St Louis Roofing Company

Choosing the Right Roofer In St Louis

What should you consider when finding a roofing company in St Louis? Well, here are a few things you should certainly consider:

How long has the company been around?

Cook Roofing Company is a 4th generation family business, with a tradition of quality since 1913. We’ll be here next month and next year, to honor our lifetime workmanship guarantee on your new roof. Our customers think we’re the best roofing company nearby, and we think you’ll agree!

Are they desperate for work and lowballing bids just to get you business? Do they engage in illegal practices like waiving your deductible?

There are plenty of roofers in Missouri who do that, and that can expose you to insurance fraud. We give a fair and thorough estimate, price match, and know how to work with insurance. We can also finance your deductible. And we don’t skimp on quality. Your roof is one of the best remodeling investments you can make. You want the best roofer in St Louis to do the job for you. We think that’s Cook Roofing Co. 

Does the roofing company want to slap a repair on your roof for the cost of insurance's first settlement offer?

Do they have the experience to spot and justify damages and repairs that all but the most experienced adjusters miss? Do they know when the adjuster is trying to cheat you on your estimate, and know how to get legitimately needed repairs paid for?

If you’re going to file a property insurance claim, you should make it count. Let us make sure that all the repairs needed to restore your covered damage are included, so you get your money’s worth from your insurance policy. 

Mark Cook, owner of Cook Roofing, is a licensed Public Adjuster in many states, and has extensive experience dealing with insurance companies. While he can’t act as both a roofing contractor and a PA on your insurance claim, he doesn’t forget everything he knows either. He knows how to spot insurance company tricks. Don’t get screwed cheated out of what you are owed, just because a roofing company wants to make a quick buck.

Is that local roofing company just a roofing contractor?

Or, are they a licensed general contractor with comprehensive construction experience? Cook Roofing is a licensed General Contractor, and as a residential roofing company has even built entire homes and housing developments. As a commercial construction company, we have built multi-family complexes, and office buildings, in addition to roofing all of those as a commercial roofing company. Don’t you want someone who understands everything holding up that roof, not just the roof itself? 

We hold most industry certifications that exist. We consult on a national level on multi-million dollar projects and large loss insurance property damage claims. So, we can certainly handle your job with competence.

As you can see, Cook Roofing Company is more than just a residential roofer near you. Besides roofing, we also install rain gutters, siding, fascia, soffit, windows, drywall, trim, kitchens, bathrooms, tile, decks, sunrooms… just ask!
