This online calculator is designed to calculate the rafter length for the given dimensions of the roof of the building or a structure.

## Calculator

## Formula

Rafter Length using Angle = V + R/(2cos(A))

Rafter Length using Pitch = V + (R/2)sqrt(1+P^{2})

- V – overhang
- R – roof span
- P – pitch
