Bundles are packaged at a weight that is light enough for one person to carry easily. This means that heavier materials may be packaged with fewer shingles per bundle, resulting in a bundle that covers less surface space.
A better way to determine how many shingles are needed is to measure the roof and divide the measurement by 100 square feet. A square of shingles covers 100 square feet, so they are sold by the square, not by the bundle.Learn more about Building Materials

It typically takes three bundles of standard three-tab asphalt shingles to cover one square on a roof. Therefore, a 40-square roof would require approximately 120 bundles of shingles. A "roof square" is equal to 100 square feet, so each bundle covers roughly 33 1/3 square feet.Full Answer >
