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

The FIDDLER™ roof tiles require a minimum roof pitch of 16 degrees



Tile quantity calculation

If your roof square meter area is 100sqm

Each square meter requires 2,2 tiles

Take the roof sqm of 100 X 2,2 tiles = 220 tiles

The Theoretical number of tiles required are 220 tiles

Add a tile cutting loss of 10% to the 220 tiles to allow for cutting loss during installation

10% additional tiles to allow for cutting loss = 22 tiles

The total number of tiles required for a 100sqm  roof is: 220 + 22 = 242 tiles

You can thus order 242 tiles



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
