Hello owl62553 and welcome to the Community.


What you will need to recover that shingled shed roof, first depends if you need to replace the sheeting (plywood) or not.  If so you will need ½ inch plywood and some common nails 4d or 6d, felt paper either (15# or 30#) and shingles.  One bundle of a 25 or 30 year shingle covers 33.3 sq. feet, 30# felt covers about 215 sq. ft. and a sheet of plywood covers 32 sq. ft.  Multiply the width of shed times the slop of your roof then times 2 and you will have your square footage.  Divide the total square footage by the different amounts for felt, shingle or plywood.  You will also need staples for the felt and roofing nails. That’s pretty much it. 


Let me know if you need more information.
