Hover vs. Eagleview Roofing

Aerial vs. Onsite

We are now at the point where we can give someone a home improvement estimate without having to lay a hand on the house.

This is because companies like HOVER allow us to get a fully rendered and measured 3D model of any home simply by transforming photos taken with your smartphone. This has helped contractors and insurance carriers to become more efficient, reduce their costs, and minimize closing times all through an app.

The accuracy of onsite measurements is more accurate than a plane flying hundreds of feet higher. The aerial measurements are usually rounded to the nearest foot rather than the in-person measurements where they get down to the inch.

How to use the google maps area calculator tool to measure a roof

Special precautions must be taken when measuring the area of a roof. The images that appear on google maps are often at a slight angle, which combined with the angle of a roof can cause errors. For this reason it is best to outline the roof at points which are all at the same elevation. On a simple house for instance you would only click on the corners of the roof and not on any points along the peak as that would cause an error. After measuring the area of the footprint you can estimate the actual roof area based on the angle of the roof. Similarly if you using the area calculator tool to measure a roof with multiple levels, you should do the individual section separately. The google maps area calculator is not 100% accurate. Do not rely on this tool as your only resource in making important decisions.

Measuring a roof of blueprints ?

What Is a Blueprint?

A blueprint is a two-dimensional set of drawings that provides a detailed visual representation of how an architect wants a building to look. Blueprints typically specify a building’s dimensions, construction materials, and the exact placement of all its components.

The word “blueprint” originated in the mid-nineteenth century when engineering drawings were printed on blue paper with white lines. In the modern construction industry, physical blueprints typically aren’t blue. Construction drawings, construction plans, building plans, house plans, floor plans, and working drawings are all types of blueprints.

Making a list of all components that will be essential for creating can certainly help you decide your budget ahead of time.

A shed will be able to deliver precious storage area for your machinery or function as a work area or merely as an additional room near your home.

Hold out for a day or two following building prior to you color or stain the edifice so that timber dries out completely.

Check length of diagonals immediately after building the wall frames to confirm it is accurately square.

Roofing blueprints include:

  • Roof Type
  • Roof Materials
  • Roof Ridge Covering
  • Roof Ventilation
  • Roof Overhang
  • Roof Pitch

It will be difficult, if not impossible, to pull off a new roof construction or installation without a comprehensive blueprint that takes into account all factors listed above.

For example, the pitch of a roof is critically important to shield a structure and involves detailed calculations. A roof pitch will be determined by the run and rise of a roof and angled to form the slope of a structure. Even a flat roof can have a slope of up to 10°.

The type of roof pitch in your blueprint will help you to determine which roofing materials you select.

Heavier roofing materials like clay and slate tile will need a steeper slope for support and proper overlay; roof pitch should also be adjusted to reduce snow load in colder climates to prevent water accumulation or collapse.

How to Measure a Roof From the Ground

If you’re planning work on a roof and don’t have the building plans, taking preliminary measurements from the ground allows you to approximate the roof area and estimate some costs. Measuring hip roofs, dormer roofs or roofs on hillside homes from the ground requires experience and special equipment. But, you can measure a gable or flat roof from the ground with the help of an assistant.

Method 1: Counting asphalt shingles to measure your roof area from the ground.

Most asphalt shingles are three feet wide with three tabs. Each tab is got 5 inches of reveal. So by counting these in digital photos you can come up with pretty reliable dimensions. If there is any doubt on the shingle dimensions, you can calibrate the method by measuring a typical shingle in a lower, accessible location.

Method 2. Pythagorean Theorem.

Measure the horizontal run of the roof surface from the ground (‘a’ in the third figure below). Then count the number of shingles to the peak of the roof. Multiple the number of shingles times the width of each shingle (which you can measure at ground level) to get ‘b’ in the figure below. Then calculate the line length of the roof (‘c’ in the figure) using the Pythagorean Theorem; c = square root (a squared + b squared). It is also easy to calculate the roof angle by taking the inverse tangent of b divided by a.

With these simple tricks you can measure your roof area from the ground.  

Roofing Calculator

How Roof Pitch is Calculated

To accurately calculate the area of your roof, you must first determine its slope, or pitch. A roof’s pitch is determined by how much it rises vertically for every foot it runs horizontally. Thus, a moderate “6 in 12” roof pitch means that the roof rises 6 inches vertically for every 12 horizontal inches it runs. A “12 in 12” pitch is a steep, 45-degree angle roof. See the image below for more explanation on rise, run and pitch.

Three Easy Ways To Measure Your Roof’s Pitch

Pitch Measurement Method 1

Roof Pitch Calculator

1. On a ladder beside the roof, place the level a foot or so up the roof, hold it level, and measure from the 12-inch mark on the level’s bottom, straight down to the roof. If this distance measures 4 inches, you have a 4 in 12 pitch; 8 inches and you have an 8 in 12 pitch.

Pitch Measurement Method 2

Roof Calc

2. On a ladder at the gable end of your house, place the level against the gable trim, flat against the side of the house. Now measure from the 12-inch mark of the level up to the bottom edge of the gable trim. This distance is the roof’s rise.

Pitch Measurement Method 3

3. In the attic, place the level against a rafter with the 12-inch mark on the bottom of the rafter. Measure from the end of the level up to the bottom edge of the rafter. That is the roof’s ris

How to Measure a Roof

If you’re determined to tackle a roofing job yourself, it will be important to calculate the exact square footage of your roof in order to know how much material you’ll need. After taking a few simple measurements, you can figure out the area of your roof by sketching a rough diagram and breaking the roof up into smaller sections, which you can then add together to get your square footage grand total. If getting onto your roof isn’t an option, you can also estimate its size from the ground by measuring the area of the exterior walls and multiplying that number by the roof’s slope.

Most roofing contractors typically measure a roof by calculating the area of a roof and then adding on 10% for possible waste. When roofing contractors are in high demand such as they are in Florida after a hurricane, this way of estimating a roof may be okay, but in a tighter market you may need to have sharper estimating skills in order to compete with your competitors and make a profit. Here I’ll show you how to get a quick, and highly accurate roof estimate on all types of roofs.

Before submitting a bid for any roofing job, you need to know what the materials will cost. In order to know how much materials you’ll need you must know the size of the roof. First you will need to measure the total area of the roof. Then you will need to measure the lengths of the ridges, rakes (gables), hips, valleys, & eaves. If the job is a new construction roof installation you may be able to get the measurements from the blueprints; however, if the roof is a roof replacement or roof repair then you will need to measure the roof yourself.

Slope

  1. You’ll also need to measure the slope, or angle, of your roof.
  2. To do this, position your ladder near the top point of your roof.
  3. With your measuring tape, measure vertically from the top point to the bottom point of your roof. (This is also called the rise.)
  4. Repeat this over 12 inches, then place the measurement over “12”. (For example: If your rise is 4 inches over 12 inches, then your slope measurement is 4/12.)

How to measure your roof area from the ground

A more accurate way to calculate the area of the roof than using Google Earth is to get outside to estimate the roof pitch and the base area of the property. Using these two figures, we can get a good idea of the shingle roof’s square footage and estimate your asphalt shingles’ needs and costs. This DIY technique can be helpful, especially if you are not comfortable getting on your roof, or if you have limited access to it.

Ground measures only work well for a gabled roof, since there are usually just two main rectangular pitches to calculate area for. For more complex roof shapes, like hip roofs, you’ll need to work with a roofer or measure from on top of the roof itself to calculate its total area.
