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.

Kyle did a fantastic job installing a metal roof on our garage. He was great about answering all of our questions, alleviating our concerns, and making us feel early on that we made the right choice in choosing him to do the installation. Very pleased with how it turned out. He also was very prompt to come back and make necessary repairs to our house roof. Highly recommended!

We were happy to have both our plumbing and roofing done by the same contractor. He also did other minor repairs that we had on the list. Scheduled the repairs in a quick time frame. Very professional.

JC and his crew did a wonderful job on my roof! JC was in contact with me to let me know when they would be there and what was going on with the issues they found. They were very professional and reasonably priced. I would definitely use them again.

We had a very good experience with OrTinoRS. They were very polite and considerate. They came when they said they would and got the job done in 1 day. It was a big job with 3 layers to tear off. They did everything they said they would in their contract. We are happy with our new roof! Thank you!

Drew did an excellent job communicating with me as to the status of my roofing job, when it was going to happen, the cause of the delays, and how the process was going to go. He helped me work with the insurance company and is still working with the insurance company to finalize this project. I really can't say enough about him and how comfortable he has made me feel about working with a contractor. He was definitely a huge part of the reason I decided to go with this contractor. I was disappointed with the way the crew made a huge mess tearing off the roof, cleaning up the mess, and the fact that they didn't take some of their supplies (1 x 2 boards) back with them. I found razor blades and numerous nails, as well as, cedar shake shingles with nails in them in my driveway and yard. This was disappointing as I was assured that the clean up would be complete.

At first, Phil was very responsive and was able to fix my roof on-site after providing an estimate. A few days after, some rain came through and I saw that the same areas were leaking again. I sent photos to Phil, and they came out a few days later to "fix" the areas. Rained again, no improvement at all. Again, I sent photos of the leakage to Phil, and didn't hear back for a while. I called his number and left message; I also called the office number listed on their website and the man told me he'd call right back from a different line. I never received a phone call. Finally after a few days, and after multiple attempts and asking for a refund, I received a phone call from Phil apologizing saying they'd be able to come out and fix it. That was 6 days ago. Nobody has contacted me to give me a specific time that they will be out to repair the roof. I'm highly disappointed with the unprofessionalism of this company.
