A roofing calculator is a convenient instrument that many roof replacement companies have on their websites. This instrument allows you to get your roof estimate made without even contacting a roofing company. A roof replacement cost calculator can be used when you are in the process of collecting estimates from potential roofing contractors. For example, you may use a roofing cost calculator to get an initial roof estimate without a contractor coming to your place to inspect your roof. The roof estimate is usually very rough and subject to be corrected after the inspection. But it may help you to narrow down your list of potential roofing contractors.
Step 1. Calculate the area and pitch of the roof
It's not that hard to calculate the area of the roof. On our roofing calculator web page you can find detailed instructions on how to calculate the pitch and the area of the roof.
Step 2. Choose the right roofing material
Advantage Remodeling and Roofing new roof cost calculator provides a selection of roofing materials for residential and commercial roofing projects. Commercial and residential roofing projects are different in terms of design, materials, maintenance, and roof replacement estimate. We will lightly touch on the main differences but discuss this in detail in our next article.
The first major distinction is the design. Commercial buildings are usually larger than residential properties, and therefore roof estimate will be higher for commercial buildings than for residential properties.
Another difference is the materials used. The material should be a good fit for your weather conditions, roofing needs, budget, and type of property. To ensure the maximum lifespan of a roof, the roofing material should be easy to maintain and repair.
Maintenance of commercial buildings is usually more demanding because of the larger square footage. Residential roofs are easier to maintain because of their smaller size and the easiness of damage assessment. A homeowner can perform a roof inspection themselves to see if there are any roofing problems that need to be addressed.
Finally, the roof replacement estimate is higher for commercial buildings because of the bigger area and work that needs to be done to install the new roof.
