Asphalt Roof Repair
Fix Curled Roof Shingle Corners with Caulking
Over time, the corners of asphalt roof shingles usually begin to curl up or down. If you notice a roof shingle starting to curl, you can glue down the curled section.
Simply use a caulking gun to apply roofing sealant under the asphalt shingle corner. Weigh it down with a brick and leave the weight in place for at least 24 hours until the sealant dries.
Cracked Roof Shingles Repair
If a roof shingle is cracked or torn, you can repair it instead of replacing it. Begin by applying thick roofing sealant under the crack. Press the roof shingle down and apply a second bead of sealant on top of the crack. Then spread the sealant with a putty knife.
The great thing about this easy asphalt roof shingle fix is that it’s barely noticeable. Just make sure to the gutter for an accumulation of colored granules that have washed down the roof from the shingles. Then gather some into a small cup and sprinkle them over the sealant to mask the repair.
