asphalt shingle adhesive?

Hi

We just had a bad windstorm that completely removed 2 whole shingles & 2 smaller shingles that had been shaped to fit along the sheet metal that joins 2 slops. I have reinstalled all the shingles but would like to now add an adhesive to the shingles since the adhesive strip along the bottom underside of the shingles has lost it's adhesive power. What would be the best adhesive to use for this job? thanks

Cans are good because it keeps pretty good, so you'll have it case there's a next time, but tubes can be handier to work with sometimes.

Thanks for your reply. Do they sell tubes like you use with a caulking gun of roofing cement?

OK thanks. So just put a bead under the tile near the bottom edge & that should do it?

It's best to put a quarter sized dot every 6" or so.

WetDry sealant works as well. Whatever's cheaper. Comes in tubes, and in hand squeeze tubes.
