RE: Dumb Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Roofing materials' weights are given per "square", and in roofing
parlance, a square is 10Ft. x 10Ft. or 100 Sq. Ft.  Typical composition
tab shingles are 235 Lb. per square and are typically furnished in 1/3
square bundles, so it takes 3 bundles per square.  Go out and impress
your roofer.

90lb roof felt!  Am I right in taking the material weight to be
90lb/ft^2?

Thanks
