`"bundles" = "Roof Area" / ((33.3 ft^2)"/bundle") `

Enter a value for all fields

The **Shingles for a Roof** calculator computes the number of shingle bundles (33.33 ft² each) needed to cover a common gabled roof based on the roof dimensions.

**INSTRUCTIONS:** Choose units and enter the following:

- (
**L**) Ridge Length - (
**S**) Roof Span - (
**P**) Pitch of Roof (choose one: 1/12,2/12,3/12,4/12,5/12,6/12,7/12,8/12,9/12,10/12,12/12,14/12) - (
**oH**) Overhang

**Shingle Bundles (B):** The calculator returns the following:

- Number of bundles of shingles needed to cover roof area
- Underlayment total surface area
- Linear Feet of Ridge Cap
- Linear Feet of Starter Roll (eaves and rakes)
- number of roofing nails for normal wind conditions
- number of roofing nails for high-wind conditions.

The Shingles for a Roof calculator:

- Computes the surface area of the roof.
- Adds area (+ 6") for the double layer of shingles on the first row of both sides of the roof.
- Divides the surface area by the area coverage of one bundle of shingles (33.33 ft
^{2})

The Ridge Shingles are calculate as the Ridge Length divided by 25 linear feet for a bundle of Ridge Cap Roofing Shingles

The Roofing Starter is calculated as twice the ridge length for both eaves plus then calculated length of both rakes (sloped sides).

The **Roofing Shingles Cost Survey** list the observed price of a bundle of shingles. A bundle is equal to roughly (`33 1/3 ft^2`) or one third of a roofing square (100 ft^{2}). The survey includes a date, the name of the store, the five price points for shingles: economy, low, median, high and premium.

One should use the pricing for roofing materials that can be bought locally. However, the following prices are for different quality grades of shingles in the United States:

- Shingle Price Survey Online Source : Lowes
- Shingle Price Survey Date: 12/22/22
- Cost of Premium Shingles: $90.0 USD.
- Cost of High Grade Shingles: $52.34 USD.
- Cost of Medium Grade Shingles: $43.32 USD.
- Cost of Low Grade Shingles: $37.98 USD.
- Cost of Economy Grade Shingles: $36.0 USD.

All prices are for one bundle of shingles which cover 33.33 ft^{2}.
