Default Did my roofer mess up?

I had some roof repair after the hurricane and I finally got a camera stand and managed to see what the roofer did. It looks like couple of shingles missing? (No leaks in the house btw).

Also is the rafter suppose to be popping up like that where the dormer is?
The repair was done in April. Can I still call the person and ask why is there shingles missing? We haven't had any extreme weather since then.

Check the video.

Looks like poop to me.
Looks like you past due for a new roof anyway.
Do not use 3 tabs next time.
I for sure would not have that roofer back for anything.
That was a roofing 101 repair and he failed the test.

I agree with Joe, pretty bad. He didn't even stagger the courses when the new and the old tie into each other. Hope you didn't pay a lot...
