Common Commercial Roofing FAQs for Moran, WY
How to measure roof size
Roofs are measured in squares. Each square is equal to 100 square-feet. Start by creating a rough sketch of the roof, and divide it into square or rectangular sections to make the calculations much easier. Measure the length of each section of the commercial roof, and then use the area formula (length x width) to determine the square-footage of each section. Once you’ve found the area of each section, add them together to find the total area of the entire roof. Divide this total by 100 to calculate how many squares of roofing material you’ll need.
