You can use a large flat blade and hammer to gently loosen the surrounding shingles. After this, check underneath the shingles to see what is holding them down. You will want to remove whatever is holding them down to replace the shingle with the new ones. Then reconnect the shingle by hammering nails on the tar strip that is on the shingle. You can use roofing cement to reseal the loosened shingles and further prevent any more leaks.

If you need more assistance to your roof then this, then you may want to contact a professional at a roof repair service. Roof work can be very dangerous if you do not have the right equipment.
