App Store Description

ROOFING CARPENTRY & STAIR FRAMING CALCULATOR.
For roofing & framing carpentry and other roof builders.
Accurate, reliable and easy to use, it is an indispensable tool for roof construction professionals.
Developed and used by carpenters around the world.

No need to remember in which order to enter data, info is at most 2 touches away.
Metric or feet, inches and fractions of an inch - an essential tool for all roofers / chippy's.
Never forget your span or rafter tables, red roofing book and other standalone construction calculators again! Roofers Guide is always with you.

ROOF FRAMING:-
◆ Rafter Lengths - 6 measures - centre ridge, adjusted for 1/2 ridge or 1/2 rafter with or without eaves;
◆ Hip/Valley Lengths - 6 measures - centre ridge, adjusted for 1/2 ridge or 1/2 rafter with or without eaves;
◆ Cut Angles & Compound Saw Angles for rafter, hip and valley - plumb, side & seat cuts and purlins-side & down cuts;
◆ Template sizes for the same cuts - adjustable for different sized template;
◆ List of Creepers (or Jack Rafters in US) lists all lengths - both Geometric (unadjusted) and Top Long Pt adjusted for hip thickness - with or without adjustment for eaves;
◆ Pitch in degrees (decimal), degrees minutes seconds & Pitch in inches (US);

Other than StairCalc (which is our stair only app) we do not know of an app that can do this simultaneously.
◆ Number and size of step risers,
◆ Number and size of treads, step inclines,
◆ Step incline,
◆ Stairwell opening,

- The calculations allow for situations where the overall stair rise is fixed or the stair run is fixed or both rise and run are fixed allowing maximum flexibility.

Set restrictions (or not) on acceptable min/max values for -
◆ Step Riser Heights(R)
◆ Tread Going (G) also known as Tread Depth.
◆ Step incline values.
◆ Also ability to apply step slope formula 2R+G (2R+TD in US) where applicable.

EXTRA CALCULATIONS:- Not related to roofing carpentry but added because we use them!
◆ Convert US/Imperial Lengths to metric and back
◆ Convert Metric Volume to US/Imperial Volume.
◆ Concrete Calculator for round and rectangular or square holes
◆ Concrete Slab calculator

About The Developer
Infoguide is part of a small building firm based in Western Australia and this app was created by a former Roof Framing Carpenter for our team of carpenters. We use it and believe it will be as helpful to other carpenters as it was for us.
