Roofing shingles are measured in "squares". One square is 100 square feet.

*ASSUMING YOUR ROOF IS FLAT OR NEARLY FLAT*

16' x 80' = 1280 square feet. You'll need 12.8 (or 13) squares of roofing shingles.

The majority of roofing shingle bundles are 3 bundles per square.

13 squares times 3 bundles per square = 39 bundles (minimum). Good luck!
