Without utilizing the proper tools, trying to determine the proper area of a residential or commercial roofing space can be difficult. With various different angles and pitches, it’s nearly impossible to get the right reading without physically getting onto the roof itself.
But now, with SketchAndCalc’s area calculator, finding an accurate surface area measurement for roofs (yes, even with the pitch!) has never been easier.
