About our Shingle Roof Repair services

Since you found this page, you're likely wondering if your shingle roof can be repaired, or you're looking for someone to do the repair. Or perhaps you're thinking of attempting the repairs yourself. We'll discuss these issues below.

What Are The Main Causes For A Leaking Shingle Roof?

Roof repairs for leaks are the biggest reason people in Allerton, IA 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. Sometimes there  are missing shingle tabs from wind and it's exposed some nails or opened up a crack that water can get through. Hail is a common problem in Iowa also. A leak that has been there for a while may have developed other hidden damage, so you need to take that into consideration also. The longer you wait to fix it, the more serious it will get. A leak left alone can eventually destroy a home, literally.

Is it Possible To Repair Your Own Shingle Roof?

Missing Flashing

If it's something simple, like a missing piece of flashing, or a new crack that only needs a little caulking to set it right, then maybe. Are you confident that you can tell if the crack has been there for a short time, or if it's been there long enough to saturate the insulation, the decking, the rafters, and down into the walls underneath? if not, then you could just be putting your home at risk for the aforementioned damage to your home. This could cost a small fortune to repair when it's all said and done. It's better to be safe than sorry, call Cook Roofing Company to come out and take a look at your roof, so we can help you clarify what your roof needs, and even assist you in your insurance claim.

Wind Damage and Missing Shingles

If you have a few shingles missing, it's a more complicated repair. If your roof is newer (ten years or so), it may still be possible to lift the shingles above the damaged ones, remove those, replace them, and seal things back up. It's also possible to damage the 6-9 other shingles you'll have to disrupt for each damaged shingle. Shingle tabs get torn by wind, which more often than not insurance will cover. Sometimes shingles are simply frail and damaged from wear and tear. The safest course of action is just to have us come out and inspect your roof, afterwards we'll tell you if there's more extensive damage, and whether the roof is repairable. We'll evaluate your roof and give you a free estimate, which you can give to your insurance company if needed. If you give us a call at 515-305-3253, we can give you our expert advice.

Shingle Roof Repair Examples

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

Does Your Roof Have Hail Damage?

Hail damage is the number one cause of leaking and damaged roofs, and the tricky thing about hail damage is that it is not always so easy to spot. If you suspect a hailstorm may have damaged your roof, let the professionals at Cook Roofing Company take a look. Most of the time, a leaking roof caused by hail will need a total roof replacement, and we can get you a free roof evaluation and estimate. We are trained in finding hail damage and can work with your insurance carrier to get needed repairs covered.

How Much Does a New Roof through Cook Roofing Company Cost?

It all depends on what your roof needs honestly. If bad weather conditions in your area have caused excessive wear and tear on your roof, it's typically only the deductible that you would be responsible for (permitting that your insurance provider overs hail, wind or storm damage). We do provide deductible financing. Beware of any roofing contractor that offers to waive your deductible, it's illegal and could get you into insurance fraud trouble. A roof inspection and estimate through Cook Roofing Company free of charge is the best first step. Small repairs may even cost less than your deductible, which means you might not even need to file a claim with your insurance. Don’t wait too long to call, as we mentioned before, if you let your roof go neglected for too long, it can cause extensive damage to your home which might not be covered by your insurance.

How Many Roof Repair Estimates Should You Get?

Well, ask yourself why you need to get more than one estimate. Cook Roofing Company will provide you with a thorough estimate and back our work with a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty - something rarely given by roofing contractors in Allerton. We match a competitor's estimate, providing it includes everything that needs to be done to guarantee the work. Be warned, though, that other roofers often cut corners and may tell you things like new flashing or drip edge aren't necessary. If the work is an insurance job, we usually do the work for what the insurance covers, plus the deductible, which we can finance. The exceptions to this would be for upgrades you want (such as premium shingles, metal roof, high end craftsman windows, etc), or for things that aren't covered by your insurance (for example a shed roof that wasn't included on your policy). So if all those things are equal, it comes down to who you trust to do the job, who will be around if there are issues, and who backs their work with a warranty. If your goal is get the cheapest roof job you can find, we're the wrong company. But if you want a roof that raises your curb appeal (which adds to the value of your home!), is installed right, will last, and is backed by the industry's best warranty, our number is 515-305-3253.

FAQ

Can you replace only a few shingles?
If the damage to the shingles is not severe, then yes. If it's a substantial leak in your roof, the flashing on your roof under the damaged shingles may also be damaged, and tearing up a few shingles to replace the broken ones may cause more damage to the flashing (which would just prolong the underlying problem). On the other hand, if the damage to the shingle is nothing to sneeze at (such as a tiny crack), you may not even have to replace the shingles; you could just apply a sealant to seal the crack.
Can a shingle roof be patched?
Patching can work out when there isn't that much damage to your shingle roof. However, patchwork won't always solve your problem; a roof is a complicated system designed to protect your home from the elements, and there might be more damage under the shingles that you may not notice on your own. So, call a professional roofing service to, at the very least, evaluate the damage to your roof and recommend whether to use simple patchwork to fix the problem.
What should I do if a few shingles blew off of my roof?
If you see that your roof is missing a few shingles (possibly to a severe storm or simple high winds), you don't have to worry too much; you can just replace the shingles that are missing or a series of shingles. The small downside of this is that the new shingle will stand out compared to the other, probably worn-out, shingles on your roof.
