One piece of shingle was torn off by the heavy wind


A piece of one story house roof shingle was torn off by the heavy wind. The course below is still good. It seems needing a new piece of shingle to be nailed and glued down to the course below. Is it correct? If I ask the roofer to repair it, how much will be reasonable for this kind of job? See the picture here. Thank you.

If just one tab, you should be fine until it warms up enough to slip out that broken shingle, replace with a spare if you have one. If it was the whole shingle, OSB, Plywood or Pine boards are showing, you need to cover that side of the roof until it can be fixed.

No pictures came up.
Why not fix it yourself?
Got some leftover shingles? If not that's the hardest part of the job, finding matching shingles.
Only need an extension ladder, hammer, flat bar, a shingle and about 1 hours or less time to do the whole job.
You would have to call some local roofers or handy men for prices.
You did not add your location to your profile so hard to even make a guess on prices.
Asking prices on the net is just going to get guesses that are not going to you much good.

You should click on the word "here." It will display the picture. The job should be pretty easy but the roof slope is 45 degree and very slippy because of the sand. It has risky to climb on the roof. Do you have any good ideas to climb on the roof such as the special shoes etc, by the way?

You use two ladders in your case.
One with ladder hooks that sit over the top of the peak of the roof.
Looks like you have some odd metric shingles.
Get some more prices. I guess there going to come close in price.
There all going to have to spend time hunting down a matching shingle.
There all going to have to buy a bundle of shingles.
There all going to need two ladders.
There all going to have to stop working on another job to come fix that one shingle.
Make sure who ever shows up leaves the leftover shingles.

By the way, is it okay if I leave the problem there because the base wood does not show up?

Ok,I may try to replace this shingle by myself. Is it correct to nail and glue down a new piece of shingle or glue is not necessary? If the glue is necessary, what kind of the glue is good for the shingle adhesive?

It's not glue.

I would not bother with it but if it makes you feel better it's not going to hurt.

If your roof is a 45 degree pitch as you say, that equals a 12/12 pitch, so STAY OFF IT. Hire a professional to do this or risk a fatal fall, your choice.
