Roofr, a San Francisco, CA-based roofing service that uses aerial imagery to provide customers with a free estimate online, raised $4m in seed funding.
The round was led by Crosslink Capital, with participation from Y Combinator, Ace & Company, Louis Beryl and other angel investors. In conjunction with the funding, Omar El-Ayat, Partner at Crosslink Capital, joined Roofr’s Board of Directors.
The company plans to use the funding to expand its reach to new marketplaces, including Texas, and to grow its engineering, sales and marketing teams.
Led by Richard Nelson, Founder and CEO, Roofr uses aerial / satellite imagery to measure customer roofs and provide an instant, free roofing estimate. It then connects customers with a Vetted Roofing Contractor to do an in-person inspection, provide a final proposal and complete the work.
The company provides a dedicated project consultant from beginning to end. In addition to connecting roofing contractors with customers, Roofr’s long term goal is to provide roofers with a host of free tools to streamline operations and boost profit. The company also plans to launch a free satellite measurement application for roofing contractors to accurately measure and estimate roofs directly from their desk.
Roofr currently serves the the Bay Area, the entire state of Florida, and Ontario, Canada.
The funding follows the graduation from the Y Combinator Summer of 2017 Class.
