How to Manually Measure a Roof

To manually measure a roof without the help of aerial measurement reports, you must visit a job site and climb onto the roof to take precise roof measurements by hand.

  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.

How To Measure The Roof Using Google Earth

There are many great benefits to using Google Earth to measure your roof but nothing is as good as using DIY’s satellite roof measurement. The first of which is that you don’t even have to go up on the roof. This can make it even safer to do your measuring and it also removes a level of guessing to your calculation.

To begin with, you’re going to go to the app on your mobile device, or you will need to go to Google Earth on your laptop or desktop computer. There are many options here and you’ll want to select the one that allows you to enter the address. You can also zoom the map and click on the starting point of the roof you wish to select. After you’ve done this, you can click along the outer edge of the roof that you wish to calculate the area for.

Roofing Measurements Using Google Earth

Each time you add points, the area will update and there is a box below that will convert this into acres, meters, kilometers, miles, and finally, square feet. It will also give you the perimeter of the shape of the roof.

Using this tool will be very helpful for you in finding out the acreage or the tract of land of your property. It will also give you the square footage of your roof and any other areas that you’re wanting to estimate. You can even embed this tool on a website that you own.

While these tools are very helpful, there are a few variables that you’ll want to know. If you’re in a rural area, you may have to go with the cross streets as the address may not bring up what you’re looking for. In such areas, you may wind up using the GPS coordinates or a landmark to get to where you’re going.

If you’re using the GPS, you’ll want to enter the latitude and then use a comma and enter the longitude. This will put you at a reference point that you can use to locate the facility or building that you wish to calculate the roofing on.
