Roof inspections are a normal part of keeping your home in good shape. While the concept remains unchanged, developments in technology have opened the door for new ways to get the same task done. One of these developments is drone-assisted roofing inspections, which has been adapted by home improvement contractors.
A Better View
The most noticeable advantage of drone-assisted roofing inspections is the superior view it provides. With a drone, you can get a full view of your roof from above. This lets you see problems in areas that are difficult to access with a stepladder, or something that can’t be spotted from ground level.
Regular roof inspections not only limit the view of the roof, but also take time to set up. Roof and new gutter installation experts only have to power up a drone and have it fly around the roofing system to perform the same inspection at a fraction of the time.
Safer Than Usual
Because drone inspections do not require people to physically be on the roof, inspections are a lot safer for both inspectors and the roofing system itself. There is zero risk of people accidentally stepping on and breaking a few shingles. More importantly, people don’t have to risk slipping and getting injured from nasty falls during inspection.
Professional Eyes Required
While drone inspection makes it easier to spot roof problems, we still recommend buying your own drone and taking the DIY approach. Experts in residential roofing services still have a better grasp of what signs to spot when taking a look at the roof.
