  • Our initial research revealed that there no companies focused on offering inspection reporting software, estimating software, CRM, credentials and industry training for roofing companies. We were only able to find companies that specialize in two or three of these categories.
  • Due to time constraints, we were only able to provide the date founded, website, headquarters, and a brief description of the four companies we found.
  • These companies are privately held. As such, their market share is not available, neither can it be estimated. Some of these companies have also not provided their revenue.
  • We found that roofing associations tend to offer professional credentials and industry training.
