If you are in the market for a new roof and seeking bids from contractors, you might have come across the term roofing square.
A roofing square is simply a measurement used by roofing contractors that helps make estimates and communication between suppliers and contractors much easier. Basically, a roofing square is a 10 foot x 10 foot block, or 100 square feet. A qualified roofer will be able to quickly measure your roof and determine how many squares are needed for the job, without having to spend extra time doing unnecessarily calculations. This will help determine how many bundles of shingles or how much material is necessary for the job, quickly and effectively.
