About our Roof Repair services

Leaking Roof Repair

Roof repairs for leaks are the biggest reason people in Joplin, Missouri, 64801 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).

How Roof Repair 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 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.

How Much Does Roof Repair Cost?

It really depends on what the damage causing the leak is. If it's something simple, like some caulking around a pipe flashing, the repair could be very cheap. If the leak is a part of the roof that requires more of the roof to be fixed or replaced than just the place where the leak is, it can be more expensive. If, on the other hand, there is storm damage causing the leak, it might be covered by insurance. In that case, your only cost would be your deductible, and we do offer deductible financing (we'd love to waive your deductible, but that would be illegal. Beware of any roofing company who offers this, because it's insurance fraud). A free roof inspection would be the first step in determining cost of the repairs.

Roof Repair Examples

Here are some examples of things that look like a simple repair, but aren't.

Roof Repair for Hail Damage

While wind damage may be localized, hail damage usually affects the entire roof. Spotting hail damage takes a trained specialist, because sometimes it's not immediately visible. We have storm history down to the address, to support the hail damage.  If you're in Joplin, Missouri, 64801, you really need to call Cook Roofing Company for a professional roof inspection.  If there is hail damage to your roof, Cook Roofing Company will find it. Sometimes, insurance adjusters don't see damage on the shingles even when there is damage vents, gutters, and flashings. Our roofers are trained to spot indicators of hail damage. We will provide you with an estimate for your insurance, along with justification for full roof replacement if it's needed. You can trust the professionals from Cook Roofing Company to provide an insurance-compliant and thorough estimate based on our decades of experience. No matter the extent of the repairs you need in Joplin, MO, call us at 417-815-6725 today.

Missing Shingles From Wind Damage

Maybe the wind blew a few shingle tabs off. Sometimes, on a newer roof, it's possible to lift the shingles above them 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. Often, though, the shingles are old and worn, the other shingles don't pull aside easily and instead they tear or break, etc. And if water was getting in, the plywood decking may be waterlogged or even starting to delaminate and rot. It may be that other shingles were blown loose also, to the point that there would be too many shingles to replace. A good roofing company would be unlikely to guarantee your roof won't leak if they just turn your roof into a patchwork of repairs. In many cases, insurance will buy these roofs after a second inspection. Cook Roofing Company will evaluate your roof to verify that the leaks are coming from this damage, and whether or not the roof is repairable or needs to be replaced, regardless of what the insurance adjuster said. They are rarely roof experts, but they're experts at saving money for the insurance company. If you're in  Joplin, Missouri, 64801, you should call us today at 417-815-6725.

FAQ

Can hail damage on shingles be repaired?
If your shingle roof has hail damage, there will be uniform damage across slopes facing the direction the wind came from during the storm, at a minimum. Sometimes adjusters will try to say that only a few shingles were damaged, and a shingle repair is good enough. That's almost never true, they're just unable to recognize the damage or they're trying to save money. If you only have one slope that is badly damaged, there may be other reasons that the rest of the roof needs to be replaced, too. Find a roofing contractor who will come out and accurately evaluate your roof - roof inspections are usually free - and make sure that the insurance company gives you enough money to properly fix your roof.
How much does it cost to repair a roof?
Roof repair cost can range from a few hundred dollars, to many thousands or more, depending on what needs to be done. Be careful about paying someone $50 to go slap some silicone on a crack in your roof, though, because there's a good chance there's damage beneath it, and all you're doing is creating a much more expensive problem for later.
Can you repair a roof yourself?
People repair their own roofs all the time. You just need to keep in mind a few things. Most people do not know how to find a roof leak. They do not know what's under their shingles or metal, or how to tell if there is water damage to the structures underneath. Plus, the reason that roofing is one of the most dangerous construction occupations is because experienced roofers fall all the time. So, with some education, some safety equipment when it's called for, and a lot of precaution, there's nothing magical a roofer can do, that you can't. The real question is whether all of that is worth the risk, effort, and time for you. How much is your time worth, how confident are you of being able to do it right, and how much risk are you willing to accept? Financing is often available with the better roofing companies. At the very least, you should ask a reputable roofer to come out and give you a free roof evaluation. Tell them you think you'd like to do the repairs yourself. Most will explain what's needed, but it will be up to you to do it. Some roofers might charge a small fee for this service, but the custom advice will be well worth it.
