What is the going rate for roofering jobs in Texas One roofer want 50 per square 3 bundles of shingles a square?

It really depends on the style, height, and pitch of the roof. A traditional shingled gable roof with a relatively low pitch may cost about $2-5 per square foot (yes there are 3 bundles in a square, so a 3000 square foot surface area roof will take approximately 30 squares, or 90 bundles). For a recent job I did in the DFW area, the homeowner's insurance paid about $2 per square foot (or $50 per square)... low pitch & simple roof-lines. If the roof is steep (which should be less common in Texas since it does not snow often, but I think homeowners find the steep pitch visually appealing), has more hips, ridges, valleys, is on a 2-story house etc., it can cost considerably more. Hope that helps

What does a 1 on 2 pitch mean in terms of a roof?

In general, talking about roof pitch, I have never heard or read about this term being used. Roof pitch is measured when you start at the leading edge of a roof and measure towards the center of the house too 12 feet. Pitch is measured from a imaginary parallel level line at the 12 foot mark, how many feet high the roof is at 12 feet is the pitch of a roof. If your roof is at 4 feet high at the 12 foot mark then the phrase would be- a 4/12 pitch.
