The first step in creating a new roof or remodeling an old one is to determine the surface area of the roof. Before you have this information, it will be difficult to accurately quote or estimate your costs and materials.
There are a number of local services in every community that will measure your roof and give you an accurate coverage area. This is the easiest solution to finding out your roof's dimensions. Often, roofing professionals will offer this service as a part of their installation costs, or even sometimes for free.
If you're thinking about measuring your roof yourself, please take caution as falling from roofs is a regular injury. Be sure to wear proper safety equipment, and if possible, have someone else there to assist you. Take extra precaution as you move up or down from the roof itself.
