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.
Is it Possible To Repair Your Own Shingle Roof?
If it's something simple, like a missing piece of flashing, or a new crack that only needs a little caulking to set it right, then maybe. Are you confident that you can tell if the crack has been there for a short time, or if it's been there long enough to saturate the insulation, the decking, the rafters, and down into the walls underneath? if not, then you could just be putting your home at risk for the aforementioned damage to your home. This could cost a small fortune to repair when it's all said and done. It's better to be safe than sorry, call Cook Roofing Company to come out and take a look at your roof, so we can help you clarify what your roof needs, and even assist you in your insurance claim.
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. 816-680-6996
Shingle Roof Repair Examples
Here are some examples of things that look like a simple repair, but aren't.
Hail Damage in Walnut, 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. Walnut, MO 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 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 Walnut. 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.
