## How is Gable length calculated?

Calculating Gable height knowing wall length and roof pitch. Divide this amount by the run of the roof pitch. 144 / 12 = 12. Multiply this 12 by the roof pitch rise. At the highest point the Gable is 6′ high.

## How do I calculate how much siding I need?

Add together the square footage you calculated for the sides of your home and the additional areas. Subtract the uncovered areas’ square footage from the total amount you calculated in step four. Divide this number by 100 to get the number of squares of siding you will need to order.

## How do you calculate roof rise?

Calculate the roof rise using the figures for unit rise and total run. Multiply your figure for unit rise by your figure for total run to get the total rise. Using the example, it would be six inches times 13 feet. The total roof rise in the example equals 78 inches.

## How much does it cost to side a 1500 sq ft house?

Aluminum siding costs An average 1,500 square foot house would cost around $7,700 for standard aluminum siding and upwards of $11,000 for custom grades after labor and material costs.

## How do I calculate how much soffit I need?

Multiply the total length by the width to obtain the area of soffit needed to fill the gap. For example, if the total eaves length is 110 feet, and the width is 2 feet, multiply 110 by 2. The result, 220 in this example, is the number of square feet of soffit required.

## What is the standard size of vinyl siding?

Overall, horizontal panel sizes typically run between 6 and 10 inches in width. Standard length for horizontal vinyl siding panels is 12 feet.

## What does a 4/12 roof pitch look like?

A 4/12 roof pitch indicates the roof rises 4 inches in height for every 12 inches, as measured horizontally from the edge of the roof to the centerline. The gentle slope of a 4/12 pitch roof falls on the cusp between low- pitch and moderate- pitch.

## Is a 3/12 roof pitch good?

Any roofs up to 3:12 are generally considered “low slope.” In the residential arena, we see lower slope roofs as part of the home’s architectural design. Then, when you get into roofs of 3:12 or greater pitch, most other metal roofs can be used and that generally is the pitch requirement for asphalt shingles as well.

## How far can a 2×6 Rafter span without support?

How far can a 2×6 Rafter span without support? The table states that 2 X 6 rafters spaced 16 inches on center (o.c) can span a maximum distance of 13 feet 5 inches. Another option are 2 X 8 rafters spaced 24 inches o.c.

## What roof pitch is 30 degrees?

What roof pitch is 30 degrees? A 30 ° roof pitch is roughly the same as a 7/12 roof pitch. To convert from degrees to the American ratio: Find the tangent of the angle, tan( angle ).

## What degrees is a 3/12 pitch?
