hobbies and interests woodworking# How big is the roof on a 2000 sq ft house?

House by Square Foot | Roof by Square Foot | Re-Roofing Cost* |
---|---|---|

1,800 | 1,897 | $6,700 - $9,500 |

1,900 | 2,003 | $7,000 - $10,000 |

2,000 | 2,108 | $7,400 - $10,500 |

2,500 | 2,635 | $9,000 - $13,000 |

Keeping this in view, how many squares does it take to roof a 2000 square foot home?

Each 100 **square feet** of **roof is** one **roof square**. So you have to divide **house** area by 100. If your **house** area **is 2000 square feet**, the number of **roofing square** for the **roof** will be 20.

**roof square footage**is what we (

**square footage**to that 1,500

**sq**. ft. number.

Considering this, what is the average size of a house roof?

The average residential roof size in the US is about 1,700 square **feet** or 17 squares, although there are many larger homes with roofs that are twice as large. All professional roofers use “squares” to measure and estimate roofs. A square is equal to 100 square **feet** of the 3-dimensional roof surface.

Since there are twenty six **shingles** in a **bundle** of twenty year **shingles** (which is fine for starters and edges), divide the result by twenty six. For the number of ridge caps, multiply the length of the hip or ridge by twelve and divide it by five. This house is **1000 square feet**. It requires 18 squares of **shingles**.
