Quickly Assess Common Roof Defects in Minutes using Drones
Drone roof inspections are safe and quick but it’s NOT about the drone. It’ about assessing the condition and making sure your roof is healthy, drones just make it easy and quick to complete an inspection.
Why would you conduct a drone roof inspection? To save money of course. It will pay dividends to inspect and fix minor issues before they become major issues. Yes, in many cases insurance will cover the expense BUT your insurance costs year over year may increase, insurance companies are not in business to lose money.
Common defects that can be easily and quickly found during a residential drone roof inspection are physical damage and holes to roof structures from tree branches, splitting and curling or lifting shingles, surface loss on asphalt shingles, hail damage, missing flashing kick-outs, damaged or missing chimney crickets, missing or damaged gutter aprons, vent flashing failure, and more.
The reason that it’s important to inspect and correct roof issues is that damaged roofs allow water to infiltrate and this can create mould and rot the wooden structures of your house. Typically, if water gets in your house where it was not designed to be, this can cause mould-related health issues, and not to mention this will devalue your property.
Water also commonly runs to openings in the vapor barrier, such as at ceiling light fixtures, which can present a fire hazard.
Importantly it’s not just your roof and substructure that can become damaged, clogged gutters on your roof can create water pooling along your foundation that in major rainfall events can very quickly cause 10’s of thousands in damages that may not be covered by insurance.
