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.


  • Step 1: Click the drop-down menu on the area tool and select Roof Area Tool.

  • Step 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.

  • Step 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 value with the pitch included can be found in two places: Takeoff Summary & Estimate (tab).

This will show the correct value and should always be what you use for your estimating purposes
