Roof Leak Repair

Roof repairs for leaks are the biggest reason people call us. Sometimes it’s just flashing or some ridge cap that’s come loose, and some caulking or a few shingles will fix it. But a leak that has been there for a while may have developed other hidden damage. The longer you wait to fix it, the more serious it will get. A leak left alone can eventually destroy a home. The best thing to do is call someone out to see if we can fix that leaking roof. And, depending on what caused it, it may be covered by insurance. We can help you figure out if it’s something that might be covered (coverage will be up to your insurance carrier of course). For residential roof repair, call Cook Roofing Company at 573-400-0307

How Roof Repairs Can Help

Your roof is made up of a variety of smaller components that work together to form a protective system. Maybe all you need is just a localized roof repair, and it would be cost-effective to just do a repair without impacting other areas of the roofing system. A top quality, experienced roofer like Cook Roofing Company can perform a roof inspection that will not only pinpoint where the problem areas are, but will also assess whether the condition of the rest of the roof. If the repair can be made without compromising the roof system, then we’ll be able to tell.

The danger in a repair is that fixing the obvious problem might damage more of the roof, and not address the real issues underlying the damage. So even if insurance has been out and kicked a couple of bucks your way, you want to make sure that the damage is properly repaired. If it is an insurance claim, they owe to fix it right, not just apply a patch job. Too many roofing companies nearby will be all too happy to take some quick cash and slap a couple of shingles and some caulk on your roof. Before you let them, have us out to make sure that’s all that’s needed. Once you’ve done those repairs, it may be too late to get anything more for that claim. If your roof is leaking, it's important to call Cook Roofing Company at 573-400-0307 to assess the issue and stop the damage before any hidden problems get worse.

Missing Shingles Caused by Wind Damage

You wake up in the morning to go walk the dog, and there are shingles on your front lawn. Now what do you do? Well, sometimes on a newer roof, it’s possible to lift the shingles above the damaged ones up. They then remove the rest of the shingle (more than 50% of the damaged shingle is still underneath the one above it), try not to damage the underlayment (felt), nail a new shingle in, and try to keep from tearing other shingles. However, sometimes the shingles are worn and frail, and the others don’t pull aside easily, and tear and break apart. The plywood decking could be rotting and waterlogged and even delaminate as a result. There could even be so many shingles torn off or damaged that a simple repair won't cut it, and the whole roof will have to be replaced in some cases. A good roofing company would be unlikely to guarantee your roof won’t leak if they just make your roof look like a patchwork quilt. In many cases, insurance will buy these roofs after another inspection on them.

Damaged or Bent Metal Roof Flashing

Roof flashing is vital to your roofs integrity, and sometimes it can wriggle loose and be the root cause of a leaking roof. Flashing is generally nailed up under siding or shingles, and sometimes you have to interrupt a lot of other siding and other materials to repair it. Unfortunately taking a little time to just repair the flashing real quick is like putting a band-aid on an injury that needs stitches. With our experience from over 30 years of looking at roof damage and repairing and replacing roofs, we’re one of the best roofing companies nearby to be able to assess what it really takes to repair your leaking roof. And we will gladly meet the insurance adjuster and show them from a roofer’s perspective what really needs to be done to fix your damaged roof the right way.

FAQ

What is a minor roof repair?
Minor roof repairs involve things like replacing ridge vents, applying roof mastic to flashing areas or pipe vents, or sealing popped nails. Replacing a shingle or two on a relatively new roof could be considered minor, but sometimes the shingles tear when trying to lift them for access to the shingle that needs replacing. If you have storm damage and you are unsure whether a repair is possible, a free roof inspection could be a good first step. Sometimes the roof is irreparable, and insurance will pay for a new roof.
How do you stop a leaking roof?
It depends on where your roof is leaking from. The most common locations are at the edges of the roofing material, especially against side and end walls, pipes and vents, skylights, and chimneys. Water tends to run down structural areas in the attic so go uphill on the roof from where the leak inside is. Look for cracks, popped nails, missing shingles, places where the roof edges meet walls or vents, etc. There are sealants and tapes that can be used for temporary fixes, but problem areas should really be re-worked. Caulking and roof cement tends to crack over time and allow more water through.
Can a shingle roof be repaired?
Sometimes a shingle roof can be repaired, if the damage is not too extensive, most of the shingles are in good condition, and the color and style of the shingle is still available. If those situations are not the case, you may need a full replacement. You should consult with a reputable roofing company to determine whether your roof is repairable. Most will offer free inspections and estimates, and will work with your insurance.
