Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When is the best time to replace or install a new roof in Seattle?

Consider replacing your roof in the winter. Winters in Seattle tend to be mild, so temperatures will not usually interfere with your roof replacement. Also, roofing projects slow down quite a bit in the winter, reports the Seattle Times, so there’s a good chance you will get a better price. 

Contact the best roofing contractors in Seattle to figure out when to schedule your roofing project and to get free esitmates.

Does adding a new roof increase home values in Seattle?

If you’re replacing your roof in Seattle, you might get a great return on your investment when it comes time to sell your home. The Remodeling Impact report found that home sellers recouped 107% of the value or cost of adding new roofing.

Installing or repairing a roof can improve your home’s curb appeal and appeal heavily to buyers. Ask your realtor or a real estate expert for tips on what type of roofing you should have on your home. And contact Seattle’s best roofers to help you get the job done.

What type of roof is best for Seattle weather?

Clay tile roofs are considered the best type of roof for water quality. Slate is a slightly more expensive option that is popular on schools, universities and high-end residential homes. Asphalt shingles are popular in Seattle; however, they’re not the most durable roofing material. You might also see Seattle homes with rubber, composition shingles, metal, slate and tile roofs. 

Contact Seattle’s best roofers to determine which material is the perfect match for your home (and budget). 

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 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 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. 

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

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)

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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

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.

I was very impressed with the roof repair that Brian Treece of B & M construction did for my husband and I. He was friendly, full of common sense, and timely. He gave us information we needed to repair the roof and to decide when to replace it. He kept us informed as to what he was doing when, and I felt I could rely on him. I trusted the company and recommend this company to anyone needing roof repairs or other work. Lynn Keat

Junior responded to my request within 10 minutes and said he could be here within the hour to look at my small roof leak in this 7-unit condominium, to determine what was needed, and provide an estimate. He was here in 45 minutes. He spent solid time on the roof looking and taking pictures. Roof leaks are notorious n their difficulty to actually find the source, especially in my case, since there is no crawl space in my 3rd floor, 20ft vaulted ceiling. We decided on a graduated approach, first sealing a series of roofing nails that appeared to be suspiciouson the same day. If that doesn't take care of it, we have another plan and next step set up. Very fair arrangement and good solid approach. In the meantime he took other pictures showing that the roof needs to be cleaned as well as the gutters and will send me an estimate on those. Knowledgeable and responsive. Thank you, Junior.
