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.

Carlos responded to my request for a quote very quickly. The quote was accepted. The punctuality of the workers on the team was spot on and very professional. If you need to replace or repair your roof, consider talking with CARLOS at HOPE STATE ROOFING; you won't regret it.

DPR Roofing replaced the roof of our church. They communicated well with us, were done in good time, and the whole crew was nice to us. Their work made our church look a whole lot better. I would definately use them again.

Came and checked out my roof leak issue with 1 day of notice on Christmas eve. Ended up simply being a result of a build-up of leaves on the roof and was not charged! Will be going to them again for any future issues/projects I have.

We contacted Queen’s Roofing through Thumbtack. We had THE BEST experience. Chis promptly got us a quote. After speaking with him on the phone, I gained a comfort level with him. This property had been damaged in a storm and we do not live in the same town. The new roof was installed the next week. We’ve been to inspect and it looks great and site has been cleaned up. We couldn’t be more pleased with Queen’s roofing.

Jonathan and his team did a very nice job on my NEW ROOF! From the initial quote to the completion of the job, he was on top of everything. Their punctuality and continued follow-up was what really made me feel confident about giving them the job... I had a total of 4 quotes, and Zuniga Roofing was by far the most competitive and thorough. I've already passed their info. onto two of my neighbors who saw them putting the roof on and asked me for their contact info. These guys are efficient, professional and hard-working... I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Roofing is one of those things that has always terrified me as a homeowner, simply because you know that if your roof isn't in good condition, it's going to cause problems for the rest of your home. That's why when I had to replace my roof, I was really concerned about finding the right person to do the job, and get it done right the first time. And, I have to say, I couldn't have made a better choice. Not only did they get the work done quickly and correctly (it barely took them over a day, and it might have only taken them a day had there been a bit more light), the quote I was provided and the cost I paid came in well below what you can get from the big box stores (in fact, it was almost half as much), and they did it all without skimping on quality. The next time I need anything, and I mean anything, done to my roof, I'll be making one and only one call, and it will be to this pro. You won't regret giving them the job!

I worked with this company after vetting about 10 different contractors for a roofing project. They came and got the job done quickly and for a decent price point. I'm very happy with their work and will be using them for another project in the near future.

Hope state came out for and estimate and determined my roof was fine. Even though no work was done, he said no service fee was required. I offered to pay for his time and he declined, saying it was a free estimate. He also does siding work, so I'm having him come back to do that. Extremely professional.

Mr. William and I made first contact on Thumbtack on December 28th 2015 to work on my roof at my property in SC. We coordinated arrangement for him to meet my representative on Monday the 4th for an estimate. He was a no show! The date was rescheduled and we came to an estimate agreement on two work orders that need to be completed. One work order which I considered to be very urgent was a roof that was leaking which caused the second work order, the first floor ceiling damage. Not to make this a long story, 20 days past since we signed our agreement to have this work done, and nothing was done. I had checked with him every week to see if he had started on the work, but I kept getting excuses. I do understand that one week it rained more than usual…but that is exactly why this roof leak was an urgent matter. I am pretty sure that Mr. William Hernandez is an experienced professional based on all these endorsements and reviews above and below mine, but I can assure you, that in my personal experience with him; one incident like this is a complete eraser of the rest. I am truly disappointed at the disrespect for not completing the work or even starting as agreed in writing. It has been 29 days since we made first contact and nothing, I mean nothing was accomplished, but the estimate. This is totally unprofessional and irresponsible for a business to do such a thing. In his own words on his thumbtack page ; “We have 12 years of experience. All guaranteed. No job is too small.” After weeks of not finishing this work I get a text message saying the opposite;” If the rain holds off I’ll get it this afternoon…but these small jobs, I just get them when I can […] I just honestly don’t have the time to jump on them right away..” Thank you sir!
