Asphalt shingle replacement, stop those roof leaks!

Picture of Don't rip the underlayment!
You want to leave the underlayment (tarpaper) intact. I tore the tarpaper here with my prybar, looking for a nail. It is very easy to tear 15# underlayment, which many commercial roofers use. Be sure any tears are repaired with the roofing cement.
