Due to recent windstorm in our area, 2-3 shingles are missing from my roof, which I can see from ground level.

Question is, we are expecting some rain later part of this week. Should I get it fixed before it or it can wait a few days and wonít cause any damage?

Thanks for any advice and help

Depends how overlapped they are and what kinda membrane you have underneath.
We have a few missing, ours fully overlap and we have a recent membrane change so waiting until weather is better before getting on the roof.

I agree, replace the missing shingles ASAP. If u donít have time right now, tarp the area at the least. But tarp is just a band aid.

Are they 3 tab or architectural shingles? I nursed a old three tab roof on for a couple years with wind damage by cutting a new shingle to size and sliding it under where the old shingle was. You can even completely remove the old shingle and nail in place by bending up the shingle above it, but it requires some effort and scratches up your arms with fiberglass.

Bottom line is fix it, have a pro fix it, or face possible water damage if you can see the felt paper below the shingles. If its just a tab ripped off and you cant see the felt paper (or even the OSB plywood below the paper) then it can wait usually.


I urge people not to wait 100K to change out the fluid in their transfer case units. -Kestas

In a pinch, do this. Get some new shingles and a couple of tubes of asphalt in a caulking gun. Cut some of the newer tabs to match to missing tabs, apply a buttload of asphalt under it, then place it on top of the missing tabs and press it on. It will hold for a while until you're ready to replace the shingles or get a new roof.

Is it a 3 tab shingles?
It is commonly happened with that type of shingles based on my experience looking at neighbor's houses.

Fix it right away, water will go in because the 3 tab shingles does not really have too much overlap.

The architectural shingles (30 years warranty and up) have a lot more overlap and nails per shingles, that is why they hardly flew off with wind.

Before putting in a replacement shingle that might not hold that well, I'd put down a moisture barrier...regular plastic or sticky water/ice.

I've had the cheap asphalt shingles for the past 30 yrs and never lost a shingle in numerous heavy winds and nor'easters. My neighbor's roof is probably 25-30 yrs old on the cheap shingles. And while most of them are very brittle or curling upwards...none have blown away in heavy winds.

We bought a new house in Georgia in 2007. About two years later we started having shingles just slide right off the roof. No wind at the time so we couldn't figure it out. The builder of our small subdivision had gone bankrupt so we had no recourse there. I had a roofer come and repair it. He said that whoever nailed the shingles down did a terrible job, leaving them loose and prone to do exactly what they were doing. He repaired them for us and went on his way. Over the next five years this happened three more times. It started getting expensive replacing/repairing the shingles. For a relatively new house, the roof looked terrible. The last time it happened was right before we put our home on the market to move where are now. I hired another roofer to come out to make sure the roof was in good enough shape for the inevitable inspection that would happen during a sale. He said he wasn't sure it would pass inspection because not only had it been installed in a sloppy manner, but the original shingles that were installed were substandard at the time of installation and that there was a class-action lawsuit against the manufacturer of the shingles so there would be no help from any warranty. Long story short, I had to replace the roof in order to sell the house. Good Luck.

Problem is, my house is 3 level and at least need 40ft ladder.

Hence, I am leaving it for someone else to take care of it.
