Roof Area Calculation


Recommended Posts

Can someone explain to me if there is an easy way to calculate roof area (other than creating a polygon from the roof face and adjusting it for roof pitch). Also, is there a way to create a schedule of roof faces that would include the areas. I need to do this for roofing material, and roof sheathing take-offs. Thanks.

If you create a worksheet, You can use the worksheet calculations to calculate the roof area on the slope, the predicted roof area(this is the roof slope projected onto the ground plane) and you could also calculate the heated areas of the roof(the areas inside the walls).

If you're using roof faces, then you can build report that will look for roof face objects.

If you really want to get sophisticated, You could also look for roof components and schedule those separately.
