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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a roofer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a roofer, choose virtual platforms like video chats instead of face-to-face consultations. When the roofer is working on your roof, avoid any physical contact, sanitize all involved spaces and surfaces, and use digital payments instead of cash or a check.

We hired PNW Roofing to do a complete tear off of our old roof and install a new standing seam metal roof. Although there were some unexpected delays in the project, we are very happy with our new roof and it looks great.

My roof was leaking, I contacted another roofing company to fix it, but a few months later it leaked again at one of the 2 locations that I told them about. Ana took better care and actually showed me why the roof was leaking. So far it hasn’t leaked again. Also cleaned the roof and gutter. Better value than that other company!

Alex from Techo roofing did a great job repairing the roof of my shed and for a very fair price. He answered all my questions and provided advise on how to keep my new roof on great shape for many years. Also Alex was very responsive. I inquired on Saturday and he was able to do the work the following Monday. Job got done on one day without any issues. I highly recommend Techo roofing.

Express roofing repaired my flat roof and prevented further structural damage to my house by adding a slant to the roof. They also identified and rebuilt rotted wood framing. The pricing was fair and the work was exceptional. I am planning to use them again for future projects.

We wanted to replace our ugly bay window roof with a metal roof. I found US Roof Care on Thumbtack. Called them and Jhonatan called me right back. He is very responsive. Came out the next day to look at my project. Gave me a bid that afternoon. Said he would be back to do the work and showed up on the day he said he would, finished the work on time and it looks great!!! He even moved a downspout for us at no charge! We will definitely use US Roof when we do our gutter and roof replacement!! Highly recommend!

Our roof was leaking during the strong storm, I messaged Rafael and he responded quickly. He came over the next day and check the roof. He repaired the leak in no time. Fee is so reasonable. PS. I called him again recently as there is roof leak in another area of my house, he came in the next day and fix it without asking for any fee... As in free! Rafael is absolutely amazing. I highly recommend giving him a call for any of your roofing needs!

B&M Construction responded very quickly and we were able to arrange a time to evaluate my roof repair project. They evaluated my roof with me and explained what they saw and how they would approach the repair. Other companies tried to claim I would need to replace my entire roof, but B&M confirmed that a whole new roof was not needed and that repairs were possible and recommended. Was able to schedule repair quickly and were very nice and professional. Very happy with results!

Needed repair of a 14 X 22 feet flat roof. Bryan was outstanding, meticulously tearing off old roofing membrane, replacing two pieces of rotting plywood, and then carefully laying down new TPO roof covering. He had to remove parts of our yard fencing, but was thorough in re-fastening the boards. Bryan cleaned up completely after himself, leaving the roof and yard in spotless condition. He did a great job, explaining what he was doing and providing options along the way.

We have high opinion of this amazing company. Anthony and Carlos team are craftsmen in what they do. They are detailed, thorough and knowledgeable. They are honest in what they do not know. They will be our preferred team for roofing and construction. This is what happened.Our house have a water leak suspected to come from the flat rooftop based on initial moisture reading. Instead of ripping up the TPO/PVC roof without question, this team more thoroughly inspected for roof leakage with more thorough high volume water test, unscrewed lights in the effected area to check for water in the walls and ceiling, and verified the whole there are very very minor leaks, the major leaks were not caused by the roof. And that we should bring in plumber and reach out to our builder before ripping up the TPO. Anthony and Carlos further explained how TPO roofs work, why adding more patches to this roof diminishes its life, and best ways to check and preserved roof life, and prevent future leaks.

My house has a 20+ years roof which required maintenance/repair. Miguel and his team were very responsive and provided me a quote very quickly. They also soon after agreeing on the quote, showed up to fix the roof damages. They finished the job in half day and showed me videos and images of the work they did on my roof. I will hire them again in the future.

Working with Jhonatan on my roof replacement was the right decision! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others looking for roofing installation or repair. He was easy to communicate with, very responsive, and he thoroughly reviewed the end product to ensure it was properly installed. His crew was friendly and accommodated a few special requests and did an excellent job cleaning up after the project. Overall excellent experience with US Roof Care
