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.

Christian of Miller’s roof was punctual, professional and made the process of getting an estimate on a new roof painless! Additionally, his knowledge and candor on the issues on my roof reassured all my worries and I look forward to working with him in the future and would absolutely recommend him to homeowners.

Brandon and the entire team of St. Louis Contracting, Inc were completely amazing throughout this whole process. This project looked overwhelming and Brandon and his team took the reins and fixed the back roof my house. Although more work remains (deck, yard/landscaping) I can breathe easily that the back roof is not going to fall or blow away. Not only did Brandon’s team do the roof but replaced some of the siding to the structure above the roof since they discovered it was in such bad shape. Thank you again Brandon and I look forward to working with you for the future projects. I would definitely recommend St. Louis Contracting.

Paul gave an excellent presentation of the work that would be completed. He showed us the problem areas of our roof and gave options in order for us to make an informed decision. He had samples of the materials that the company would use, explained what the work entailed. Once the work started, he documented the entire process by sharing pictures at each stage from the removal of the old roof to the installation of our new roof. The work was done in 2 days, no debris were left behind. They even covered the neighbor’s car just in case the wind blew any scraps away. I strongly recommend Five Boro Remodeling for doing such a wonderful job at a great price!

Leo and his team helped me out with a new roof due after the snow storm last week. They assessed the situation immediately and understood the urgency of a damaged roof with elderly people living in my home. He replied to my numerous text immediately and made sure I understood point by point what he was doing and why it needed to be done. I fell 100% satisfied with his work and professionalism. If you need an honest contractor then you need Leo.

I chose Sino Empire after seeing their response to a 1 star review: passionately defending their reputation! These are man, that work hard, and do the right thing for the customers and the building! I knew that this is a company I want to use for my problem roof. I had a leek from the second floor roof, and John came, fixed quickly and professionally, John did not promise that the leek won’t come from another place, and called me on the first rainy day after the job, to make sure it was done right! I am waiting for a quote for a porch closing price, and sure to choose John to do the job.

These guys did a good job repairing my roof which was leaking. They were very professional and very responsive. They came and did the job in a 1 day at a very good price. Let’s see how it’ll hold up and I’ll update the review in a few years if need be.

I had a good experience with this company! Eric came to my house for an estimate, he was on time and was very professional. He took photos and videos and thoroughly explained to me what is happening w the rooftop and presented the pricing and what they will be doing.

I had Mr. Roman fix quite a few problematic areas in my home. He arrived at the appointed time as discussed and was very professional. I needed some roofing repairs and plumbing work done and decided to give Thumbtact a try. I must say that he did a wonderful job with both and his work quality is impeccable. I highly recommend Mr. Roman for quality work. He's my new go to for all my home issues. Thank you Mr. Roman. 5 stars all the way!

I just want to say as always I'm beyond satisfied with the work they did to my house. This is the second time I used this company, and just like the first they left me far from disappointed. And as soon as I realized my ceiling was dripping buckets of water, and my roof sprung a massive leak; the first company that came to mind for the job was definitely Connors & Connors.  Just like the first time I used these guys I couldn't be more satisfied with their work. The job was done fast, the price was outstanding, the work excellent,  and the professional mannerism was more then enough to know I'll be using these guys anytime I need some work done to my home. I definitely recommend these guys to anyone that's looking for some real good professionals.

Overall, I had a good experience working with CNJ Construction and Roofing. They were knowledgeable, professional and punctual. The cost of the job was also a fair value (I had 4 quotes where 3 were very close and they were in the middle). Alan (the project foreman) even followed up after the first rain to make sure there were no more leaks. I would definitely consider using them again for future needs. The reason I have to take away one star was because the sales guy who quoted the work tried to say that perimeter flashing was not included and would be additional. Before the crew was finished I showed Alan the original quote I received from the owner which states flashing was included. Rather than have me take it up with the owner or the sales guy, Alan sealed the perimeter. Alan was great to work with.

Christian was a pleasure to work with from the beginning till the end. The proposal was professionally drafted and explained all the services. The crew arrived on time, were respectful of our space, and worked efficiently. I took some time deciding on what company to go with. I was extremely pleased with my choice. Christian's rate was competitive and he had something that other professionals didn't have, the willingness to work with us, detailed explanation: cons, and pros of the technique. He wasn't pushing like others but patiently explained the process and he clearly tried to save us money without compromising the quality of the work. He was completely understanding of our needs, and of the urgency of the project. He was flexible and available. He is very proud of the job he does and we trust that our roof is in good hands for many years to come. I will definitely recommend Christian and will be using him with our projects
