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 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 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)

Concrete Roof

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. 

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.

I had a small flat roof on my sunroom which needed repaired or replaced. Within an hour Jose Torres roofing replayed back to me; and wanting to give me a quote to fix my flat roof. Jose met with me the very next day to go over the roof. He was prompt and arrived at the house when he said he would. Jose was very professional and showed common courtesy and respect. He brought with him all the samples which he would use to repair my roof. He demonstrated how the membrane system worked. Plus his plan on how he would repair my roof; because I had wet rotten OSB (under-ply) under the gravel. I was very impressed with that meeting. His bid was right where I needed it to be (much lower than other bids) so; I hired Jose to repair the roof. He did a fantastic job. It only took him several hours to remove all the gravel, replace sections of OSB and install the membrane system. His crew left my yard looking better than when he got there. The tarp, clamps and rocks I had covering the roof were folded and set aside. I am very placed with his work. I would recommend Jose Torres roofing to anyone. Wade Orem; Utah

Roof looks great! When quoting, Shane took a number of pictures of my roof to thoroughly show what was wrong and in need of repair. He was prompt and even early -- always messaging beforehand when he was on his way. Shane was responsive and professional, completing the project while I was out of town.

Brian with Blackridge Roofing was our contact. He was professional, conscientious, and took the time to educate us in the process, answer our concerns, meet our needs, and came with an estimate that was very competitive. He and his team worked expeditiously and professionally, keeping the site clean during the process and making sure that all nails & debris were thoroughly removed at completion. The roof looks great and the install was done with precision. The level of stress and apprehension I felt coming into this project was pretty high and I can honestly say that Brian met all my concerns and questions so that I felt very at ease in the end. I would definitely recommend Brian and Blackridge Roofing for your roofing needs.

High winds damaged the shingles on our home. Solaroo submitted a competitive bid, with a thorough explanation of the needed repairs. Our insurance agent agreed with Solaroo's assessment of damage. Within two days, Solaroo removed all the old roofing and replaced it with apgraded code materials. We are very pleased with the results.

These guys are worth every penny. They weren't my cheapest bid, but they were the easy choice. After the roof was finished, quicker than expected, they sent out somebody to make sure not only that it was properly done, but things were cleaned up. He even cleaned up some stuff that had been missed. EXTREMELY thorough in what they do to make sure it's done right. I HIGHLY recommend. Everyone was super helpful and I won't hesitate to use them again in the future.

I am so glad that Jose Torres Roofing responded to my quote request! I got the absolute best value for my money and excellent quality workmanship. Jose and his brother Alex are honest, knowledgeable and professional. They worked very hard to complete the project in the promised time frame. They kept the area clean and kept us well informed of the progress, with pictures before and after completion. (I wasn't climbing up a ladder to look!) I am confident in the labor warranty of three years and 20 year warranty on the membrane. I know that if I have any concerns Jose will take are of them!
