Shingles can normally be replaced without having to replace or repair the entire roof. In most situations, a replacement shingle will be deployed. It’s rarer to repair a shingle, although it can be done with caulk or roofing cement.

A professional will use a flat bar to break the damaged shingle free from the glue, securing it to the rest of the roof. They must take care not to damage surrounding shingles. If this occurs, they’ll need to replace those shingles too.

The roofer then pries the nails free, holding the shingle in place. Tug the shingle to check if it’s loose. If not, check for more nails.

Once free, remove the broken shingle. Slide a new shingle into the same place and secure it with nails. Ensure the surrounding shingles are also nailed securely in place.

Other roof repairs follow a similar journey. Homemakers should ask their roof repair company if they have any questions about the process. They can also find out what other services they can offer, such as regular maintenance.
