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 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 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

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.

I thank their company very much. Also, they follow COVID-19 guidelines, that's great as the virus continues to infect people without notice.

I had all but wonderful experience with PES construction on their roofing job. The quote was detailed with all the explanation of what to expect and what's the pricing of the labor and materials used(breaking down to what materials used further) and the men were really punctual and worked all day and finished the whole roof in 2 days. I am definitely recommending them to my friends. True professionals with neat job.

This is the roofing service provider I'd like to recommend in our neighborhood for sure. Much appreciated by owner's honesty and sincerity, along with competitive quote and warranty assurance, we had company come over and fix a pre-existing issue which should have been remedied long and then caused leaky issue. Technicians came right on time with all tools/material/protective masks (not just for work safety but also for clients' health concerns amid covid-19 pandemic). While one on roof working on the problematic area, the others already started cleaning discarded pieces leaving place clean and tidy just the way it was. Project got done in a timely manner, actually earlier than expected. 24 hrs later there was a heavy raining in the area which wasn't expected but scrupulously verified if repair has been done correctly. Needless to say, white star roofing would be on our top contractor list when it comes to re-roofing in a couple of years later as part of property renewal.

Sam has been amazing from start to finish. I reached out to him and he came out on the same day and gave me an estimate. If I had questions he made sure the questions were answered. His crew came out and completed the job in a timely manner. I was really impressed with the drone. Thank you Sam and your crew for my new roof. I would definitely recommend Sam to anyone who is looking for quality work on their roof.

Carlos was able to come out during a bad storm two hours after I called him and did more that what was expected. He was very faired price and negotiable. If I ever need anything again for my roof he will be the first person I call.

White Star Roofing was contacted and came over right away to evaluate the situation. Then they established all of my options to let me decide what work I wanted to be done. They can back the next day to start it and completed the work. They also followed up with me to ensure all was good.

We are having issues with our funding due to our Homeowners Insurance Claims. Having to reschedule but they are super supportive and very understanding and once it’s straightened out I’m definitely using them for our Roof Replacement, new gutters & interior ceiling repairs. I highly recommend them!!

James was exceptional in communication and scheduling. Very upfront about costs, professional about repair and warranty offered. Clear website. Appreciated that they specialize in roofs, aren't turned off by a mere repair rather than replacement, and aren't trying to flip houses, apply siding and power wash as they branch out their specialty.

Carlos is a gentleman, and I am really impressed by his professionalism. Very mature, polite and top notch quality work and finish. I wish I could give him 10 stars. Contacted him on Sunday late night for a roof work on Monday, and he showed up 5 min before the appointment at 8:00 am. His commitment and truthfulness really astonished me as I have not seen yet another person/business like him. I told him you do not need reviews to fetch customers (as he did not ask me either), but I thought I should let other people know about sincere and honest persons like Carlos for their roofing needs. Call him, and I am sure you will feel no different.
