We have a small cabin, with a roof area of about 1300 sq feet. We have just learned that we will need a new shingle roof soon. I need to know some "basics" regarding amount of shingles needed, so that I can ballpark the materials cost and have some other information.
Here are my questions:
1. How many squares are in a bundle ? (these are going to be architectural shingles)
2. How many square feet will a square (or a bundle) cover ?
3. This cabin is located in the Blue Ridge Mtns of the Southeast. Is there any "barkpark" estimate of the going rate for replacing roofing per square, or per bundle ?
4. I suppose that accurate answers to questions 1 and 2 will give me a good approximation of how many bundles of shingles I will need to buy.
Thanks for any help !!
