Calculate the square footage area of a Hip Roof

Spike's Calculators

The square footage of a Hip roof area is identical to the square footage of a Gable roof of the same size. The only difference in this calculation to the one for a Gable roof area is the amount of the Ridge. The top ridge will be shorter than the one of the Gable roof, but the four hips will add to the Ridge length.
