About our Shingle Roof Repair services
Since you’ve discovered this page, you might be wondering if your shingle roof is repairable, or you're looking for someone to repair it. Or maybe you are considering doing the work yourself.
What Are The Main Reasons a Shingle Roof Leaks?
Roof repairs for leaks are the biggest reason people in St. Joseph, MO call us. Sometimes it's just the flashing or some ridge cap that's come loose, and some caulking or a few shingles will set everything right. Sometimes there's missing shingle tabs that have torn off from the wind, which can expose nails or open a crack which leads to a leaky roof. Hail is also a common cause of leaky roofs in Missouri. A leak that has been there for a while may have caused further hidden damage, which you will need to take into consideration as well. The longer you wait, the more likely it will become that this one little leak will spread and destroy your home, quite 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.
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 816-680-6996, 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.
Hail Damage in St. Joseph, Missouri
If you have hail damage, especially if it's bad enough to cause leaks, you will need a new roof 99% of the time. Some hail hits are obvious, and others are tough 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 it up, and an estimate to send to your insurance carrier. St. Joseph has been hit by hail many times in the past few years, so call Cook Roofing Company for a free roof evaluation and estimate. If it's an insurance claim, you'll only be out your deductible, and we can finance that.
How Much Does a New Roof Cost?
As the case is when shopping for any product, it depends on your needs. If the elements caused the leak, (providing your insurance covers storm damage) more than likely all you'll be responsible for is a deductible. We do offer 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 is the first step, and there's no obligation. Minor repairs may be even less than your deductible and there'd be no need to file a claim. If you leave a leak neglected however, 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 procrastinating. Please give us a call or contact us by email.
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 St. Joseph. 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 816-680-6996.
