Just measure the length and width of each plane on the roof, including dormers. Then, multiply length x width to get the square footage of each plane. Simply add the square footage of each of the planes together to derive the total square footage of your roof. For example, this flat roof has one roof plane.

Out of the total installation cost on a new flat roof, around 70% will be the cost of labor!

This includes tear off, insulation and the new roofing membrane.
Considering this, how many shingles do I need for a 24×24 garage? Three bundles are equal to one square. Each square equates to 100 square feet. In the previous example, three squares, or 300 square feet, of shingles will be needed to cover the garage roof.
The standard height of a building’s roof is 10 to 12 feet.
If you‘re planning work on a roof and don’t have the building plans, taking preliminary measurements from the ground allows you to approximate the roof area and estimate some costs. … But, you can measure a gable or flat roof from the ground with the help of an assistant.
Pitch – Is the incline of the roof represented as the ratio of rise to the span (twice the run). For example, if the roof rises 4 feet and the span is 16 feet (twice the run), then the pitch is 4/16, or 1/4.
Traditionally, a minimum roof pitch of 20° was recommended in BS 5534, but modern tiles and slates have now been designed for applications as low as 15°. It is uncommon to find a roof below 15° but for those very low pitch applications, there are interlocking clay pantiles available, suitable for use down to 12.5°.
Each bundle covers 33.3 sq. ft. of roof area—which is close enough to the 32 sq. ft.
