Have you ever wanted an easy-to-access measurement report for all your roofing projects? The kind of report that you can use to help you place orders for the exact amount of materials you need to get the job done right? With the Roofing Passport from Sherwin-Williams, contractors can easily access measurement reports from EagleView that make metal roofing jobs significantly easier.
The Roofing Passport platform was designed to give roofing contractors all the tools they need for any roofing job that comes their way. In an episode of MetalTalk™, we spoke with Rob Soper, senior business development manager at EagleView, about the platform and how contractors are already seeing amazing results by using it. Essentially how it works is, contractors can order data reports for their jobs directly on the platform and from there, EagleView will give them a wealth of measurement information.
“The whole model is built in 3D. You can see the dimensions down to the sub one inch on all these things,” he said. “It's not a flat diagram. We actually have the pitches and everything. So you can see the slopes of all the facets here.”
Another great feature available on this platform is that you can actually see different measurements and pricing estimates based on the desired roofing system. From clay tiles to asphalt to metal roofs, you’ll get access to dimensions for everything. Although the diagrams and measurements you get are complex, it’ll save you lots of time on getting all the measurements yourself.
“When I show this kind of documentation to contractors, that's when people's eyes light up and go, ‘You have solved a problem that we've had for years’” Rob said. “And with literally a few clicks of a button, you get this output and it's ready to go and be delivered to your supplier.”
