  2. 2. Roof Repairs ● Actually, the minor roof leaks may be repaired without the help of a professional roofer. ● However, you should work on your roof on a day when the roof is dry, to prevent accidents. ● Here are some common ideas for identifying and fixing roof issues.
  3. 3. Inspect the Roof ● If your roof is slanted, inspect areas on the roof that are higher than where the leak enters the home. ● If you have an attic, inspect it with a flashlight for water stains, black marks or mold.
  4. 4. Look For Damaged Roof ● Look for damaged, curled or missing shingles near where the leak is coming in. ● Look closely for exposed roofing tacks, too.
  5. 5. Straighten The Roof Shingles ● In colder weather, this might require that you soften the shingle edge with heat, such as an electric hair dryer. ● Using a torch or other open flame heat source isn't recommended since asphalt shingles may be flammable, and regardless of whether they are flame retardant or not, excess heat will ruin the shingle.
  6. 6. Replace Damaged Shingles ● Remove the old shingle by lifting its edges and prying out the nail. ● Scrape the area underneath it to remove any leftover roofing cement. ● Slide the new shingle into place and drive 1 1⁄4 inch (3.2 cm) galvanized roofing nails into each upper corner, then cover the nail heads with roof cement.
