You say they are on the ridge?
Pull up the bad ones, nail them down until you get to the last one (the nails will be covered by the next shingle) and then blackjack it down.
You could even nail all of them down and blackjack over the last shingle nails.

I like Black Jack in a caulk tube.


Black Jack it will be.

The shingles had three holes in them from where they ripped away from the roof. Shouldn't there be four nails per shingle?

Minimum of 4. 6 in some areas. Plus the nails from the shingle on top of it should hit that shingle too.

Any place you break the orginal seal, use the black jack to reseal the shingles.

4 nails min, 6 nails max.
