The hi-res imagery that’s re-engineering roofing By Kay Rose FIoR National Sales Director, EagleView. If you’re a roofing professional, imagine how much easier your job would be if you had a full overview of the roof even before visiting the site. Imagine if – with just a few clicks of your mouse – you could order a full roof measurement report that includes high-resolution images and precise dimensions of all the areas. Imagine being able to order materials without the worry of over- or under-ordering – no need to do a “guesstimate and add some” to cover yourself. EagleView® makes all of this a reality. Established in the US in 2008 and launched in the UK in November 2017, the world’s first-ever remote aerial roof measurement service creates 3D models that deliver highly accurate and detailed roof measurements. Proven technology At its core lies the patented Pictometry® technology which produces high-resolution imagery M25 showing the fronts and sides of buildings. Pictometry imagery provides oblique perspectives from 40 to 45-degree angles as well as an overhead view. These images are then stored and, when an EagleView roofing report is requested, advanced algorithms and data analytics are used to translate them into a highly accurate model of the property in question. These models then enable detailed structural measurements to be derived – including eaves, flashing, hips, verges, ridges and valleys. The reports are produced quickly – in a matter of hours – and available in a variety of file formats. Reducing risk, saving time Conducting a manual roof survey involves time travelling to and from the site, getting safe access to the roof and taking measurements, and then further time to create precise dimensional drawings. By replacing this manual approach with an EagleView PremiumReport™, that time is freed up for managing active contracts and pursuing new leads. And, not only does an EagleView PremiumReport accelerate workflow, its accuracy greatly reduces the risk of costly material miscalculations. Wider impact In the few years since EagleView was first established in the US, it has become the industry standard in aerial roof measurements. Roofing contractors throughout North America have quickly caught on to the resource and safety benefits, and increased number of contracts they win by using EagleView PremiumReports. Insurance companies and adjusters across the US have also embraced EagleView PremiumReports. In fact, following the wildfires that ravaged much of California during December 2017, EagleView captured and delivered high-resolution aerial images of the devastation in San Diego County so quickly that its insurance carrier partners were able to start viewing and responding to areas of severe need before the residents had even returned home.
