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 Missouri 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

Can You Repair Your Leaking Shingle Roof?

Missing Flashing

If the problem is some missing flashing or something a bit of caulk can seal up, then yes you may be able to fix it yourself. You need to determine if there is other hidden damage you're just covering up though. If wind ripped a piece of flashing aside, and it's been raining and saturating the decking, rafters, insulation, and going down into a wall, you could have thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars' worth of damage you can't see. This would make an insurance claim worthwhile. If you're not sure, call us at (417) 334-4238 and we'd be happy to come take a look.

Wind Damage and Missing Shingles

If you have a few shingles missing, it's a more complicated repair. If your roof is newer (ten years or so), 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 disrupt for each damaged shingle. Shingle tabs get torn by wind, which more often than not insurance will cover. Sometimes shingles are simply frail and damaged from wear and tear. The safest course of action is just to have us come out and inspect your roof, afterwards we'll tell you if there's more extensive damage, and whether the roof is repairable. We'll evaluate your roof and give you a free estimate, which you can give to your insurance company if needed. If you give us a call at (417) 334-4238, we can give you our expert advice.

Shingle Roof Repair Examples

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

Pontiac 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. Pontiac 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 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.

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 Pontiac. 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.

FAQ

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.
Can a shingle roof be patched?
Patching can work out when there isn't that much damage to your shingle roof. However, patchwork won't always solve your problem; a roof is a complicated system designed to protect your home from the elements, and there might be more damage under the shingles that you may not notice on your own. So, call a professional roofing service to, at the very least, evaluate the damage to your roof and recommend whether to use simple patchwork to fix the problem.
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.
