Why Should You Skip Manual Roof Measurements?

As a roofing contractor or construction business owner, you may be searching for more efficient methods to measure a roof. The tried and true method of manual roof measurement is still fairly popular amongst roofers, but the new technological advances in sales enablement are hard to ignore. Businesses have widely started implementing sales enablement and project management technology, and in the roofing industry specifically, sales enablement technology has almost entirely removed the necessity of manual roof measurement. Software such as SubcontractorHub offers roofing construction companies aerial design tools which remove the need to climb up onto customers’ roofs.

But why would roofing contractors want to stop taking manual measurements? The reality is that increased efficiency improves sales for roofing companies. By removing the time necessary to travel out to the location and climb up onto the roof and take the measurements, roofers can speed up their turnaround and see better profit than businesses that stick to traditional methods. So, to remain competitive, turning to technology is any roofing company’s best bet. It’s also worth noting that manual roof measurement is often dangerous and can also be prone to human calculation errors. In this blog post, we will discuss in detail why you should skip manual measurements and adapt to measuring tools for the growth of your roofing business.

Safety Concerns

One of the most important reasons to consider roof measurement tools for your roofing business is the safety of your team because roofers run a high risk of injury while climbing up the ladder and moving around on the roof. Roofing-related accidents can lead to serious injury and occur more often than you think. Sadly, roofers are three times more likely to sustain a fatal accident than any other industry. Implementing an aerial measurement tool can significantly reduce this risk by reducing the time your roofers will have to spend on location.

Error-Proof Measurement

By utilizing SubcontractorHub's roof measurement tool, you can eliminate the possibility of human error and obtain precise measurements quickly.
