Introduzione

A broken asphalt roof shingle will be repaired through this guide. Roof shingles, especially asphalt ones, wear and tear after years of sun damage, rain, and heavy wind. They need to be replaced because water can get under the broken shingle and cause the wood to rot or create a leak in the roof. The guide will be specific to repairing one tab of the shingle sections.
