Roof shingling defects.

At a recent Home Inspection, we observed an area where several roof shingles had blown off the roof of the home.  The home had two layers of shingles so the affected shingles that had blown off left the shingles from the first layer exposed.

Question:  What can this condition tell us about the remaining shingles.

Answer #1:  There is nothing to assure us that the remaining shingles are adequately nailed to prevent this from happening to other sections in the near future.

Answer #2:  The deficient nailing methods used on the top layer may include short nails, erratic nailing patterns, and other deficiencies.  Feel free to add comments below.
