Don't shoot the messenger.  Too complicated for the home owner and too simplified for a roofing contractor.  Hips and valleys create waste that needs to be accounted for.  Although we talk squares, we order by the bundle, usually 3 per square.  Flashing, Ice and water, underlayment, trim, drip edge, ridge vent, starters, and I'm not even a roofer.  And don't forget removal and disposal costs when replacing a roof.

To help home owners estimate a roof, a generous estimate is all that is needed.  If they order too much, the extra can be returned.  Much better than having to pick up a couple more bundles on Monday with rain closing in.  If the estimate is to prepare them for having the work done, the contractor will use his own count anyway.
