The Modern Estimate
THE MODERN ESTIMATE
A NEW WAY TO SHOP FOR ROOFING & SIDING.
The most common complaint when we spoke with homeowners shopping for roofing or siding is that the process was tedious and annoying. Most contractors ask for all homeowners to be present, appointments take hours, homeowners miss work and the entire process seems….outdated.
THE MODERN ESTIMATE
Download the app, take a few snaps, and get the most accurate estimate possible. Plus, your model is yours to keep.
Welcome to the future of home improvement. With the Modern Estimate we create a full 3D model of your home that allows us to estimate your project using precise measurements from photos you upload yourself. We create our most accurate estimate based on the products you select and offer our absolute lowest price. Decide not to hire us? No worries, the 3D model is yours to keep and can be used to accurately estimate future projects such as gutters, roofing, siding and windows.
THE MODERN ESTIMATE IS FREE FOR MODERN CUSTOMERS
Snap Some Pics
If you can hold a phone, we can measure your home. We ask you to take a minimum of 8 photos capturing every angle of the home using the guided process in the app.
Create Your Model
Once your photos are uploaded, we transform them into a fully measured and customizable 3D model. We notify you in app or by email when your model is ready. The model is yours to keep forever.
Design and Measure
Once your model is completed, a member of our field team double checks your measurements in person. We also check for any issues that may affect the cost. You do not have to be home for this.
After the measure is verified, we walk you through product selection. This can be online or in person, it's up to you! Once you're done, we create your estimate with our absolute lowest price.
BOOK YOUR MODERN ESTIMATE
Booking a Modern Estimate is simple, using our online booking system choose the day and time that works best for you for one of our Modern Pros to give you a call to walk your through the photo process. This should take between 5-15 minutes depending on your comfort level with using apps and the questions you have about our services. If you have questions before booking, feel free to give us a call we love to help. The Modern Estimate is a flat $99 fee which is credited back to you if you decide to move forward with the project.
SNAP YOUR PHOTOS
If you can take a selfie, you can measure your home. The photo upload process is made easy through guided steps that show you how to take the photos of your home and which angles produce the best results. Of course, our team is here to help along the way if you have questions. Once you upload your photos, we should have your 3D model completed within 1-2 business days. Your model is yours to keep forever even if you don’t proceed with the project.
CHOOSE YOUR MATERIALS
After your model is completed, our field technicians will email you to let you know when we’ll visit your home to verify the measurements. During this visit we check shingle layers, inspect for issues that may affect the price of your estimate and drop off product information or samples if requested. With your 3D model, you’ll also receive an email with links to view our entire product line online from the comfort of your home. If you’d like to review your options in person, great! We can do that too.
Once you chose your products, we send you an updated render of your model showing you the colors and materials you chose. You can also do this yourself using our app and on your phone or iPad making as many changes and versions as you’d like. Get creative! We want you to love your new home exterior. Your estimate is built on the materials you choose during this step. If you’d be more comfortable with one of team members guiding you through this process in person, we’re happy to help. In person estimates are always available, but you have options.
YOUR MODERN ESTIMATE
The Modern Estimate process allows us to give you the most accurate and detailed estimate possible. Our software links directly with product manufacturers to give us the most accurate up to date pricing. What does this mean for you? This means that you can trust that your estimate is the price that you’ll pay. Many competitors low ball estimates and then jack up the price on the job site using flimsy excuses for why they didn’t estimate your project properly. Once you approve your estimate, we’ll credit you the cost of your Modern Estimate and get to work. Decide to go with another company? No worries, keep your model for future projects and inspiration.
WHY WOULD I PAY FOR AN ESTIMATE?
THE TRUTH IS, YOU ALREADY ARE.
The truth is that no estimate is free, the cost of estimating a project for a homeowner is between $100-$200 for each home improvement company. Most companies run dozens of leads a week. And those costs add up. Most contractors buy their materials from the same place. They pay their installers a standard price. So why are the estimates you receive so different? The cost of the company’s overhead is built into your estimate.
The Modern Estimate isn’t just an estimate, it’s a whole home 3D model that you can keep and customize as many times as you’d like. Shopping for multiple prices? Great! Send your model to our competition and have them provide you an estimate as well. Your model can be used to accurately estimate new gutters, roofing, siding, misc exterior repairs and windows too. It even measures the trim around your windows!
How is Modern XTERIOR different?
WE PUT QUALITY OVER EVERYTHING.
We don’t pass our overhead to our customers. Our goal is to keep our overhead as low as possible to give you the best value. When we discovered this technology immediately we realized the opportunity to offer even greater value to homeowners. With the Modern Estimate we’re able to give you our absolute lowest price with the least hassle allowing you to shop for your project from the comfort of your home. Our homeowners often tell us how refreshing it is to work with a company that doesn’t make them feel pressured and bamboozled. That’s the kind of feedback we love to hear. At Modern, we prefer to let the work speak for us.
Is your repair part of an insurance claim? Great! We can share your model with your insurance company as well speeding up your claim process and helping you get reimbursed properly.
