What are Satellite Roof Measurements?
Satellite Roof Measurement are measurements taken from an aerial view of your home. The measurements are then calculated with software. You can actually do this on google maps with the aerial view of the house. There is even a measuring tool that can tell you how many feet by how many feet the roof is.
If the house is not actually square then you have to add each section together. Many roofers add 10 % of the whole measurement to make sure they have enough materials. This helps if you are going to the home improvement store and have to know how many shingles you need.
Knowing the measurement helps you know how much of the other materials you need as well. Most materials for roofs are broken down by square footage. This way you will not end up buying too little or way too much. It always good to buy a little extra.
