Anybody have any suggestions as to how to go about patching a hole I accidentally drilled through my mothers roof without having to cut in a new section of roof? It goes all the way from the inside ceiling to the exposed outer surface. I'm not worried about the ceiling (that was needed) just the roofing plywood and shingle (that was not needed).

See a snap shot here:

go to the big box store and get one piece of alum step till be L shaped and cost about .30 cents...take a hammer and beat the bend out of it making it a flat piece of metal. Take a small flat prybar and break the seal of the shingle tab that you drilled the hole thru...slide the alum up untill it covers the hole...apply 100% silicone ontop of the alum piece and under the shingle tab then press firmly....

if you have a coke can, you can use it for the aluminum for the patch ( beer can will also work ) :o)

To add to Monkey's reply, it wouldn't hurt to put a dab of roofing tar in the hole itself.
