About our Shingle Roof Repair services
Since you’ve discovered this page, you might be wondering if your shingle roof is repairable, or you're looking for someone to repair it. Or maybe you are considering doing the work yourself.
What Are The Main Reasons a Shingle Roof Leaks?
Roof repairs for leaks are the biggest reason people in Allerton, IA call us. Sometimes it's just the flashing or some ridge cap that's come loose, and some caulking or a few shingles will set everything right. Sometimes there's missing shingle tabs that have torn off from the wind, which can expose nails or open a crack which leads to a leaky roof. Hail is also a common cause of leaky roofs in Iowa. A leak that has been there for a while may have caused further hidden damage, which you will need to take into consideration as well. The longer you wait, the more likely it will become that this one little leak will spread and destroy your home, quite literally.
Can You Repair Your Leaking Shingle Roof?
If the problem is some missing flashing or something a bit of caulk can seal up, then yes you may be able to fix it yourself. You need to determine if there is other hidden damage you're just covering up though. If wind ripped a piece of flashing aside, and it's been raining and saturating the decking, rafters, insulation, and going down into a wall, you could have thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars' worth of damage you can't see. This would make an insurance claim worthwhile. If you're not sure, call us at 515-305-3253 and we'd be happy to come take a look.
Missing Shingles and Wind Damage
When there's more than a handful of shingles missing, it's more complicated to repair. if your roof is under a decade old, you might be able to order enough shingles to make the repair. You would have to remove the shingles about the damaged ones, replace them with the new shingles and seal everything back up properly. There's a possibility that you could damage even more shingles while attempting to replace them however, they could be worn, torn or simply frail from age. The best thing you can do is to have us come and take a look for you, we can evaluate your roof and give you an accurate and fair estimate, which you can then turn into your insurance company. Call us at 515-305-3253 for expert roofing skills and advice.
Shingle Roof Repair Examples
Here are some examples of things that look like a simple repair, but aren't.
Hail Damage in Allerton, Iowa
If you have hail damage, especially if it's bad enough to cause leaks, you will need a new roof 99% of the time. Some hail hits are obvious, and others are tough to see even with years of experience. We are trained to spot hail damage, we can give you a storm report for your address to back it up, and an estimate to send to your insurance carrier. Allerton, Iowa, 50008 has been hit by hail many times in the past few years, so call Cook Roofing Company for a free roof evaluation and estimate. If it's an insurance claim, you'll only be out your deductible, and we can finance that.
How Much Does a New Roof Cost?
As the case is when shopping for any product, it depends on your needs. If the elements caused the leak, (providing your insurance covers storm damage) more than likely all you'll be responsible for is a deductible. We do offer financing (even though we'd love to waive your deductible, that would be illegal. Beware of any roofing company who offers this, because it's insurance fraud). A free roof inspection is the first step, and there's no obligation. Minor repairs may be even less than your deductible and there'd be no need to file a claim. If you leave a leak neglected however, you can wind up with extensive hidden damage that isn't covered by insurance because you waited too long. It's better to find out the extent of the damage so we can stop it, and see if insurance will cover it, than just procrastinating. Please give us a call or contact us by email.
How Many Roof Repair Estimates Should You Get?
Well, ask yourself why you need to get multiple estimates. Cook Roofing Company will provide you with a thorough estimate and back our work with a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty - something practically unheard of in other 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 generally do the work for what the insurance company pays, plus the deductible, which we can finance. The exceptions to this would be for upgrades you want (like premium shingles, metal roof, high end craftsman windows, etc), or for things that weren't covered (such as 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 looks amazing, is installed right, will last, and is backed by the industry's best warranty, our number is 515-305-3253.
