Shingle replacement

Lost several shingles compliments of Wilma. Can shingles be replaced with out replacing 30lb felt or is it not worth the savings of the felt layer? Thanks.

Are you looking at a total replacement or just the missing shingles?

If your tearing off the whole roof you will want to get down to the decking. If your replacing the missing shingles you only have to replace the felt if it is missing. It wouldn't be a bad idea though if you have large areas of missing shingles to put some tar paper down like a layer of 15 pound over the original felt to cover the nail or staple holes.

If you have a good amount of shingles that blew off and homeowners insurance you should be able to get a new roof from your insurance company.
