Roof replacement is the core of our business. We have replaced hundreds of roofs in your area. We can take care of yours. 

Sometimes you don’t need a full roof replacement, but just repairs. A lot of local roofers nearby seem all too eager to just patch your roof, though.  Let’s evaluate your roof and see how we can help. Just because insurance said no damage, or didn’t pay enough for the whole roof, doesn’t mean that’s the end of the story. Call us.

The midwest gets hit by a lot of severe thunderstorms complete with wind, hail, tornadoes, and torrential rain. Whether minor or severe, we have the experience to restore your home after storm damage. A lot of local roofing companies – and even insurance adjusters – don’t always see all the damage at first. We do, and we have extensive experience working with insurance claims. Read how we’ve helped your neighbors…

When disaster strikes, you need a contractor you can trust – not one who just wants to slap on a few shingles for whatever money the insurance company first offered you. Cook Roofing Co understands that’s just their first offer, and understands how to spot, assess, and document repairs needed to restore your property fully. That’s better than a shingle patch or a little paint to cover the hidden mildew, wouldn’t you agree? Here’s what you need to know about insurance claims…

Most of the local roofing work we do is replacing asphalt shingle roofing. Find out all about shingle roofs here.

Do you want to stand out from your neighbors? An upgraded roof is one of the best investments you can make for your home, and will really set it apart from the crowd. Here are several options…

One of the most durable investments you can make in your home is a standing seam metal roof. It may be more affordable than you think… Lately we’ve been called out on quite a few metal roofs in Springfield Mo that were not installed correctly. Sometimes the repair is costly, and insurance rarely pays for a bad installation. Metal roofs are a major investment, and you want it done right. That’s why you need to call us, we’re a metal roofing installation company that knows how to do it right the first time.

Spanish barrel and terracotta tile, concrete S tile, slate, and metal or synthetic tile roofs all have an elegant look and outstanding strength. Find out more about these options…

Not all damage is severe enough to be visible from the ground. If your roof is more than 7 years old, you should have it checked. We recently just did a roof in Springfield that was only one year old, but hail damaged it again. Two adjusters looked at it before us and said it was fine. After consulting with us, they saw the damage and insurance paid for the roof. Again. Read what you should be aware of here…

You pay for insurance, and now you have a claim. Insurance companies are some of the most profitable businesses there are, and some pay their employees bonuses for saving money on claims.

  • How do I get the best price on a new roof?

    8 Tips For Getting The Best Roof

    1. Get an inspection from an experienced roofing contractor.
    2. Find out if the roof can be repaired or must be replaced.
    3. Determine if there's an insurance or warranty claim.
    4. If you're not sure about the competence of your roofer, get another estimate.
    5. Make sure the roofer warranties their work.
    6. Make sure the roofer has liability insurance.
    7. Insist on all needed materials for the selected roof type.
    8. Ask if your preferred roofer will price match equivalent  estimates.

  • What are the types of roofing?

    Here are the most common types of roofing in Missouri:

    • Asphalt shingles
    • Standing seam metal roofing
    • R Panel metal roofing (agricultural panel)
    • Metal shingles
    • Stone coated steel
    • Slate
    • Clay or concrete tiles
    • Synthetic tiles
    • Single ply or built up roofing (for flat and low slope roofs)

  • How much does it cost to tear off and replace a roof?

    For smaller, simple, non-steep roofs, you can expect to pay anywhere from about $6,000 to $9,000 for a simple asphalt shingle roof replacement. For smaller, steep or cut-up roofs, it can range from $10,000 to $16,000 or more, depending on the size, etc. Large roofs, or premium shingles, can cost upwards of $25,000-$45,000. If a roofer quotes much less than that, you should question the quality.

  • How do I estimate roofing costs?

    Things that go into an estimate for roofing costs:

    Materials (underlayment, flashing, edge, ridge, roofing materials including waste, ventilation, consumables)

    Safety considerations (ladder, rigging, harnesses, lifts, etc - roofing is one of the most dangerous occupations there is)

    Labor (skilled labor is generally half of the estimate or more)

    Permits, insurance, contractor's license, delivery, dump fees, supervision, warranty

  • How can I get my insurance to pay for my roof?

    Steps to Get Your Property Insurance to Pay for a New Roof

    1. Verify damage. A good roofing contractor will give a free inspection and recommend action. If there is damage:
    2. Contact your agent to file a claim. 
    3. Have your roofer meet the insurance adjuster onsite.
    4. If insurance denies or underpays legitimate repair for covered damage, ask for a reinspection.
    5. If there is still a discrepancy, appraisal and/or a public adjuster are additional options available to the insured.

  • What is the best time of year to get a new roof?

    A roof can be installed any time of year in Missouri, but snow and extreme cold weather complicates matters (it's not impossible, there are ways to warm the roof). Spring and early summer are the best, providing that a major hailstorm hasn't just hit the area (driving up roofing demand). Labor and materials tend to go up later in the summer and fall, due to storm damage and hurricane season causing more demand.

  • Can I put a metal roof over shingles?

    Sometimes. If local building codes allow it, and if your old roof isn't trapping moisture. Some building codes require a full tear-off whenever a new roof is installed. 

  • Is a metal roof worth the cost?

    A metal roof costs two to three times the price of a shingle roof, but will last 50 years or more. A shingle roof typically only lasts 12-15 years. They also can save up to 50% of energy costs. A standing seam metal roof in particular may increase the value and curb appeal of your home.

  • Do metal roofs make a house hotter?

    No, metal roofs tend to reflect the sun's heat and can be as much as 100 degrees cooler on the surface, compared to an asphalt shingle roof. This can lead to energy savings of as much as 50% according to the MRCA. 

  • How much does a metal roof cost?

    A metal roof costs 2 to 3 times as much as a shingle roof. Specific roofs vary due to shape and access, but installation is typically around $900 - $1100 per square, plus the cost of tear-off and disposal of the old roof. Ask your contractor for a no-obligation, custom, detailed estimate for your specific house or building.
