Minimize Cuts

You may need to replace a single shingle or several. However, minimizing your cuts will reduce how much they leak. You should also purchase an entire pack of shingles to be safe. They can quickly break when they’re handled before they’re installed.

Fill in Holes

If they’re ripped away, there are likely nail holes. These need to be filled to prevent them from leaking later. Make sure you use proper adhesives rated for roofing projects. Otherwise, they won’t last long under daily sun and rain.
