This tool will estimate the amount of metal roofing material you need for your project.

## Metal Roof Cost Calculator

This metal roof cost calculator helps you estimate the cost of your metal roofing project. By inputting the measurements of the roof and the slope, you can calculate the roof area and the total cost based on the price per square meter of the roofing material.

### How to Use the Calculator

- Enter the length and width of the roof in meters.
- Enter the slope of the roof in degrees. The slope of a roof is important because it affects the effective surface area of the roof.
- Enter the cost per square meter for your metal roofing material. This cost is usually provided by the supplier of the roofing material.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the total estimated cost.

### How It Calculates the Results

The calculator uses the following steps to estimate the cost:

- It calculates the roof area by considering the slope of the roof. The formula used is:
- Effective area = (Length x Width) / cos(Slope in radians)

- It then multiplies the effective area by the cost per square meter to get the total cost.

### Limitations

This calculator provides an estimate based on the dimensions and cost per square meter you provide. It does not account for additional costs such as labor, underlayment, trimmings, and other materials or services that may be necessary for the completion of the roofing project. For a more accurate estimate, it is advisable to consult with roofing professionals and suppliers.
