SmartBuild Systems, along with its partners Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings and EagleView, announced the launch of a new service available for customers of Sherwin-Williams. Roofing Passport is an integrated platform that completely automates the process of bidding on the reroofing of residential and commercial roofs using metal panels.

Roofing Passport is a joint effort that marries EagleView’s patented 3D roof geometry generation with the metal and trim specifying capability that SmartBuild built for its industry-leading post frame applications.

Once a user enters a street address into Roofing Passport, a 3D model of the roof populates in SmartBuild. The user selects a metal panel from a manufacturer’s inventory and SmartBuild automatically does all the rest.

According to Keith Dietzen, SmartBuild’s CEO, “Roofing Passport is truly a game-changer. Without ever leaving home or the office, a contractor can generate the most accurate bid of their life with less than 5 minutes of work. Unlike other systems that require users to manipulate geometry, or tell the software which pieces to use where, SmartBuild does all that thinking for you. Bid backlogs become a thing of the past.”
