About this course:
Offering a roof estimate to a customer begins by going to the site and completing an onsite takeoff of the roof system. This site visit includes measuring the roof system as well as taking photos and interviewing the building tenant. These steps are required to complete an accurate estimate and a profitable project for your company. While you are there, you need to be able to take photos that will allow you, another estimator or a project manager to be able to review the project. As they say, a picture tells a thousand words - especially in roofing! Your Instructor, Mike Shultz, will teach you how to properly take photos of the roofing site. This includes images of the roof from roof top as well as images of the staging and setup area. These images are then used to provide an overview of the project as well as convey specific details that were found during the site visit.
Mike is lead estimator at Jurin Roofing Services, and is responsible for training other estimators and salesman. His skills include drawing roof CADs, detailed commercial roof estimating, and team management.
