42 bundles using a 10% waste factor and assuming you have the easiest of easy roofs to replace. You'll also need underlayments, Ice & Water shield in some areas, proper venting(1 vent per 375/sq ft) and various other accessories

Depends on the shingle at the end of the day but I am going to assume 4 bundles per square.

At that measurement, you need to figure on 52 bundles at a 10% waste.

You still need starters, Hip/Ridge, and other consumables too.

if you are calculating 4 bundles per square(which is new to me), there is no need for a waste factor

Answered 6 years ago by cewoodford


Most of the dimensional shingles are 3 bundles per square but is the poster is talking about a Triple laminate or other architectural shingles, they can run anywhere from 4 to 6 bundles a square.

If you are talking about the sf of the home you can not give a goood answer. It is the size of the roof! You need to measure the slope of each side of the roof by the length to come up with the sf of the roof. Most roofing is 4 bundles per 100 sf for dimensionals plus waste of about 20 to 30 per cent or 3 per square for regular shingles.

Here is a link to a prior question on this subject - good info on things to remember, why you need extra shingles, etc.

Note different manufacturers have different coverage per bundle - I even ran across one job where a square (100 SF) was not an even number of bundles - drove the roofer crazy till he realized they had shipped in metric shingles from Canada.
