Roof Replacement

Roof Replacement Service

Ohio’s weather is known for its unpredictability, and this can be seen in the frequent need for roof replacements. Due to extreme temperature fluctuations and harsh weather conditions, roofs can deteriorate quickly in Dayton Ohio.

Homeowners may experience sudden leaks and other problems with their roofs, leading to the need for replacement. This process of replacing the roof can be seen as a constant reminder of the ever-changing weather patterns of Ohio.

As the saying goes, “the only constant is change,” and this rings true in both the weather and the need for home maintenance in Ohio. Homeowners must stay prepared for the unexpected and be proactive in maintaining their homes to avoid potential damages caused by the shifting Ohio weather.

Options to Fit Any Roofing Job

When it comes to a new roof, durability is important, of course. But so is color and design! RA Cooks Renovations is proud to offer a wide variety of roofing materials and styles so you’re sure to find an option that complements your home’s design and color palette.

Shingle Roof Replacement


Asphalt shingle roofs offer a wide variety of styles and designs. Having so many choices for the shade and shape of your shingle roof is just one of the many benefits.


Shingle roofs are the most economic option, making a new shingle roof possible for nearly every home

Energy Efficient

When you get new asphalt roofing, you also get brand new underlayment, which means your home will be more energy efficient.

Metal Roof Replacement

Infinite Durability

Metal roofs are the most durable and long lasting of all the roofing options. A metal roof is unlikely to ever need replacing.

Energy Cost Savings

If you’re looking to decrease your overall heating and cooling costs, a metal roof is your best bet. Metal roofing material is unique in its ability to reflect heat and drastically lower energy costs.

Variety of Colors

Metal roofs come in a unique variety of colors and styles—many more than standard shingles—so you’re sure to find a style that fits your home.

Flat Roof Replacement


In most cases, the cost of flat roof materials and flat roof installation is significantly less than that of a pitched roof. This makes it an attractive option for home builders on a budget.

Add Usable Space

A flat roof can actually add more usable space to your home. Unlike a pitched roof, the different types of flat roofs can be used for a patio space, a garden, or a greenhouse.

Modern Aesthetic

A flat roof gives your house a sleek, modern look with clean lines that highlight your home’s overall design aesthetic.

Warning Signs of Roof Problems

Think you might have a roof problem? Check for these tell-tale signs :

  • Aged appearance
  • Missing, cracked, or curling shingles
  • Presence of granules or sand in your driveway
  • Shingles popping up and/or exposed nail heads
  • Missing flashes & loose step flashing
  • Increase in heating & cooling bills
  • Pooling water
  • Frost or condensation in unexpected places
  • Attic leaks
  • Wall & ceiling stains
  • Sagging
  • Damaged gutters
  • Mold & algae growth
  • Damaged venting
  • Dark spots on insulation material
  • Light penetrating from outside 
If you see any of these warning signs, resist the temptation to climb on the roof to investigate further. You could actually end up causing additional damage to the compromised areas and risk your own safety. Call the residential roofing specialists at RA Cooks.

How much does roof repair cost?

Homeowners want to know how much they can expect to pay for a roof repair or roof replacement. Average costs are based on several determining factors:

  • Roof Type: The type of roof you have will determine how much the replacement materials cost.
  • Permits: Your county or city may require a permit to have the repairs done. Generally, the roofer will add that cost into the final bill, but some contractors need you to get the permit with them.

Does all of the roof need to be repaired?

The amount of damage that needs to get fixed will affect that final bill. Only a few shingles needing to be replaced will be less expensive than needing part of the wood replaced before any of the underlayment and shingles can be added back in. A few things that cause the biggest cost would be:

  • Water damage
  • Special features (chimneys, solar tube lights, skylights)
  • Finding the right roofer
