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.

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 is great! Incredibly informative about the task at hand. He explained the process of his approach to the roof repair, and walked me through why he felt that was the best approach. He did the same for a recent roof inspection. I would use Carson again if I ever needed new roof work done, and recommend him to any one. Thanks Carson!

Out of all the quotes we received, Dave Novak was the only one who delivered a quote to our house along with a shingle sample sheet. He communicated frequently as we waited for the job to start and his crew completed our roof in one day with minimal disruption. So far, we couldn't be happier with the new roof! Dave and his crew removed all the old dormer vents along the back of the house and put in new decking, which really uncluttered the back roof area. They put in a new ridge vent and replaced the entire roof with beautiful architectural shingle. The craftsmanship seems to be top-notch and assuming nothing leaks during the next monsoon (I'm sure it won't!), we'll be very pleased with our choice to use Expert Construction for the new roof.

Being an out-of-state real estate investor, I was fortunate enough to pick an outstanding roofing company in The StoneMark Company. During the quoting process, Robert Yeatman provided a professional recommendation which resulted into a good looking and well laid out roof. I am impressed with the quick completion of the roof and whatever was promised were delivered. Robert stayed in touch with me from the beginning to the end. I will surely engaged The StoneMark Company (an A+++ Company) on my next project rehab project!

Jason was great at communicating throughout the entire project, after I decided to go with him he came back and put a seal over where I had a leak in my roof. The workers left no trace of them ever being here and were courteous the entire time. The roof looks great as well!!

We had two people come out who were unable to complete the job so we contacted All Roofing. The young man who arrived was very professional and completed our repair quickly and efficiently. He noticed there were missing shingles on the roof and came back the following week to replace. They did a great job!

Jason and his crew came out and did a great job fixing our roof. We had issues with the back side of the roof leaking behind the trim and fascia board and he sealed everything right up and removed our old, leaky chimney as well. I would definitely recommend using Milliken's in the future!

Not only did TN Quality Roofing provide incredible customer service and attention to detail, they were punctual and responsive from our initial inquiry. They did a great job replacing our complicated roof at a reasonable price. At final inspection, Trevor noticed the installed shingles were defective and worked with the manufacturer to have them replaced free of charge. I cannot recommend highly enough!
