- Each pack of roofing shingles will cover an area of 3 m²
- For flat roofs, the calculation is: length x breadth / 3
- For Apex roofs we use an approximate calculation of length x breadth x 1.3 / 3 giving the number of packets needed which also includes enough for a double layer on the first row and enough to complete the ridges. This is a ROUGH calculation.

Log Cabins and Garden Buildings Installation
We do not see the need for the placement of a membrane roofing felt or IKO underlay for all garden buildings as it is not usually necessary for leisure buildings and has not been a recommended solution for over 15 years.
IKO now DO recommend this.
They are, however, recommending IKO Glass Fibre Underlay 20m (Type 3B), similar to a standard roofing felt and if you are choosing to use a membrane we would recommend felt over the IKO membrane.
We leave this up to you the customer to decide if you need an extra layer of felt or membrane under your shingles. Whatever you require we can supply the shingles and roofing felt. Please see the Roofing Felt page.
The purpose of a membrane is in case your roof shingles lift, the roof will still have protection.
Each tile has a bitumen strip which melts in the heat of the sun securing your shingles. As an option, we offer Roof Felt Shingle Glue, and IKO also recommends this. We recommend that you use bitumen glue on the ridge tiles and the first leading edge roof tiles. We recommend Shingle glue is used especially in the colder months as it takes longer for the bitumen glue to melt. Shingle glue is also highly recommended in highly exposed locations.
Shingles are not recommended for use on gradients less than 10 degrees. If they are used the overlap needs to be more and shingle glue must be applied on every tile. Roofing Felt underneath is also necessary to guard against wicking and subsequent roof leaks.
