too few shingles per bundle
I have GAF timberline 30 shingles which are labeled as 3 bundles = 1 square and "at least 20 shingles per bundle" and "5 5/8" exposure per course". Actually, each bundle contains 20 shingles. A shingle is 39 1/4" long and is suitable for 5 1/2" exposure. That works out to 30 sq ft per bundle or 10% less than labeled. Even if applied with 5 5/8" exposure which reveals slightly more than obviously intended, a bundle covers less than 30.7 sq ft which is 3 bundles per 92 sq ft. Did I compute incorrectly? OR Is there a class action regarding this fraud? Is GAF offering any kind of refund?
please be more specific as to what is incorrect39.25" x 5.5" x 20 pc/bundle / 144 sq in/sq ft = ~30 sq ft/bundle
So the longer life shingles have less per bundle? I thought 3/sq was some kinda standard, this means I have to buy more bundles yet the per bundle price is a bit more.
printed on the package is 3 bundles per square, i.e., 33.33 sq ft per bundle. Actual contents of package is 30 sq ft

If you go through 1000 consecutive bundles and find each bundle two shingles short of the norm "22" you may have a legal standing to accuse them of fraud, but if it happens once or twice in several thousand bundles than it"s an exceptable mechanical/machinery error that happens from time to time.
