Drone Roof Inspections

Drones have become more popular in many industries because of the convenience and functionality they offer. In the roofing industry, drones present a safer, more efficient and more accurate way to conduct roof inspections than having a roofer manually climb onto the roof.


What Is Covered by a Roofing Inspection?

When you schedule an inspection with a professional roofer, their job is not just to look at the shingles, but to conduct a thorough investigation of any potential problems with your home’s exterior. That inspection will cover the following:

  • Shingles
  • Gutters
  • Decks
  • Eaves
  • Flashing
  • Windows
  • Roof penetrations
  • Doors
  • Siding

Without a comprehensive inspection, you can’t tell what type of roof repair is needed.

What Do Inspectors Look For?

Roofers check a variety of things depending on the situation. Normal aging and weathering have predictable effects on a roofing system, but high winds and a hail storm necessitate a deeper inspection. Here are some of the things your roofer will check for:

  • Missing shingles
  • Shingles that are about to come loose
  • Cracked or torn shingles
  • Granule shedding on shingles
  • Damaged or leaking gutters
  • Mold and mildew
  • Damaged or warped siding
  • Ventilation for soffits and fascia as well as chimneys
  • Water damage to soffits and fascia
  • Water damage to roof
  • Erosion or damage to the foundation

Why Use a Drone?

It’s best to see the bigger picture, literally. Sometimes, it’s difficult to spot damage when you’re too close. A drone roof inspection can make light work of taking pictures and videos from different angles, giving you a clearer and more accurate idea of the roof’s overall state.

A combination of drone inspection and manual inspection allows your roofer to identify problem areas more quickly and easily.
