    A few years ago we had a discussion on roofs and in that thread there is a document on the Foot Print Method that you can view\download that may be of help.

    Here is a link to the topic "Measuring A Roof" in the a old "Tips and How To". I have also attached the same document below.

    Do a  concise sketch of the footprint with all the offsets, is the risk one, two or more stories, what is the roof pitch, use a pitch chart or a pitch gauge to get the factor,  multiply according to the shape ie...rectangle, trapezoid, parallelogram, triangle  

    or go to Xact Sketch and it will require and do the same thing   or

    Go to Eagle View and they will measure it for you if there are no major obstructions 

    or  God forbid, actually get on the roof and take a tape measure and hope it is not a Texas roof that is 12/12 with forty thousand offsets

    Thanks so much for the formula. I will compare it and see which is the closest to being accurate. This would work well on those plano Texas roofs.

       You can get on the roofs just enough to mark the hail hits for your photos. Then try not to fall off.
