In partnership with SRS Distribution, we fired up Zoom and discussed how HOVER technology is helping contractors do their jobs better. Using HOVER technology and SRS Distribution’s platform called Roof Hub, contractors have access to powerful tools to help them measure, quote, and complete jobs more efficiently.
Nathan Stump, Director of Marketing at HOVER moderated, while John DeRosa from SRS Distribution and Garrett Flowers from HOVER shared their knowledge of how HOVER and Roof Hub are working together.

“I consistently describe HOVER technology as a game-changer because it helps our contractors close the ‘trust gap’. ” – John DeRosa, SRS Distribution
Customers consistently rate contractors (and especially roofers) as the ‘least trustworthy’ partners, according to the BBB. This is likely because homeowners are unable to see the final product. Purchasing a new roof isn’t like buying a car that you can see for yourself before you purchase. HOVER is helping contractors close the ‘trust gap’ that John mentioned by showing customers what they’re getting before they even break ground.
HOVER technology creates a complete 3D model of either an entire property or just a roof. These models include accurate measurements, which help contractors make precise estimates for materials and labor. Furthermore, these 3D models are a powerful visualization tool, helping contractors show customers where the product will go and what the final job might look like. This builds transparency and trust.
A recent study from Haag Engineering has shown that HOVER measurements are more accurate than either aerial or satellite measurements. HOVER’s ground-based measurements are an average of 5% more accurate than either of the aforementioned options. Why? First off, we are we closer to the property (20-30 ft away rather than from way up in the air). We are also measuring the property in real-time, meaning we are accounting for any recent additions or changes.
HOVER technology has created a streamlined process, even as the pandemic changes the flow of daily life. Using HOVER Connect, contractors have the ability to measure, quote, and share a job on an app-based platform, keeping their teams and their customers safe during these socially distanced times.
