(Malvern, Pa.) – Contractors who specialize in exterior remodeling projects have a new estimating tool to help them close more sales faster. CertainTeed, North America’s leading brand of building products, introduces SnapQuote™, a revolutionary new time-saving mobile estimating tool that helps siding contractors perform estimates and create proposals for their clients during the very first visit.

The process for using SnapQuote is simple:

  • Using an iPad® camera, contactors will take a picture of their client’s home and outline the area or lineal footage of each surface. 

  • In a few clicks, they’ll select the CertainTeed siding and trim products that their customer wants, add up the quantities and generate the cost. 

  • Personalize the proposal with their company’s information and it’s ready to print on a portable printer.

“We are excited to offer our contractors another resource to help them continue to build their business and better serve their customers,” said Matt Gibson, marketing director of CertainTeed Siding. “Our team is constantly looking for innovations to make contractor/customer engagement more streamlined – SnapQuote delivers that experience.”

To simplify the process and get customers to sign on the dotted line all in the first visit, go to to set up your account, download the app and get started. No tape measure needed.
