Satellite dish removal

Have a small satellite internet dish I'd like to remove from a 1-year old roof. I think there are 4 (maybe 6) bolts into roof.Any suggestions on how to aesthetically seal the holes securely...? Are there "plugs" available so's to make a neat job...? It doesn't seem like a big job...just wondering what's out there specifically for that purpose.
Thanx for any feedback.
Charlie

You could slightly lift the shingle, use regular roof sealant or a polyurathane sealant around the lower hole, then slip a small piece of flashing in, put a circular bead of sealant that won't ooze into the upper hole and press down the top shingle (might need to weight it down depending on how far you lift).

Depending on the roof color...you might be able to find a sealant that would be a pretty close match. If not you could use clear and sprinkle some granules collected from the gutter or possibly just some sand of a similar color onto the sealant while its fresh.

I suppose the worst case scenario would be to replace the shingle

Thanx for the feedback guys. Was gonna call the roofer to see if he kept a shingle from which I could get some granules.
