Hi cotehomeimp,


Thank you for your question and welcome to our community.


Each bundle of cedar shingles should cover about 33.3 Sq. Ft. or 4 bundles for a roof square which is 100 Sq. Ft.  Since the roof of your shed is 8 X 8=164 Sq. Ft. you will need at least 5-6  bundles of cedar shingles to complete you project.

It is always a good idea to get more than what you initially calculate to cover the “OPPS” factor.  It is better to have a little extra than it is to be a little short.


Be sure that you pick up a chalk line and some galvanized nails for your project as well.  Please let us know if you have any further questions about your project.

Be sure to take pictures of your roofing project and share it with the community in our Project Library under “I Did This”.


This has been another of,
