How do rain gutters damage roofs?

How can I repair a wooden shingle?

First, you'll need a "shingle ripper" tool. Use the shingle ripper to cut the nails securing the shingle you want to replace and remove it. Next, place the replacement shingle where the original shingle was, but keep the new shingle sticking out by about a quarter of an inch (compared to the neighboring shingles. Nail the shingle to the roof deck with the nails going just below the overlapping shingle. Using a hammer and a block of wood, hammer the butt end of the shingle, forcing it under the overlapping shingle and into alignment with its neighbors.

How can I replace a roof tile?

Remove the damaged tile. You should be able to gently lift the tiles just above and then slide the new tile into place. Depending on the type of tile used, you should see a batten that the new tile hooks over. If not, you may need to use nails to secure the new tile in place.

How can I repair an asphalt shingle?

If you have shingles that are peeling, curled up, or torn, you can use roofing cement to fix them. After applying the roofing cement, use nails to keep the shingle secure while the cement dries. You can easily replace missing asphalt shingles by cutting roofing material to the proper size and positioning and nailing it beneath the overlapping row.
