**three**-tabbed shingles and laminated shingles require four, or sometimes five, bundles to cover a square. When shingles come three bundles to the square, there are 29 standard-sized shingles (12 in. by 36 in.) in each bundle.

Similarly, it is asked, how many square feet are in a bundle of architectural shingles?

If the shingles you are using come **three** bundles to a square, calculating the number of bundles you'll need is simple. Each bundle covers 33.3 sq. ft.

**bundles**make a SQUARE. Two squares (so you'll have a little extra; just return any unopened

**bundles**). Remember, the roof will be bigger than the footprint of the

**shed**itself.

Just so, how many bundles of shingles do I need for 1600 square feet?

A **bundle of shingles** covers 33.3 **sq**. ft. 1,700 / 33.3 + 10% for trim = 57 **bundles**. A **bundle of shingles** covers 33.3 **sq**.

Retail **price** for 25-year, 3-tab **shingles** is about $25 to $30 per **bundle**, plus tax. You need three **bundles** per square, so the total **price** is around $75 to $90 per square. For architectural **shingles**, the retail **price** jumps to about $33 to over $52 per **bundle**, or $100 to $160 per square.
