Shingles are cracked or broken: Shingles that are cracked can be replaced individually. However, if the crack or tear is minor, you may not even have to; you can simply repair the tile with the use of roofing sealant. If a tile is simply cracked or broken, you don't have to replace it, just repair it. Start by applying a thick bead of roofing sealant under the crack.
Press the tile down and apply a second coat of sealant to the top of the crack. Then spread the sealant with a spatula. Asphalt shingles can easily be damaged by high winds and falling tree branches. When replacing a damaged asphalt shingle, you can replace the entire part or cut the shingle into sections and replace only one flange.
In the end, if your roof only needs to replace a few shingles or do some minor patches, you can hire a roofer to do those small repairs for you. If your roof is more than 20 years old and most shingles are damaged or badly worn, it's time to replace it. We only use quality products such as HardiePlank home siding, Hardie Plank lap siding, Simonton New Home replacement windows and Andersen replacement windows. To replace damaged roof tiles, you need to remove the damaged tile, install the new one, and seal the edges.
