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 Prairie, 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 816-680-6996 and we'd be happy to come take a look for you.
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 816-680-6996, 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.
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 Prairie, 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 Prairie. 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 816-680-6996.
