The Area of a Roof Section calculator computes the area (square feet), and number of bundles of shingles for a roof section based on the dimensions (see diagram).

The surface area of the Roof Section described above is equal to the area of a trapezoid. The important aspect is that the top (T) and bottom (B) lines are roughly parallel, no two sides are the same length, and no one side is greater than the sum of the other three. The top or the bottom can be longer.
