Hi all, I am new here...and fairly new to the roofing business as well.
Just a quick question, does anyone know approx. how many shingles of the GAF Timberline come in a bundle?

Thanks!

Thanks for your quick reply. That is what I thought, but what I really want to know is how many actual shingles come in the bundle?

Usually 26 shingles per bundle, sometimes 25.

If your a roofing contractor you should introduce your self in the Contractor Talk forum and ask future questions about your/our trade there.
This is a sister forum gauged toward home owners seeking advice in DIY projects or questions about hiring contractors to do it for them.

Metric sizes or US Standard measurement sizes?

Also, with your User Name, are you a Member of RSI, Roofers Success International?

That "Joey" for your avatar is one of their trademarked logo Images.

Ed, No I am not, I found that Kangaroo on Google images and just copied it as I found it suited the name. I suppose I should remove it? Oops

It depends on which timberline shingle you are using. The heavier wieght (longer warranty) shingles come four bundles to a square.

It was very close to the one, but not actually the same.

But for your reading pleasure and visual enjoyment, please check out one of our internet friends website to see why I said what I did.

GAF Timberline Shingles


I have GAF timberline 30 shingles which are labeled as 3 bundles = 1 square and "at least 20 shingles per bundle" and '5 5/8" exposure per course'.

Actually, each bundle contains 20 shingles. A shingle is 39 1/4" long and is suitable for 5 1/2" exposure. That works out to 30 sq ft per bundle or 10% less than labeled.
Even if applied with 5 5/8" exposure which reveals slightly more than obviously intended, a bundle covers less than 30.7 sq ft which is 3 bundles per 92 sq ft.

Did I compute incorrectly? OR Is there a class action regarding this fraud? Is GAF offering any kind of refund?

please be more specific as to what is incorrect

39.25" x 5.5" x 20 pc/bundle / 144 sq in/sq ft = ~30 sq ft/bundle

So the longer life shingles have less per bundle? I thought 3/sq was some kinda standard, this means I have to buy more bundles yet the per bundle price is a bit more.
