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 Columbia, MO 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 Missouri 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.
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 573-400-0307 and we'd be happy to come take a look for you.
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 573-400-0307, 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.
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 a New Roof through Cook Roofing Company Cost?
It all depends on what your roof needs honestly. If bad weather conditions in your area have caused excessive wear and tear on your roof, it's typically only the deductible that you would be responsible for (permitting that your insurance provider overs hail, wind or storm damage). We do provide deductible financing. Beware of any roofing contractor that offers to waive your deductible, it's illegal and could get you into insurance fraud trouble. A roof inspection and estimate through Cook Roofing Company free of charge is the best first step. Small repairs may even cost less than your deductible, which means you might not even need to file a claim with your insurance. Don’t wait too long to call, as we mentioned before, if you let your roof go neglected for too long, it can cause extensive damage to your home which might not be covered by your insurance.

How Many Roof Repair Estimates Should You Get?
Well, ask yourself why you need to get more than one estimate. Cook Roofing Company will provide you with a thorough estimate and back our work with a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty - something rarely given by roofing contractors in Columbia. 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 usually do the work for what the insurance covers, plus the deductible, which we can finance. 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 573-400-0307.
