HOVER Launches First-In-Market Solution To Deliver Roof Squares Within Minutes

HOVER Now provides a roof square estimate within minutes, allowing contractors to create a quote while still on site with a homeowner.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 21, 2018 – HOVER, the platform that generates accurate, interactive 3D models of any property, today introduced HOVER Now, a feature that provides an estimate of the roof squares within 30 minutes of submitting photos of a house in the HOVER app. HOVER is the first company to deliver a roof square estimate within minutes, allowing contractors to create a quote while still onsite with a homeowner.

“HOVER Now lets contractors use their time more strategically and shorten the sales cycle,” said A.J. Altman, CEO and Founder of HOVER. “By offering a roof square estimate within minutes, contractors can give a quote to the homeowner during their first visit. They can also devote the time saved on measuring to establishing a personal relationship with the homeowner by walking them through the project and addressing any concerns. This inevitably increases their chance of closing the deal on the spot.”

HOVER Now is a vital sales tool for roofing contractors, enabling them to create an estimate and quickly present homeowners with a quote that safeguards their profit margin.

“HOVER Now’s quick turnaround time is impressive. On average, we are receiving the roof square estimates within 10 minutes,” said Carl Holt, General Manager – Saint Louis Branch at Erie Construction. “And the estimates are highly accurate. Thanks to this feature, we can now double check our quote on the spot and close the deal. It’s a game changer for our business.”

HOVER Now is available to contractors with access to HOVER’s Professional or Premium membership at $10/property or $5/property, respectively. Contractors can also easily upgrade their HOVER Now to receive an interactive 3D model and all the detailed measurements for either the roof or the complete exterior of the property to better engage the homeowner, create precise material lists, and efficiently coordinate with their installation crews.
