Shingle Hole Roof Patch

Some shingle granules can make a shingle patch look better

Family Handyman

When I removed a satellite dish from my roof, the mounting rack screws left unsightly holes in my shingles that were visible from the ground. As I was patching up the holes with some caulk, I saw a bunch of shingle granules that had washed into the gutter. I grabbed a handful and sprinkled them on the caulked areas while the caulk was still wet. The coverage wasn’t perfect, but from the ground, those patches look a whole lot better than black caulk would! — Samuel Larson
