The following tools estimate the area of a roof, as well as the amount of materials necessary to construct a roof of a given area. The House Base Area is the area of land that the house covers, and for more complex shapes, can be estimated using the Area Calculator. Roofing Area Calculator. Roofing Material Calculator. The calculated area is only an estimation. In cases where a roof has a complex shape, such as in the image to the right, measuring the dimensions and areas of each part of the roof to calculate total area will result in a more accurate measurement of area. The calculator cannot account for complex shapes based on a measurement of square footage alone. The Area Calculator can be used to calculate the area of a variety of simple shapes that together can comprise the area of the roof. Using the aggregate area of these simple shapes can yield a more accurate roof area to be used with the Roofing Material Calculator. The most common roofing materials used in the United States include shingles, membrane roofing, and ceramic tile, all of which have different life spans. Shingle roofs typically have a life span of 15-30 years, while membrane roofs usually last 5-15 years. Although ceramic tile roofs are expensive, they can have a life span of over 100 years. Roof pitch is the measurement of a roof s vertical rise divided by its horizontal span. It is often compared to slope, but is not exactly the same. In the United States, a span of 12 inches 1 foot is used, and pitch is measured as the rise of the roof over 12 inches. For instance, a 7 12 roof pitch means that the roof rises 7 inches for every 12 horizontal inches. Outside of the US, a degree angle is typically used. Roof pitch is a determining factor for cost of the roof, as well as the roof area, and the type of materials used.Roofing Calculator. It affects walkability as well as drainage, and roofs in areas of high rain or snowfall tend to have steeper pitches. Roof pitch affects the actual area of the roof. Depending whether the roof area is measured horizontally possibly from a drawing or photograph , a correction factor is necessary to determine the actual area of the roof. Given pitch and a horizontal area measurement, multiply the horizontal area by a correction factor corresponding to pitch, provided in the table Roofing Calculator. below, to determine the actual area of the roof to be used in the Roofing Material Calculator. While it is possible to estimate the amount of necessary materials using only the total roof area measurement, as can be seen from the table, Roofing Calculator. depending how large the pitch of the roof, the actual area of the roof can differ by up to 2. 236 from the measured total area frame house construction in Delaware at a pitch of 24 12. As such, while it Roofing Calculator. can be cumbersome, measuring the area and pitch of each part of the roof and multiplying Roofing Calculator. by the corresponding correction factor will result in the most accurate estimate of necessary roofing materials.

If we build houses from timber, then we do not commission them immediately. Knowing that when using wood of natural moisture, problems with external and internal decoration can occur, we give time for shrinkage - we build for centuries!

We adhere to the policy of total honesty: in our house, the logs and the rafter system are thicker, the walls are stronger, and the total amount of materials spent, compared to similar projects of other companies, is more than 30%

## WHAT WE WILL BUILD YOUR HOUSE FROM?

We offer to buy a log house from a bar:
• un planed 150x150 mm;
• profiled 145x145 mm;
• profiled 145x195 mm;

At the same time, for the floors we use a beam of 100x150 mm, and for the construction of the rafter system - 50x150 mm (in the luxury package, the dimensions are different - 100x200 mm and 50x200 mm, respectively). Between themselves, the complete sets of houses made of timber are distinguished by the technology of assembling the gables and the ceiling height of the first floor (in the suite 10 cm higher).

After completion of the work, you will receive a wooden house with interfloor ceilings, a rafter system and walls. The roof and foundation are paid separately.

We do not install windows, do not perform finishing work: at home it is necessary to withstand a long period of time in order to correct the consequences of rush.

HIGH-QUALITY LOG HOUSE WITHOUT RISK AND DELAYS!
Wooden houses from a bar:
comfortable housing at affordable prices

Our catalog contains a variety of projects of houses from timber: you can choose the right one for your family. If necessary, we will make constructive changes to the project so that it best suits the needs of the client.

Do not worry about the budget: we will fit into any amount. We know how much construction costs in Moscow and the Moscow region, so we choose lumber of natural humidity. They are three times cheaper than glued ones, and by a third - than the profiled beam that has undergone chamber drying.

We have been building houses for over 15 years. During this time, we studied the features of the technology, the specifics of the material used, and also developed our own methods to achieve the best results in less time. We know how to optimize the construction of houses from timber, correctly plan the sequence of basic operations. That is why work on the site does not stand idle for a minute.

The advantages of a house from a bar from the manufacturer
Many companies build houses from timber, but not everyone can boast of having their own production. Most often, materials are bought, and no one guarantees that the basic technologies were not violated during manufacture.

We use timber produced in the workshops of our own factory located under Boston. For the manufacture of lumber, we choose coniferous wood - it is easy to process, stable during shrinkage, will last a dozen years.

Our houses:

• safe for humans, animals and the environment. We do not add adhesives, we work in compliance with all environmental standards;
• keep design dimensions. Our wood dries evenly, the thickness of the cracks does not reach even 2 mm, and the total shrinkage is not more than 5% of the original area;
• Not afraid of mold and mildew. Thanks to the impregnation, dangerous microorganisms will no longer scare you;
• have a low weight. You can save on the foundation - because of the small load there is no need to resort to expensive options for the foundation;
• durability and reliability. The house is not afraid of precipitation, temperature extremes, hurricane wind and other negative influences.
In addition, timber houses, projects and prices of which can be found in the catalog on our website, are really being built quickly. The average completion date is 1-2 months.

### What do I need to know about shrinkage?

State of Illinois are among the leaders in the number of erected houses from profiled timber. Such popularity is understandable: in the first year, shrinkage is no more than 3%, and during subsequent operation it approaches 5%. Due to this, the number of cracks is minimized.

The course of shrinkage is affected by:

• dimensions of the material used;
• applied technologies;
• moisture content of wood;
• time of year when construction is underway;
• features of the project of the house.
With shrinkage, the thickness of the beam changes more, while the length remains the same. If the technology has been violated, you won’t know about it right away: you can buy a house from a timber of the same size, and in the end get a blockhouse less than the original.

### We are shortening the shrink period !

For houses, you can apply some tricks to reduce the duration of shrinkage.

Techniques that we implement at the construction site:

• corners are constructed using the dovetail or warm angle technology;
• seams are filled with jute;
• spikes and grooves are connected tightly, without gaps;
• when assembling the pediments, birch pins are used, and in the luxury configuration, they are additionally reinforced by a node with a galvanized spring;
• joints are mounted on piles filled with a mixture of concrete and sand;
• the rafter system is being erected according to a reinforced scheme;
• wall material is mounted on birch pins instead of metal hardware.
