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

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!

Missing Shingles and Wind Damage

A few missing shingles may not be too difficult to repair, but the more shingles that are missing, the more complicated it gets. For a newer roof, particularly one under about ten years old, it might be possible to order shingles and make the repair yourself. All of the damaged shingles, and likely most of the ones around them, will have to be removed and replaced. Everything then must be properly sealed back up. The best thing you can do if you do have missing shingles and wind damage is to let the specialists at Cook Roofing Company come take a look. We give accurate and fair estimates and can work with your insurance company. Call us at 515-305-3253, and we will be happy to help.

Shingle Roof Repair Examples

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

Is Your Roof Hail Damaged?

Are your gutters clogging? Do you have dents on your downspouts? Is your deck and siding looking worse for wear? You might have hail damage to your roof. Hail damage is a number one cause for leaking and damaged roofs. We are extensively trained to spot hail damage and we can fill out a storm report for your area. This will aid you in backing up your insurance claim. We can also draw up an estimate to submit to your insurance carrier. There have been so many hail storms in Humeston, you could have hail damage and not even know it. Let Cook Roofing Company take a look for you, give you a free estimate and if you end up filing an insurance claim we can help finance your deductible.

How Much Does Shingle Roof Repair Cost?

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 liable for out of pocket is your deductible. We do offer deductible financing (we'd love to waive your deductible, but 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, while hidden damage can 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 problem, stop it, and see if insurance will cover it, than just ignore it or procrastinate. Go ahead, call us 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 Humeston. 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

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.
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.
