It All Started Here

We invented the use of true 3D CAD models for roof estimating and have the most advanced modelling tools in the business. With customers in 148 countries, AppliCad knows a thing or two about roofing and cladding software.

Your business doesn't make money costing, quoting, designing, documenting, drawing, scheduling, organising and managing. While these things are important, you only make money supplying materials and installing the roof or wall and associated trim.

AppliCad will significantly reduce the time spent on non-income-earning administration and significantly speed up the actual income earning task of installing roofing and cladding.

Improve the accuracy of your quotes, improve productivity and efficiency, reduce the error rate, reduce waste and increase profitability.

AppliCad software helps you make money by increasing sales!
AppliCad helps you sell better AND buy better.

"Thank you so much for designing and building a great roofing estimating program, it has made my job so much easier."
- Aaron, AboveAll Roofing

The AppliCad Process

AppliCad helps your business because the processes are precise and more efficient. It works because it is "a defined process" and it gives you greater control over the systems within your business. The roofing software 'works' for you on different levels - it is fun and easy to use and will bring significant improvements to your roofing business.

There is no roof that we cannot model using the AppliCad software - for examples of some of these, click here - Roof Examples. There is no material system that we cannot produce a material list for - whether they be commercial. industrial or residential projects.

'Block-Cut' Waste Optimisation

It is a most exciting time when AppliCad launches something new – especially as innovative as the much anticipated brand new ‘Block-Cut’ panel optimisation tools to be launched with the next version of the renowned Roof Wizard software.

Block-Cut is a new process where the estimator determines where panels/sheets can go and more particularly, where the offcuts can go, as part of a ‘block’ of panels, thus substantially reducing waste material.  It takes the blocks created and sub-divides them to show where the off-cut is expected to be extracted from and applied to the roof.

Block Cut Example

This one new feature could repay the value of the Roof Wizard software on just one moderate sized metal roofing job.

AppliCad's New Roof Wizard - Online Training is here!

Cost Effective! Easy! At Your Own Pace! In Your Own Time!

AppliCad Academy

AppliCad Academy has just been launched for AppliCad Roof Wizard users. Roofing and cladding professionals can now learn about the benefits of using AppliCad Roof Wizard and our entry level RoofScape programs in your own office, at your own pace.

The AppliCad Academy is an online learning system designed to get any AppliCad operator to a level of competence where most functionality in the software is understood and used appropriately.

While not necessarily making you an expert, you will know where to find the right answers once you have completed the tutorials. It is broken up into manageable modules and smaller sections. You can work at your own pace and eventually get to the status of AppliCad Administrator if that is your goal.

The field of roofing and cladding take-off may be one of the most complex areas in building and construction because of the variety of materials and techniques used to achieve a water-tight building envelope. The AppliCad software will assist you to extract material lists and pricing details for almost any roof/wall geometry and any roof/wall material. 

This means of course that there is a lot to learn to be competent, an amazing amount to learn to be expert. This course is as comprehesive as the limitations of an online system permit. It takes you from the most basic level to the most sophisticated tools for modelling the most complex 3D roof and wall geometry. The 3D roof and wall model is key to successful and accurate material take-off - if the model is correct, the take-off will be correct.


The course also teaches you how to digitise aerial images. measure pitch from images and trace an Architect's PDF drawing. Detailed exercises and instructions for both Metric and Imperial units of measure. Competency testing is built in so you can prove your competency and value simply by doing the course.

The course is applicable to all AppliCad roofing software from Roof Wizard to RoofScape. (Be aware that none of the material options available in the Roof Wizard are available in the RoofScape software. However, RoofScape allows you to learn how to use the AppliCad 3D modelling tools at the least possible cost - it is free.)

Follow this link, Register, Login and start learning - click here and see how simple and cost effective learning really is.

Try it! The first training module is entirely free!


AppliCad Integrates Wall Cladding and All Roof Systems

The latest release of AppliCad roofing software has a mass of enhancements and useful modifications that simplifies the modelling of roof geometry, integrates wall cladding and handles all roof systems and materials into one complete package at a much reduced price that provides even greater value to the professional roofing and cladding company.

What is most valuable is what is 'under the hood'. The CAD engine has been rebuilt to provide shaded roof planes, tool tips and easier input of lines and roof planes.

This release incorporates the most innovative features in specialised software for roofing and cladding take-off. AppliCad's aerial image hip and gable pitch measure technology has been described as "the holy grail of aerial measurement tools".

As simple as 1,2,3 - Import the oblique image, drop the 3D axis indicator (CPL) on the corner of your building image aligning the 3D axes with the roof edges and measure the pitch of the gable end or the hip end of the roof. Measure the pitch to plus or minus one half of one degree! It really is that simple. Using regular 3D CAD functions for aligning the job origin and some vector math for measuring angles (roof pitch), AppliCad has a universally beneficial tool for AppliCad roofers who regularly use aerial images for preparing roof estimates.

Measure roof pitch from your aerial oblique images. Once considered the 'holy grail' or aerial roof mapping, the measurement of the pitch of a hip or gable end is now possible using the pitch measure tools in the latest release of AppliCad. Generate roof reports from aerial images using your own sources, without waiting days for another service to deliver for you.

Hip pitch measure tool

Working in a true 3D CAD environment has many advantages. The ability to align a 3D model with a 2D image is just one of those and this affords us all the power of 3D CAD measure tools. The pitch information is then used to help you accurately model your roof geometry in 2D, accurately reporting 3D areas and lengths, or in full 3D reporting areas and lengths of roof features. Simulate the application of the roof materials (see more information below), calculate labor and materials and generate the results in your MS Word report templates, and you're done.

AppliCad is very excited by this refinement to the CAD construction plane (CPL) and the pitch measure tools, and you will be too. Develop accurate take-offs for quoting purposes for all your roofing materials and labor without the risks associated with climbing all over the roof and in your own time frame - no more waiting for third party services. Serve yourself!

This enhancement to our 3D measurement technology will be included with the new update of AppliCad software. It will be a free update to all AppliCad customers with current Investment Protection Program contracts - Not current? Contact the local office to renew yours now.

New Image Capture Technology

Capture underlay images from any application on screen such as Google, Bing, AutoCad, Acrobat Reader (PDF), Word or Excel and drop them straight into the AppliCad workspace with our new image capture technology.

Capture a PDF roof plan and drop it right into the AppliCad workspace. Digitise over the top and in a few minutes you have you estimate complete. This really is just too easy now.
