About our Roof Repair services

Leaking Roof Repair

Repairs for a leaky roof is the biggest reason people in Roby, Texas call us. In some cases it's just flashing or some ridge cap that has become loose, and some caulking or a few shingles will fix it. A leak that has been there for longer however may have developed further hidden damage, and the longer you wait to get it fixed, the worse the leak will get. A roof leak alone can ruin an otherwise perfectly fine home. The best thing to do is to call us out to fix your leaking roof. Depending on the cause of the damage, it may be covered by insurance and we can help you figure out if it's something that might be covered (depending on your insurance carrier of course). For roof repair in Roby, TX, call Cook Roofing Company at 806-424-4541.

Bent or Missing Metal Roof Flashing

Maybe some roof flashing was blown out of place. Flashing is generally nailed up under siding or shingles, and sometimes you have to disturb/move a lot of other siding and roofing material to get to the flashing. Just paying for a piece of flashing and an hour of roofing labor isn't going to cover what really needs to be done. With our experience from over 30 years of looking at roof damage and repairing and replacing roofs in Roby, TX, 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.

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.

Hail Damaged Roof Repair

Unlike with wind damage, roof repairs for hail damage are rarely possible without needing a full roof replacement. It often takes an experienced and honest roof specialist, like the ones at Cook Roofing Company, to determine if you have hail damage. If you're in Roby, you really need to call us for a professional roof evaluation to determine the reparability of the damage. We can pull storm reports that pinpoint hail storms, and if there is hail damage to your roof, we will find it. Sometimes, the damage only appears to be to soft metal like vents or gutters, and insurance adjusters don't see the damage to the rest of the roof. Our Roof Repair specialists at Cook Roofing Company 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 Roby, TX, call 806-424-4541 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  Roby, you should call us today at 806-424-4541.

FAQ

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.
Can a shingle roof be repaired?
Shingle roofs can be repaired under some circumstances. Shingle roof repair requires lifting the shingles higher up on the roof, above the damaged shingles, enough to be able to remove the damaged ones, and nail on new shingles. If the roof is new, the shingles are likely pliable enough to be able to bend enough for the repair without breaking. On a roof that is more than a few years old though, this might not be the case. Near the ridge, the other shingles can just be replaced too. Other issues with shingle repair is that the underlayment will have holes in it, and the new shingles may not match. If you have a lot of damaged shingles, you may be eligible for a roof replacement, even if your insurance adjuster didn't approve that the first time. Adjusters get this wrong more often than not, trying to save the insurance company money. Get a second opinion from a reliable roofing contractor who will give an experienced assessment and write a thorough estimate. Then the insurance adjuster can come back and do a re-inspection.
Can you seal a metal roof with caulking?
Yes, you can seal a metal roof with caulking. But it's only a temporary fix, and it will make a roof replacement later cost more, because it makes the whole thing much more difficult to remove. If you don't really know what you're doing, you can create more problems on your roof in the process. We've seen some pretty bad instances of these caulking roof repairs. Sometimes you just trap moisture, and don't get it sealed 100%, so water still gets in. Then what you have is a mess. It's worth a little extra expense, and a lot more peace of mind, to have a professional roofing company come out and seal your roof for you, after checking it first.
