When shopping for shingles, first measure the roof. Asphalt shingles are those used most often on homes and are generally the least expensive. Shingles are sold in squares, and one square is equal to 100 square feet. Consider the weather when purchasing shingles, and buy shingles that can stand up the different weather situations of a particular area. Take into account the longevity of the shingles and if the new roofing can add resale value to the home.
