Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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.

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.

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 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.

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

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. 

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.

Very impressed with this company. Professional and took the time to explain exactly what was going on and give us options. We have already had them back for another roof issue. I’ll only be calling Whitt roofing for future roof needs.

I would highly recommend M&N Roofing! They were great to work with and both Mark and Craig were very professional. They were on time and on budget and cleaned up the roofing mess. Very pleased with the end results. My new roof looks great. I will use them again for other projects that come up. Thanks again.

From Matt and Mark to the sub-contractors they work with, Ohio Roofing Solutions was exceptionally professional from the first meeting through to the end. They were thorough, honest, and timely. They did a total roof replacement, including securing the city permit, communicating with the insurance company, and working with us to select materials. They executed the project flawlessly, setting a reasonable time frame, and providing us with updates on a regular basis before during and after the project began. And once the work began, other contractors working on a neighbor's house commented on the efficiency and professionalism of the crew replacing our roof. All-in-all Ohio Roofing Solutions provided an excellent experience. We highly recommend them.

Jason Kear and his crew at Summit Building & Roofing Company went above and beyond what was necessary. They worked quickly and efficiently, sent photographs of the roofing job at different phases (since I couldn't be present to see the job myself) and even went back to check on unrelated issues for me. I would highly recommend them to anybody needing work done.

I am still waiting to get my project done with Midwest Roof Renovation, so I need to wait until the work is completed

Ok, so I've hired over 15 contractors in the past 3 weeks and spent about $45k polishing this mid century modern house we just bought. My interaction with Craig from M&N Roofing has been the best contractor experience I've ever had working with one. I'm not embellishing. His construction knowledge and work ethic is on point and obviously honest. All commitments and promises, oral and in writing were met and often exceeded. His pricing is fair. His contract is reasonable. I really feel like we both got a good deal.I have no complaints. The workers cleaned up superbly. And Craig came back the next morning to carefully walk and reinspect our roof to ensure no corners were cut. His hand held industrial magnet was always full with picked up roofing nails, and there's zero trash and roofing nails when he was done with his inspection. I especially appreciated how his crew listened and were careful to not let any roofing trash or grit contaminate our recently acquired koi pond. No fish were harmed. Perfect. THIS is the company to hire if you're looking for a 4 or 5 star rated impact resistant new tear off roof installed. I'm going to save $217 a year off of my $1205 yearly homeowner's insurance policy by having a new 4 star rated impact resistant roof installed. Suggest you call your homeowner's ins. agent and ask about that, too. You don't get it unless your roofer fills out the certificate and you remember to ask for it. A telling point how good they are and how they take their profession seriously is that when I asked Craig as I was considering him if he had any local references whom I could speak with, and he absolutely did! So many other contractors in all professions simply do not do this because they don't care or they don't ask their raving fan customers to speak up for them. So Craig up and calls a previous roof purchaser who happens to live exactly 500 yards away from me, to pick up the phone and tell me about his roof tear off purchase experience. A block away. And I found Craig on Thumbtack, not Yelp or by word of mouth.... Craig can ask me to call his new roof purchaser prospects anytime...I'm there for him. He earned it. It just can't get any better a purchasing experience than this! Hire them without hesitation.

Naaman came to do an estimate on some drainage work that needed to be done. He was very professional. While he was there I told him about some leaky spots I had on the roof. He climbed up on the roof to take a look and found the problem areas. He said he had some time to work on it today. He ended up replacing 18 shingles during a very hot day.

Roof was repaired however, the soffit wasn't repaired. It was to my knowledge (and no doubt a misunderstanding of the quote received) that the soffit would be repaired. Other than that great work and punctual service.

I prefer to work with contractors who are honest, professional, licensed, insured, responsive and punctual that do good work at a reasonable price. I believe Summit Roofing fits the bill.

I was very impressed with Ohio Roofing Solutions. They were professional from the moment I began working with them. All of the guys kept great communication with me throughout the process. Since I was trying to get my roof built during the winter, weather conditions were an issue. They were very proactive in calling me to give weather updates and how it would affect their construction schedule. We got lucky and had a warm Saturday, so they were able to come out and get it done. They even sent pictures of their progress to my phone. At the end of the process, I was able to meet up with my salesman again, which was nice to bring it full circle and go over the whole job together. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing a roof.

This guy is great. His estimates are affordable, he went out of his way to tarp my roof at no additional cost to prevent further damage until the project was finished. Look forward to meeting with you again and finally finishing the project.

Ty came out and gave us a quick estimate. He came back when he said he would, and was quick to respond via email. He was friendly and transparent regarding the services needed to fix a small leak in our roof.

Very informative, they use have good supplies. They sent an installer to my house to make me a quote. He got on the roof and in the attic to check the plywood. He wasn’t pushy he showed me what they used and why they like it and believe in the product.

Good service and reasonable pricing to help patch up an older leaking roof. His first attempt at a fix didn't fully solve the problem, he came back the following week for free to try again and seems to have solved the issue. Would hire again.

The quality of work done on my home-the roof, chimney, downspout, and siding repair- was very good. I’m pleased with the results. The only thing that tainted my experience with Summit was the communication pertaining to when the work would be completed. Otherwise it would have been a 5 star experience.

Don did a great job fixing flashing on my roof and installing a chimney cap. He was very responsive to all of my questions and messages - which as a first time homeowners I appreciated a lot. Don was also very flexible in his availability. I highly recommend Don and will be calling him in the future.
