    that depends on the quality of the shingles, (years/life rating). to buy enough shingles to do the job, you need to know the area of the roof, figured in what is called squares. a square is an area 10′ X10′, or 100 square feet. then decide which style of shingle you want to use, and see how many bundles they require to cover a square. you should buy enough bundles to cover the area, plus 10% more for waste, caps, and the starter course. with 3 tabs, it’s usually 3 bundles per sq., with around 27 shingles per bundle. with laminated shingles it could be 4 or 5 bundles per square, depending on quality/thickness/life span. but if you buy metric shingles, all of that might change. personally, i like to buy more than 10% extra and save the leftovers in case you need to make a repair, or suffer damage at a later date. that way you have a match in color and style, and don’t have a mismatched roof after the repair is made. good luck, i hope this helps answer your question, car dude.
