Hi Ann, this is the Slate color and you can view images of this and other colors at our website: https://www.gaf.com/en-us/roofing-products/residential-roofing-products/shingles/3-tab/strip-shingles/royal-sovereign. Thanks for your interest in Royal Sovereign shingles.
The shingles are sold by the bundle.
18x24 equals 432 square feet, bundle covers 33 and 1/3, so 13 bundles if zero waste, but more likely 15 with starter shingles and ridge cap shingles.
12 inch high by 36 inch wide, but they are installed with 5 inch vertical exposure (seven inch overlap).
25 bundles will cover 833 square feet, but add 1 bundle per 81 linear feet of Gable length for starter shingles, one bundle per 33 feet ridge or hip cap and probably about 15% more bundles for waste due to cutting shingles. Try to use as much cut shingle pieces for ridge caps or piecing in field before capping hips. You should be able to return any unopened bundles for a full refund.
You'll need 45 bundles of Royal Sovereign Slate, excluding overage. Please add 10-20% for overage and waste. Thank you.
