My roofer has left for the day leaving my roof with tar paper

This answer was rated:

My roofer has left for the day leaving my roof with tar paper only. It is crwzy raining right now. Should I be concerned?.....thanks

Rick :

If the wind isn't blowing you're probably ok. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about this

Rick :

They likely laid the paper down so it will shed the rain. So as long as the wind doesn't blow it off or drive the rain under the paper the roof probably won't leak. That said this isn't a good way to leave a stripped roof before a summer rain storm. They should have thrown a tarp over the roof and secured the tarp


thank you.
