Put away the ladders and the tape measures. For about $50, EagleView Technologies can accurately measure a roof, saving time and money, even before materials are ordered.

Contractors simply submit the property’s address online at eagleview.com, at which point technicians pull high–resolution aerial images for measurement. Reports reveal details including length, pitch, area, and more.

Recently, EagleView added an interactive photo editor tool to its mobile app, letting users mark areas of roof damage or other details. Up to six annotated images can be uploaded to EagleView and added to the aerial measurement report. Advanced reports are available, as well as subscriptions to the service for companies that frequently use EagleView. Visit the Android marketplace  or iTunes app store  to download the EagleView app. Visit eagleview.com  for more information.
