THINKING OF REPLACING YOUR ROOF? SOME INFORMATION YOU MAY FIND HELPFUL
Before we talk materials, let's talk terminology. Roofers don't usually use the measure "square feet," rather they talk in squares. A square is their basic unit of measurement-one square is 100 square feet in area, the equivalent of a 10-foot by 10-foot square. The roof of a typical two-story, 2,000-square-foot ho...use with a gable roof will consist of less than 1,500 square feet of roofing area, or about fifteen squares.
