Maybe, consult your agent or claims department and ask. Who did the work? If it was you most likely not. If it was a contractor, his insurance will cover you.

No, insurance will not cover a roof, but if you purchased the home with any kind of warranty you might be able to get some help there. If shingles go bad that fast it's probably because of improper air circulation in the attic. If the attic gets much hotter than the outside air it will cause the shingles to curl and loose their mineral surface. Next time the roof is replaced, make sure you have the roofer put in some attic vents to keep the temperature down.

I needed to repair my mom's roof shingles Please help me How do I go about it?

To mend the shingles you require some roof repair materials. They are - roofing cement, aluminum flashing and a flat pry bar. The width of the flashing should be 1 inch lesser than that of the damaged strip of the shingle, and the length should be 4 inches more than it. Take the required measurement of the shingle and cut the flashing accordingly. Then you have to loosen up the damaged strip and the adjacent strips on its both sides with the help of pry bar. Now apply some roofing cement below the shingle where the flashing has to be placed. Insert the flashing under the shingle and put some more cement above it. Finally, put some pressure on the shingle so that it gets attached to the flashing properly. Or better yet, contact a roofing contractor.

Cheap Shingles are a Poor Choice?

Roofing material varies greatly in quality and price. Cheap shingles do not wear well and are a poor choice for such a vital component to a home's structure. When installed by the most skilled roofing professionals a cheaply constructed roof shingle is still sub-standard. Spending the money on better roof shingles saves the risk of leaks and damage from exposure to sun and climate. If damage occurs due to product fail, homeowners may find themselves out the money completely when they are forced to replace shingles that are not under warranty. Cheap shingles will not boast a great warranty.
