Roof Repair...

I noticed that my mom's roof has 4 small areas where the shingle? has come off and the wood looks like it's starting to crack. It is at the edge of the roof.  Unfortunately we do not have the money to replace the roof.  I have to try and do this on my own.  My dad passed away and I moved in to help her pay the house.  Any and all help is greatly appreciated.  I'm hoping I can just nail a shingle or something.  Wish me luck. :)

Hello Maria and Welcome to the How to Community.


Maria I’d be glad to help you fix those shingles on your own. But in order to give you a real and sensible answer I would need a little bit more information.


Is there any way you can post a picture of the section in need of repair?

You wouldn’t be able to see roof deck exposed at the edge of the roof unless you’re missing starter shingles and a drip edge…?

Normally first row of shingles it is nailed over the starter shingles or row of shingles flipped upside down…


You might   be looking at the exposed fascia…


It would really help if you were to post some pictures…


Also thumbs up on moving in and helping your mom like that, way to go.
