AI startup Roofer.com, a roofing technology company, announced last week that it has raised a $7.5 million Seed round led by Mucker Capital with participation from several venture capital firms and angel investors.
In a Jan. 30 news release announcing its Seed round take, Roofer.com, headquartered in Dallas, said it plans to use the funding to expand into Austin, Texas. Prior to closing the Seed round, Roofer.com was a participant in an exclusive accelerator reserved for leading startups focused on developing AI products and solutions, HF0.
Roofer.com said the cornerstone of its innovative approach to roofing lies in its use of advanced AI algorithms and drone technology to conduct roof scans. Drones capture high-resolution photographs that are then analyzed using computer vision. The analysis provides insights into areas of damage, the remaining life of the roof, and whether a repair or complete re-roofing is necessary.
Roofer.com said it also differentiates itself from competitors by being “vertically integrated and actually doing the roofing work.” The company acquired Bearded Brothers Roofing & Restoration, a large roofing company in Texas that performed notable projects, including the San Antonio Marriott Riverwalk and thousands of residential homeowners.
Roofer.com said its strategic focus is reroofing residential homes for consumers and rapidly growing its enterprise segment servicing multi-family apartments and commercial buildings.
Multiple seasoned executives from the proptech industry have joined the new AI startup in pursuit of building the next Airbnb. “The team you build is the company you build and we’ve built an incredible team,” said Nathan Mathews, founder and CEO of Roofer.com.
“Our leadership has extensive experience in early to later-stage startups, as well as helping those startups exit successfully for nine figures,” Mathews added. “With the combination of our team, technology, and streamlined processes, I believe Roofer.com is uniquely positioned to deliver the premiere roofing experience everyone will love.”
