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 Bedford, 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?

Missing Flashing

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.

Wind Damage and Missing Shingles

If you are missing shingles, it's a trickier repair. If your roof is fairly new, 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 disturb for each damaged shingle. Shingle tabs get torn by wind, which is usually insurance covered damage. The safest course is just to have us come out and look. We can tell you whether there's more extensive damage, and whether the roof is repairable. Sometimes the shingles are brittle and just tear or break when you try to lift them. We'll evaluate your roof and give you a free estimate, which you can give to your insurance company if needed. 515-305-3253

Shingle Roof Repair Examples

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

Hail Damage in Bedford, 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. Bedford 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 Expensive is Roofing?

It really depends on what the damage causing the leak is. If storm damage caused the leak, (providing your insurance covers storm damage) then the most you should be responsible for out of pocket is your deductible. We do offer deductible 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 would be the first step in determining cost of the repairs. There's no obligation. Minor repairs may be even less than your deductible and there'd be no need to file a claim, however hidden damage could be very expensive. If you leave a leak neglected though, 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 ignore it or procrastinate. Please give us a call or contact us with the form.

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 Bedford. 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 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.
Can a shingle roof be repaired?
If the damage is minimal, then yes, a shingle roof can be repaired without too much trouble. A properly installed asphalt shingle roof will require very little maintenance. Asphalt shingles can be easy to remove and replace. Because of their low price, and low maintenance, asphalt shingle roofs are the most common type of roof in the US.
