# Mansard Roof Wood Shingles

The Mansard Roof Wood Shingles Calculator is a comprehensive tool designed to calculate the square footage of a Mansard-style roof's upper and lower roofs and determine the number of wood shingle bundles needed for the lower roof. By inputting building dimensions, eaves overhang, roof slopes, and bundle coverage, users can obtain precise calculations to plan their roofing projects efficiently.

A Mansard roof is a four-sided Gambrel style Hip roof.

#### Calculator

1. enter the length of the building in feet and inches
2. the width of the building in feet and inches
3. the overhang of the eaves in inches
4. the upper roof pitch as a ratio (e.g., 2 for a 2/12 pitch)
5. the lower roof pitch as a ratio (e.g., 12 for a 12/12 pitch)
6. the length of the lower roof in feet and inches
7. enter the number of bundles it takes for one square( 100ft²)
8. the percentage of waste to account for in the calculation

#### Results

1. the area of the lower section of the Mansard roof in square feet
2. the area of the upper roof in square feet
3. the combined area of the upper and lower roofs in square feet
4. the length of the four lower roof hips in lineal feet
5. the perimeter of the lower roof for the starter strip in lineal feet
6. the number of bundles needed to cover the lower roof area
7. additional bundles needed to account for waste
8. the total number of bundles required for the lower roof, including waste

### Shingle Types:

• Wood Shingles: Ideal for Mansard roofs, wood shingles provide a classic look and are available in various sizes and styles.
• Wood Shakes: Thicker and more textured than shingles, wood shakes offer a rustic appearance and are typically used for the lower roof sections.
