Atlas Roofing’s Redesigned Website Provides Better Contractor Assistance

Atlas Roofing unveiled a redesign of its website recently. An improved visual design and upgraded functionality combine to deliver a best-in-class online information and contractor assistance portal. The website redesign continues Atlas Roofing’s tradition of delivering a superior customer service experience and implementing technical advancements to better serve their markets.

The new website design offers users an enhanced online experience with efficient navigation, fast access to product information and technical updates to ensure accessibility for as many visitors as possible. Contractors will have continued access to Atlas’ popular selection of apps and online tools:

    • Atlas ProApp
    • Atlas DOCS
    • Atlas Signature Select Roofing System
    • Atlas Select Your Roof App
    • Atlas Shingle Visualizer

“Consumers in general rely on the internet as an important buying-decision tool,” says Brian Short, business unit manager at Atlas. “The website redesign gives residential contractors an always-accessible resource to assist with marketing, sales and customer service.”

Atlas consistently offers residential roofing contractors web-based solutions to augment traditional business development resources. Atlas online tools and apps, such as ProAPP, Atlas Docs and the Atlas Signature Select program, provide everything a roofing contractor needs to run a professional business. By offering contractors mobile-ready solutions, the manufacturer meets the needs of an industry that conducts much of its business in the field.

In accordance with the company’s core commitment to customer service, users can continue to complete warranty registrations via the Atlas website at their convenience. Online warranty registration provides a more efficient and documented process that takes less time to complete.

As an information portal, the newly redesigned website offers industry resources and product details. Atlas intends to do more than simply sell or market products, the company wants to assist visitors with increasing their roofing IQ. From common roof problems, to energy conservation, to various building code standards, the site offers a complete roofing library.

GAF Offers Free Tools to Assist Roofing Contractors

GAF offers innovative tools to help roofing contractors save time and improve their businesses. The newest releases include the GAF Pro Roof Estimator app, the GAF Tips for Pros app and an Android version of its popular GAF Remodeler iPad app. It also debuted the GAF Roofing Shingle Design & Style Guide on its website with HGTV celebrities Genevieve Gorder and Carter Oosterhouse.

GAF is focused on helping contractors to improve their in-home sales process. In a recent third-party study, 43 percent of homeowners said they would be more likely to choose a contractor if he/she had a professional-looking estimate. Based on this need, GAF announces the GAF Pro Roof Estimator iPad App, which is available to GAF factory-certified contractors. This app offers a streamlined, customizable estimation process including roof measurement and inspection pictures, product and warranty selection, as well as other key aspects of creating a professional estimate that will help contractors close more sales.

GAF is also launching the GAF Tips From Pros app to provide assistance in the in-home selling process. This comprehensive collection of best practices from top contractors includes tips on measurement, inspections, warranties and other key areas of the in-home sales process. The app features photos and videos; users can also submit their own tips. Available for the iPad, GAF Master Elite and Certified Contractors can download it from the iTunes App Store.

In addition, using popular HGTV design celebrities’ advice on color and style, GAF introduced the Roofing Shingle Design & Style Guide, a web-based program. Created to help homeowners identify the roof styles that best match their home’s architectural style and their personal taste, this online, interactive shingle selection guide is both visually engaging and educational.

Finally, based on the success of its GAF Remodeler app for iPad, GAF announces a version of the app that is available for the Android tablet. This app allows contractors to take a photo of their prospect’s house and then quickly and accurately map the roof with just a tap of the screen. The homeowner can immediately select and apply any GAF Shingle within their region with a single touch. The app has helped GAF contractors demonstrate the beauty of GAF Shingles, eliminating one of the biggest impediments to closing the sale: answering the question, “How will it look on my house?”

The portfolio of GAF mobile apps enables our contractors to receive real world peer-to-peer advice from some of the best GAF contractors in the business while also providing a platform for our contractors to make an immediate impression with homeowners. “The collective power of our mobile apps will help our contractors make a first impression that is sure to help differentiate them from the competition, providing them with a distinct market advantage,” stated Leslie Franklin, senior product manager at GAF.
