Ben this video most definitely refresh my memory, I almost grab my pen and paper and started to make up my own measurements 😂😂. Thank you for making this video. Very easy. Very simple

So the software that I'm using is Sky measure powered by core logic, so 80% of U.S. homes sold are included in property imagery, averaging 9 images per home so more than likely it could definitely save you time and money their fees vary I haven't paid but 40$ per home we've done, but it saves a ton of time in the long run they also have an app for easy login access

This works in simple roofs like a shed roof home but when you have gables and eves and rakes it's tougher I use this sky measure software whe 're you pay 40 to get the aerial Square footage of a home only thing it's not always guaranteed if there's alot of trees covering the home that's the only disadvantage

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.

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.

Ben, when you show the East gable at 6:08 in the video you explain the base as 2 different lengths. Why do you show 10 foot and 16.3 and not just a 3rd line showing 26.3 length total. This looks confusing when looking at the roof design. So what your saying is that from the edge of the main roof to the end of the gable is 10ft and the triangular portion length is 16.3 feet? why would you double a length just to subtract the triangular portion. Couldn't you just measure the triangular parts of the roof and do it separately? Then subtract the triangular portion from the main portion of the house? it confuses me how you take two lengths add them together then do your base X height X 1/2. Please let me know why its done this way

Measuring the area of the house footprint will not work. You also need to add in your overhangs of eaves and rakes, then it will work. You could cost someone thousands of dollars by making this simple mistake. have a good day.

Nick, multiplying something by 1/2 or dividing by 2 equals the same number… Example : 100 divided by 2 = 50 or 100 x .5 (1/2) = 50… So, you can do it either way…

Yes expanding on what Eric Brennan Said when talking about trapezoid in the beginning you said Base 1+Base 2 divided by 2 at the end you in the final summary of all the calculations it says Base 1 + Base 2 x 1/2 and at the end you say the same thing but it shows Base 1+Base 2 divided by 2. Which one is it? Can you please correct this or can someone comment or leave a video note?

A software package has been developed to make such measurements. But knowing how to do this manually is necessary. Knowing the basics first is necessary in any profession.

This video was just what I needed! Thank you!

6:40 that's wrong, you have to get the slope and multiply by the sloped length, not the projection

Awesome.hey what's up buddy.i have a cuestion .how many bags of ridge are on 92 feet.

None

Hi Ben, excellent job with the videos. You are a true teacher!

HardGamer

Nice video keep it up this video was crystal clear on how to learn to estimate a roof. Thank you

Matt Maranara

Well done.

Rodolfo Melchor

thankyou!!!!!

THAT WAS HELLA INFORMATIONAL!!!! THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!

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.

JOSH SWARTZENTRUBER

That was very helpful, Thank you

Allen Washburn

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.

Dan Simmons

very straightforward and professionally done. Bravo ! kiss

MY HEAD HURTS

Samitha Bandara

Don we consider the roof angle when measuring roof.. 45 deg, 30 deg.. like that.

syed hussain

Just one thing didn't mention adding wast percentage for different roofs different percentages

hotzpacho

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

Flores Flores

You make it very easy 🙂

Flores Flores

Very help full. Thanks for sharing your power.

Dannie Strable

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

Willis Fitnurbut

You said multiply several times for the trapezoid measurement when it's actually dividing by 2.
