“Roofing is an industry that prides itself on craftsmanship and precision. We want to ensure that roofing contractors have the most advanced software to measure, estimate and build winning project proposals, helping them to save time, grow their profits, and scale fast,” said Richard Nelson, CEO of Roofr. “As a third-generation Roofer, I understand the pain industry professionals go through on a day-to-day basis running their business. From having to drive out to a home to get measurements in person, to creating pen and paper proposals. I started Roofr to solve these problems and build software for roofers, by roofers.”
“We’re looking forward to helping Roofr continue to grow market share in the roofing contractor industry with this new round of funding,” said Brad Corona, Managing Director of Vertical Venture Partners. “We always look to partner with entrepreneurs who understand their industry vertical deeply, and Roofr is the epitome of that thesis.”
Roofr is a SaaS platform that provides roofing contractors with everything they need to save time, money, and close more business. It was founded in 2016 by Kevin Redman and Richard Nelson. They provide instant estimating tools that quickly qualify leads, aerial images that produce extremely accurate roof measurement reports, and proposal software that allows clients to electronically sign contracts with just a mouse click.
Richard began roofing at the age of twelve. “Wake up, you’re working for the family business,” his uncle said one morning. He spent every summer until he was 24 on a roof.
How the idea germinated
Richard left the family business at the age of 24 to work in sales and project management for a large roofing company. It was at that point that he realised how antiquated and Roofers’ workflows were inefficient. He knew there had to be a better way, from climbing on the roof to get measurements in person to creating subpar, pen and paper proposals that converted horribly. As a result, Richard quit his job, sold his house, and founded Roofr.
