Explore Different Types of Shingle Roofs
Roofing is a big decision. You want to make sure you pick the right one for your home and that it's going to last. That's why we're here! We'll help you find the perfect roof, whether it be metal or asphalt shingle, so that way you can rest easy knowing your house will be protected from leaks and other issues. If your home is on an incline, then metals may come in handy because they're lightweight and durable, but what if your house has flat pitches? That's where having an asphalt shingle can help out! They have plenty of different colors and styles that would match any style of architecture from modern to traditional.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
Asphalt shingles use asphalt for waterproofing Asphalt shingles are among the most used shingle in the US because it has a relatively cheap cost and isn't complicated to install. Their general style is more thick than other shingles and they utilize composition laminated shingle technology, which is a fiberglass mat embedded with an asphalt compound.
3 Tab Shingle Roofs
We specialize in three-tab shingles. They come with a lifetime warranty and are available in many different colors to match your home's exterior. You can have a new roof with three-tab shingles installed without having to replace your entire house! It's perfect if you don't need to upgrade but still want something different from what is on your current roof.
Architectural Shingle Roofs
A less common shingle is the architectural shingle. They have a look similar to wood and the look of laminated composite shingles give your house a welcoming and rustic feel. You can even choose from a wide range of colors for the perfect architectural shingle!
We know that you're looking for ways to protect your roof from hail and other objects, but we also want to make sure you understand what's out there. Impact-resistant shingles can't be totally protected from hail and other objects, so insurance companies won't pay out on these claims if impact-resistant shingles have shielded the roof from an object like a tree branch. Our opinion is your money would be better saved as deductible rather than paying extra for something you may never need; however some local contractors will try their best to sell it anyways!
Wind Rated Shingles
The Wind Rated Shingles are the perfect solution for homeowners who want to protect their home from high winds. They come in a variety of styles and colors, so it’s easy to find one that matches your house perfectly. These shingles have been tested by wind experts and they can withstand up to 150 mph winds without any damage. You don't need to worry about what will happen if a storm hits while you're away because these shingles are strong enough to keep your family safe at all times. But if you're facing a weather event with higher winds than 150 mph, then you have more to worry about than shingle damage!
High Profile, Scalloped, or Other Shingles
The best roof isn't just one that looks great and lasts long- it's also one you can count on in the event of a storm. You deserve to make an informed decision when choosing your shingles, which is why our team has all sorts for you to choose from! L-shaped ones with scallops or slate lookalikes are just some examples of what we have available right now at affordable prices. The key thing though is making sure they're high profile so they'll be able to weather any storms better than most other options out there today.
How Do You Know If Your Shingle Roof Needs To Be Replaced?
If you have not replaced your roof in the past 15-20 years, it may be time. Most asphalt shingles will last between 15-25 years under optimal conditions. If your roof has had a lot of traffic, leaves, hail, or is poorly ventilated, it can wear out much faster. Most of Iowa has experienced 5-10 hail storms just over the past few years, and this tends to prompt roof replacements. Granules fall off, the asphalt becomes brittle and cracks, high winds can rip the mastic (black sticky stuff) seal apart and tear tabs off the shingle - especially on three-tab roofs. Whatever the reason your roof might be worn out, Cook Roofing Company has a plan to meet your needs - including financing. So call us for a free estimate today at 515-305-3253.
Repairing a Shingle Roof on Your Own
If you have a shingle roof, it is important to be aware of your options. If the leak is large and there is significant structural damage, such as buckling or bulging that cannot easily be repaired with patching materials, then replacing the entire roof may be necessary. However, if only one part of the structure needs repair, then this can often simply mean reroofing an affected area instead; these repairs are typically much less expensive and even simple enough to fix yourself if you’re willing to take on the challenge. Again, if the damage is too extensive, then you should call the professionals. But how do you know for sure whether the problem is simple or complicated? Well, you can call Cook Roofing Company today at 515-305-3253 to receive a free evaluation of your roof and exactly how much damage has been caused.
