linear feet calculation

Postby tom101 » Thu Feb 02, 2006 9:08 am

Can some tell me the linear METERS needed of a roofing material that is 3 feet wide to cover my fiancees roof the is 24 feet by 26 feet on each half of the roof?

24 feet is-7.3152meters------26 feet is 7.9248meters square meter per half comes to 57.97 or so i believe for half the roof

24' (width of roof) / 3' (width of material) = 8 rows of material, so 8 * 26' (roof length) = 208'. 208' * 0.3048 (meters conversion) = 63.4 * 2 (sides of the roof) = 126.8 linear meters of material to cover the roof but alas . . .

. . . we're both wrong. Roofing material has to overlap to prevent leaks. You'll need to talk to a roofer. :D
