Measure the width and length of each plane of the roof (including dormers), and then multiply those numbers to get the correct figure for the square footage of that area. Note any skylights, chimneys or other parts of the roof that would not require materials so you can subtract those measurements from your total area.

How do you measure a roof for a light?
The most accurate method: Use a measuring tape.
Pretty simple, measure along the roofline either directly at the edge between two people on ladders, along the ground under the roofline, or while walking along the ground with a rolling measure under the roofline edge.
How do you measure a roof edge?
Measure out from the face of the wall below the fascia or rafter tails to a point that aligns with the outer edge of the roof. Multiply this measurement by the length of the roof from end to end, and add this to the first result. Double the result to determine the total area of the roof at both sides.
How are holiday lights measured?
The distance between individual lights is all over the map. Take a tape measure with you to determine the spacing between lights, and buy sets that come with less than 12 inches between bulbs. Typically, larger bulbs, like chunky C7s or C9s for the roof, look best when the lights are between 6 and 10 inches apart.
What is the difference between C9 and C7 bulbs?
The Main Difference: Size!
C7 Bulbs are much smaller than the larger C9 Bulb. C-9’s are longer, wider, and fit into a bigger socket. As you can see from the photographs above, the C7 Bulb is usually 2-1/8in in length and 7/8in in width. In comparison, the C9 Bulb measures 2-7/8in in length and 1-1/8in in width.
