Anyone have any idea how many shingles are in a pack. I'm trying to figure out how many nails I need for the nail gun. My roof looks worse than Jims.

Depends on the type of shingle... 3 tab are usually 26, architectural are usually 22. Every time I have done a roof we use 4-5 nails per shingle.

I apologize for dragging back an old thread but I've still not got mine done (weather is not co-operating) and I have another question I thought I would find elsewhere but did not. Does anyone have any idea how much a pack of shingles weighs? I only want to make one trip to the dump and my trailer will only hold so much weight. I was also curious if Jim got his done yet.

Depends on which type of shingle you go with.

The 3-tab shingles, I would estimate at 70-80lb. While the architectural bundle somewhere around 90-100lb. I've never actually weighed a bundle so I can't say for certain.

a couple of years ago I lucked out, the 20year old original roof with 30year shingles was starting to show it's age and I was on the receiving end of a halestorm with tangerine sized hail....

The insurance adjuster took one look at the gallon ziplok bag of hailstones that I saved and the roofers doing the house across the street to repair damage to their roof from the same storm and at the hood of my 98 Escort that was then dimpled like a golf ball and signed off on the job.

If they're that heavy I'll have to re-think my pick up and disposal plan.

Put down a layer of Mylar before the felt paper and that will help a ton on cooling the house in the summer.
