Estimating site?

Where on the net can I find a building material estimation site?
I'm looking to estimate materials I'll need to build a 50 X 50 hip roof with a 5/12 pitch. Squares of shingles, sheathing and so on.

Thanks in advance, Tony

I don't know if Menards offers it online but I do believe they offer this as an in-store service.

Try get-a-quote.net

It works good. Go to your state from the pull down menu then search for item. It breaks it down into materail and labor costs as well as time estimations for crew hours.

good luck
