Frequently Asked Questions 
 


Is Digitizer a drawing service?
Digitizer is not a drawing service but software that you purchase or subscribe to and install on your computer. You create the drawings yourself and they are stored on your computer. You can reopen and work with the drawings again and again. Return to the top...

What is the difference between RoofCAD and Digitizer?
RoofCAD and Digitizer run on the same CAD platform and share the same interface. RoofCAD is intended for users who are making drawings from rough site sketches (hand drawings) and want to draw the roof ‘from scratch’. Digitizer is intended for users who want to use a satellite image, aerial photo or ePlan as a template to trace the roof outline. Digitizer is also the module required if you have a digitizer board and are working with paper plans. You can see that the two together make the ultimate drawing and takeoff tool for the roofing industry. Return to the top...

Can I buy or do I have to subscribe?
We sell our products both ways. If you buy, you pay an upfront fee then a nominal annual fee for support and product updates. If you subscribe you have no upfront fee. Instead you pay a monthly fee that includes support and updates. The monthly fee must be paid in order to use the product. Return to the top...

How many computers can I use my subscription on?
You can install the software on as many computers as you like. However, your fully-functional subscription will only work when the key is plugged in. If the USB key is not plugged in you will be using the software in trial mode. Return to the top...

Isn’t a subscription like renting?
That’s exactly right, a subscription is like renting. Subscription to any RoofLogic software module does not imply a long-term rent-to-own or lease arrangement. You are free to subscribe to the module for as long or as short as you’d like. Subscription fees paid are for the use of your software for that period. Talk with your tax professional about the distinct advantages software subscription has over old-fashioned software purchase. Return to the top...

Can I change my number of subscriptions?
Yes, you don’t need to cancel all your subscriptions with us. You can add, cancel and re-add subscriptions whenever you need without any penalty or undue fees. Return to the top...

How do I acquire an image?
RoofLogic does not provide images to its users. The images you obtain yourself could be ePlans, satellite images or even aerial photographs. In fact, whether you get your images from a free online service or a paid service, you can use them all with RoofCAD Digitizer. We suggest viewing How It Works for more information. Return to the top...

What format should I save my images in?
Digitizer readily accepts bitmaps (.BMP), JPEG images, .PCX, .PNG, .GIF and .TIFF formats. If you were hoping to use .PDF files, we recommend the using Universal Document Converter. Return to the top...

Does digitizer automatically draw the roof outline?
Boy, wouldn’t we love that to be true. With today’s technology it is possible to automatically approximate the outline of the roof but it’s nowhere near precise enough. For now, Digitizer does not automatically draw the roof outline for you. The drawing process is extremely simple and we suggest viewing How It Works for more information. Return to the top...

How do I get the takeoff record and what’s included?
The takeoff record is generated in real-time. This means that the moment you add something to your drawing is the same moment it appears in your takeoff record. We recommend viewing the sample reports on this site and then viewing How It Works for more information. Return to the top...

How long does is take to do a drawing/takeoff?
A good example is to tell you that each of the roofs in our "How it works section" took 10 minutes to draw. Thats from the point where you load the satellite image to the completed drawing. Return to the top...

Are there templates included?
Yes, we have commercial and residential templates for all paper sizes, from 8-1/2" x 11" to 36" x 48". The templates include a legend of symbols with descriptions and a title block area where you can put your company name and address. The templates are fully customizable so you can completely change the look if you want. Return to the top...

Are there any symbols included?
There are over 70 premade roofing symbols such as curbs, drains, scuppers, roof vents etc. If you own a RoofCAD license, you can even make your own. Return to the top...

What Our Customers Are Saying About Satellite/Digitizer

I have been using Roof Logic for a year now and I have found that my productivity has tripled. I do all my prep work from home using the digitizer and when I arrive at my prospects I have all the information I need to quickly and efficiently close the deal. Instead of being at a prospects for several hours I spend about half an hour; I still go up and inspect the roof, but the measurements have already been completed and I have my cost of the job before I leave for the sales call. When ordering I have been right on the money every time no excess materials left over and no running to the supplier at the last minute. Roof Logic has allowed me to double my income and work less hours! Anytime I have a problem Tony and all the Roof Logic team are always available to help! If you do not have this software you are costing yourself time and money!

With Digitizer, the time savings for inspectors, especially on complicated roofs, is tremendous. To be able to draw an existing roof from a satellite or aerial photo is a great help and saves hours on a larger roof. Other CAD software doesn’t hold a candle to RoofCAD’s ease of use. It really is designed with the roofer in mind.

Michael Wheeler

The aerial image takeoff module is a real time saver. We create a draft before the actual field inspection; the inspector notes exceptions and checks dimensions. Then, back at the office the inspector’s notes are entered and we have a professional drawing in significantly less time than before.

Dan Beck

Thanks RoofLogic for all your support. We have used the RoofCAD and Digitizer takeoff programs for all of our residential, industrial and commercial roofing needs for at least ten years. Everything from even the smallest Water Pump House shed to the larger Biomedical Research Facility at the University of Michigan was first drawn up on the RoofCAD program, and then estimated from there. Thank you for giving us upgradable, up-to-date, reliable software that allows us to do our job more adequately and efficiently.

RoofCAD with the Digitizer add-on lets me do everything I have to do much faster than with a conventional drawing program. And I love the Detail Symbol Library. I can make detail drawings just by dragging and dropping from a pre-made list.
