Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much is it to repair a roof?

The average cost to repair a roof is $300, but this cost depends on several factors. The best way to find out how much it will cost to repair your roof is to get several free cost estimates from roofers near you.

To learn more about prices, read “How much does it cost to repair a roof?

Can a handyman repair a roof?

A handyman may be able to repair simpler problems on a roof, such as damaged shingles or gutters. However, it’s important that you hire a pro who’s properly trained and skilled to handle your roof repairs. When in doubt, research the licensing requirements in your state, and review several handymen and roofers before making a decision. 

Is it better to repair or replace a roof?

It depends on the severity of the damage. If a falling branch or a windstorm damages an isolated patch of shingles, you could probably repair it. However, if the underlayment is damaged or if the whole roof is showing signs of wear, you might need to replace it. 

Always have a professional roofer near you assess the roof before making a decision.

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.

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.

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.  

Do roofers offer remote or virtual services?

To find out the degree to which a roofing service can operate remotely, it’s best to contact local roofers and roofing repair specialists near you.

See if they will schedule a video call so that you can show them the project and get an idea of the cost. This will also allow them to give you recommendations on the type of roofing material, and the best time of year to do the project. You might also be able to book a roof installation or repair service far out in advance.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a roofer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a roofer, choose virtual platforms like video chats instead of face-to-face consultations. When the roofer is working on your roof, avoid any physical contact, sanitize all involved spaces and surfaces, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

Patti L.
Nate and his team came by and did my roof repair. They did an excellent job at a reasonable price. Nate noticed the garage had a few blown off roof tiles and had that fixed at no extra charge. I am so glad I called them and when it's time to replace the roof they will be my first call!

I was seeking an emergency roof repair as it was raining inside my house every time it rained outside. Nate responded quickly and came out the next day and made repairs. The price was reasonable for a emergency repair and he was honest and up front about the work to be done and suggestions for things that I may want done in the future. I appreciated his quick timing for the repair and his honesty, and not trying to upsell. I would absolutely use this company again.

Paul and his crew came out to repair our roof and his professionalism and fair pricing was outstanding. It’s not easy finding good specialty contractors. I’m thankful to have found them and plan to use their services again.

Listen Vito got back to me almost immediately after I reached out. He quoted me a fair price and explained the process to me, even explaining that there will not be an exact color match because of the contrast between new and weathered shingles. He and a co-worker arrive promptly and performed the repair efficiently. I would recommend CRP to anyone in need of a roof repair.

Peoples Choice saved us from disaster when a porch roof started leaking shortly before the sale of our house was scheduled to close. He came out to look at it while I was still texting with him on Thumbtack! He completely repaired the roof a few days later, on the first sunny day, between snowstorms. The interior was dry as a bone in no time. We highly recommend Peoples Choice! FIVE STARS! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Vito, Was so polite and responsive to his changing circumstances. He got stuck on a job and had to stay an extra day, so he continuously stayed in contact to let me know when he would be able to repair our roof and diligently work with us to get the job done before the next rain. They finished it quickly and neatly. They checked the driveway and surrounding area to make sure any nails and debris were cleaned up. Really nice group of guys.

I still have a leak inside my closet. In out of 400 dollars which was to repair leak and install chimney cap. He showed me a photo of a chimney filled with tires and said it was my chimney, but after I thought about it his ladder couldn't reach my chimney and when I asked to see photo again he wouldn't send it. Hes very unreliable. He was a no call no show two days in a row. When that happened I decided to Google him and he did another man same way took his money and refused his calls. This guy is an amateur and never should have been let on this site. He just has an LLC and the ability to jump on a roof. I would never hire him again and wish I hadn't paid him upfront. The picture is his solution to the bird problem I had instead of installing chimney cap.
