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 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 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 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.

Jason and his team did a fantastic job on my roof. From the beginning, Jason always kept me abreast of the situation of my roof and offered me a competitive price for roof replacement even though I was a FHA 203K. Afterwards, Jason was able to discover issues on my roof and resolve them while working on it - while throwing in gutters to boot. I have had the best experience with Paradigm, and whole-heartedly recommend Jason and his team. You will not regret it!

Eagleye Roofing were absolutely great. They responded back to me within an hour of contacting them about my roof, were out the next day to look at the roof and write out an estimate. Within the next few days the roofers were out to start, and finished in 1 day! Both Mike and Anthony (the two gentleman I was in contact with throughout the process) were both extremely professional and made a great impression. It only took a week from my initial contact with Eagleye to my roof being completed. I would definitely recommend these guys to anyone who needs their roof repaired!

Thanks to Eric & team for helping us through the insurance process and for getting us a new roof quickly (with the algae-resistant shingles we needed for our home, which is surround by trees)! Really appreciate the friendliness of the roofing crew as well and that they completed the job in one day.

Jason was very responsive to our concerns. He first came to our house within hours of our first request. We had had 2 well-known companies fail to follow through on estimates and visits so this was very refreshing. He quickly had an estimate to us, and then to our insurance company. Within 10 days of our first contact, we had our roof on. His crew arrived about 7 AM and had the old roof stripped by 2 PM. Jason had told us they would be finished by 6 PM but I was dubious at this point. But sure enough, the team of 4 conscientious and polite guys had the roof finished by 7 PM. They worked very well together. They were courteous and did a great job of cleaning up! I've found very few nails and just a few bits of the old sheeting that blew off the roof. By contrast, neighbors are now on Day 5 of having their similarly sized roof repaired with a different roofing company. We love the result! Jason also changed what the insurance company had planned for, upgrading the felt underlayment and adding some rain/snow guard sheeting, which the insurance company agreed to pay for after he discussed with them. His crew also completely refurnished the flashing around our two 105 year old chimneys. We had lost a good number of shingles during a major windstorm in July, then had a torrential rain just before the new roof went on. Fortunately, only the front porch roof leaked that day. I am very glad I didn't play the calling and waiting game with another roofer. I have great peace of mind knowing that our house is once again safe from water damage. Thanks to Jason and his crew that I can enjoy the sound of rain on my roof again!

We found our new go-to roofers. We booked Rock Solid Roofing for a repair. They were extremely responsive, professional and timely with the repair, and did excellent work at a good value. Our roof leak was repaired successfully, with the owner’s promise to help us work through any future issues. Will use them again! Highly recommend!

Eric was professional and quick to set everything up for our new roof. His team was efficient and respectful of the property. They did a high quality job all in one day with a full cleanup. Also very accommodating of my requests. They provide guarantees of their service and the price was great as well. Overall, would highly recommend Eric and his team to anyone looking for a new roof.

Eric was a great choice for our roof. Very responsive and he came out after we had a wind storm that blew off around 20 shingles. I thought we'd be paying for a whole new roof, but Eric got us one at a discount by working with our insurance. It sounded too good to be true, and it took some time due to our insurance dragging their feet, but he eventually got it done. The work quality was great, his crew finished the job in just a day, and even threw in some new vents. If you need any roofing work I'd highly recommend!

Viktor was very quick and punctual! He came over and looked at our roof the day we messaged him and completed the work the following day. It was great!

Viktor sure saved the day! He arrived very promptly after I placed an "emergency" request for roof repair! I had a hole in my roof from a fallen tree limb, it was raining, and water was dripping inside my house! Viktor assessed the damage & quoted me a cost to repair. Once I agreed it was a fair price he immediately started on the job and worked until after dark to complete! He even attended to another issue around my chimney & even cleared a bunch of moss off my roof. I can't even express how grateful I was to have located him & would certainly recommend his work to others!!

Paradigm Construction recently completed a roof replacement job at my mother's house. Working with Jason was truly a great experience. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He kept the lines of communication open and kept us informed on each step of coordination and construction. His company has workers compensation insurance. The price was reasonable and his crew work was very careful and on schedule. We will definitely recommend Paradigm Construction for roof replacement projects.

Jason was always easy to contact and get updates about our roof and gutter work. Since we were doing this during the winter, the schedule for when they were able to come out to work changed depending on how well the weather cooperated. Jason was very up front about this and kept us in the loop for when he was able to get things scheduled. The process from getting a quote to finished project was quick, easy, and did not require me to take off extra time at work to make sure things got done. The day the crew came to work on the house I couldn't even tell they were there other than the roof looked great! They cleaned up everything very well. The whole project, new roof + new gutters and down spouts, was much more affordable through Paradigm than several other larger companies we got quotes from, and the quality of work was top notch. Highly recommend Jason and his team for any of your roofing needs!

From the moment I called Paradigm for my roofing needs, I experienced nothing but the most wonderful customer service I have ever experienced! Jason was professional, polite, prompt, organized and personable! He went above and beyond assisting me with ordering a specialized roofing product and having it delivered and installed. Additionally he coordinated with both my electrician and an insulation company to complete the entire project all in one day. I couldn't be happier with the result and I wholeheartedly recommend this company! Fantastic experience!
