Using a Roof Calculator to Generate Roof Estimates
To estimate expenses for your roof, you will need to know the kind of style of your roof – typically gable roofs or hip roofs – and the existence of valleys and dormers. The difficulty of a roofing project will impact the cost, and knowing the roof’s size and pitch are additional requirements to make a fair estimate.
With all this information at hand you can plug numbers into a roof calculator and get a reasonable roof estimate at the press of a “Calculate” button. A roof calculator seems like a magical tool for home owners. In reality, it is a good guideline, but nowhere close to a definitive and final answer.
