a. billinstuart is right, sadly

b. skibum is right about notifying your insurance company. The adjuster will probably have one of their roofers get onto the roof and give a visual inspection. Bent tabs are very common and a roofer that repairs shingles will not warranty his work if he's smart, because the tab right next to the one he renailed might rip off in the next storm.

If they tell you they won't warrant the work, they're honest. If they warrant the work, be very surprised if you see them again.

Roofers can charge $1200 and be fair if they actually spend a lot of time inspecting and re-nailing a lot more than you thought was broken. A quick in/out would be half of that, assuming a 12/12 pitch or so.
