How to Manually Measure a Roof

  1. Measure the width and length of each plane of the roof (including dormers), and then multiply those numbers to get the correct figure for the square footage of that area.
  2. Note any skylights, chimneys or other parts of the roof that would not require materials so you can subtract those measurements from your total area.
  3. Add together the calculated square footage of each surface to get the figure for total square footage of the roof.
  4. After determining the total square footage of the roof, you must calculate the pitch of the roof by measuring the vertical distance (rise) over a 12 inch horizontal segment (run).
  5. Write down these numbers as the vertical measurement listed first and the horizontal measurement recorded second so you can find rise over run.
  6. When you have the total square footage and rise over run of the roof, you can calculate the roof squares to determine how much materials are needed to cover the roof. To calculate the number of squares on a roof, you need to divide its total square feet by 100.

With those figures, you can then estimate the roofing supplies needed for a job.

Commercial Roof Report

Praised by customers for its attention to detail, the commercial reports provide customers with superior protrusion information, as well as full parapet measurements that depict width, height, and length in addition to area. Commercial Roof Reports apply to all structures with 3 or more dwelling units, or commercial, institutional and industrial structures [i.e., churches and apartment buildings].

Unfortunately, roofers have tight windows of opportunity to operate. They can become busiest right after a hurricane, a tornado, a hailstorm, or heavy snow coupled with high winds. Your lines may be flooded with calls from damage-sustaining households across a wide area. Even in good conditions, roofing companies are required to continuously prospect, estimate and quote with detailed measurements as they compete for business, one street and neighborhood after another.

In a highly competitive business, roofers need every edge they can get. Prospective customers want accurate repair quotes—and they want them quickly. So why wouldn’t you choose a tool that can give them both and, at the same time, enable you to accelerate your business?

High-resolution aerial imagery, captured multiple times per year offering leaf-on and leaf-off views, gives roofers exceptional perspective and a distinct advantage over many competitors. If that information can be instantly accessed from any laptop, mobile or connected device, all the better.

Restoration contractors also benefit from the fact that these reports are considered the independent, third-party standard and are accepted by all major insurance carriers. This virtually eliminates disputes surrounding roof measurements and materials needed in a claim situation.

Roof measurement reports take the guesswork out of complicated measurements.

Insurance companies know that your employees aren’t trying to inflate the project, and customers can see that you’re not trying to pull one over when you present professional documentation.

Additionally, having that report as part of your official documentation saves time, and can be archived and referenced later, should that customer need more work done in the future.

Safety
Measurement reports dramatically increase the safety of your estimator or sales reps, eliminating the need for them to climb up on a roof to provide measurements and photos themselves. According to Restoration & Remediation Magazine, “In a situation where a building has been damaged, there are extreme risks involved in climbing a potentially unsafe structure…From a risk management standpoint, the reports help [contractors] be more cognizant of the dangers involved.”

Additionally, “Having the measurements, pitch, and images ahead of time helps us determine the appropriate safety gear to bring to the job.”

What Should Be Included on Your Roof Estimate?

Knowing the basics is just the start. You also need to know why these should be included in your roof estimate? You don’t want to have all of this time and money invested and not know why. Knowing this can help you figure out which roofing companies are legitimate and which roofing companies are trying to swindle you.

  • Payment Information. Every roof estimate should explain which parties are responsible for specific portions of the roof project. If specific aspects of the roofing project will be outsourced to other companies, these parties and responsibilities must be identified in detail within the estimate. Every last detail of the payment terms should be explained in-depth including information about down payments, progress payments, end payment, and payment methods. Furthermore, the estimate should include a provision for you to hold back the final payment until you are completely satisfied with the job.
  • Approximated Timeline. The estimate must spell out the project’s start date and completion date. This can change if more damage is found once the roof repair starts.
  • Costs. The roof estimate should include the cost of materials and labor. Even the cost for the pulling of permits should be noted. If the project will result in any sort of debris or a mess of any other sort, the estimate should explain if the roofing company is responsible for the cleanup and removal. 
  • Roof Estimate Materials. The best roofers are willing to explain the type of shingles, flashing, underlayment and ventilation that will be used in the project in extensive detail within the estimate. This information should be highly specific. For example, it should explain the thickness of the underlayment, the locations of the flashing, the type of sealant for areas that mandate waterproofing (nail holes, flashing etc.) and the sizes of the fasteners and nails that will be used for the project. Even the brand of the products that will be used for your roofing project should be noted. 

How Many Estimates Do You Need?

Many people say you shouldn’t undertake any type of home improvement project until you’ve gathered three estimates. The reality is that you should get as many estimates as you need to make an informed decision you can feel good about.

When you talk to roofing companies, ask how long they’ve been in business, what kind of experience they have and how much your project will cost. You can usually judge the quality of their customer service based on their answers. Instead of limiting yourself to a set number of estimates, consider roofing companies until you find the best one for your project.
