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 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 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. 

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 were extremely happy with the service and quality of work performed by Hector Alvarez and his employees. Hector installed an aluminum shingle roof for us, including new sheathing. He gave us excellent advice about products and techniques to ensure our roof lasts a long time. His pricing was very competitive for the level of service. Hector and his crew showed up when promised and put the roof on completely within schedule. Thank you Hector! I would hire him again in a second, except that my new roof is going to last for decades so I don't expect to need a roofing contractor :)

Contacted several contractors at Thumbtack and got some responses and estimates. US Roof Care provided the reasonable rate with detailed information about the work descriptions which made me feel very helpful. The communication was efficient and pleasant. we didn't feel inconvenient, though we couldn't present on site because we just relocated to another state. Everything went smoothly and we were happy to hire a professional roofing contractor. We unluckily experienced bad weather-rain, but we were guaranteed without any trouble. Thanks US Roof Care did the hard work, finished the roof as a high quality project. We were satisfied. We appreciated a lot that they did extra works for us without mentioning any extra charges. Also the US Roof Care provided 20 years labor warranty which meant confident and hassle free! I highly recommend US Roof Care for your roofing needs!

Once I accepted the bid the workers arrived to replace the old roof within days. All the guys worked together. Not a bit of mess during or after the job was completed. An extra benefit Scott let me know about was an offer from the roofing material company. A $250 Visa card for veterans from the roofing material company. Very satisfied with this company.

November 2016: Brian is very responsive despite bad weather and heavy schedule. He will be tarping our sister-in-law's roof as a temporary fix while she arranges funding. His inspection and description of what is wrong with the roof is excellent.

We hired Brian from B&M Construction for roof repair work. In offering a repair, he bought us some time to save up for a full roof replacement. He does great work, and doesn’t try to sell you more than you need. We will use him in the future.

I had a shed roof redone because another contractor I hired from Thumbtack last year did not do a good job on it, and then went MIA when I tried to contact him about it. Alex came to the rescue and did a tremendous job. He used the right type of roofing for the type of roof (TPO), with a much more appealing color than the old job. (Sky blue is not a good roof color. Bronze is.) It was also much more professionally applied and I can tell it won't come up in the next wind storm. Alex also repaired the soffits and took out some rotted wood which I'd added on to the project, but what a difference it made. I think the main thing I really appreciated was the professional attitude Alex had toward the job. He wanted to be sure I was happy with the finished product but not only that, to keep the lines open for future communications if ever I had any concerns or issues with the project. I don't think I will have any concerns, but it's that open communication that lays the ground work for future business, which to me is worth a lot. That's why Alex is hired and highly recommended, and my former contractor is so fired.
