Calculate Coverage

Use one of the 3 options below to determine how much product you need to order.

(Once you determine how much to order, you can use the Cost Calculator to determine the cost based on exposure, grade, and finishing options.)

 

Use the Coverage Calculator:

Just enter your actual measurements to get the

total quantity you need, including doubling the

first course, and the appropriate waste factors.

 

Send us your Plans or Drawings.

Email your plans or drawings, and we'll do a take-off to determine how much you need. For restoration work, we can usually determine how much you need from photographs. Email plans and / or photos to tech@ecoshel.com.

 

Calculate the Coverage Yourself.

Follow the steps below to determine how much product you need.

Coverage

Calculator

1.  Measure the house to determine the square footage.

Subtract for door and window areas.

Add one course to the height because the first course is doubled.

For gables, add about 1 foot to the base and height for angled cut waste.

Add 3-5% percent for general waste, depending on the complexity of the job.

Ecoshel cut-offs are used at the beginning and end courses, so there is very little waste.

 

2.  Convert area in square feet to area in "squares".

Siding and roofing is purchased in squares. One square = 100 square feet.

 

3.  Determine the "exposure" you will use.

Exposure is the height of each course - how much height of the shingles will show.

Maximum recommended roofing exposure for 18" shingles is 5-1/2".

Maximum recommended siding exposure for 18" shingles is 7-1/2".

Maximum recommended roofing exposure for 24" Tapersawn Shakes is 7".

A larger exposure will require less product which lowers the cost.
