Born out of a desire to integrate visual data with existing rooftop data to help digitally transform the way rooftop assessments/takeoffs are performed and deliver even greater long-term results, learn how John Kiesel of Division 7 Roofing and Kerrick Willis have perfected the inspection process.
“It leads back to the problems we had at the beginning,” says Kerrick. Problems with old data, hard to assess locations and human error drove Imagine Technologies Group to innovation.
Optelos’ visual inspection platform and drone captured data produces high-resolution images and 2D and 3D models for detailed roof assessments, providing unique insights into the conditions of their roofs, as well as assisting in the planning and inventory management of new roofing construction and repair projects.
Watch this video to get a taste of what the system looks like and the specific ways using photogrammetry for roof assessments and take offs makes your job easier.
Showing an example of the detailed 3D modelling available with their technology, Kerrick demonstrates how this process works to help visualize inspections better than photo renderings. John then shows us how you can make accurate measurements using this data and the functionality of virtually being able to do a takeoff.
“I can’t count the amount of money or time we have saved — or even how much safer this technology has made us,” says John.
The technology is looking to the future of improving the industry at large, not only in time and money saved, but in advancing training.
“When I look at this technology I think ‘Where can I go with this?’ and I go to training,” John Kenney of Cotney Attorneys and Consultants adds. “So what we're going to do with that is turn it into training. For example, estimating training can be elevated with such detailed technology.”
Watch the entire video to see the program in action and learn more about how integrating it into your business will help make your job easier.
