4 bundles


I do not know anythang about fancy designer shingles but the plain Jane variety of shingles that have been around fer years are 3 bundles to the square. A square is 100 square feet or a 10 by 10 section of the roof. Lets say your roof is 20 by 30= 600 square feet so you would need approximately 6 squares plus 1 bundle for the starter strip so to be safe you would need around 19 bundles.
