SPECwise Inc. is offering its estimating services to contractors over the Internet.

By going to this website, contractors and suppliers can have a complete roof takeoff performed, including panel length and layout, for metal roofing and trim.

 A finished report is usually available within 24 hours, officials said.

"We developed this service because contractors are continually telling us that they need to cut costs and are expected to become more and more efficient," said Joe Lilly, one of the principals at SPECwise "By helping contractors take the time and guesswork out of estimating, they now are able to focus on what they do best; installing the roof."
