Drones have gained widespread popularity over numerous years due to their widespread use in various industries. The roofing industry, in particular, gives roofing contractors an easy, safe and convenient way to inspect roofs without having to go up the roof by using a ladder.
Here’s what you can expect from having a drone roof inspection.
What Are Covered By Roofing Inspections?
When you book an inspection session with your local roofers, their responsibility isn’t to solely inspect your shingles, but also take a closer look at the potential problems your home’s exterior can run into during the process. Here are some of the weak points they can inspect:
- Roof penetrations
The reason they’re checking multiple points of your roofing system is because you won’t fully understand your roof’s condition until every nook and cranny is checked. In turn, you can get the full picture as to what is going on inside and outside your roofing system.
What Are the Signs of Damage Roofers?
Your roofer will check different things depending on the situation. Your roof can show signs of wear and tear over the years, but the signs of damage caused by the elements, such as water and wind damage, are different. Here are some of the things your roofer will look for during the inspection:
- Missing shingles
- Loose shingles
- Damaged/leaking gutters
- Mold and mildew growth
- Damaged siding
- Lack of ventilation on the soffit
- Water damage on soffits and fascia
- Foundation damage
- Water Roofing damage
How Do Drones Help?
Granted, getting up the roof first-hand can give you a closer look at your roofing system. But sometimes, the risk is too high, especially during the winter months. This is where drones come handy. Before roofers get up on your roof, they can conduct a preliminary inspection by sending a drone up your roofing system to document roofing issues that couldn’t be normally done by visually checking it. Combining visual and drone inspections allows your roofer to check for issues accurately and quickly.
