How to Use the Canadian Online Metal Roofing Calculator
1. The most important thing you need to know is the perimeter sq. footprint of your building including its overhangs. There are a couple of ways you can verify this. One option is to measure the perimeter area of your roof including soffit and fascia overhangs
We highly recommend you download Google Earth Pro Desktop Version and use the polygon tool to calculate your buildings roof perimeter surface area.
2. The second most important thing to know is how many facets or faces 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 your metal estimate will accurately reflect the cost of a new metal roof for your home.
