Roofing Calculator – Flexible & Powerful Roof Estimating Software for Your Mobile Device

Roofing Calculator app is a very flexible, powerful and detail-oriented mobile roof estimating software, available for iPhone and Android. Roofing Calculator was designed by a roofer, for roofing contractors. With this app you can:

  • Estimate ANY Roof in seconds!
  • Save time, money, and sell more roofing jobs!
  • Calculate cut-up roofs: multiple roof sections, dormers, valley, etc.
  • Save results of your calculation, including customers name, address and other info!
  • Email the results to yourself for record-keeping, or to your client as a formal proposal!

Roofing Calculator App is priced at $19.99 USD, and includes lifetime upgrades. We feel that the amount of time you save with our app is well justified by additional profits you make by selling many more roofs.

Why and how we created this app

When I decided to create this program, I first and foremost, designed it for my own roof estimating needs, which could not and still cannot be met by any other available mobile roofing calculator app / program available on either App Store or Google Play Store (former Android Market).

I needed a program that would account for not only a straight line calculation of roof size, and hypothetical number of roof shingle bundles. I needed to be able to calculate also multi-story homes, with odd roof shapes, different slopes, dormers, valleys, skylights, chimneys, etc. As you may know, most roofs are not a straight gable ranch-type roofs. You often have to calculate a cut-up roof. Doing it by hand, using pencil and paper takes too much time – often in excess of 2 hours per roof!

Spending too much time on roof estimating, limits the amount of time you have left for actual roof measurements, sales pitch, and doing other estimates. In effect, by spending time on estimating, you are loosing money, that you could otherwise make, if you sold more jobs.

Roofing Calculator app allows you to estimate ANY roof in just seconds! The first thing you have to do is initial setup, where you plug in your material costs of every type of shingle that you install, and other piece-work prices (such as waste factor, tear-off price, valley flashing, dormer flashing, skylight / chimney and other roof work).

Once you setup your material prices and lobor costs, all you need to do is measure your roof, and plug in the numbers into the calculator screen. Click the “calculate” button – voilà, you have all your sizes, material cost breakdown, price per square, and total project price.

This literally takes you second! No more sitting in your truck, drawing diagrams, and using the scientific calculator which was made for a completely different purpose. No more figuring out roof pitch multipliers, or calculating piece work in your notepad. Roofing Calculator app does it all for you, and it is available on the most popular mobile platforms – iPhone and Android.

List of new features, available on Roof Calc v2.0 – released in July 2012 on both iPhone and Android platforms

  • Multiple Roof Sections: This allows you to calculate very cut up roofs, or roofs with different slopes and or different materials being installed: for example if the main roof gets 30-year architectural shingles, while a section of the roof gets a rubber or copper roof. You will be able to estimate this all as one roof.
  • Save and Export calculation results: We want to give you a complete roof estimating solution, all in one program, and went far beyond simple results export via email. You will have the option to enter clients name, address and other info associated with each roof you estimate, email it to yourself as plain text or PDF, email materials list for each client to your roofing supplier, and also email your client a formal proposal, based on your calculations, with your company letterhead!
  • Dormers: We added a function of calculating roof dormers as separate units, which will be priced as piece work – just like we now calculate skylight and chimney flashings.
  • Valley: Additionally, you will be able to estimate valley flashing – you will be able to price it by length (cost per foot of valley), and roofing calculator will automatically add 3 square feet of shingles, and 1 foot of ice and water shield to the total materials list!

Other uses for our app:

While roofing calculator is originally made for roofing contractors, to help your sales force (or yourself, if you do the sales) increase your business, and simplify estimating process, this tool can also be invaluable for professionals in related fields such as real estate and home inspections.

  1. […] work with roofs need to make their estimating jobs more efficient and precise. One of the biggest advantages of the Roofing Calculator is that it has a number of different modes, settings and profiles that enable you to easily […]

  2. Few questions:

    1) Can I send the estimate to a printer in the salespeople’s car? Or does it just do email?

    2) Can I customize the estimate I send to the customer? Logo, disclaimer…etc?
