Tech Solution for Contractors adds Enhanced Aerial Images 4X Clearer than Google Maps

iRoofing augments its satellite measurement capabilities with high-res aerial imagery.

FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- iRoofing.org, a South Florida-based software company with a popular application used by construction, roofing, and real estate development contractors, this month released its newly developed Clearoof. The innovation leverages 3" sq. pixel aerial photography which is 4-times clearer than Google's 6" sq. pixel satellite images* and 16-times clearer than Apple Maps or Bing Maps. https://iroofing.org/roof-measurements/

On the left is a standard satellite image. On the right is the same property using Clearoof high-resolution aerial imagery. The Clearoof product is now available to iRoofing subscribers.

In addition to the higher resolutions, iRoofing's technology upgrade gives contractors a means to retrieve overhead images dating back several months. They can choose the date on which the clearest and most unobscured image was captured. Clear imagery is vital to accurate and efficient measurement.

"Our portable app has already given contractors a full-featured, affordable, do-it-yourself measurement tool leveraging satellite imagery and standard aerial images. The system automatically converts measurements into a full estimate that includes all labor, services, and materials, right down to the number of roofing nails needed," said Daniel Meridor, a co-CEO of iRoofing. "By developing Clearoof we have removed the last barrier to fulfilling our customers' complete needs," he said. Before, if a satellite or aerial image was hindered by obstructions such as springtime foliage, they were stuck with it. Now they can go back in time."

While the iRoofing application is robust and multi-faceted, Meridor, an architectural scholar and a designer, has made sure that it's extremely easy to use, lessening the apprehension some construction professionals have about transitioning to DIY technology. "As we consistently work to perfect the solution with improvements like Clearoof, we leave no reason for contractors to spend money on individual 3rd-party roof reports. Their confidence in our technology is reinforced. At the end of the day we are here to empower contractors," said Meridor.

Clearoof's addition to the iRoofing app extends its usefulness into other professions.  Landscape design companies, fence and decking contractors, paving companies, real estate brokers, architects, land developers, and others can benefit from iRoofing's high-resolution aerial images. The innovation may also help insurance providers substantiate property damage claims.
