HOVER measurements are known for being exceptionally comprehensive. What is less visible to the eye is how highly accurate those measurements are, which is essential for retail contractors, restoration contractors, and insurance carriers alike.
To better quantify the accuracy of their roof measurements, HOVER engaged Haag Engineering to conduct an independent study using the HOVER mobile app along with two aerial providers.
Compared with two leading providers of aerial-based roof measurements, HOVER’s results were closer to Haag’s field measurements.
The study examined 40 roofs with pitches ranging from 1:12 to 12:12 and individual roof areas ranging from approximately 3.4 to 53 squares. Properties were primarily or completely surfaced with asphalt composition shingles and were located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the greater Houston area, and the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. HAAG staff measured each roof to the nearest inch. Participants were asked to capture the properties using the HOVER app. HAAG ordered Aerial reports for comparison.
