The software can be used for all types of tiles or shingles, no matter their size or material they are made of.
…or do you need to estimate siding and cladding?
Roof Wizard is the most powerful take-off program for residential siding and commercial cladding. It uses powerful 3D modelling tools to model the walls and to accurately add openings, such as windows and doors, exactly to the building’s design plan specifications. It provides full estimating and reporting capabilities for all types of wall cladding or siding materials, as well as a complete cutting list of trim such as door and window trim, internal and external corners, soffit etc. You can also flip lay direction, add any shape opening and modify wall shape to land contour, all with a few mouse clicks.
Generate reports and estimates automatically
The Roof Wizard allows you to automatically produce the quotation, material list, order forms, and wall elevation drawings. You can also measure wall areas and wall trim lengths.

Taking your roofing business into the future with integrated Solar Wizard design tools
Solar power is becoming increasingly popular and is opening an important market. Therefore we have created the Solar Wizard.
The Solar Wizard tool kit is fully integrated with the Roof Wizard program. Solar Wizard is a 3D modelling, design and decision support program for solar system design to
- calculate solar radiation and shadows on a 3D model of the client’s structure and
- help determine the optimum location of solar assets such as PV arrays and solar thermal equipment.
Furthermore, aerial images are readily available and accessible via the web and from specialist vendors. Use these in the Solar Wizard’s digitising tools to prepare initial client proposals from your desk.
Finally, using the shadow analyser and solar radiation calculator, you can prepare very detailed client proposals at this initial stage. The high performance report generator connects the calculated data and images to reports using various options for display in the SolarWizard in Microsoft Word.
