As a first time homeowner, I'm asking an ignorant question. Our roof is 14 years old and over the winter we found about 10 torn shingles on the yard. We have not detect any water leakage yet. Do we need to repair them asap?

Since a roof is not an insurable item by your casualty insurer, it is in you own best interest to repair or replace the damage roof asap.

Any leak damages you incur will be your own responsibility and not a covered item by your insurance agent.

You may not have detected any leaks, but the leaks may be running down walls or staying in the attic. Water can run where it can't be seen. Have you been in your attic to inspect?

Thank you for your advice. We checked the attic yesterday and it seemed to be fine so far. I called a roofer to take care of it. They said it will cost about $125 plus the material.
