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 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.

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.

Carson was wonderful. I had a little bit of storm damage to my roof and gutters. He was polite, professional, and did a great job explaining everything that he was doing. I was satisfied with the repairs and would definitely recommend Top Gun to anyone needing work on their roof.

Doug made the whole prosess very easy, and his crew was fast! When they were done, they cleaned up the whole area so you would never know they were there, expect for the new roof! Doug inspected the roof and told me insurance should cover most of the cost. Since I had planned to spend over $5,000 on a new roof, I was very happy to find out that with insurance, it cost me around $1,800! Trust Doug, he will do things right.

I was very impressed with this company. He came the same day as I contacted him and looked at my roof. I received the estimate the next day. It was almost half of other estimates I got. Plus he did not ask for money upfront. I paid when the job was finished. I had the roof installed the next week. We were delayed a day because of the weather. I had good communication with Don and knew exactly what the plan was. On the assigned day, they were to be here at 8am. The men were all here, unloaded and were working before 8. All the workers were very polite and respectful. Not just to me, but also to my property, my children and my dogs. The owner Don even drove around helping us look for one of my dogs that got out. Because of the help from the guys on the roof, he was found fairly quickly. Roof was finished in one day. The next day, my gutter was installed and everything was cleaned up. There was no mess left behind. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Don and his workers. I would gladly use him again and I strongly recommend them. I am adding a few pictures of the roof. They are not the best, but they will give you an idea of the work. I forgot to take a before picture.

Very easy to work with. Sent someone to look at the roof same day and by that night had a very reasonable estimate which made hiring them that much easier. Work was done the next day, quickly and with precisely. Thank you again!

Sam was very responsive to our request and provided a free estimate after going out to visit the property on his own time. He made himself available to do the roof work and offered to get it done within a couple of days. Highly recommended!

Couldn't be happier with my new Roof. Robert was so attentive, helped me understand all the details, gave me a great price and moved on the project much quicker than I had ever anticipated. His guys showed up early, got right to work, didn't slack at all and finished it in what I thought was record time. The quality of their work is excellent. They did everything we discussed incuding removing my old satellite dish which I had actually forgotten about myself. They cleaned up what little mess they made and I could hardly tell they had been here other than seeing my brand new roof installed. I don't think that anyone can beat his price and his sense of urgency in getting the job done makes StoneMark a great choice. Highly recommend.
