The online Roofing Calculator uses a special algorithm, which takes into account your house ground dimensions, roof slope, number of skylight and chimney flashings, tear-off and roof’s difficulty level. Difficulty level can be set from a simple gable roof to an all cut-up colonial with valleys, dormers, and even round towers, as well as everything in between.
Roofing prices which you get will include roofing materials, such as asphalt shingles (30 and 50 year dimensional shingles), standing seam metal roofing, interlocking aluminum and steel shingles, natural slate, clay tile, and flat roofing options, such as PVC roofing membrane, EPDM rubber roofs and modified bitumen (torch down roof). Included in the price calculation results, you will be able to estimate approximate energy savings derived from using Cool Roof options such as IB PVC roof or various metal roofing systems.
Roof prices are calculated based on the national average price per square (100 sq. ft.) and may vary based on your geographic location. However, for the most part, you will get a pretty accurate roof price calculation.
