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.

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 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. 

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.

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.  

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.

White Star Roofing was a pleasure to work with. Our roof was inspected; the problem was correctly assessed and our roof was successfully repaired. I left a message the night prior to our service. By 10:30 am our roof was repaired. The price was reasonable as well. Professionalism and knowledgeability were evident within minutes. Every issue was discussed and photos were provided. My whole roof is next. I would trust White Star to do the job well. I highly recommend White Star Roofing.

He would not quit until my roof leak problem was solved. I have a flat roof and those are difficult to find where the leaks are coming from.

Ahmad called me right away after my request for roof repair. He came over the same day to examine the roof and he gave me a reasonable estimate for the repairs. The repairs were made next day and everything looks good. I would definitely recommend Ahmad and his company for roof repairs and installation.

We were talking about roof repair and during the discussion Reynaldo also suggested to check my warranty as roof is not that old and after checking we found that we still have warranty and it saved my money. I really appreciate his time, honesty, guidance which has helped. We discuss about other projects. Thanks again

Peter Whitman and his company did a great job with our re-roofing project. He met with us personally and went through all aspects of the project quote and addressed our needs and concerns. His team was careful to cover our pool and plants to not cause damage and cleaned up well after finishing. The project was completed fast and ahead of time, and would definitely recommend using him to any family and friends for their roofing needs.

I had a hole in my 11 yr old roof, created by squirrels in the most odd place. Relia (Juan) knew exactly what to do. No complaining, no exaggeration of difficulty, or fear of completing this job. Very nice guy. Their pricing is not the cheapest, but their quality of work justifies the cost. They are full insured, so I do not have to worry about the crew working on my roof. They really want to fix the problem. I believe that they will do small jobs or big jobs, based on how he interacted with me. No job is too small, at least that is how I felt. I never felt that he was trying to up-sell. Most roofing companies will try to pressure you to replace the entire roof. Not once did he state that. He believed that my roof still had at least 5 years of life in it. In fact, I liked working with them so much that I have re-hired them to come back and seal up all pipes, chimney, vents, and fix broken shingles. Relia's payment process was very convenient and secure. You do not need to be there to hand over the payment. He send me a secure payment link (by Chase) to pay on-line, via credit card (no extra fee). This is very forward thinking, compared to the other roofers I had interviewed.

Efrain and his crew were fantastic. Even during his first visit to give an estimate, he took the time to go up the roof and do a detailed study of the damage and gave me technically sound explanation of each problem and its effect on the house/ leaks. Highly recommend him for roofing jobs. He is very humble and won't just take up any job if it's not technically feasible/ sound. They also cleaned up the job site very well after being done.

They were transparent with their estimate, told me exactly what needed to be fixed, and were willing to work with my schedule. They showed up promptly as scheduled, and did a good job fixing the leak I had in my roof. Definitely recommend them.

The service was excellent. The roof repairer came on time and finished the work the same day and cleaned up before he left. Mr. DeHart followed up and paid another visit to resolve any questions. He was extra nice and offered to refund part of the money due to delay involved in him paying a follow-up visit due to a back injury.

Peter Whitman was such a pleasure to work with, and I am NOT easy to please! Peter and his crew went above and beyond to take care of me and was always present. Hard working, reliable, honest and professional. You won't go wrong with him. I referred Whitman's to several of my friends that needed roofing and all were very happy with him and his work.

Jim contacted me half an hour after I posted my need for a roofer. He came by the same day to give an estimate, which was very reasonable, and he and his crew were out first thing the next morning, right on time. They were professional, courteous, quick, and cleaned up after themselves. And our roof looks amazing! Thanks, guys!

I needed to get my roof repaired efficiently and economically so I contacted ACE Roofing Company. We had leaks coming into the house after the series of storms. I contacted ACE and they came out the next day, gave me a fair quote, and were able to come out today on a HOLIDAY to get it done before it rains later this week. I appreciate that because of my busy schedule I have very few days where I’m able to be home to get maintenance work completed. They identified five spots that were causing leaks and explained how they would fix it. He even explained that mold had formed over time inside our roof, which is something no one ever brought to our attention. They did not require a deposit and offered a longer warranty than normal. Very friendly and willing to explain the situation. During the repair they located another troubling spot and fixed it without charging me more. Eric was very good about saying that the quoted price is the only price they charge. Anything else they discover is on them. We also had algae on our stucco and Eric cleaned it on free of charge! What a guy! The work looks good. Time will tell if it holds up, but seeing as how other people are happy with their service, I’m confident we won’t have any troubles from their work.
