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 Promise City, IA 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 Iowa 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.
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. 515-305-3253
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 Promise City, IA, 52583, 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 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 Promise City. 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 515-305-3253.
