I have used a software application called AssureCalc.  You can download the software at www.assurecalc.com its cheep and easy to use.

You need the roof slope/pitch to get the correct number of roof squares (meaning 10' x 10'; 100sf = 1 roofing square). Call several roofers.

The roof area as seen from the air is not the the actual area. 
The roof most likely is at an incline, and its area depends on its angle of elevation or pitch, valleys, ridges, etc.  You can do some geometry calculations if you want to figure out the exact area yourself or call a roofer to give you an estimate.

Try the county records for the house, you can usually get a sq footage of the footprint.  The should be reasonably close to the roof sq footage in a flat plane, but you should really have a roofer come give an estimate if you want a good figure.
