About our Shingle Roof Repair services
Are you wondering if your shingle roof can be repaired? Maybe you're looking for someone who can do the repairs for you, or even if you can do the repairs yourself.
Common Causes of Shingle Roof Leaks
Most often, when we get a call for a roof repair it's for a leaking roof. It's usually just some bent flashing or a loose ridge cap, typically some caulk and a few new shingles will do the trick. Hail storms are usually the culprit in Iowa for leaking roofs, high winds can tear off shingles and leave exposed nail holes. If you don’t catch the leak or damage soon enough, it can cause even further damage to your shingle roof, which could end up ruining your home, literally. Rot, mold, and mildew growth, which will spread throughout the house, ruining your belongings and the health of your family
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.
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.
Blockton Hail Storm Damage
If you have hail damage, especially if it's bad enough to cause leaks, nine times out of ten you will need a new roof. Some hail damage is obvious, and others are a challenge 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 up your claim, and an estimate to send to your insurance carrier. Blockton, Iowa has been hit by hail numerous times in the past few years, so call Cook Roofing Company for a roof evaluation and estimate, on us. 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.
Should I Get More than One Roof Estimate?
Well, ask yourself why you need to get more than one estimate. Cook Roofing Company could provide a thorough estimate and backed by a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty - something rarely given by roofing contractors in Blockton. We are very competitive and will price match any other roofers offer, so long as it will cover the cost to do the job, the right way. Beware, other roofers often cut corners and may tell you things like new flashing or drip edge aren't necessary. If your roof repair is covered by insurance, we usually do the work they pay for, plus the deductible. 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.
