AppliCad Roofing and Solar Planning Software

AppliCad has a world wide reputation for developing the best roof estimating software. This is as much to do with our customers as it is the company's vision. AppliCad's customers provide input to what functions the software needs to perform and that challenges the AppliCad team to make the software meet the need. AppliCad is arguably the most innovative company in the business having invented some of the processes that roofers now take for granted.

Yes it is true, AppliCad wouldn't be anywhere without the input from the customers who are the drivers for change. Listed below are the software modules for various roof systems and products.


Software that Works! - for every roof and solar system.


Solar Wizard

(for all solar system planning)

SolarWizard is a 3D modelling program that calculates solar radiation and shadows on a 3D model of the client's structure and helps determine the optimum location of solar assets such as PV arrays and solar thermal equipment. Given the ready availability of aerial image libraries to the construction sector, accessible via the web and from specialist vendors, the re-designed image digitising tools in the new AppliCad Solar Wizard enable every consultant, contractor or installer to prepare accurate client proposals from the desk without the need for an expensive site visit, at least until a commitment from the customer has been received.  Combining this functionality with the new shadow analyser and the solar radiation calculator allows solar industry professionals to prepare very detailed client proposals at the initial stage without leaving their desk.
