installing replacement cedar shingles


If you want the repair to look unobtrusive, you will need to take off enough shingles to install the sheathing underneath. Then you must integrate a tarpaper cover so it's water shedding from top to bottom and side to side, just like the original tarpaper.
You don't mention the exposure you have on the shingles. The smaller the exposure, the harder it is to slide the shingles into the rows above due to the nails in the upper rows. You might be able to do it with a 14" exposure. Forget about it with a 5-6" one.
