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.

I was able to get my roof repaired rather than get a whole new roof. I am so happy to have people honest with me and give me options rather than push a whole new roof.

I called Kingdom Exteriors for my elderly mother who had a very leaky roof. She is very satisfied with her new roof. The job included a ridge vent, membrane roofing on a flat porch and shingles on the pitched roof. The price was right and the work was done expertly. Mr. Lamb's crew was prompt, professional and fast. The arrived in the morning and did not leave until the entire roof was completed that evening. They cleaned up completely and the house looks great!

Rome wasn’t built in a day but our roof was! I couldn’t be happier with the new roof and how fast and competent the company was. After the cleanup I couldn’t find one piece of evidence that my roof was done the day before. They are extremely meticulous in the cleanup! I would highly recommend hiring this company!!!

Mr. Reedy promptly came out and did an estimate on our roof. He was a great assistance in working with our insurance company in getting funds for the installation of the roof. In less than a couple of weeks we had a new roof. Mr. Reedy is experienced, honest, and works to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time and kept us informed about the progress of the work being done. I would recommend him and in fact did recommend him to install another roof. We will use him on another project when we receive an estimate on it.

Our experience with Sam at R&D was great. He was quick to answer messages, give us quotes for repairing our roof and lawn maintenance for next season, and very friendly. It took just a few minutes for him to repair the roof and he took photos showing us the damage and after the repair. We'll definitely be in touch for repairing more once Spring comes. Thank you for being so fast to repair our roof! Highly recommended!

We nended some repairs to a relatively new roof. Keith has been good about responding but it's not repaired yet. I hope to update this soon with a full repair! Keith came again and then sent a contractor to do additional repairs. They replaced a small portion of the roof and hopefully it's repaired. Keith said we could call again if it's still leaking! We appreciate the continued service!

I had a dry-rotted board in the attic that supports the roof that needed repaired. Very professional, and knew what I wanted and how I wanted it fixed. He came with the necessary things needed to fix the roof should we decide to hire him and we did! Got the job done quickly and was reasonably priced. We found out that he also repairs chimneys and gave us an estimation on that job...we hired him for that also!

F.V.C. Is an amazing business. Keith the owner was early to our appointment, GAO on his prices and hasty with getting the job setup and started. I’d go through F.V.C. Again for my roofing needs.

Tom came out and was able to make the minor repairs of sealing around the vent that was leaking. I was happy it could all be done in the same trip. He inspected the roof and chimney to make certain no other issues were present.

Sealed up the leaks around exhaust fan box on the roof and also covered exposed nail heads and sealed some areas that were potential leaks. Seemed to do a good job but won't know for sure until we get more rain.
