We just had a home inspection completed on a place we're thinking of buying, and amongst the faults that were highlighted was the fact that the inspection report states that there's tenting on various shingles across the roof. I assume that means the odd shingle here and there (as highlighted in the photograph) sticks up a little.
Is this an easy fix? We're trying to do our sums to figure out how much work this place needs and what it will cost. I'm hoping that this is just a case of sticking some tar under each one and pressing them down.
No way to tell without getting up on the roof.
Could be as simple as nail pops, Lift the shingle, move the nail over and drive it back in.
May be to short a nail was used, 1-1/4 if it's single layer of shingles 1-1/2 or 1-3/4 if there's two layers.
Or the reason there popping is someone installed the shingles over rotten wood trying to cheap out. Then you would need a whole new roof.
If the inspector was doing his job he would have gone on the roof and in the attic to check it out better.
