We’ve always prided ourselves on how fast RoofSnap has made roof measuring. While we’ve seen some serious tape wranglers out there, none can match our software for pure speed.

With the first snow of the season already past our offices here in Columbus, Ohio. We’re definitely feeling the winter season closing in on us.

That doesn’t work is over with though, this week’s blog is here to give you some suggestions on how to do more for your company than hibernate this winter season.
In the not-so-distant days of roofing's past, there were only a few ways to obtain your linear and area measurements.

If you've been a RoofSnap subscriber or a drone-flying roofing contractor for any amount of time, you know that leaves are one of the few things that stand between you and a clear view of your project's roof.
