How accurate are RoofSnap's measurements?
When draw-it-yourself (DIY) measurement diagrams are drawn correctly, RoofSnap’s measurements are within a 1%-3% margin of error of the actual roof measurements, which is the industry standard margin of error for measurements taken from aerial imagery.

If you place a roof measurement order, your measurement diagram is completed by our Sketch Techs who are expertly trained. Every measurement order is subjected to a quality review process to ensure accuracy.
Where does RoofSnap's imagery come from?

RoofSnap has multiple imagery partners included in the platform. Some are used for project location and mapping purposes. Others are used for measurements. If you have access to imagery from other sources, you can import it for use in your RoofSnap projects.
