I belong to a little brick bungalow in the midwest US, built in '54.
Contractor did a scrape and shingle back in '96 ("20 year" shingles). Missed a spot around a vent. I took some ceiling damage before he got over to nail down some loose shingles.
Now I got at least 2 more shingles near the peak, flappin' in the hi winds.
I am old and infirm, cannot walk the roof. Distrust my footwear, the surface, and my balance. But I can hang off a ladder, get a little work done.
I measured: it's 13' from the edge of the roof to the loose shingles.
To secure the loose shingles, one just smears plastic roof cement underneath and allow to cure?
I'm thinking, if I get 2 14' boards, sharpen the end of one, use that to hold a shingle up, put a mess of cement on the end of the other, push it up, flip it over to apply cement, I could maybe get a decent bond.
Does this sound practical? Alternatives (for a 1 man job from roofs edge)?
