What Is a Roof Waste Calculator?
A Roof Waste Calculator is a tool used to estimate the amount of waste generated during a roofing project, such as shingles or other roofing materials that end up unused due to cutting, fitting, and installation.
This calculator helps in determining the total material needed to account for waste.
Why Use a Roof Waste Calculator?
Using a Roof Waste Calculator helps roofers, contractors, and homeowners accurately estimate the amount of roofing material needed for a project while considering potential waste.
It prevents underestimating material quantities, which could lead to delays and additional costs, and helps minimize excess material ordering.
