Upper & Lower Perimeters not matching

I am trying to figure out a way to make my upper and lower perimeters match.

My floor and ceiling square foot match but my carrier wants both to match. 

Can you help?

Do you happen to have a closet or other custom components added into this area? Simsol automatically accounts for the fact closets rarely have crown moulding or other line items that would use the upper perimeter value. For example if you were to add in a closet, Simsol will automatically increase the floor, wall, lower perimeter, and ceiling, but will leave the upper perimeter alone. If you need to get around this, you would have to manually manipulate your data using a custom entry. To do this, find out how much the upper perimeter needs to be increased by, select 'Custom' in the Area Component Entry screen, and then manually input the difference in the appropriate field.
