How To Replace One Shingle [3-tab style]

Nov 22, 2021
Hi I'm Shannon from Quiet Home Improvement and in today's video I want to show you how to remove and

replace

a three tab

shingle

so we don't really have one that really needs to be

replace

d but we'll replace it anyway just to show you that this is our

shingle

that we are going to use as a replacement is not below the same shingle shipped but you won't always be able to find the exact same color and everything so you may have a shingle that is damaged or maybe part of it being blasted in the wind or something and you need to get in there and replace it so we're going to say this shingle here is the only one in this case so it's basically a tab of three when it's on where there should be some nails in the tar strip , but they're going to be covered by the top row, so if you take a flat bar like this and just carefully pry under it and loosen the tabs, they'll be kind of stuck. down because the tabs on the actual bubble got stuck in that tar stuff I guess this tab got loose ok so we got to the point where we move it I need to get a couple more here and if your roof is very hot and the shingles are very soft you have to be a little more careful not to put the bar through and then end up having to change more ok this one is too alright so you have to be careful so when you're pulling these up these are the ones that should only lift up when we nail the new one in place but you can see here here are the nails in the one we want to remove okay like this that I'll go in carefully and try to get these out, depending on what type of shingles I usually have. having four to six nails is fine so we pull those four nails out in this case now this is the shingle we're removing so we have to pry it loose from the bottom ones and the actual top shingles are sorry for the nails and this it could be through they're building up the size of the shingle you're just feeling around to see if that's the case and they are so I just have to get the nails out of this one up here so things are freezing on these tabs .

It's important to make sure that we go back and take down all these nails that we're going to remove. them so I'm going to get these nails out now remember this is the one we're actually trying to get out but we've had to go up two rows here as well to get all the nails out and these shingles in this row we're reusing them like so which we also don't want to damage the shingles too much if we can avoid it now i think we should retire now hopefully we still have one in there somewhere and the result is fine so there's our shingle we're removing see our roof decking under there now what you may also find is that sometimes the shingles are different sizes in terms of length this just happens to be the correct length so in your case you may have to trim using bid to take up the space it's trying to take it so basically slide it into position like this and then you have to hold these tabs up so we can hammer in some nails we're doing three tabs so we're nailing right into the glue o sorry , right into the little strip of tar that's there okay that's got our replacement shingle in place now now we just have to go back and replace the nails at the top where we took them out to get our old shingle off so let's go to have one here we won't be going back in the exact same spot more than an inch or so ok with a little bit of sun a little bit of time these will stick back on if you have any concerns ta Maybe you're doing this late in the fall or something when you're not expecting a lot of warm weather or maybe there's a big wind storm on the way you can put some daubs TIE your roofing cement under here just to glue them down don't put a balloon too much big basically put a nickel sized dot or something on each corner just push that in there and that will just help the little one seal a little faster do that on all of them all you lift it up if it puts too much , tends to leave a stain that is visible on top of the shingle.
