What is EagleView Technology?
EagleView is a technology provider of aerial imagery, data analytics and geographic information system solutions. They fly planes across America, gathering high quality photos of roofs.
How Does NorthFace Construction Utilize EagleView Technology?
We can then order these photos and information from EagleView, which includes a total breakdown of the roof and the dimensions, sorted into different file types for different estimating softwares. Once we receive the files, we can use it to find the square footage, make models of roofs, autofilling, and more.
Another feature that makes EagleView great for us is their reports that contain the dimensions and other information that is customized for Northface Construction. That way, we can deliver them to our clients, who appreciate being involved with the roofing process as well as the transparency these reports provide.
What Problem Does it Solve?
At Northface Construction, we use EagleView Technology Measurements to eliminate time, especially for complicated roofs. Instead of doing the measurements on our own, we can use the images we receive to make these estimates much faster.
