What is a Roofing Square?

What is a Square in Roofing?

If you’re speaking with us about a new roof project, you may hear us mention from time to time a “roofing square”. Now, just what is a roofing square? We’re glad you asked! In this post, we’ll be exploring what a roofing square is, what a bundle of shingles is, how many shingles are in a bundle, and ultimately determining which roofing style is right for you. Enjoy!

What is a Roofing Square in Measurement?

A roofing square in measurement terms is an area of your roof which makes up 10 ft. x 10 ft. Thai in total produces 100 sq. ft. of space. The number of “roofing squares'' helps us determine how much material to order for your roofing project. A roofing square basically helps make our jobs easier when we proceed with the process of ordering materials and determining next best steps to provide you with the best new roof possible.

What is a Bundle of Shingles?

A bundle of shingles consists of the standard amount of shingles a manufacturer includes when they package the product itself. This also helps us determine how many bundles of shingles we should order when we’re restoring your roof with a fantastic new roof installation.

How Many Shingles are in a Bundle?

This number varies by the specific manufacturer of roofing materials, yet we often see a “bundle” of shingles consisting of around enough material to cover about one-third of a roofing square. This means we'll typically need to order around three “bundles” of shingles for each roofing square we need to place roofing materials on.

What’s the Right Roofing Style for You?

This question won’t typically affect the size or amount of roofing material we need to do the job, yet it’s an important question to ask as you begin the process of redoing your roof. The right style of roofing is different for everybody, so choose how you’d like it to look, and we can help every step of the way!
