    I’m glad that this is helping so many people, I still do a lot of roof
    repairs just be safe and if it makes you nervous getting up on your roof,
    you should call someone that has a good history of repairing or replacing.

    The 3 tab shingle isn’t really going to last any longer than 15 years. Like
    with this roof the abs of the shingles aren’t sealed anymore that means its
    time to remove all of them and install a new roof. I recommend using a
    solid slab shingle. You will get a better seal and a better look. The hook
    blade knife he showed us is used for face cutting like he said and this
    would occur when cutting shingles in around extrusions coming through the
    roof such as, pipes, vents and skylights anything that is using a metal or
    plastic flange. Tearing the whole roof off would be done differently than
    the way he illustrated…

    Thanks for a great “how to” video. Roofing is very dangerous work. I know
    of two men who fell off the roof while trying to do their own repairs. One
    shattered his elbow and the other suffered permanent brain damage. I’m not
    trying to scare anyone. I’m just trying to point out the hazards.
    Personally, I think it is better to hire a professional than to get up on
    the roof yourself. Just consider it an expense. Don’t risk your health.

    Can you explain or show how to repair the row of shingles right below the
    ridge cap? I have some shingles blown off in a storm right below the ridge
    cap. How do you safely remove them and re install the shingles? Thanks.

    Guys. cures your shingles safely doesn’t need to be hard (I used to feel it
    did). I’ll give you some tips right now. Get a popular shingles home remedy
    called Shinglezim Remedy (do a yahoo search). Thanks to it I have
    eliminated my pain & embarrassment for good by using natural approaches. I
    shouldn’t even be speaking about it cause I don’t really want a lot of
    other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I’m just in a
    excellent mood today so I will share the wealth lol.
