Who ever thought that saving all your beer or pop cans could come in so handy? If you need to make emergency repairs to your shingle roof or you are looking to not spend any money on a roof for a shed or a garage, this awesome DIY project is for you.

Making these can be tedious but the end result is gratifying because the old cans are fulfilling an immediate second life. A 24″x24″ roof area will use from 36 to 50 cans (excluding drip edge and caps) depending on the vertical spacing and shingle style; that comes to 900-1250 cans per roof square (10’x10′). Start drinking now if you plan to try this.

I love this project and I hope to someday use the knowledge I learned from the article in the link below and put it to good use. I like how this method could be used in disaster areas where there isn’t a lot of money to repair homes.
