Hover vs. Eagleview Roofing
Aerial vs. Onsite
We are now at the point where we can give someone a home improvement estimate without having to lay a hand on the house.
This is because companies like HOVER allow us to get a fully rendered and measured 3D model of any home simply by transforming photos taken with your smartphone. This has helped contractors and insurance carriers to become more efficient, reduce their costs, and minimize closing times all through an app.
The accuracy of onsite measurements is more accurate than a plane flying hundreds of feet higher. The aerial measurements are usually rounded to the nearest foot rather than the in-person measurements where they get down to the inch.
- Review Measurements – Access all roof and siding measurements within the 3D model in their app or online. Or export via PDF, Excel, or other file formats. Design in 3D – Change the roof, siding, and windows using real materials from brands like GAF, JamesHardie, and Alside. See the finished project with their fully shareable 3D model.
