Why a Flat Roof Calculator is Essential for Trade Roofers

Trade roofers, especially sole traders, must divide their business dealings into many categories. They have to be the sales person, the quantity surveyor, the foreman, the roofer, the labourer and the accounts department, in addition to all the other tasks a small business owner typically handles on a daily basis.

Permaroof understands the pressure small business owners and sole traders face, and that’s why we believe strongly in customer service values and delivering as much support as we can for our trade clients. With challenges also faced in terms of competition, roofers are finding ways of cutting the costs in every area, while keeping quality of both the work and the materials high.

Permaroof introduced the EPDM kit builder app to help streamline the flat roof quotation process and dramatically reduce the time it takes to produce accurate quotes.

About the Permaroof EPDM flat roof calculator

The Permaroof flat roof calculator helps trade roofers to simplify and speed up the process of producing roofing quotations. The calculator is a free tool available to use online with no sign-ups or logins required.

Roofers can tear up the ready reckoners and simply visit the site from their device, input the simplest details over just four steps, such as:

  • Flat roof measurements (the tool calculates overhang)
  • Project-specific details – adjoining buildings, upstanding walls
  • Trim requirements
  • Membrane grade requirements
  • Extrusions – the tool will add EPDM accessories if needed
  • Membrane and trim colour requirements

What happens next?

Once the details have been inputted, there is the option to go back and check you’ve added all your details correctly. If you’re happy, simply submit the request and a kit list is returned within moments.

This list can be printed out for your records or submitted to Permaroof for a materials quote. If you’re happy with the quote, Permaroof can process your order and you’ll receive everything the next day, under the terms of our next day delivery service.

Working with Permaroof offers trade roofers the opportunity to streamline operations and deliver a reliable, high-quality service to their clients. We also have new and exciting opportunities for trade roofers wishing to expand their existing businesses into EPDM flat roofing.
