Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance and Weatherproofing Technologies Incorporated (WTI) have always been at the forefront of the roofing technology game. They’ve always aimed to please their customers by going above and beyond in every roofing project they do. In recent years, they have been working with Zeitview, formerly DroneBase, an inspection software company that uses drones to provide construction companies with valuable data about their projects.
Tremco and WTI initially sought out Zeitview when they were looking for an easy and safe way to capture before and after pictures of their customers’ roofs. The companies began their relationship three years ago when they met up at the International Roofing Expo (IRE). Not only can Tremco easily offer this before and after feature to their customers, but they’ve found that this partnership has led to bigger things for all of them.
Technology Innovation Specialist with WTI, Lisa Garcia, shared with us that they can now offer all kinds of information and packages to their customers using drone data. The speed at which data can be gathered, along with the safety aspects when adding a drone solution to the business is a win for everyone.
“We're able to get to jobs faster and get information that we need in order to put quotes together or see defects in roofs,” Lisa said. “We can see all of those things much faster, which is helpful with the labor shortage across the country.”
Through their partnership, Tremco is paving the way for the industry by incorporating drones into their project. Josh Barker, senior executive of business development at Zeitview, has praised the roofing company for educating other companies about the benefits of using drone data as well as educating their company about what the roofing industry needs.
“It took a valued partner like Tremco to help educate us in what is really needed in this space,” Josh said. “They still are very much ahead of the game in terms of innovation and adoption and educating their reps on how to incorporate drones and relaying that to the customer of why it's better and why it's more consistent and more accurate than traditional methods.”
