What is a roofing ‘square’?

Have you ever wondered what a ‘square’ is in terms of roofing?  A square is 100 square feet.  The amount of roofing materials is usually measured in squares.  Therefore a roof with 3600 square feet requires 36 ‘squares’ of materials.  Therefore, when an estimator comes out to view your property and measure the roof, they will estimate how many ‘squares’ of materials they will need for the project.  This number is then factored into the total estimate for the cost of the work.  See?  Now you know what they are all talking about when they talk about ‘squares’…36 squares, 27 squares, 23 squares, 45 squares…get it?
