Big mistake installing cellphone booster on roof
Mike

I installed a cellphone booster on my roof near the eavestrough and drilled a hole through the shingles to feed the coax cable.  I then ran the cable through the attic to where I needed it in the house. I obviously didn't think it through but think I fucked up now. I siliconed the shit out of it and plan on putting on roof cement over the are where the cable is once it gets warmer. 

Am I paniking for nothing or did I fuck up? What should I do?

No, you have good reason to kick yourself. You never, ever want any hole in the roof. Especially thru any of the shingles. Now you will have water coming in. The only way to correct this is to have that area of shingles replaces. If you have ice and water covering, you will have to have that replaced.

What kind of an idiot are you?
