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...

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. A subscription does not imply a long-term rent-to-own or lease arrangement. You are free to subscribe
to the module for as long as you like. Subscriptions are based on a one year contract. At the end of each contract you may subscribe for another year. 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, at the end of the contract year you may adjust the number of subscriptions you want active for the coming contract year. Return to the top...

Subscriptions started before the next full period will be billed on a prorated amount for the remainder of the current period plus the full

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...

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...
