This tool helps you calculate the estimated cost of your roofing project based on your input dimensions and material choices.

### How to Use the Roofing Estimate Calculator

To use the roofing estimate calculator, simply fill in the required fields:

**Length of Roof:**Enter the length of the roof in meters.**Width of Roof:**Enter the width of the roof in meters.**Slope of Roof:** Enter the slope of the roof in degrees.**Cost per Square Meter:**Enter the cost per square meter in dollars.**Wastage Percentage:**Enter the percentage of material wastage expected.

Once all fields are filled, click on the “Calculate” button to get the estimated cost.

### How It Calculates the Results

The calculator estimates the roofing cost based on the following parameters:

**Area Calculation:**It calculates the area of the roof based on its length and width.**Slope Adjustment:**Adjusts the area based on the slope of the roof using the cosine of the angle.**Total Cost:**The adjusted area is multiplied by the cost per square meter and adjusted for the wastage percentage to get the final cost.

### Calculator’s Limitations

The calculator assumes:

- The roof is a simple rectangle. Complex roof shapes need professional measurement.
- The material cost per square meter is constant. Price variations for different materials are not taken into account.
- Wastage percentage is estimated. Actual wastage can vary based on roofing complexity and contractor efficiency.
