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.

I would highly recommend Techo Roofing! First off, he was extremely responsive to my questions. He was on time for our initial review of my roofing issue and explained exactly what needed to be done. He was great in his pricing. And for the day we committed to, he arrived and completed the job in excellent fashion! Definitely hire Techo for your roofing needs!

Had a shake roof that needed to be torn off, resheeted and roofed. They had it done in 2 days. Very impressed with their team and the professionalism. The project manager called every day and gave updates. The team cleaned up every day like they weren't even there. I will be sending referrals their way and using them for all my future projects. They also I stalled new gutters. Looks sharp. Thanks

My experience with Clayton Smith was very positive. I had two vents in my roof that were leaking into my bathroom. He did a great job of cleaning and replacing the vents & covers. I'm hoping he'll be back next month to help me with a couple more roof upgrades. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who needs work done and at a reasonable price.

After reviewing roofing companies I chose NP Exteriors as my company based on the contact and concern they presented during the bidding process. Their customer service is truly unequalled. As with most projects, they came across additional problems while inspecting and re-roofing my mothers home (1600sqft). Each obstacle was reported right away and well articulated as to why it was a problem. They never slowed down despite my old house and the challenges presented. From beginning to end, service and product were top notch. Very, very pleased with the results. More than anything, the leaky roof had left my elderly mother frustrated and worried about her home. They removed all concern upon first contact and treated her with respect and professionalism throughout. You can not go wrong with Northern Pacific Exteriors. -Happy in Renton

Diego was great! He promptly evaluated our roof issues and clearly provided potential solutions. Once we agreed to the scope of work, he was able to fit us in immediately at a reasonable cost. I highly recommend DandC service.

This team handled my roofing project with professional but also personal results. The work was high quality and the site was carefully cleared of all extra materials and construction debris (a complaint I typically have to bring up with others) They're great to work with.

Brian arrived at my house on time, as scheduled. He quoted me a fair price for the job (repair of a vent on my roof), and was able to do the work on the spot. He was courteous, professional, and informative. I would hire him again if a need arises and the price is right.

Best pricing we received for roof repair. Hector was also the only person to point out several errors in the original installation. For the amount of time his three man crew spent on the project, along with the quality of the finished product, we felt we got a bargain.

Paul was great to work with. He was very open with communication and really took the time to answer all of my questions, helping me understand what was need for my roof. They even moved my project up in their schedule and got done quicker than planned. Highly recommend this team for your project.

I had some repairs I needed to get done in response to a home inspection. Hector was available same day, and even followed up with me to make sure the leak was gone. He came out again when I identified another area that needed some attention. He is very knowledgeable about roofing, and I trust his work enough to hire him again if I wasn't moving.

Diego is an honest and very nice business man. I reached out to him for a quote and from the get go he was very responsive and prompt and had the best value to offer. He did all the work he said he would on our roof and we were very satisfied. Through the process he also brought our attention to some things that had been missed by others and he helped to correct them. We were so pleased that we also hired him for a deck job right after!
