Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much is it to repair a roof?

The average cost to repair a roof is $300, but this cost depends on several factors. The best way to find out how much it will cost to repair your roof is to get several free cost estimates from roofers near you.

To learn more about prices, read “How much does it cost to repair a roof?

Can a handyman repair a roof?

A handyman may be able to repair simpler problems on a roof, such as damaged shingles or gutters. However, it’s important that you hire a pro who’s properly trained and skilled to handle your roof repairs. When in doubt, research the licensing requirements in your state, and review several handymen and roofers before making a decision. 

Is it better to repair or replace a roof?

It depends on the severity of the damage. If a falling branch or a windstorm damages an isolated patch of shingles, you could probably repair it. However, if the underlayment is damaged or if the whole roof is showing signs of wear, you might need to replace it. 

Always have a professional roofer near you assess the roof before making a decision.

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.

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.

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.  

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a roofer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a roofer, choose virtual platforms like video chats instead of face-to-face consultations. When the roofer is working on your roof, avoid any physical contact, sanitize all involved spaces and surfaces, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

Achilles Roofing and Exterior came by to fix my leak in the middle of rain. I really appreciated the speediness of their response and showing up quickly to get the flashing repaired. Though the price may have a bit high, but the work was done promptly in the rain. I would recommend if there is an immediate need to repair a leak on the roof.

Eric and his team are outstanding! My roof started leaking....I got Eric’s number from Thumbtack and he contacted me within 2 minutes. They came a few hours later and assessed the problem, gave me a proposal and they’re here now doing the repairs. They do everything they say. No nonsense, very professional, knowledgeable and informative. Tile roofs can’t be serviced by just anyone but this team is the best. Please call them for your roof repairs and or home repair and remodeling projects. You will be so glad you did!!

James is a hardworking, upfront and honest guy. My roof was damaged by a large limb that fell and broke a few ceramic tiles. He spent a lot of time making sure that the tiles that needed to be replaced matched my roof exactly. Once he matched the tiles he repaired the roof within a couple hours. Great Job James!

Carlos did an excellent job with leaky roof due to solar panels not being sealed. He brought his crew next day and did a bang out roof repair. The place was left clean and tidy and all at a very reasonable price. Thank you for a job well done!!

Excellent service, Eric was super fast to respond to a roof leak we had at home. He coordinated the repair with the tenant and completed the repair in a few hours while sending pictures of the damages, progress, and completion. Recommend strongly and will work with Eric again in the future. Julien

This is one of the best roofing companies that I have used. They are very responsive and normally respond within minutes. They take pride in their work and stand behind it. If I had any issues they would come out and rectify the situation and I would totally refer them for anyone needing roof repairs.

Be careful when you signed the contract with Roof Fox Houston based on drone survey results only. You may overpay for some repairs that are not needed. I was very disappointed.

Missing and lifting shingles replaced. Mr. Kelley was very personable. He inspected the roof prior to giving me an estimate for the work which I really liked. He was very honest concerning the repairs actually needed for the roof currently versus charging me for repairs that could wait until a future date. He completed the job in a timely manner. At no point during our interaction did I feel uncomfortable or felt as though I was being taken advantage of. Mr. Kelley was very well prepared. He presented his business license and bond. He had all the necessary tools to complete the project. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing roof repairs and I will definitely hire him for future projects.
