In recent years, roof measurements based on aerial imagery have revolutionized the way many restoration contractors work by eliminating some of the pains involved with measuring and estimating roof repairs. It’s also given early adopters an edge over competitors when bidding roof projects. Recent advancements in aerial data collection present another opportunity for restoration professionals to evolve and incorporate new ways to be more efficient and competitive.

New techniques and technology can now extract precise property data from high-resolution aerial imagery specifically designed to provide estimators with unprecedented insight on the roof projects they are bidding. This data can include a fully functional digital roof plan, information on all roof dimensions and slopes and a set of high-resolution aerial images - essentially everything an estimator needs to start estimating roof repair costs. The way contractors apply the data is what sets them apart from their competitors. Here are a few ways to maximize productivity and efficiency when incorporating aerial data into the estimating workflow.
