How to Quickly Patch a Small Hole In Your Roof


Patching a hole made by a nail, screw, or any other type of penetration in a steep sloped roof is easy. This method will work for wood shingles, slate, asphalt composition shingles, tile, etc. All you do is tuck a piece of sheet metal up under the piece with the hole in it so that the top of the metal is upslope of the hole about an inch. Secure it in place with urethane caulking. See the picture below. The black line represent shingles, the blue dotted lines the hole made, and the red line a piece of sheet metal.
