This GAF-Exclusive 3D Tool Can Help Close More Sales
All contractors want to save time when estimating or specifying a job, and this cool exclusive tool from GAF can help you do just that. The e360 3D Visualizer and Estimator is a free downloadable app that allows contractors to create detailed reports of a home. Plus, for a limited time, contractors can earn up to $125 in credits just for signing up and using it.
Here’s how it works:
A contractor downloads the free app (available on Android and iOS), then goes to a job site and takes eight pictures around the home. The app guides the contractor to help frame the photos appropriately. The photos are uploaded to the Cloud and in less than 24 hours, an unobstructed 3D rendering of the home is created, complete with measurements of the roof, siding, and windows.
The average report cost starts at $20 for up to 20 squares with just the roof measurements. Adding siding and windows brings the cost up to around $30. GAF factory-certified contractors may receive additional discounts — just sign up for the service at e360.gaf.com or check with your local sales rep for additional details.
Here are some other benefits:
- Accurate pricing… Since you have all the roof measurements, you can provide an accurate estimate to the homeowner.
- Saves money. Less waste from materials translates to more savings. In addition, the 3D modeling in itself is something normally not available. This feature is part of the app and included in the report.
- Saves time. One set of the eight photos gives you measurements for roof, siding, and windows, which alleviates the time a contractor would need to measure each part. The roof measurements include key areas like square footage, ridges, valleys, eaves, and rakes for a very comprehensive report.
- Use as a selling tool. The visualization part of this app allows contractors to share and render shingles, siding, and windows with homeowners.
