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 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. 

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.

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.

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.

I was looking to stop a roof leak and received a very reasonable quote from James Green. Later, after consultation with Mr. Green and several other roofers, I found that there was hail and other damage to the roof and I would need a full roof replacement. Mr. Green was very knowledgeable about the fact that our roof did not have proper ventilation or proper diversion of the water around the chimney area. Mr. Green offered me a quote for a new roof, ridge vent and construction of a cricket in front of the chimney. The quote was reasonable and less than any of the other roofers had offered for just the roof alone. I chose Mr. Green not only because of the quoted price but because he seemed to care that we got a quality roof and had the deficiencies repaired so we would not have to worry about future leaks. Mr. Green and his crew worked diligently, completing the job in two days. They cleaned up and hauled off all the old shingles and trash, leaving my property in as good a condition as if they hadn’t been there. Mr. Green also offered an exceptional warranty for his services. I would strongly recommend him for small roof repairs or entire roof replacements.

I needed to get section of my roof repaired where flashing was not done correctly years ago when I had my roof replaced. I decided to try thumbtack for the first time to see if I could find any quality roofers. Luckily, I found Hans. He came out to take a look and give me an estimate on the repair. I didn't ask but he looked at my entire roof, took pictures and educated me about my options and what he left was the best solu

Hans came over on a Saturday morning to give me an evaluation and was very knowledgeable about what exactly needed to be done to resolve my roofing problem. It wasn't a big job but he handled it as if it were and I appreciated it. Very trustworthy. I was traveling when he did the job and he sent me great photos of the finished work. I’d definitely use him for future roofing needs. Thanks Hans.

Generation Roofing responded immediately when I reached out for an estimate and were able to provide an estimate within 24 hours. The crew (Joe and his father--this is a family owned business, with decades of experience) were able to start work within a few days. There was an area of significant rot that required removal and installation of the wood underlayment, as well as 3 chimneys to ice shield and a standard mill house roof/pitch that needed complete replacement with architectural shingles. The team was very responsive and the value was excellent--this team easily beat the other 3 bids on price with zero sacrifice to quality. We had a permitting snag half-way through the project, due to this particular house being in a historic district. Joe immediately addressed and resolved the permitting issue and was still able to finish the work within 2 days. I will be recommending Generation Roofing to local family and friends.
