As a savvy home or business owner, you know that it’s a good idea to learn how to do some repairs yourself every now and again. It can save you both money and the hassle that can come from hiring someone else to do the job. If the damage you are considering isn’t extensive, or if you are just needing to do maintenance on your roof, you can use the following information for repairing your own roof.
Perhaps your roofing is made up of asphalt shingles. Over time, these get brittle and lose their flexibility. Strong winds will break those shingles instead of settling back into place.
Lift up the tabs of the damaged shingle, as well as the one above it, so that the nails can be removed. Once the damaged shingle has been taken out you can just replace it with another. Make sure to embed the nails into the felt and sheathing. Over time, the heat of summer will cause both the roof and shingles to expand and those nails can then pop out of place.
