How much would you estimate this roof repair job?

To repair a 1 foot diameter hole in a garage roof. Replace one 4x8 plywood sheething at the bottom and end of roof and replace shingles, or patch if possible. Don't care if shingles don't match perfectly.

Remover the shingles and see how far out the damage is.
Looks like you have some odd ball metric shingles.

If I was going to do it? $500. It's a nice round number.

It's a simple DIY 101 fix. Save the money and do it yourself.
A hammer, flat bar, a ciruler saw, some roofing nails, cat's paw to remove the nails, shingles and tar paper is all you need.

May need some plywood, too. Replace the plywood to cross at least three rafters to prevent bowing of the plywood.
