Buying house: roof issues

I am buying a pre owned house. The seller is replacing the roof with asphalt shingles. The installation started yesterday and we had a thunderstorm and hail yesterday.
The forecast also says thunderstorms today (50%) and tomorrow(90%) also. The roof was half done yesterday and it has a tarp over uncovered sections this morning. They might be working on the rest now.

It feels like i should be concerned. I brought this up to my realtor but she said they are professionals.

Would it be possible to get a roofing inspection and actually see if it was properly installed?


On another similar note, my truck got 10 hail dents yesterday.

Welcome to the forums.

So far, this all sounds normal to me - weather happens.

I understand, I just don't want to have roof issues. I feel better now because it has not rained yet today.

No one wants to have roof issues and the roofers don't want you to have issues, either.
