Enter the length of the tile (in), the length of the gutter overhang (in), and the length of the nib (in) into the Roof Tile Spacing Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Roof Tile Spacing.

## Roof Tile Spacing Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Roof Tile Spacing.

RTS = LT – LGO – LN

Variables:

• RTS is the Roof Tile Spacing (inches)
• LT is the length of the tile (in)
• LGO is the length of the gutter overhang (in)
• LN is the length of the nib (in)

## How to Calculate Roof Tile Spacing?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Roof Tile Spacing.

1. First, determine the length of the tile (in).
2. Next, determine the length of the gutter overhang (in).
3. Next, determine the length of the nib (in).
4. Next, gather the formula from above = RTS = LT – LGO – LN.
5. Finally, calculate the Roof Tile Spacing.
6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

length of the tile (in) = 3.5

length of the gutter overhang (in) = 1

length of the nib (in) = .30

RTS = LT – LGO – LN =  ?
