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.

Great price and great work. Hired JP for two other jobs after having our roof replace. Will recommend JP's Exteriors for every roofing job.

Master Pro services installed a TPO roof on my home. They provided me with photos at every stage of the installation. They were able to remove and install a new roof in one day. I am very satisfied with the professionalism and quality of work done on my home. I received 3 other quotes for my roof and master pro services provided a fair estimate, on time installation.

Tim was always quick to respond, and communication was open / effective. The crew showed up on time, and did a very good job with the roof, and a couple of small follow up asks from me. All in all, I was very happy with Ridgeline Roofing!

We had an out-building with a leaking roof. We decided to have the old shingles removed and get new ones put up when repairs were done. A-Plus came out and inspected the attic space to assess the damage. They submitted a detailed proposal with a very fair price. They said they could get to it in about 2 weeks and, even though we had a lot of rain those 2 weeks, they were able to meet the schedule. The roof is beautiful! We had a relatively small project but they treated it the same as a large one. I'll definitely go straight to them next time I need a roofing contractor.

Great company to work with. They did an amazing job on the replacement of the roof on my house and my shed in the backyard, especially considering the roof on my house was very old and had major water damage to the boards. Their communication was great and they kept me updated through the whole process. Would definitely recommend their services to anyone looking for a good company who will not only get the job done quick but efficiently.

Amazing communication and quick. Jeff definitely knows his business and craft. He was resourceful when it came to finding the specialty tongue and groove wood needed for the project. He also was clear about the contract and additional needs once the former roof was removed. No surprises with this guy! Down to earth, honest, and clearly enjoys his work.

Had a great experience with Christian and the crew from 4 Seasons - called on a Monday, after a weekend of heavy rains, on a leaking roof around my chimney. With more rain in the forecast, Christian managed to get the estimate done same-day, with the work completed less than 48 hours later. Can’t recommend them enough.

The roof itself turned out well. I did have to get the guys to come back and clean up debris that fell over a nearby fence and the crew wasn't told to install a ridge vent. When they returned, they took care of everything. Unfortunately, the guys were oblivious to the barriers that I put up around a garden to keep them from trampling the flowers.
