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.  

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.

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.

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 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.

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. 

Reviews for Greenville roofing professionals

James and team were very professional, punctual, and reasonably priced. He clearly explained all of the roofing issues we had while still offering a discount in certain areas. I’d highly recommend Consumer First Roofing for any roofing related issue.

Great response time. We had three bad leaks that resulted in needing a whole roof replacement due to the age of our roof. Bailey's was quick to get us a quote, very responsive to emails, and got the new roof installed all in one day. The construction did knock loose one of our railings on our porch, but it can be screwed back in. They did a great job of cleanup in removing all nails and all the old roof pieces. The new roof looks great! I would definitely recommend them and use them in the future.

John responded to my request the same day and offered to come do a free inspection the next day. He reached out to me whereas the other company I contacted wanted me to call them. He came to do the inspection while I was on lunch break and was able to quickly state what my problem was and what it would take to fix. He even let me know about another issue we were having with our gas chimney dripping water and that's not even what we called him for! He gave an honest evaluation and a great price to fix our flashing on our chimney which was causing our leak.My warranty roofing company wouldn't have been able to come see our home until Wednesday of the next week. John was able to have our roof fixed by Monday after just doing an inspection on Thursday! John's associates came and fixed our roof quickly on Monday and it looks wonderful. We have not had any issues thus far and would definitely recommend John bailey's Roofing Service to our family and friends. We look forward to calling his company whenever we need roofing work done!

I was very impressed with the fast response Mr. Bailey and his son had when I contacted them about my roof. Mr. Bailey came out immediately and assessed my roof and gave me a flat out price. No gimmicks, no games or extra fees. The next day his son came out to fix my roof and told me if it wasn't fixed , that he would come back out free of charge to fix it. I have been through a few hard rain storms and I have not had to call him back. He also noticed my gutters were backed up and cleaned them without adding to my bill. I would highly recommend them and I feel they did an outstanding job and loved their quick response time.

I contact John about getting a quote for replacing the roof on my house. While he was there, I also had him give me a quote for covering the Fascia and Soffit with vinyl and replacing the Gutters - as these also needed to be done; However, I need to get an idea of the cost so I could plan when to have it done. Bailey's Roofing gave me a a very competitive quote with an amount that I found to be very reasonable for the work to be done. Many of the larger companies that quoted this project came back with prices that I felt were outrageous and overpriced! John and his son, Doug were wonderful to work with!!! They were both very responsive to my many questions. Everyone on the crews were very courteous and did a great job with both the installation and cleanup for the project. John and Doug went above and beyond to make sure I got exactly what I wanted and that I was satisfied with the end product. I cannot say enough great things about this company! I have referred them to several coworkers and will continue to recommend them to anyone who needs roofing or gutter work done.
