The total run is the distance from the peak to the edge of the roof which in this case is the total width divided in half which is equal to 10 feet or 120 inches.
Roof square footage multiplier.
Steep roofs measure your house at ground level then add in the roof s overhang for greater accuracy.
Take the area of the roof s footprint say it s 5 000 square feet and multiply 5 000 by 1 118.
And for a roof with a slope of 6 12 that number 1 118 is your roof slope multiplier.
Since pitch is the rise over a 12 inch run divide the run by 12 to get the multiplier in this case 120 12 10.
A roof pitch of 4 in 12 4 12 has a rise of 4 and a run of 12.
If your roof measures 48 feet 15 m x 24 feet 7 3 m multiplying its length by its width would give you a square footage of 1 152 square feet 107 0 m 2.
2280 1900 380 feet added for pitch.
The slope of the roof provides the rise and the run to be plugged into the equation.
If its pitch is 6 in 12 a pitch multiplier of 1 12 multiplying 1 152 sq ft 107 0 m 2 by 1 12 would give you an overall square footage of 1 290 square feet 120 m 2.
Get your roof size by using this roof pitch calculator.
Divide the rise by the run the run is 12.
So 2400 x 1 12 2 688 2 88 sqs added for pitch.
The pitch of the roof is the rise over a 12 inch run.
And that s the number you were looking for.
If your roof is flat or has no more than a 3 in 12 pitch you can calculate its total square footage by simply multiplying the length by the width.
For roof slopes expressed as x in 12 rise in run the roof pitch multiplier is determined by finding the square root of rise run 1.
Next multiply the footprint of the roof by the multiplier below for your roof pitch to find the overall roof area.
Find the square root of the result.
Roof pitch area multipliers.
In cases where a roof has a complex shape such as in the image to the right measuring the dimensions and areas of each part of the roof to calculate total area will result in a more accurate measurement of area.
Multiply by the square footage of a single floor of your house.
If the home measures 20 x 40 and has a 7 12 roof then to calculate the slope of the roof follow these steps.
The calculator cannot account for complex shapes based on a measurement of square footage alone.
For example a 4 12 pitch roof that is 100 square feet.
Use our roof pitch calculator to find the pitch of your roof.
So continuing our example if you ve got a two story house with a total square footage of 2 700 square feet with each floor having.
Roof is 6 12 pitch and measures at 2 400 square feet.
1900 x 1 2 2280.
That gives you 5 590 square feet which is the actual area of the surface of the roof.
