Hampton Roads Shingle choices and roof sq.

I've had a few roofing contractors to my house, a single story ranch built in 1974. I have received a wide range of estimates for the number of squares needed and quite a few different shingle choices proposed. The house is 1899 sf with a gabled porch that is 15' by 12'. The initial roof I put on 20 some years ago required 30 sq. Now they tell me anywhere from 33 sq to 39 sq. The mesurement for the main house is 77'L by 39'W. Adding in the gabled porch roof that is 15' by 12' how many squares do I need. It is a 4x12 pitch.

Most likely around 35/36 square. Waste always needs to be remembered and included.

You can always order a measurement on it if you want to know for sure but Paragon's numbers sound spot on.
