EagleView Unveils Benchmark Waste Calculation

EagleView announced the release of its benchmark waste calculation, Suggested Waste Factor (SWF). According to the company, SWF will provide customers with an objective, third-party estimate how much material and labor are required to replace a roof. It is designed to help contractors avoid excess costs and production delays, while assisting insurance companies in accurately paying claims and informing supplemental coverage discussions — effectively cutting out significant and costly processes in both industries.

SWF can be used in real-time, as EagleView provides roof measurements that take the unique characteristics of each property into consideration, without any manual input. In August, EagleView is scheduled to unveil SWF Wave 2 technology,which enhances the 3D visualizer model and implements wall renderings and measurements. According to the company, valuable sales tools can now be generated without ever setting foot on a property. Contractors will be able to show homeowners a complete 3D structure,including walls and wall measurements. SWF will break the age-old stereotypes of construction estimates being incorrect and vague and will enable contractors to win more bids with real-time data and visualization tools.

“Here at EagleView, we’re constantly looking to see how we can help our customers solve their biggest problems using the latest technology,” said Michael Park, the Chief Product and Marketing Officer of EagleView. “When roofs are damaged due to normal wear and tear or as the result of a storm, a ‘guesstimation game’ begins in which contractors and insurance carriers try to determine exactly how much material and labor are required to replace a roof. The calculation is often very subjective. Every contractor has a different approach and while it may work for them, it’s not consistent. Some apply standard waste percentages based on the complexity of a roof or the experience of a crew, while more inexperienced roofers pick a number and hope for the best. With EagleView’s latest enhancement to its roof reports, we’re offering a more scientific and consistent approach to helping customers calculate the waste they can expect on residential roof replacements.”

The new Suggested Waste Factor calculation is now available in all residential 3D roof reports. These reports can be accessed from any desktop or from iOS or Android mobile devices using the EagleView App
