HOW TO GET AN ACCURATE METAL ROOF PRICE USING OUR ROOF CALCULATOR
1. The most important thing you need to know is the perimeter sq. footprint of your building including its overhangs. One option is to measure the perimeter area of your roof including soffit and fascia overhangs
We recommend Google Earth Pro. Use the polygon tool to calculate your buildings perimeter surface area including its eave overhangs.
2. The second most important thing to know is how many facets or surfaces your roof has. A facet is any roof section requiring perimeter flashing. The higher the number of facets, the higher the roof cost will be.
Example: A bungalow with two sides has 2 facets. The same bungalow with a hipped roof has 4 facets.
You can accurately count the number of facets on your roof by using Google Earth
3. The third most important thing to know is your roof pitch. The steeper the roof pitch, the greater your buildings roof surface will be, even on the same footprint
If you accurately enter this information, our online metal estimating tool will provide a price that accurately reflects the cost of a new metal roof for your home.
