PlanSwift is not adding in the pitch!


When using the Roof Area tool there are a few steps to making sure that your values are correct.


  1. Click the drop-down menu on the Area tool and select Roof Area Tool
  2. Name the Takeoff item, add the pitch (i.e., If your pitch is 7/12 you can just enter in 7 for the pitch.), choose your color (PlanSwift will automatically assign a color for each item), the fill type, and the take-off folder you would like to save it to.
  3. Draw out your area and remember to stop digitizing.


Now this is important: The value shown on the page will be of just the area; it does not calculate with the pitch!


The correct value with the pitch included can be found in two places: Takeoff Summary & Estimate (tab). Use the value in these locations for your estimating purposes
