How to Repair a Leaking Asphalt Shingle Roof

Published on January 11th, 2021

Your residential roof has a huge task: to keep you and your family safe from the elements and to help provide you with a safe and comfortable living environment. If you’ve realized that your leaky roof is the result of damaged shingles, we highly recommend that you contact our roofing company near Nashville, TN for a professional opinion.

If you’d prefer to first attempt to fix the roof leak on your own, here are some tips on how to successfully make the repair on your own. Of course, you can always get in touch with our roofing company in Nashville, TN for further help.

Virtually Inspect the Leak

To begin, you’ll want to fully understand the extent of the damage. Start by completing a virtual inspection. You can even use a pair of binoculars to help see parts of your roof without using a ladder. Be mindful that the leaking water entering your home is rarely the site of the leak.

Regardless, any damaged shingles should be replaced to help prevent the need for roof repair in the future.

Replacing Shingles vs. Repairing Them: Which Is Better?

If you’re not sure whether you should repair your shingles or get new ones altogether, as a general rule of thumb, we always encourage customers to replace their shingles if they have the choice! Doing so will help further extend the lifespan of your roof.
