New solution integrates Renoworks FastTrack technology and makes it easier to measure, estimate, and design a metal roof project remotely
PORTLAND, OR, and CALGARY, AB, May 19, 2020 – Renoworks Software Inc. (TSXV:RW) (“Renoworks”), the leading end-to-end visualization platform for the building construction industry, and Metal Roofing Alliance (“MRA”), the leading non-profit organization representing the U.S. and Canada residential metal roofing industry, today announced the launch of the new Metal Roofing Measurement & Design Tool, intended to help contractors produce faster estimates remotely and enable homeowners to make better-educated decisions about installing metal roofing on their homes.
Simply by entering a property address, the new solution leverages Renoworks’ FastTrack feature-set and technology to transform pre-existing aerial measurement data and street-view images into interactive 3D models and realistic visualizations of the home. The resulting interactive project can then be designed with thousands of combinations of metal roofing products and colors, with all of the roof measurements needed to prepare an initial project estimate.
PROMOTING ADOPTION OF REMOTE DIGITAL TOOLS
Remote measurement and estimation technology continues to gain traction in the roofing industry. Renoworks’ combination of interactive 3D modeling and photo-realistic visualization in the new Metal Roofing Measurement & Design Tool presents a powerful solution to streamline project planning and estimation processes in a single, consumer-facing interface. Benefits of the new tool include:
- Enabling metal roofers to quickly obtain measurements and make initial estimates remotely, without the need to visit the home;
- Allowing homeowners to see the value of a metal roof and make better decisions by designing 3D models and realistic visualizations of their own home; and
- Fostering better coordination and connection between homeowners and metal roofing professionals with a shared, online interactive visualization of the project.
“As an organization dedicated to the advancement of the metal roofing industry, the Metal Roofing Alliance is always looking for solutions to help our members and their customers.” said Renee Ramey, executive director of MRA. “We are pleased to offer this new solution to our members and the public and look forward to seeing its impact on the measurement, estimation and design process for metal roofing projects across the US and Canada.”
“The industry is collectively experiencing an acceleration in the adoption of digital tools due to COVID-19 and social distancing requirements.” Said Doug Vickerson, CEO of Renoworks. “The Metal Roofing Measurement & Design Tool is a solution that is needed now more than ever to connect homeowners with contractors and building product brands. We are very pleased to partner with Metal Roofing Alliance to make this timely solution available to help contractors carry on business virtually while educating homeowners about the value of metal roofing products.”
