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.

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 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. 

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. 

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.

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.  

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.

Dependable, Prompt, Honest. Had Barnett Roofing out to replace a 25 year old 3 tab roof. David came out and gave a competitive quote and walked me through what to expect on the day of the install. Barnett’s team came out and got straight to work and had the roof replaced in a day. They identified some potential leak areas and added some extra protection to ensure a leak proof roof. They also took extra care around my chimney where we have had leaks in the past. They were also able to replace my chimney cap which was very rusted and they used a color that matched the shingle color we chose. Barnett roofing is very professional and has followed up with me on several occasions to see if we had any leaks due to all of the recent rain we have been getting the last couple weeks. I highly recommend Barnett roofing for roof replacement or repair as they take the time to do it right the first time.

I highly recommend Barnett roofing. David was incredibly professional and his team did a fantastic job on my roof. They were always on time, did exactly what they said they were going to do, and never asked for extra money.

Alan was great about communication and even after running into some issues of clean up on the back end of the project he really worked to make it right without hesitation. The match to the roof repair of existing roof is perfect as if nothing was fixed which is great.

David Barnett and team did an excellent job in replacing our roof. David was very professional with his sales presentation and detailed about how the job would unfold. His crew was also very professional and worked well together, each having a specific job to complete and complete they did in a timely fashion. David made multiple visits to job, checking on the progress and to ensure we were comfortable with his crew and the job they were doing. I would strongly recommend TCS Barnett Roofing for any roofing needs you may have. Joe P.

David made me feel at ease from the beginning. Being a women I never felt that I was being taken advantage of. He gave and estimate and showed me the product he wanted to use and how the job would proceed. His crew actually were working on the roof even before I got there. They were skilled, quick and courteous. The price was essentially what the estimate was. The roof was done, the mess cleaned up and the crew was out of there in one day. Neighbors have stopped to compliment the roof and the speed with which it was done. I can't say enough about how pleased I am that I found David and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Barnett Roofing did a terrific job installing our new roof on 6-12-18 and it looks terrific. Dave Barnett is professional, personable, extremely knowledgeable, easy to work with and his crew is made up of very experienced roofers who have been with him for a long time. They are excellent workers who work well as a team and get the job done without wasting time and to high quality standards. Highly recommended.

Great job. Did exactly what was contracted for. Punctual and polite crew. Great quality. They cleaned up after themselves. And now I have a great looking new roof.

David Barnett is a thorough, detail-oriented, rigorous roofer. He provided a detailed estimate and line item list on time, was very responsive, and did a great job on the roof. His prices are a little high but in my view the extra cost was worth a job well done. The biggest negative is that now that my roof looks so nice, I'm going to have to get the house's vinyl exterior cleaned so it doesn't look shoddy in comparison!

HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND. We had 4 companies come to look at our roof. David was the only one that was punctual, he is also the only one that was not just a sales guy trying to make a sale. David worked with us and communicated with us through the entire process. While David's crew was working he was checking on them making sure they were doing the roof correctly. His guys did as they said came worked and left, no radios blasting or anything like that and were respectful as well. My wife and I can be picky, David left us with almost nothing to pick on. David knows his stuff and was great to work with. His timeline for completion was right on. I will be recommending him for my family and friends. Thank you David Barnett we love the roof.

Jeremy did a great job. He was very responsive to my initial request, assessed the area of the roof that leaked, explained how he would repair and performed the work. Upon completion, I was able to observe the repairs he completed. Very professional, quality work and a reasonable price.

Got my house roof replaced and they delivered as promised. We had weather that caused us delays and they were prompt with keeping me in the loop with how the schedule was changing. Other than ensuring that all the nails were picked up after installation, I have no complaints! Recommend!

Jeremy showed up when expected and worked very hard. He completed a variety of jobs for me in two different locations from roof repair to installing a new light. His prices are the most reasonable you could possibly find! I highly recommend Jeremy's work.

Remove and Replace Roof 14 squares. Terry Echols responded immediately and came out to give us an estimate that afternoon. The estimate was not the lowest (close to the lowest offer) but his professionalism and honest responses are what made us choose him. We are glad we did, the job was scheduled, the crew arrived on time and worked steady without distraction until complete. Terry also arrived with the crew, answered all of our questions throughout the project, and made sure everything went as planned. A few weeks after the job, we called with a concern over a starter strip and he came out right away to inspect and resolved issue immediately. I highly recommend Mr. Terry Echols for your roofing needs and will use him again for other projects.

David replaced my entire roof. He did everything according to the quote. Staff was the best. Job came in on time and on budget. He gave us great options and a great price. He is very knowledgeable and he does a great job on follow up and answering questions. Sent pictures to us during the job and is even filling out the warranty information for me. Very professional. Top notch.
