    There is no need for this complexity in calculating the area – it is simply
    60x10x2 = 1200
    20x10x2 = 400
    10x5x2 = 100
    6x5x0.5×8 = 120
    Total 1820
    It is hard to believe that home inspectors would need training on such a basic estimation.

    You also don't mention starter shingles and roof caps so whoever uses this as a home owner to attempt to do his roof will be short.

    when it comes to the roof measurements what is the most efficient way of measuring the length, width, and or height of each side of those shapes?

  • Mick Mac 7 months ago

    The calculation is not A1, A2 and A3 is not as complex as described. It is simply 60x10x2, 20x10x2 and 5x10x2 or 2100 total. No need to add and subtract the common triangles.

    Very help full. Thanks for sharing your power.

  • Dannie Strable 7 months ago

    Why couldnt you measure the A1 and measure A3 as LxW and not subtract two triangles per gable?
