House for sale inspection questions?

I’m excited I’ve had multiple offers on my house for sale. I’ve never been thru this, and was told most houses are on the market here avg. 90 days. I got 3 offers in less than a week! It’s a cute little house in a good location.

It’s under contract, and the inspector should come this week.
I’m worried about 2 things:
There’s wood rot at the bottom of the walk in garage door.
The repairman said he’d cut the wood up to the ‘good’ part and replace it,, use some sort of filler for cracks – what do they use in case I found someone to do it cheaper? – and paint it.
He’s charging $250;seems like a lot.

Is this acceptable to an inspector? Will he notice, and will he object that it’s been done this way- the whole doorframe wasn’t changed?

Also, I have a handful of shingles missing on the roof. It’s a good roof otherwise. There is one corner a roofer told me was soft a yr ago. My neighbors fir tree dripped on it. We cut it down right away. Does that dry out or stay soft?

Thanks
