    I'm not a roofer but have always had an interest in how to build one. This is a great informative app laid out in simple laymans terms.
  • Best roof app

    Without a doubt the best app for working out lengths of rafters and amounts of timber , easy to use with a basic understanding of how to set a roof out saves so much time , use this on every roof I cut now and it is always spot on ! Good work 👍

    The app is good apart form there's a mistake on it. If you put in 40 degree pitch as an example then the plumb cut should be 40 not 50 and the seat cut should be 50 not 40. I.e 35 degree will be 35 pitch 55 seat not 55 pitch and 35 seat. Apart from that it's good
  • AMAZING!!!!!!

    This is a must have app for anyone wanting to pitch a hand cut roof. I have pitched many roofs using the traditional roofing square which can take a bit of time but this app saved so much time. Especially if you want to make a slight adjustment the new figures are available in an instant.
  • Brilliant, extremely handy app!

    Bought this app as it looked good. When I looked at it I had a query which I emailed Buildcalcs about. A response was back to me the following morning. I then asked a further question. Again Buildcalcs responded very fast, this time with detailed sketches to help me understand. I haven't actually tried this app yet, just tested against some known dimension I have. It all seems to stack up and I can't wait to use it on a roof. Very impressed with support given, can not workout how I can get all this for £1.79! Will definitely recommend to other carpenters I know.

    I agree with "Disappointed mum", although I fail to see why she is disapointed as this app. is the best thing "since sliced bread". I believe the issues she mentioned will be addressed in the next upgrade, hopefully together with cripple rafter foot cut calculations where a lay board is used instead of a valley rafter. This application makes the Steel Square, Stanley Quick Square and Speed Square redundant and most important, it is in metric, together with the ability to perform calculations using the roof slope in degrees. Excellent application, that is if you have an iTouch, although it's worth buying one just for this application if you use traditional roofing techniques - you will pay for your iTouch in time saved in just one roofing job. I look forward to the next upgrade
  • Great App

    A great App but would benefit from a roof diagram showing setting out and all roof members and measurements this would then be one of the best apps around also I've seen an app where you set your bevel of the IPhone screen worth considering.
  • Not Great.

    This app could be so much better. Once you enter the dimensions of your timbers there is no way to move on to the next page, meaning I have to press the home button and reopen the app every time ! Save your money and forget this app.
  • Fantastic app

    Really handy app. Quick simple & easy to use. Not yet tested it, but look forward to doing so. Saves hunting for the ready reckoner
