Drones are being used for many different purposes nowadays. They can help battle wildfires, geomap hard-to-reach terrain, optimize farming methods and patrol national borders. Professionals also use drones to measure and inspect residential and commercial roofs.
Read on as Universal Roofing & Exteriors discusses the benefits of drone roof inspections.
The number one problem that roofers face is a labor shortage. This is where drones come in handy. Drones can help roofers obtain precise measurements and 3D modeling. They also help with roof damage detection and can make inspections and measurements three times faster than having a roofer manually do it. Drone roof inspections are more efficient, accurate and fast.
Since drones can access difficult-to-reach spaces, they can obtain data that an inspector wouldn’t have access to through traditional methods. Drones can also be used multiple times, documenting the same area repeatedly. IMGING drone platform from Loveland Innovations automatically exports data to common estimating platforms. This saves roofing professionals time and effort in making estimates.
Safer, Ladder-Free Inspections
Roofers have to deal with the risks of complex building designs, working from great heights, as well as damaged roofs and structures, all of which pose risks. One of the major benefits of using drones for roof inspections is gathering data without putting roofers at risk.
Drone roof inspections can help in significantly reducing the cost of inspections. Roofing contractors don’t need to set up scaffolding, lifts, ladders and other climbing equipment.
