    Step-By-Step Guide: How to Measure a Roof for Metal Roofing Installation

    It’s important to measure your metal roof before you begin your project so that you can estimate your metal roofing material as accurately as possible. Here’s our step-by-step guide for measuring the total roof area for installation:

    Step 1: Start by sketching out a top-down view of your home’s roof. Don’t worry about getting the scale or dimensions perfect yet.

    Step 2: Measure the length of your roof. Do this by measuring from one of the edges to the opposite side. Write down the number for the next step.

    Step 3: Next, figure out the width of the metal that you’re installing. Then, divide the length of your roof by the width of the metal. For example, your roof’s length might be 30 linear feet (360 inches). Divide that by 24-inch standing seam roofing, and you get 15. This will be the number of panels you’ll need for one side of the roof.

    Step 4: Repeat Step 3 for the other side of the roof. It’s important to measure both sides in case they slightly differ in size.

    Step 5: Measure from the fascia board (board attached to the roof joists) to the ridge (peak) of the roof. This will determine the length of the metal roofing panels you’ll need for one side of the roof.
