Eliminate Errors

Measuring a roof for shingles is an error-prone process that often results in miscalculations. Aerial measurement reports eliminate manual errors so you can be assured you have accurate numbers from the very start. Eliminate material shortages and overages once and for all, resulting in money savings for your roofing business.

Estimating your Roof Size: Please use this guide to estimate your actual roof area. Your garage and patio also need to be added to estimate the actual roof area. COMMONLY, your net roof area is about 25% greater than your living square footage.

Pitch (Slope) of Roof: This is the rise/run in feet. The larger the slope, the greater your actual roof area.

 Pitch (slope) Roof Angle Area % Increase

 3/12 14.04 1.04
 4/12 18.43 1.06

Roofing Materials

The purpose of calculating the precise measurements of a roof is to ensure that the appropriate amount of roofing materials are ordered – whether you have a shingles roof, gable roof or metal roof. Here are some common roofing materials and considerations for each:


Shingles are typically sold in bundles. Depending on the type and brand of shingle, it may take a different number of bundles to make a square. When cost comparing shingles, remember to base price on squares and not on bundles.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is typically sold by the sheet or panel. To determine the number of sheets or panels necessary to cover the roof, divide the width of the roof by the sheet or panel coverage width.

Other Roofing Materials

The basic square footage and length calculations detailed above should help estimate overall cost for other materials. Additional roofing materials that should be accounted for include items such as leak barrier, deck protection, drip edge, rake edge, ridge vents, and hip and ridge caps.
