Cara I. says, "Elmer of Blue Stone Roofing (BSRC) and his crew impressed us in every way that matters on a project like this: - organization, communication, clarity and detail in every interaction while reviewing the project scope and expectations (thank you, Elizabeth! - BSRC’s Business Manger) - patience and diligence with every walk-through - every project scope conversation was promptly translated into a revised proposal and adjusted rate removing any possibility for a misunderstanding - alternative options were offered respectfully (and helpfully) whenever our aspirations proved unrealistic (timelines, color, texture , etc) - change orders became necessary as wood rot was found on a couple of places when the old siding was removed. Blue Stone Roofing’s clear notes, pictures and documentation left no doubt as to the need to address the issues and the cost of repairs. - Since we kept adding to the original scope, the price was higher in the end for all the right reasons and still an excellent value. - the crew clearly had a well-structured work cadence where no one ever stood idle and everyone had a partner for the dangerous tasks - way up high on a ladder with both hands holding power tools! The guys clearly liked and trusted each other which made the work go smoothly, swiftly and cheerfully. - Safety guidelines were an obvious consideration and the crew’s equipment, safety harnesses, etc. - top notch. One winter later, the siding looks exactly as it did on the day they left. Thank you for your excellent work!"See more

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 happens during a roofing inspection?

Roof inspectors are trained to look for signs of a failing roofing system that could lead to damage — especially water and structural damage. Your home's roofing materials may look great from the ground, but it's difficult to see potential damage unless you take a closer look. A roof inspector can do just that.

During an inspection, the professional will typically look for issues that may have occurred during installation and manufacturing. They’ll also keep an eye out for damage caused by normal wear and tear, as well as extreme weather events. They might also access your attic to see if there are signs of a leak in your roof.

Here’s a short list of common things a contractor will look out for during a roof inspection: 

  • Damage caused by hail, wind, snow and rain
  • Missing, broken, buckling, curling or cracked shingles 
  • Roof decay, rot, moss, mildew and mold
  • Rust around the flashing
  • Damaged chimneys and vents
  • Holes, gaps and punctures that could cause a roof leak
  • Water stains and ventilation issues

Hiring a roofing inspector prevents you from having to do the dangerous work of climbing onto your roof. Plus, inspectors know how to assess potential damage and determine the best way to repair your roof and prevent the need for more expensive repairs in the future. Start searching for a roof inspector on Thumbtack today.

When should I get my roof inspected?

Experts typically recommend that you have your roof professionally inspected at least once a year. But you also may want a licensed professional to inspect your roof during these circumstances: 

  • You're buying or selling a home
  • You're filing an insurance claim
  • Before or after a contractor does major work on your roof

Search the Thumbtack site for experienced roof inspectors near you. You can contact them directly to set up a time to conduct the inspection, and learn more about their pricing structure and services.
