3 Benefits of Drone Roof Inspections


It’s no secret that technological advancements are occurring faster and faster. If you’re like many people, when you watch TV you may be streaming your shows exclusively through providers such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu - ‘cutting’ the proverbial cord from traditional cable programing. Many people no longer have a home phone, relying exclusively on their mobile phone to communicate.

In fact, many people no longer ‘talk’ on the phone, choosing instead to communicate via text or Facebook messenger within their circle of influence (if you have teenagers you know this first hand!) Cars will run on electric or biofuel power in the not-so-distant future, and virtual reality will become the norm in entertainment experiences.

Just like many aspects of everyday life, the roofing industry has seen it’s own startling advancements in technology that have enhanced value to property owners and managers alike while increasing accuracy for contractors. At the top of the list is the use of drone technology. In this article we’ll discuss how the use of drones has changed the roofing inspection process as well as the value it brings to the table for today’s property owner or manager.

3 Benefits of Drone Roof Inspections

Many properties are designed with areas that are essentially inaccessible with standard inspection equipment. A drone allows roofing contractors and inspectors to work around these inaccessible areas, such as peaks and valleys, to provide a far more accurate look at damage that needs to be addressed.

1. Drone Roof Inspections Provide Additional Detail

Software available for drone technology allows for a more precise diagram of the roof, reducing or even eliminating the need for any kind of ‘speculation’. The software can also assist in creating estimates based on the aerial diagrams created by the drone flight. As a result, property owners and managers can feel more confident in the precision and accuracy of the assessment using this inspection method. Information can be gathered for the otherwise hard to measure areas including peaks, valleys, and ridges and other components such as walls, gutters, and windows can be more accurately assessed as well.

2. 20/20 Roof Vision

Prior to the advent of drone technology, property owners had to piece together a look at the damage or repairs needed through a combination of diagrams and inspection pictures, as provided by their contractor. Drone imagery can provide a holistic view of the roof and allow the property owner to better understand precisely what needs to be addressed. This increase in understanding also increases the property owner’s confidence that they’re getting the best value for their money.


3. Inspect More in Less Time With a Drone

If you’ve ever had to deal with roof replacement at your properties, you know it can be a time-intensive process. Typical roof inspections require contractors to set up a ladder and take tedious measurements when assessing roof conditions. If the contractor is thorough, they often measure twice to ensure the accuracy of their initial work. Utilizing drone technology cuts down dramatically on time and can exponentially increase the accuracy of the measurements and lessen the amount of time property owners and managers need to spend in this phase of the project.
