Quality Roofing done Ethically
There are roofers around who just show up, bid low, even promise things like paying your deductible (that’s illegal), just to get your business.

We give a fair and thorough estimate, price match, and know how to work with insurance. We won’t expose you to fraud by paying your deductible, but we can finance your deductible. And we don’t skimp on quality, that’s how we can offer a lifetime workmanship warranty. With an insurance claim, the only money out of pocket is your deductible, so don’t you want the best quality you can get, or do you want the cheapest one? Your roof is one of the best remodeling investments you can make. You want the best roofer in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas to do the job for you. You want Cook Roofing Co.
Hail Storm Damage Claims
Does your roofer have the experience to spot and justify damages and repairs that all but the most experienced adjusters miss? Do they know when the adjuster is trying to cheat you on your estimate, and know how to get legitimately needed repairs paid for?
If you’re going to file a property insurance claim, you should make it count. Let us make sure that all the repairs needed to restore your covered damage are included, so you get your money’s worth from your insurance policy.

screwed cheated out of what you are owed, just because a roofing company wants to make a quick buck.

What is the best time of year to get a new roof?
A roof can be installed any time of year in northern Arkansas, but if there's snow or extreme cold weather it 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 (this drives 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 (and up, for higher end roofs), 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.
