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.

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.

Jaime and Harry are consummate professionals. Harry is a superb account executive - he explains roofing mechanics and materials in thorough detail and presents why his team’s capabilities will fit with your desired project. Jaime and his team delivered excellent service on a low angled roof and the United Roofing team handled the complete reinstallation with great expertise. They stripped out an older torch down roof with efficiency and applied a beautiful TPO. Our house also had an addition with a higher angle roof with shingling so their team switched gears and upgraded the composition roof with extremely durable material. These guys really care and that’s why we appreciate them. They were upfront about every cost and they came out several times to fine tune parts of the roof to our liking and more importantly, the house’s safety. Trusting your roof work to someone is a big deal and we’re glad we chose Jaime and Harry.

I did not hire LLC for the roof because I determined they were better at a few other none roof issues with the house. I liked their solution for those.

Jonathan and his crew did a fantastic job on my roof. They were extremely professional and hardworking. They were able to quickly fix broken and rotting facia boards and install new gutters once the roof was completed as well. I highly recommend them for any roof related project.

I had an excellent experience with US roof care. He diagnosed a minor leakage problem in our roof very quickly and promptly applied the appropriate fix. He was very friendly, and did not try to upsell and recommend unnecessary work. I would highly recommend US Roof Care.

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.

The guys came right on time (a few minutes early even). The work was all explained to me and understood why and how everything was done. They found all the spots on our roof that needed to be repaired saving us the headache and cost of a full roof repair.

Rafael is extremely professional on the roofing problem I had. He educated me a lot about roofing and had way faster turn around time than other contractors. The time from he came to my house for quote to when he fixed it is only 5 days. The price is definitely more competitive than other contractors. I highly recommend Rafael. If I have other roofing problem I will definitely contact Rafael again.

We had a great experience working with United Roofing & More to replace the old shingle roof on our house! We highly recommend them. Harry and Jaime came over the same day we reached out to them. Harry talked us through all the details of the materials and workmanship that goes into a great long-lasting roof, and gave us a primer on how to compare roofing bids. Jaime inspected our old roof and explained his observations on the current condition, no major leaks but slow seeping typical of a roof at the very end of its useful life. They turned around a detailed quote very quickly and encouraged us to take our time to shop around and get in touch when we were ready. We got bids from about 6 different companies and these guys had the best value. We appreciated that they didn't require any down payment in advance, they warranty their work for 10+ years, and they had the best price for the quality of materials we were looking for. They completed our roof in 1 day! It was fun to watch their perfectly coordinated teamwork and attention to detail. Everywhere around the house was amazingly clean and tidy by the time they packed up and headed home. We paid by check about a week later and Harry dropped off our warranty paperwork. The roof has been great and we're looking forward to many decades with it. Thanks for the great communication and great craftsmanship!!

Techo Roofing was great. They identified the apparent problem for our leak, plus a number of other issues. Techo fixed everything for a reasonable price. I will likely call them first in the future for any roofing needs. I’m not always an easy customer but this company made it easy. They absolutely earned this five star.

I didn't have Clayton work on my roofing project, but I was pleased with his quick response and knowledge about flat torch down roofing. He doesn't do flashing or gutters, which I thought was odd considering the price, also his reply came off sounding a bit rude.

I could not be happier with the work that HEIS roofing did. It was high quality, quick and they were very professional. I contacted a few different roofing companies to give me a quote to replace my roof. HEIS was quick to reply and come out and look at my roof. They were very professional and helpful in helping me understand what needed to be done. They had the most competitive quote of all the roofers I got estimates from. They let me know they were busy and it may take a week or two to get me on the schedule but then contacted me to let me know they had a cancellation and were able to come out much sooner. They promised it would be done in 2-3 days but were able to get some extra workers and worked from 7:30 am - 8:30 pm and knocked out the job in a day. It is rare for a contractor to under promise and over deliver. The roof seems to be very well done and has ended all our leaking problems.

Our condo association was looking for a ballpark quote for roof replacement within the next few years. I indicated in my Thumbtack quote request that our need was not immediate, yet I still received a same-day response back from Michael. He came out and performed a very thorough inspection of our roof, gave us his opinion of the remaining life left, and recommended routine maintenance tasks to correct the problems with our caulking joints to ensure that we get the maximum life out of our roof. I was very impressed with his professionalism and willingness to quote a not-immediate need. We are now going to have Sound Pacific perform the much needed joint re-caulking on our roof vents and look forward to working with this company in the future!
