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 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. 

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.

Joe came to look at our leaky roof on a Sunday, and had it fixed by Monday afternoon. Our ridge vent needed replacing, and Joe gave us a couple of options to repair it since our roof is getting older. Straightforward materials price and an extremely reasonable fee considering how fast it was done. I'll definitely be asking Joe to replace our entire roof in the near future. I'd highly recommend him!

Joe is awesome. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a roofer. Not only did he give us a fantastic price for our roofing repairs, but he did a great job, and came out to do the job right away. The work he did on our roof helped us to sell our house. Thank you so much Joe. I will recommend you to anyone looking to get work done on their roof.

I had two other contractors attempt to fix a roof leak. I need to replace the roof but I wanted to wait until spring. Martin actually fixed it right and it has stayed dry through a couple of months of heavy rains. Very reasonable price too.

I would highly recommend Four Leaf for roofing needs. Joe was very responsive and he patiently answered all my many questions via text, phone and in person. He was the only contractor that explained why he uses the shingles he does and how they are superior to the other brands. We had a leaky roof and Joe made us priority and got our order in right away and the roof was done within a week of signing and paying the deposit. The crew that did the roof were all very friendly and also answered all of my questions that I had throughout the day. They were able to do a full scrape off and reshingle in one day and the roof looks great. They did a good job of cleaning up all the debris off the ground too. Joe quoted a fair price and even gave us a discount for being a rugby playing family!

Rescue My Roof gave me the best bid out of the 5 contractors that reached out. They did superior work and left my yard and roof looking spectacular. They even went the extra mile of cutting down stray tree branches, removing an unused antenna, and installing a bathroom exhaust vent. Fantastic Job!

They did an excellent job on my garage roof and they were very clean on the exterior. I didn't find any debris around the garage. Also, the price was what I expected for a quality job. I got 6 quotes: two quotes seemed WAY too low and three quotes seemed WAY too high. My only gripe is that they said they would do the roof Wednesday or Friday. They delivered the shingles on Wednesday then came to do the work on Thursday. Not really a big deal, but debris fell through the gaps of the roof (wood slat roof with 1/4" gap between) onto all my stuff in the garage. If I had known they were coming Thursday then I would have thrown tarps over stuff on Wednesday evening.

My mother is having a lot of problems with her roof. We reached out to Joe and he responded immediately . He is an extremely knowledgeable professional who explained the condition of the roof very clearly and gave us options to find the best way to make the repairs. So reassuring to know that when we are ready to move forward Joe will be there to get it done.

I am very pleased with the services I received from Rescue My Roof. From the initial meeting with Chris to discuss my roofing & other projects done ‘way up there’ on my roof, to the final meeting with Ken for the final check was exceptional. After meeting with other contractors, I decided on Rescue My Roof for a few reasons. Cost being the number one factor, not only was the quality of the shingles used top notch in the category, but they also repaired my crumbling chimney with a permanent fix they also installed gutter guards. Their price was the lowest by far for the job. Other contractors were much more expensive, and when I told these contractors about the lower bid from Rescue My Roof, that’s when they submitted lower bids. I asked myself “Why didn’t they offer that bid at the start?”, and the answer was is they were trying to squeeze me for every penny they could get. In my opinion, that’s a warning sign for being nickled & dimed throughout the project. When they started on my roof, the workers were very cordial, quiet (as roofers could be), and cleaned up after themselves very well. No scraps or nails were found anywhere on my property. That was a huge plus because no one wants to drive over a stray nail or discover one when walking around the yard. Chris & Ken told me from the start that I wouldn’t have to pay the balance until I was 100% satisfied with the job they did, and they were good on that promise. We did a final walk around, I pointed out a couple of concerns, and they were ether brought up to my standards, or an explanation (not an excuse) was given for my nearly 100-year-old home. 100% satisfaction! My new roof looks great as well. I’ve received many compliments from neighbors, and I am very pleased with the results. From start to finish, Rescue My Roof was top notch, and would refer them to anyone looking for a new roof.
