Roofing Technology Think Tank (RT3), an emerging group of roofing industry thought leaders, launched a new informational website at The group is focused on disseminating technology information, research and updates obtained through RT3 meetings. The website will be the platform to share these findings and information.

RT3 is focused on serving the needs of the roofing industry with ongoing education, research and dissemination of their findings. “The Roofing Technology Think Tank (RT3) is a consortium of thought leaders exploring emerging technology solutions for the roofing industry, striving to inform roofing contractors by bringing together progressive and disruptive solutions that help build the professionalism and appeal of the roofing industry,” is the mission statement recently created by the group.

The first meeting held in Chicago, IL in June of 2017 is highlighted on the new website along with news and contact information. Future meetings, both virtual and in person will be shared on the site along with information gathered through RT3 task teams, Tech Talks and guest speakers. Robotics on the roof, virtual reality and 3D printing are all topics of interest for the next in person meeting being held in October at Georgia Tech, Atlanta, GA hosted by Pointivo and The Estimating Edge.

“We are focused on research, understanding and dissemination of technology that can help the roofing industry with labor issues and professional branding,” stated Dale Tyler, president of National Roofing Partners (NRP). “If we want to compete for talent as an industry, we will need to create an appealing workplace. With our dwindling workforce, we need to be on the front end of innovative technologies that will automate the rooftop. Labor is just one of the urgent business problems that can be addressed with technology.”

Ellsworth, of and HJE Consulting. “We want to share what we learn and a website is the best way to share with the industry.
