Hi Guys,

Do you know of any other services besides Eagle View that do Aerial Roof Measurement Reports?

Eagle View seems like they do a good job....but seem very expensive.

Thanks!!

Core Logic is  a very reputable company. I have not used them, however, I am familiar and know they do very good work.

EagleView has patents on the process and they defend them pretty aggressively. There is a chance that the service you use now, may not be around later. Aerialogics, Roofers411, roofwalk, skytek... they have all been curled up. We will see how well the new guys hang in there. They can probably do pretty well on the smaller less complex roofs, but once it gets really crazy cut up, You will probably lose accuracy.

http://www.aerialprecisionreports.com is what I use.  I have had no issues with accuracy no matter the size or complexity of the roof.  @JakeD  I know Aerialogics was shut down by eagleview bc they were using pictometry photos and software to measure the roofs.  Most of the others are using satellite images.  Roofers411 is now roofshots and roofwalk joined up with Atlas Corporation.

This is the new type of technology that just amazes me.  How common is it to use this in the world of roofing?

Basically all the insurance companies are pulling EagleView measurements if they are available.  https://roofscope.com/ is another one. Nice bunch of guys. I like them because they do takeoffs on blueprints and have a bunch of other measurement services. It is a bit of a toss up, I think EagleView is probably the most accurate for large cut up roofs.

As time goes on, it will get better and better.

Hey Guys I would like to clear up a few things, Aerialogics was not shut down by Eagleview, they tried however the patent office find that this process was before Eagleview and deemed the patents as questionable, you can read more here - http://www.prweb.com/releases/2013/4/prweb10629390.htm 

JakeD you are right about most of the new companies, most new companies have limited experience and technology to manage the fast paced and the accuracy required for this industry.

I useto work for Aerialogics before they closed and since I have been on my own, to date I have measured over 3000 roofs, I managed to create a platform of this service at RoofModel.com
