The EDGE® is the roofing software solution that is making it easy to stay at the cutting edge and ahead of your competition. 

When it comes to software for contractors, you need something designed by experienced roofing professionals for roofing professionals. What you need is software that gives you an edge on the competition. You want the EDGE®. 

The EDGE offers roofers an all-in-one roofing takeoff and cost-estimating software solution. Not only is The EDGE completely customized to your trade, but it’s also customized to your business so that your takeoff sources the exact materials and manufacturers that your business utilizes.  

While robust and powerful, the EDGE is intuitive and easy enough to learn that your contractors and estimators will be up and running in a week or less. 

In addition to being remarkably intuitive, the EDGE includes extensive databases of roofing-specific systems from manufacturers such as Elevate, Johns Manville, TAMKO, Versico, SOPREMA, GAF, Carlisle, Duro-Last and many more. 

Plus, the EDGE comes loaded with roofing-specific conditions allowing you to select a roofing system, choose the parts list, and automatically calculate measurements and all material costs while you perform a takeoff. You can use the EDGE to quickly and accurately track every item. 

With the EDGE you can: 

  • Access the most efficient takeoff to cost-estimating software solution in the industry. 

  • Have the ability to measure tapered insulation and standing seam metal roofing. 

  • Create calculations for fastener lengths. 

  • Customize pricing for local trade rates for accurate roofing bids. 

  • Complete complex calculations for materials and labor costs in real time. 

The EDGE is dedicated to streamlining and innovating your processes to provide contractors exactly what they need to boost efficiency. While completely customized to your trade, the EDGE is intelligent enough to use the same language, manufacturers and measurements that you use in your business. You can automatically update an entire project with a click of the mouse. 

With the EDGE you gain access to key analytics and reporting that gives you the tools you need to make more informed decisions. These tools include a Stocking Report, so you can quickly determine your material needs, a Pricing Report that allows you to shop around for the best prices from suppliers or a Recap Report Project that provides an overview summarizing all costs. 

Plus, you can expect the industry’s absolute best customer service from sales, support and training staff to support you as if they were a member of your team. While the EDGE estimating software is intuitive, they still offer hands-on training and awesome tech support to ensure your business is able to get the most out of it. 

When it comes to the success of your company, you deserve to give yourself that winning EDGE. Use the industry’s leading takeoff and estimating software.
