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 Cromwell, 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.

Should I Repair a Shingle Roof on my Own?

Most people are not experts in home inspection. You might be able to tell if your roof is leaking, but typically you won't know what's causing the leak or how to fix it. Also, roofing can be a dangerous job, and if you don't know what you're doing, then the results could be devastating. You should almost always hire professional roofers to do this work because it's not something that you want to take on yourself. The last thing that you want is for your home to get damaged simply because of a lack of experience or knowledge when it comes to roofing. Cook Roofing Company will come out and take care of your roof problems right away so that they won't get any worse than they already are. We'll make sure that everything looks nice again before we leave, so there's nothing left for you to worry about! Call us today at 515-305-3253!

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.

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 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.

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 Cromwell. 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.

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.
When should the shingles on my roof be replaced?
You should consider replacing your roof or checking it for damages if you haven't for a few decades. To be more specific, you should inspect your roof for possible damage after a certain amount of years, depending on what type of shingle roof you have. For composition shingles, 12-20 years, wood shingles, 20-25 years, and asphalt shingles, 15-30 years. To be sure that you need a repair or replacement of your roof, make sure to look for some of the tell-tell signs of damage, including signs of water damage, cracked or damaged shingles, sagging, etc.
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.
