The PlansXpress SIPS Roof Estimating Calculator is designed for use with PlansXpress. The PlansXpress SIPS Roof Estimating Calculator is used to estimate the labour and materials involved in constructing a structural insulated panel roof.
If you wish to estimate a SIPS roof independently within EstimatorXpress (i.e. not using PlansXpress), use the Universal SIPS Roof Estimating Calculator.
The PlansXpress SIPS Roof Estimating Calculator calculates the following items:
- Carcassing timber
- Fascias and guttering
- Tiling, felt undercloak and lead work
- Guttering and down pipes
- Plastering and insulation
- Internal and external decorating
- Plus all labour associated with the above
All of the items required for the PlansXpress SIPS Roof are specified from the Specification.
- Please pay particular attention to the Usage Factor for the roof tiling, which is highly variable for both labour and material and are particularly dependant on the roof tile selected. To modify Usage Factors, please take a look at Getting Started - Changing the Usage Factor of a Resource in a Specification
