Best construction app

I use this app all the time, especially when squaring a deck or foundation. Enter rise, run and tells you diagonal length. I calculate stairs, baluster spacing, along with any spacing you want, mostly my use with the app but does much much more, I use this app and sketchup, can build anything I want with them two.

Better than construction master

I'm a professional timber framer and I've used a construction master pro trig model for years. This can do all if that and much more. It goes beyond being a calculator and performs like a piece of software. I still use the CM for simple feet and inch stuff and BuildCalc for anything serious.

Build calc is by far the best

Hello my name is Luke P, I'm a professional framer out of NJ. I Been using Buildcalc for about a year now and I gotta say it's absolutely amazing! It gives you everything you need in roof framing- I do no most of all the formulas to be done without the calculator, but this really does save time in the field! Thanks Buildcalc!

OS updated now app won't open

This has been a great app! However, it won't work since my OS updated last weekend. Tried to contact app support but page cannot be found. Please update and fix! Needed to do roof calculations last week and it wouldn't work and I had no backup in the truck. Put me in a real pickle!! 5 stars if support was available and on the ball!! UPDATE!!!!! Found email adress for the developer and sent him an email with my phone # attatched. The guy called me back within 30 minutes!! He was at the store with his family on Sunday no less. Went straight to work on the problem and had me straightened back out in 45 minutes. All I can say is WOW! Changed to 5 star! Would give him 6 out of 5 for customet service alone!! Great response and thanks to BuildCalc!!

App has not been updated to support iPhone 5 after its been out for over a year. Don't buy this app, it's dead.

A phenomenal app that gets better.

I make my living as a carpenter and use this app all the time. It offers truly useful features that take it way beyond your typical Construction Master. Irregular hip and valley rafter layout is made simple, and the ability to print stair sections from frame to finish (with all relevant values attached) is incredible. And the developers keep making it better with truly useful improvements. Don’t let the price put you off—it’s well worth it. Love love love this app!

Fantastic

This app is better than the Construction Master 4 or 5 that I have used in the past. If not for all the great features the fact I lost ("had borrowed") 2 CM calculators but don't plan on losing or loaning my iPhone. Get the app, learn to use it, be a better builder!

Great Service!

Hi Ben, Thanks so much for the incredible service. So often when you buy something online you are stuck to figure it out on your own. It is refreshing to know that there are people who still value customer satisfaction. Best regards, Vince
