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 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 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 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.

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.

Our experience with Alfonso and HEIS Roofing was to notch! From the written estimate to the completion, Alfonso and his team were very professional. They did our roof in two days! We are so pleased with our new roof!

I would recommend United Brothers Roofing and actually referred someone yesterday. The price for the roof was exceptionally fair. They got me on the schedule relatively quickly, during a very hot, busy season. They fixed some things that the original roof installation overlooked and did it for a small charge. Mac, Jose and Lowren were easy to work with.

Paul did a great job of communicating costs and getting the roof done in a timely manner. Clean up could have been a little more thorough, but happy to have our new roof.

They were great of getting my roof done on time. A little bit of communication problems but we got it resolved before they left. Wish they cleaned up a little bit better than they did since they had to tear the whole roof.

Regal Roofing was great, lucky to acquire them on such a busy storm weekend on such short notice to secure the roof temporarily, prevent further damage. Great friendly customer service, response time was amazing. I would recommend them. I will be requesting a quote for actual repairs next.

EY Contractors contacted us right away, arrived quickly for a free estimate and listened to our needs and concerns. They were patient working with us-as we wanted the work done at a later time-and remembered what we wanted even a couple months later. They communicated when they would show up to deliver materials, and worked through hard pouring rain until the job was done, even despite challenges with access to our roof. Our roof looks beautiful and we are very glad we chose them for this project!

We needed our roof repaired. I vetted 6+ contractors. PNW did the work on time, as promised, for the price quoted, did a great job and cleaned up after themselves. I am having them come out to do some more work.

With these challenging times, Heis roofing was patient and flexible with my requests. I asked if we could do this contact free because we have a high risk family member, and he respected my situation. With using phone calls, texting, and emails we were able to proceed smoothly without sacrificing professionalism. I even was able to mail in a signed contract with deposit to initiate the start of the project. The material arrived earlier then the start date (this showed me Alfonzo’s organization skills) and on the start date,the crew showed up in the morning and started to work without delay. They moved items on my deck to the side and put down cover on my deck. This showed that they respected my property. Each day they would clean up,and when the job was done they left the property better then when they started. This being an older house there was some boards needing replaced and I appreciated the pictures of before and after to keep me in the loop of the much needed repairs. The final walk went quickly and Alfonzo made sure all questions were answered and that I was happy with the end result. With the repairs made the overall price was very reasonable and I will have no problem referring Heis Roofing to my friends, family, and co-workers. Thank you and your crew for all the hard work, professionalism, craftsmanship, and flexibility that made this project a success.
