The Pitched Roof Ceiling Renovation Estimating Calculator is used to calculate the labour, materials and plant involved in installing, re-skimming or stripping and replacing sloping or flat ceilings in pitched roofs. This estimating calculator can be used for garage conversions when insulation and plastered ceilings need to be added to existing pitched roofs.

To estimate a pitched roof ceiling renovation, first select a template which best describes the tasks which need to be carried out. Then review the dimensional information for the roof and indicate which elements need to be installed, or stripped and replaced, using the Yes/No estimating options. 

The Pitched Roof Ceiling Renovation Estimating Calculator then calculates the following items:

  • Plasterboard and finish
  • Battens
  • Decoration
  • Insulation
  • Plant to remove spoil
  • Plus the labour associated with the above

The items required for the Pitched Roof Ceiling Renovation Estimating Calculator are specified by the specification, except for the plastering and decoration resources, which are specified by mini-spec options.

By default, this Estimating Calculator uses skimmed square edge plasterboard attached directly to the roof timbers. To select a different plastering mini-spec option - or decoration mini-spec option - click the Load Spec/Mini-Spec to Worksheet button in the Calculated Resources tab.
