Asphalt shingles should be relatively easy to replace. The video will explain the tools you need. Most importantly, you will need a crowbar to help you pry up the shingles without damaging them. Be sure to pry up the shingles all around the damaged ones. Then use your flat bar to lift the nail holding it in place. This will allow you to remove the shingle and replace it with a new sheet.
