Our tool allows you to outline roofs, identify roof features / edges, identify the pitch of each facet, and add pins to roof attributes that will help you price your roofing project!
You can then download your Roof Measurement report to help you better understand your roofing project.
Roofr Measurements, first demonstrated at the International Roofing Expo in Nashville, TN, February 11-13, 2019, provides access to high definition satellite and aerial imagery and allows contractors to outline and measure edges, assign slope, and pinpoint attributes of a roof. Contractors will also be able to upload drone images or blue prints to measure. Roofers will also have the option to purchase premium imagery for between $2-$4/image. Once mapping is completed, Roofr Measurements provides a final, downloadable report on the area, pitch, direction, and edge lengths of the roof. These reports help roofing contractors determine how much roofing material to purchase, the amount of time the project will take, and the total cost to the customer.
A roof cannot be surveyed properly without recognizing the slope. Disparate types of roofs have different slopes. For example, the slope of a gable roof will look very different from the slope of an A-frame roof or Bonnet roof. The slope of a roof is also referred to as the pitch. The slope or pitch is ascertained by the perpendicular rise in inches for every horizontal 12-inch length of the run.
To determine slope, you or a professional will measure the exact vertical rise over a horizontal distance of 12-inches. The vertical rise is measured in inches as well. If this ascent is 4-inches, then your roof slope as determined as being 4-in-12. Roof slopes or pitch are essentially always detailed with the vertical rise disclosed first and the horizontal run brought up after.
Our ambition is to provide our customers with the richest source of geospatial data imaginable – anywhere, anytime, in any format.
Contractors will also be able to upload drone images or blueprints to measure. Once mapping is completed, the user receives a final, downloadable report on the area, pitch, direction, and edge lengths of the roof, which helps determine how much roofing material to purchase, the amount of time the project will take, and the total cost to the customer.
You can also try to count the amount of shingling currently on your roof in order to figure out how much area it covers. This is helpful if you are trying to replace the shingles on your roof. You can use a shingle count method or a sheet count method. The shingle count is based off of each three tab singles and the sheet count is based off of the panels of shingles needed for each side of the roof. These two measuring methods are most commonly used when one is trying to reroof their house.
Free roof measuring app
RoofSnap is software for roofers and contractors for measuring roofs. Some services offer to sell you an expensive measurement report for each address. Then, you wait and wait. With RoofSnap, you don’t have to wait or worry about trusting the accuracy of measurements created by someone else. No one cares about the accuracy of your measurements as much as you do, which is why RoofSnap puts the technology in your hands so that you can take back your roof measurements.
RoofSnap integrates with aerial imagery sources. The sketch tool in RoofSnap allows you to draw and label all the lines of the roof, including complex architecture and overhangs. Once all of the roof facets are created, enter in the pitch values and RoofSnap does all of the math to calculate surface area and linear measurements. You can then export your own PDF report of the measurements and all of the imagery. This report will include your company logo and info, fully customized by you, ready to send to your customer, insurance adjuster, or production team. For the average 30SQ roof, this takes about 5 minutes.
Most roofers feel like they need to go to every estimate and then measure the roof and most of the time it s a good idea to go to every estimate but this free tool will give you. As all free services we recommend the user take his or her time creating the measurements and estimates to ensure the highest accuracy possible. I been using this method for awhile. This can make it even safer to do your measuring and it also removes a level of guessing to your calculation.
