Home Projects: A Leaky Roof

In that old '35 house of mine, I had a place in the roof that had a leak. I had been up in the attic myself to look for this leak, but I just couldn't find it. So I had to call a roofer to look at this and get it fixed, but I learned something the other day that I just hadn't thought of.
See this picture below. That roofer came out and he immediately saw the problem after climbing up on top of the roof. He saw this carpenter nail, just below one of the shingle lines. Notice the tip of the nail. Its rusty.  Water has definitely been there. So some liquid tar and a few minutes later, leak fixed.
