To find the sq. ft of a roof you have to measure the length and the width and multiply those figures together. Then you divide that figure by 100 and it will tell you how many squares of shingles it will take to cover it.

Multiply the length times the width.

The area is 8*6 = 48 square feet

The square footage of your house is not the same as the square footage of your roof if there is any pitch. If you are asking aboutasphalt shingles, generally each bundle covers 33.3 square feet. Therefore find the square footage of your roof, divide it by 33.3 to find the number of bundles, then multiply the original square footage by 5-10% to get the number of additional bundles for cutoffs and starter strip. The variation in percentage accounts for the number and length of valleys of the roof. Example:[@5%]roof =1500 ft2 --> (1500/33.3=45.05) (1500x.05=75 -->75/33.3=2.25)45.05 + 2.25= (48) bundles

measure the square footage first. one square of shingles (3 bundles) covers 100 sqft. divide the square footage by 100 and that's how many squares of shingles you need (be sure to buy enough extra to cap the roof with and compensate for waste at the ends. (starter and ender shingles)

There are 3 bundles of shingles in every square. A square is 100 square feet. In 23 bundles, you would have 766 square feet approximately

That really depends on several different variables including the square footage of the roof itself and the size / type of the tiles being used. Most of the time when buying roofing tiles / shingles it will state on the packaging how many square's it will cover. It should also state the "square footage" covered as well. So once you have your square footage you can then figure out how many tiles / shingles it will take to cover your roof. Don't forget to add 10 to 15% for waste in your calculations.
