This tool helps you calculate the amount of metal roofing material you need for your project.

## Metal Roofing Calculator

This metal roofing calculator helps you estimate the cost of a metal roof for your home. You can select the type of metal, input the dimensions of your roof, and account for the slope and any potential wastage. Additionally, you can add any extra costs per square foot for specific conditions or customizations.

### How to Use the Calculator:

- Select the metal type you plan to use.
- Enter the length and width of the roof in feet.
- Specify the pitch of your roof (slope). This value should reflect the steepness of your roof.
- Enter the percentage of materials that might be wasted during installation.
- Add any additional costs per square foot if applicable.
- Click the “Calculate” button to get the estimated total cost.

### How it Calculates:

The calculator uses the following formula to estimate the cost:

**Total Cost = (Length * Width * sqrt(1 + Slope^2) * (1 + Wastage Percentage)) * (Metal Cost per Sq Ft + Additional Cost per Sq Ft)**

Where:

**Length**and**Width**are the dimensions of your roof.**Slope**is the pitch of your roof.**Wastage Percentage**accounts for lost or damaged materials during installation.**Metal Cost per Sq Ft**is the base cost of the selected metal type.**Additional Cost per Sq Ft**includes any extra expenses specific to your project.

### Limitations:

Please note that this calculator is a tool for estimation purposes only. Actual costs may vary based on various factors including the complexity of the roof design, local labor costs, and other variables that can affect pricing.
