Don’t Forget to Include Chimneys and Skylights
There are a couple of things you will also need to label and measure beyond the basics like any porches that might be attached to your main roof.
Anything that protrudes from your roof should be taken into account. This could be a chimney or piping, but a good rule of thumb is to measure the dimensions of anything that protrudes from the roof.
Also, don’t forget about skylights or other recessed areas.
Basically, anything that breaks up the smooth plane of the roof should be added to your drawing and labeled with measurements.
When you want to start shopping around for quotes on a new metal roof, you face several big questions: How many square feet is your roof? How many peaks and valleys do you have? How do you even get up on the roof?
Maybe, you’re a contractor and you went out to a home to you can provide a quote. You went there to measure a roof for metal or shingles but forgot to take a few critical measurements. You’re dreading driving back out there.
The good news is there is a way to measure your roof in a safe and accurate way, all from the comfort of your home: use Google Earth. With just a few clicks, you can search for any address, get a bird’s eye view of your roof, and get the roofing measurements that you need.
You’re a few simple steps away from your aerial roof measurements (and a better back!):
- Enter Your Details: Give us your name, email, and phone number so we can contact you.
- Enter Your Address: Let us know which roof to measure.
- Leave Notes: Tell us to exclude the garage or anything else we should know before sending your measurements.
- Confirm Your Address: Hey, we just want to know we’re measuring the right house!
That’s it! Just proceed to the payment page (if necessary), and you’ll get your measurements instantly. See, wasn’t that way better than spending all day on the roof in the hot sun?
From there, you’ll create your free toolbox account where you’ll have access to your measurements and a ton of tools to make your roof project easier, cheaper, and faster.
