The secret to calculating roofs with software to save time.
The latest batch of takeoff and estimating software programs on the market have made estimating roofing faster, easier and more accurate than ever before.
In this example, we will look at PlanSwift the leading program on the market.
Probably the greatest aspect of programs like this is they work with the original plans so no need to climb up on roof and deal with strange angles and overhangs. There is even a pitch tool to handle any roof pitch with a click of the mouse.
“I like how I can overlay siding details with Planswift, whereas before this could sometimes be a difficult task. I am able to measure my window, doors, floors, roofs, etc. I am able to line things up more easily than I had before. The overlay tool has been awesome with its pinpoint accuracy. This software hits all the right spots.”-Pacific Lifestyle Homes / Jon Pudlitzke
