About our Shingle Roof Repair services
Are you curious if your traditional shingle roof can be repaired? You are probably in search of a roof repair company, or even wondering if the repairs are something you can do yourself.
Common Causes of Shingle Roof Leaks
The most common calls we get regarding roof repairs are for leaky roofs. In Missouri, high winds, storms, and hail damage are typically the culprit. Often it is just a loose ridge cap, or some bent flashings, which can be easily fixed with some new shingles and caulking. Not repairing a leaky roof right away, however, can be detrimental to your home. Further damage to already compromised areas can cause more leaking, and eventually water damage to your home. Removal of mold, wood rot, and mildew growth will cost even more in repairs and can affect the health of your family as well.
Can You Repair Your Shingle Roof Leak Yourself?
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 (417) 334-4238 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.

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 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.
How Many Roof Repair Estimates Should You Get?
Well, ask yourself why you need to get multiple estimates. Cook Roofing Company will provide you with a thorough estimate and back our work with a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty - something practically unheard of in other roofing contractors in Belle. 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 generally do the work for what the insurance company pays, plus the deductible, which we can finance. The exceptions to this would be for upgrades you want (like premium shingles, metal roof, high end craftsman windows, etc), or for things that weren't covered (such as 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 looks amazing, is installed right, will last, and is backed by the industry's best warranty, our number is (417) 334-4238.
