Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

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’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.

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.

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

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.

Phillip was quick to respond and provided guidance on repairing a roof leak. He provided a very honest assessment and did not try to sell anything more than was required.

Carlos was very quick to respond and help me out in case of an emergency roof leak. He was at the site within a couple of hours and helped fixed the issue in extremely stormy weather. Would definitely use him in the future if required.

Misdiagnosed problem. Overcharged me for something that didn’t need to be done according to an actual roofing company which this contracto is not and wouldn’t own up to his mistake and instead argued with me. Never doing business with this individual again and don’t let the reviews fool you because they did me. You can not rely on reviews alone.

Javier was super to work with. I called one day and he came over the next day right on time. He went into the attic and then on the roof and found the problem. He told me what it was, how long to fix it and the cost. I told him that I had had a roofer after Hurricane Harvey come and he caulked around everything. Another roofer I had called came over and estimated everything from the ground saying the pipes all had to be replaced. Never went in the attic or onto the roof, plus his estimate was 3 times more. Javier came when he said he would, did what he said he would and the price was the same. A bonus was that he took pictures before and after, so I could see the damage and the repair work he had done. He also showed me how it had leaked and showed me the rotten wood. I will definitely recommend him to my neighbors and got some of his business cards to pass out. I might add that the second estimator was an advertiser on a big talk radio show. I found Javier by looking up roofers in my area and by looking at his reviews. He had 5 stars, and he has 5 stars from me also. I would highly recommend Javier to anyone who needs roof repair.

James came out at the time he had scheduled. He had to repair the leak that the other contractor that was hired threw Thumbtack. The name of the Company was Roof Dr and I worked with Jose Gonzlaes. They did not repair it correctly and I had more water damage, James did an excellent job on repairing someone else's work. I would strongly recommend this Co as they are true Professionals. Thanks, Kathy
