Find out how high-tech software and aerial imagery has changed the way metal professionals calculate property insights and measure installation projects with great precision!  

Technology has come a long way in the last two decades, transforming the way roofers and contractors do business. With highly innovative solutions like the geospatial software and aerial imagery from EagleView, contractors can now get accurate measurements and property insights unlike ever before! 

In an episode of the MetalCast podcast, Heidi J. Ellsworth sat down with Rob Soper of EagleView to discuss how their technology is helping to revolutionize the way roofers get the job done. With the combined efforts of EagleView and the Sherwin-Williams Roofing Passport, contractors are able to secure sales and give homeowners the most accurate roof possible.  

The technology used by EagleView is so advanced that the measurements and property insights they gather are accurate down to the sub-one inch. Rob explained why this capability is so beneficial when paired with the Roofing Passport, “Once the EagleView measurements are delivered [in Roofing Passport], it's delivered into the platform called Smart Build and that's where the secret sauce is made for the Roofing Passport. When you go in there, into the Smart Build part of the application, you can select whatever system, whatever standing seam metal system that you want, whether it's one-and-a-half-inch snap lock or one- and three-quarter-inch snap lock or mechanically fastened or ag panels. It's not just panels, it includes everything from the accessories to the trim to the panels and the entire system based on the XML data.”   

He continued, “It takes seconds to output this data and not only do we give you the puzzle pieces, but we give you the answer to the puzzle in the layout. So, the entire panel layout is right there in the system. It can also be delivered electronically to a machine, to a CSV file. So, you can send it right to a roll former and then automate the cutting rather than having to manually enter those things, those measurements back into the machine to do it.” 

With this capability, contractors who work with metal or are looking for a way to get into metal roofing can easily calculate their customers' needs in a precise and efficient manner. Utilizing the services of EagleView or programs like the Roofing Passport are paving the way for the future of the metal roofing industry and how contractors do business in an exciting new way.
