne showed up on a Sunday as discussed to give me an estimate on the repair of my roof mounted evaporative cooler. I asked him if he could do it today, and he started work on the spot! He repaired the cooler and ran a new poly line. Dwayne treated my home like it was his own. Dwayne's specialities are cooling, heating, plumbing, and roofing. I am sure Dwayne can tackle anything. Give him a call! You will be pleased with the results!

Came when expected, worked until rain & hail storm forced him off the roof. Came back as soon as the storm passed and finished up. Very polite, professional, prompt. Did not get other quotes as his seemed reasonable for the amount of work required.

OK, actually Miguel helped me by showing my how the original roofer did a very bad job, creating a situation in which I have legal recourse against the original contractor. I don't hold Rio Grande Roofing responsible for the errors of another roofer.

$350 for what Matt described as 30 minutes of work. Upon inspection, it certainly looked like 30 minutes of work. He just touched up roof cracks with sealant and missed several spots. Next time, I will do it myself. Otherwise, Matt was polite and quick (as noted).

Put in a request to have a leak repaired and got my entire roof replaced! John came by and immediately noticed hail damage and advised me through getting a home owners claim started. Thoughout the entire process, they have been responsive and professional. Truly happy with the results. Highly recommend.
