QuestionsCategory: QuestionsAsphalt Shingle Maintenance. Advice on on some quick repair. Exposed Nails
Handyman Staff asked 2 months ago

How are things looking on this roof? I first noticed the exposed nail heads that have worn off caulking. My plan is to re-caulk it myself (geocell 2300) while cutting some circular tabs of asphalt shingle to cap the nail. Is this the way?

Two other questions:

1.) One nail is noticeably uplifted a bit. Should I knock it back into flush?

2.) In the pic, the third shingle on the ridge (from the bottom) looks to have been snapped off. This OK?
