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 Creston, 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 Shingle Roof Leak Yourself?

Missing Flashing

If the problem is some flashing that's missing, or maybe a crack that just needs a little caulk, then sure, it's possible. It could be difficult to determine if there is other hidden damage you're just covering up though, and remember, that could eventually lead to more damages than just a small repair. If the wind tore aside a piece of flashing, and it's been raining and soaking the decking, the rafters, insulation, and going down into a wall, you could have thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars' worth of damage you might miss, which could have grave consequences. If your roof has gotten to this point then it would be worth your while to file an insurance claim. If you're unsure, call us at 515-305-3253 and we'd be happy to come take a look for you.

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.

Creston 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. Creston, IA 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.

Must I Get more Than One Roof Estimate?

No, not technically. Insurance companies usually only suggest doing this so that way they can get your roof replaced for as cheap as they can.

We will price match any other contractors offer, so long as it allows for all of the materials required for the job to be done right. Other roofers might try to skim a little off the top, or cheat you by saying you don’t need new flashing, or new drip edges, Cook Roofing Company doesn’t cut corners though. We do the work you and your insurance paid us for and we get it done the right way so you can have peace of mind where your roof is concerned. If you want upgrades such as premium shingles, high craftsman windows, or a metal roof it might not be covered by your insurance claim though. We are not the cheapest in town, but we are the fairest, with the craftsmanship to get your roof repaired or replaced, while backed by the industries best warranty. so what are you waiting for? Give us a call at 515-305-3253 and we'll be happy to help.

FAQ

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.
What is average lifespan of a shingle roof?
A shingle roof can last up to a few decades. The most common type of shingle roof utilizes asphalt shingle, and their lifespan is 15-25 years before notable decline/damage.
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.
