CertainTeed, EagleView Help Siding Contractors Maximize Productivity with Customized Wall Measurement Tool
Patented technology enables more accurate diagrams and professional reports
(Valley Forge, Pa.) – CertainTeed Corporation, a leading North American manufacturer of building materials, today announced a new association with EagleView Technologies, a premier technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics and GIS solutions. The new partnership offers CertainTeed credentialed siding contractors access to EagleView’s state-of-the-art, three-dimensional wall measurement reports for exterior projects including siding, windows, doors and painting. The full color, high-resolution photos and clean, organized presentations and diagrams assist in timely information gathering, reduce overall costs and increase efficiency and productivity of business operations.
“EagleView is already well known in the roofing industry for its unique aerial measurement services that save contractors time and money by allowing them to walk into the home with all of the details of the project,” said Matt Gibson, director of channel marketing for CertainTeed Siding. “When they developed the same technology for siding, we knew it would be a great benefit to our contractors —so they could spend less time measuring and more time closing sales.”
The tablet and laptop-friendly, patented wall measurement tool eliminates the need for multiple trips to the property by having the measurements before visiting the jobsite, while improving accuracy versus traditional hand measuring for walls, windows and doors. Overall costs are also reduced for inspections and estimating, resulting in increased customer satisfaction and fewer siding replacement and repair claims.
“We are excited to provide CertainTeed siding contractors the latest tools to be successful in their businesses,” said Rishi Daga, EVP of commercial sales for EagleView. “The professional presentation, 3D diagrams and color photos of the property really make an impact on homeowners and position the contractor as a forward-thinking company that embraces technology.”
Specifically, each wall report includes a 3D diagram, total square footage of wall areas, number and total square feet of windows and doors, north, south, east and west elevation diagrams, and a summary page that recaps total wall area and total wall count.
