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 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. 

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

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.

Nate was very personable and came out to my home promptly to give me an estimate on a new roof. I was impressed on his knowledge on roofing and felt he was someone we could trust to do the job. Although due to my own circumstances I was unable to work with him, he would be the first person id call or recommend to someone who needs a new roof or repairs. He is someone I would trust for the job.

Great work, fair prices, professional service! What a great experience! I had a leak in my rubber roof. They showed up for the estimate and work promptly and even when running a few minutes late, I was notified. While they were on the roof, they didn't just do the job, they looked for any other issues and made recommendations. I have already had them clean the gutters, do maintenance on my shingle roof and a small tile repair project. I will definitely use them again.

Had roof leak at several place, Bill came to look at roof and directed me as what to pick up for the repair I purchased material and he made repairs. At this point me must wait and see, but he felt very confident that what he found and repaired should solve the problem. Thanks Bill

All I can say is my roof looks fantastic! Primo and his crew were the best. Professional and knowledgeable I was kept informed every step of the way. They even painted my awning to match my roof and siding at no cost to me. The whole job was completed on time and the price was more than fair. I would recommend Seaboard Contractors to friends and family

DO NOT HIRE!! Call back after call back, roof still leaking; charging upwards of $1,300, for one, “Repair project”, alone, which included a few tubes of caulking and a, “verbal”, minimum, 3 -year guarantee. Another project he bribed me and asked me to write him a good review, and he would do that repair with leftover material from another job for free, as long as I wrote him a good review! That had 3 callbacks, a collapsed, ceiling causing even more damage, and was made worse than when he first arrived. His explanation for that was: “He had some bad guys on his crew that he had to get rid of,”, -Not to mention broke the screen from them bending it going outside; he never came back to fix the screen as he promised… He never came back to fix the ceiling as promised… Ben Rodriguez is a “Sheister”, “Blue Collar”, Construction, and Communications,,LLC, Great Salesman; However, DON’t be fooled, by his,”Baby Face”, and boyish, charm!! Boy oh Boy, did we get swindled !! We paid over $10,000.00 Over a period of 2 weeks, for several projects; Take The a Money and RUN, should be his motto; NOT to mention, he has since changed the name of his Company,

My garage roof was patched up until Spring weather allows it to be replaced. Mike is easy to talk to and is professional with a lot of knowledge and can explain it so the customer can understand.

In a word, outstanding from start to finish. My roof ended up being one that nightmares are made of!! Within 30 minutes of starting, the first problem was found when they discovered anywhere from 3 to 5 layers of roof, including a metal one. There was so much rotten wood and trouble spots, I think less experienced roofers would have thrown up their hands and given up. The whole team definitely went the extra mile for us. They even contacted us after the first heavy rainstorm and again a few weeks later to assure everything was okay. I thought this was very considerate. I would recommend DreamWorx Exteriors to anyone who is thinking of getting a new roof for their home.

Roof repairs-I had to go in the office, so I couldn’t be there for the repairs to be done. His didn’t sit well with me, however, Devan put my fears at ease by answering my calls while working and letting me know what he was working on and the additional problems that he found while making the repairs. Definitely would hire again.

After a heavy ice storm I noticed a leak underneath of my rubber roof. Mr. Snyder opted to come out the day following our initial contact. He accessed the problem immediately and provided me with a very reasonable quote. The work was complete in under an hour. He was very professional and also followed up with me regarding his work and warranty. I work absolutely rehire and recommend.

I needed a metal roof installed on my home and shed. I requested a quote and Jonas was out in a few days. They are reasonably priced, so I decided for them to do the work. They were able to schedule the work two weeks out. On the day of installation they arrived bright and early and were finished by the evening. All in all, great price, quick response, fast installation, and great cleanup. They were friendly and very respectful. I would recommend Kings Construction 98 LLC

I hired this contractor to detect a leak in my chimney/roof and repair it. Their website lists leak detection as a service they provide. They came, told me where they thought the leak was coming from and did the work and everything seemed to work out fine. Then we noticed water damage inside our home again and contacted Nate to come back and take a look. He proceeded to admit he had a alcoholic working on our house and that this worker did not do the chimney repair the way he would have done it himself. He said the worker did not clean out the cut and he believed that was what caused the water damage. I asked him if he would cover the $360.00 it would cost us to fix the interior water damage and he became extremely defensive and was down-right unprofessional about it. He made awkward and immature comments towards me, he made the excuse that at the time I hired him, he wasn’t able to offer leak detection and overall made me feel terrible for trying to ask him to “make things right.” Please beware, he doesn’t offer warranties on workmanship for repairs only offers lifetime warranties on shingle roof installs. This whole experience came down to Nate not caring about customer service. He rather defend poor workmanship than make things right with a customer. I hope anyone considering hiring this contractor holds Nate accountable for what he claims are offered services (like leak detection) and if you can’t ensure Nate does the work than don’t go with him because the worker he hired was not capable of doing the job.
