Cool

I'm not a pro roofer, but measure from side to side, top to bottom, and add 10% (for trim-and-waste, leftover match, etc.).
Try to plan to keep at least two matching shingle squares for future storm damage. (You can never match the colors, usually.) One of the pros in here can give you better advice, but that's my experience.
Good Luck!
Mike
