By Angela Brewster, Nearmap.

In celebration of National Roofing Week, Nearmap shared the Top 10 Ways that aerial imagery has helped transform this busy industry.

It’s no secret that roofers have an unsual view of the world on a daily basis. Their ability to see things from a whole new perspective is at the heart of what they do.  Roofers are shifting their perspective even more by using aerial imagery to grow their business. 

#1 – Work from anywhere

Nearmap imagery is cloud-based, giving you access to the information you need whenever you want it, on your laptop, tablet, or phone.

#2 - Save time and money on bids

Building off of working from anywhere, you can save time and money by working up a bid or proposal from your office without having to set foot on an actual site.

#3 – Generate more prospects

By working remotely and saving time in travel, you’ll be able to generate more bids and proposals which in turn will help grow your business.

#4 – See greater detail

With advances in aerial imagery, the high-resolution aerial maps can show detail never seen before. Aerial imagery is almost four times more clear than low resolution satellite imagery. 

#5 – Historical perspective

Nearmap captures aerial imagery 2-3 times per year which means you can see the state of a roof over a variety of seasons, both leaf on and leaf off. You can also do a side-by-side comparison to track changes of a roof over time.

#6 – Measure, pan, zoom

Through MapBrowser (Nearmap’s online tool), roofers can pan, zoom, and measure a roof from a variety of different angles, annotate it, and export it.

#7 – Inspect a property

Using the vertical view, roofers can inspect ground conditions, see access to the roof, review property features, road networks, and proximity to other buildings and trees

#8 – Greater building information

Commercial roofers need a quite a bit of information when it comes to a large roofing project. With Nearmap’s aerial imagery, you can analyze the depth of a parapet, identify key access points, HVAC equipment and other important roof features. Use the online tool to annotate the imagery enabling placement of material, identify trouble spots, and obtain general measurements.

#9 – High-res imagery for proposals 

Impress your customers with high-res images of the property you plan to work on. Your prospects will gain confidence from your detailed approach.

#10 – Increase customer satisfaction

When using aerial imagery, roofers can address problems at a much faster rate, creating better issue resolution, faster claims processing, and overall enhanced customer service.

In the end, being proactive about how you use aerial imagery will not only place you ahead of your competition in roofing, but will allow you to find opportunities in many new places. Discover a whole new perspective with high-resolution aerial imagery and transform the way you work.
