The lower edge of a roof that hangs beyond the exterior wall of the house to protect the walls of the house from rainwater.
The length of the fascia applied on the eaves.
The vertical, decorative board under a roof edge, often carrying the gutter.
The weatherproof material installed between roof sheathing and the finish materials to prevent water leakage.
A decorative board underneath the eaves where the soffit terminates, serving no other purpose than looks. It’s placed where the top of siding meets another substrate.
The point at which two walls form an internal angle, as in the corner of a room.
The level bottom of siding. Most vinyl contractors use starter strip and most fiber cement contractors use starter strip or first course.
The united inches, square footage, tops lengths, sills lengths and sides lengths of all windows, doors, garages and other potential openings.
The point at which two walls form an external angle, one you usually can walk around.
The incline angle of a roof surface, given as a ratio of the rise (in inches) to the run (in feet). Also called the slope.
The slanting edge of a gable roof that runs from the eave to the ridge of the roof.
The length of the fascia applied on the rakes.
The horizontal line at the junction of the top edges of two sloping roof surfaces.
The external angle formed by the meeting of two sloping sides of a roof.
The combined length of the ridges, hips, valleys, rakes, gutters and eaves of a roof.
The percentage of roof material ordered in excess of the estimated material needed for construction.
Small units of material which are laid in a series of overlapping rows to cover a roof.
Flashing that lays under the shingles in the "V" area of the roof valley.
The exterior material applied to the walls of a building, meant to protect the walls from the effects of weather and insulate.
The element forming the lower side of an opening, as a door sill or window sill.
The percentage of siding material ordered in excess of the estimated material needed for construction.
The incline angle of a roof surface, given as a ratio of the rise (in inches) to the run (in feet). Also called pitch.
Sloped frieze board
A decorative board underneath the eaves where the soffit terminates, serving no other purpose than looks.
The bottom of siding that is sloped, often a roof to wall intersection on an incline.
The underside of the portion of the roof that extends out beyond the sidewalls of the house.
Soffit square footage
Square footage of the eave soffit.
Individual pieces of sheet metal material used to flash walls, chimneys, dormers and such along the slope of a roof.
The framing around a window or door, on either the inside or outside.
Areas that are not captured in photos. HOVER provides square footage measurements for these areas but cannot determine material, trims or openings.
The "V" shaped area of a roof where two sloping roofs meet.
A corner where siding meets another substrate. Most vinyl contractors use J-channel and most fiber cement contractors use a trim board.
The percentage of material ordered in excess of the estimated material needed for construction.
