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.

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 816-680-6996 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 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.

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 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 West Point. 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.

FAQ

Can you replace only a few shingles?
If the damage to the shingles is not severe, then yes. If it's a substantial leak in your roof, the flashing on your roof under the damaged shingles may also be damaged, and tearing up a few shingles to replace the broken ones may cause more damage to the flashing (which would just prolong the underlying problem). On the other hand, if the damage to the shingle is nothing to sneeze at (such as a tiny crack), you may not even have to replace the shingles; you could just apply a sealant to seal the crack.
What is average lifespan of a shingle roof?
A shingle roof can last up to a few decades. The most common type of shingle roof utilizes asphalt shingle, and their lifespan is 15-25 years before notable decline/damage.
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.
