How many roof tiles are there are on a roof?

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.

Your house is 1350 square feet how many shingles do you need?

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

You cannot calculate the square footage of a house roof like this (unless you have a flat roof). The simplest way would be to go up on your roof and measure its different surfaces, however if you dont want to do that, you would need to know several differen things to calculate the surface area -- such as the pitch and angel -- how much hangover you have. Basically you should save yourself time and go up on your roof and measure it
