Atlas Roofing Corporation Announces Partnership With HOVER

Atlas Roofing Corporation has announced a new partnership with HOVER, the platform that generates accurate, interactive 3D models of any property. Atlas Roofing’s shingle product lines will now be available within the HOVER platform, allowing its customer base even more flexibility when it comes to customer engagement and project estimation.

Atlas will integrate multiple roofing products, featuring Scotchgard Protector from 3M, into the HOVER platform. These products include: Atlas Pinnacle Pristine with the all-new Natural Expressions color palette, StormMaster Shake, StormMaster Slate, Legend Designer 3-tab shingles and GlassMaster Shingles.

“We are excited to have our product offering represented within the HOVER platform, providing our contractors with a powerful interface to grow their businesses and engage homeowners,” says Stan Bastek, Director of Marketing and Sales Development at Atlas Roofing.

“HOVER allows contractors to use their time more strategically by eliminating the guesswork of visualizing different product options on the 3D model of a customer’s actual home,” explains Spencer Warden, Director of Partnerships at HOVER.

In addition to the interactive 3D model, HOVER also provides contractors with all of the detailed exterior measurements needed for an accurate estimate. This means time that was previously spent hand-measuring exterior projects can now be used to focus on the project details and establish greater relationships with customers.

HOVER is available in the App Store and Google Play. Users can try out their first property for free.

CertainTeed and HOVER Announce Partnership

CertainTeed announced its partnership with HOVER, the platform that generates accurate, interactive 3-D models of any property. CertainTeed product lines are now available on the HOVER platform.

Many exterior contractors are already using HOVER to receive interactive 3-D models and detailed exterior measurements of properties. This allows them to save time on measuring, creating an estimate and closing new business. Thanks to the partnership, contractors who work with CertainTeed roofing and siding products can now use HOVER’s design features to quickly show homeowners what CertainTeed products and colors will look like on their home.

“This partnership was put in place to help contractors better engage their customers and generate more business,” said Jay Butch, Director of Contractor Programs for CertainTeed Roofing. “By showing property owners what CertainTeed products and colors would look like on their actual home, contractors can help homeowners better visualize the finished project.”

“HOVER works for nearly any home, generating accurate wall measurements from just a few photos taken with the app,” said Matt Gibson, Director, Vinyl and Marketing Communications for CertainTeed Siding.

“HOVER allows contractors to work efficiently by removing the guesswork of visualizing different product options on the 3D model of a customer’s home. In addition to the interactive 3D model, HOVER will also provide contractors with detailed exterior measurements needed to quote an installation of a roof or siding using CertainTeed’s product offering,” explained Derek Halliday, vice president of product at HOVER.

CertainTeed roofing and siding product lines are now available on the HOVER platform, which can be downloaded from the App Store or the Google Play Store. First-time users will receive 30 days to try out the platform, and $125 in HOVER cash to get started.

Standard Industries Renews Partnership and Investment in 3-D Modeling Platform HOVER

Standard Industries, a global industrial company with interests in building materials, aggregates, and related investment businesses in public equities and real estate, and the parent company of GAF, announced a renewed partnership and investment in HOVER, a platform that generates accurate 3-D models of any property.

According to the company, Standard is committed to harnessing the power of technology to improve its industrial operating businesses. By creating innovative solutions in the roofing and waterproofing industry, Standard not only enhances its products, but importantly, can help improve the way that its customers and contractor base conduct their business.

The investment is the latest milestone in GAF’s longstanding partnership with HOVER. In 2016, GAF became the first roofing materials manufacturer to utilize HOVER’s 3-D technology, recognizing the opportunity to help contractors build their business, save time and costs, while giving homeowners the chance to try out new GAF products before making a purchasing decision. By eliminating the time-consuming and often arduous process of taking measurements by hand, the GAF e360 mobile app powered by HOVER has changed the way roofing contractors do business, according to the company.

“Our investment in and partnership with HOVER reflects our focus on identifying and supporting technologies that are catalysts for change in our industry,” said Kathy Reiland, Head of M&A for Standard Industries. “Our contractors are realizing the benefits of HOVER’s technology and we look forward to continuing to work with the HOVER team to create state-of-the-art solutions for our customers.”

Together with HOVER, GAF launched the GAF e360 mobile app to their contractor base, with thousands of contractors that are now active users of the platform. GAF will add new features to their e360 mobile app exclusively for certified contractors, including the best pricing on the market, dedicated training resources and a suite of enhanced membership options.

“We have received tremendously positive feedback from our network of GAF certified contractors about GAF e360 powered by HOVER,” said Jim Schnepper, President of GAF. “Contractors have increased their close rates, saved money by creating less waste due to more accurate measurements, created interactive and engaging experiences for homeowners and most importantly, experienced significant labor time savings.”

GAF contractors can learn more and download the e360 app via the Apple App Store or Google Play.
