How to calculate the amount of roof tiles and accessories required for your roof project

ROOF TILE CALCULATION

Example

Tile quantity calculation

If your roof square meter area is 100sqm

Each square meter requires 2,15 tiles

Take the roof sqm of 100 X 2,15 tiles = 215 tiles

The Theoretical number of tiles required are 215 tiles

Add a tile cutting loss of 10% to the 215 tiles to allow for cutting loss during installation

10% additional tiles to allow for cutting loss = 21,5 tiles

The total number of tiles required for a 100sqm  roof is: 215 + 21,5 = 236,5 tiles

You can thus order 237 tiles or rounded off to 240 tiles

ACCESSORY CALCULATION

Example

Angle ridge cap calculation

Measure the total ridge lengths on the roof, eg. 60m

Each ridge cap length is 2 meter long

Take the 60m and devide it by 2m = 30 

You will thus theoretically require 30 pieces of Angle ridges

Add additional 10% to allow for overlapping 

Additional 10% = 3 Angle ridges

Your total number of Angle ridges required is:

30 + 3 = 33 Angle ridges

You can thus order 33 Angle ridges

 

The FIDDLER™ roof tiles require a minimum roof pitch of 12 degrees.
