How to Calculate Total Square Footage of Your Roof. To find your roof’s total square footage: Measure the length and width of each plane on the roof (including dormers) then multiply length times width. Add the square footage of each of the planes together.

How do you convert square feet into squares of roofing?

Roof¬†surfaces are measured in ‚Äúsquares.‚ÄĚ A¬†square¬†is an area of¬†roof¬†which measures 100¬†square feet. To determine the number of¬†squares¬†on the gable¬†roof¬†above, simply divide its total of 24,000¬†square feet¬†by 100. The result is 240, and this means you would need 240¬†squares¬†of¬†shingles¬†to cover that¬†roof.

How many square feet does a square of shingles cover?

100 sq. ft.
A square of shingles is the quantity needed to cover 100 sq. ft. of roof. Shingles are packaged in paper- or plastic-wrapped bundles designed to be light enough for a person to carry, so heavier shingles require more bundles per square.
