The shingles need gluing, as they have broken in the recent strong winds. I purchased it from Dunster House. What is the best glue?

The roof shingles should have a plastic backing which you peel off revealing a slightly sticky / tacky back before using felt nails to secure them down. In the sunshine this tacky backing heats up and should stick everything in place. You could either replace the shingles all together but I would buy them online as Dunster House are expensive or if you want to do a repair job you could try buying a roofing felt adhesive from a DIY store but it could be a bit messy. Good Luck
