Just so, how many square feet are in a bundle of shingles?

If the shingles you are using come three bundles to asquare, calculating the number of bundles you'll need is simple.Each bundle covers **33.3** sq. ft. of roof area—closeenough to the 32 sq. ft. a sheet covers. So just order one bundlefor each sheet of roof sheathing.

Likewise, how many bundles of shingles do I need for 1500 square feet? Asphalt **shingles** are typically packaged with thisin mind, but if a package of **shingles** covered an entire 100**square foot square**, it would be too heavy to handle. So,most popular **shingles** are sold such that three**bundles** are needed to **cover** one **square** of roofarea.

Moreover, how many bundles of shingles do I need for 100 square feet?

The **square footage** of a roof is normally measuredin "squares" of **100 feet**. Each **square** will**need** three **bundles of shingles** to cover it. Find thetotal **square footage** of your roof by multiplying the widthby the length and then divide that number by **100** and youwill get the number of squares you **need** tocover.

How do I figure out how many bundles of shingles I need?

Divide the total footage by 100 to determine the numberof “squares” in the roof. Determine the **bundles ofshingles** needed to cover the roof. It takes three**bundles** to cover a square if **you** use 3-tab**shingles**, the most common type.
