The Home Depot is expanding its partnership with Hover and offering the building dimensions app to its pro customers at a discounted rate through its Pro Xtra contractor loyalty program

Hover allows users to obtain measurements and 3D models of home exteriors. With a smartphone, builders and remodelers can take a few pictures and within hours receive measurements for siding, roofing, windows and doors. 

The interactive 3D model delivered is also customizable, allowing users to see exactly what a home would look like with different colors and products for a remodeling project.   

Contractors who sign up for Hover through Pro Xtra receive a 25% discount on the service.

According to The Home Depot, Hover users see an increase in both the size of the jobs sold and close rates. The retailer says that by using Hover, pros are saving roughly two hours of time estimating a job, translating into additional leads and up to a 15% increase in close rates. 

Based in San Francisco, Hover completed another round of investment funding this past April bringing its total to $87 million. Major investors in the company have included The Home Depot and GV, formerly Google Ventures and a subsidiary of Google parent company Alphabet Inc.

Last year, building products manufacturer CertainTeed announced a partnership with Hover
