How to calculate roof sqft?

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Anyway to calculate the square footage/area of the roof...taking the roof pitch into consideration, as well?

 

Thx

Yes open each roof plane and check the "Roof Surface Area" of the polyline or let the Material list tally them all for you.

I have a macro package that can be used.  One macro is added to the label of each roof plane to accumulate the data of all the roof planes.  Another macro is placed in a text box to display the data including the totals.

 

I sell this little macro package for $50

I just run a material list and look at shingles. Don't know how accurate it is but I assume it's close...

Yes, I believe shingles would give me what I'm after.  However, I'm using a metal roof.  I guess I can always switch back to shingles just to get my calculation then change back to metal when I need.

 

Thanks all

Disregard, I now see the roof area for the metal roof.  I'd never done a metal roof before, so I didn't know how it shows.  I see it now.

 

Thx all
