Winds of 100km, the yard was a mess, garbage, shingles, toy pools, wishing wells and leaves everywhere.
Step 1: Get New Shingles
In our case it was a laminated NY Driftwood bundle for 25 dollars at RoofMart.

Step 2: Set Up
Then set up a ladder and bucket system, in the bucket you will probably need
- Roofing Nails
- Fulcrum for prying (2x4)
- Shingles, (one at a time. We used a vice grip tied to a rope to hoist up the shingles.
- Caulking Gun with Roof Tar Tube
Step 3: Understand Shingles
Shingles are in strips about 3 feet by 1 foot. They are attached by roofing nails (which have huge heads) and tar.
Shingles overlap so water runs off the roof.
Step 4: Remove the nails
Carefully pry up the shingle until you find the nail. Pry at it with a screwdriver until you can pry it out with a crowbar.
Don't bend the shingles back too far, as you'll break them more.
Also, remove any other nails that are exposed from the damage.
