Drone-based visual roof inspections are safer, faster and cheaper!

Drone technology services are becoming increasingly popular as a tool used to perform aerial visual roof inspections.

Drones can fly extremely close to structures, making the visual inspection of roofs with complicated designs and hard to reach areas much more efficient and accurate.

Popular reasons for a done roof inspection

  • Real Estate Appraisals

  • Roof Repair Estimation

  • Insurance Adjuster Claim

  • Solar Panel Installation and Maintenance

  • Regular Home Maintenance

HOW DRONE TECHNOLOGY HAS CHANGED THE WAY WE INSPECT ROOFS


Now drones can visually inspect high places a human never couldn't, or would have to risk injury.  Previously it would take a roofing team and expensive equipment to guarantee the safety of a human worker on the roof but and even then reaching high peaks is a dangerous job.  Thankfully, with the invention of drones both the danger to human life and the cost of roofing inspections or documentation has been greatly reduced. Drone eliminate the ladder entirely.  Unmanned aircraft systems work remotely and do not require the physical presence of a human worker on the rooftop. 

Unmanned aircraft eliminate the ladder entirely. Drones can now provide a safe and effective method to gather high definition images and video of roofs and other areas where damages can occur. Carolina Airshots aerial roof inspection is designed to increase safety, improve efficiency, reduce time and labor costs. You will also achieve a much better view of any potential repair job than you would from a single trip by a human with a camera. Modern HD video and image technology allows you to pinpoint specific areas with far greater accuracy than ever before.

With 4K video and high-resoution photos, drones are able to provide an up-close look at the current building or side panel condition. Optical sensors in the drone allow it to operate at a safe distance from the side of the building as well.

WHY USE DRONES FOR ROOF INSPECTIONS?

If you’re a homeowner, pulling the ladder out of the garage may seem like the easiest way to go about inspecting the roof of your home—but, it isn’t. It's dangerous! Not to mention a human on a roof just can't safely inspect all aspects of the roof especially on high peaks. Drones or UAVs are absolutely better for performing roof inspections. Modern technology now allow a faster, easier and more efficient way to inspect all the areas of a roof that are just plain dangerous to inspect by physically putting a human at risk. Not to mention a drone will capture still images and moving photos of all areas of your roo at all the reasons why.

REDUCE SAFETY RISKS

The fact that drones enable an individual to perform a roof inspection while remaining safely on the ground may be the single greatest advantage of their use. More than 300 people die each year in the United States falling from ladders, and over 150k ladder-related injuries are treated in the emergency room. The use of drones all but eliminates this risk entirely

Industry studies show utilizing UAVs for inspecting a roof can cut the inspection time down [on average] from three hours to one. For a roofing estimator or an insurance adjuster, this can prove invaluable allowing them to inspect far more properties in a single day with a higher degree of accuracy.

ACCESSIBILITY

It goes without saying that there are some buildings and homes with roofs that are either inaccessible or simply too daunting to just pull out the ladder. A drone-based roof inspection performed by a skilled pilot can yield images a person would never be able to access. Can you really picture yourself atop that fourth-story gable with a tape measure and a camera, holding onto a ladder; or dangling under an overhang?

COST SAVING

Compared to a team of people with ropes and tape measures, generally a single individual is required to inspect a roof. For larger commercial properties a drone pilot may bring along additional VOs (visual observers) to aid in maintaining LOS (line of sight) during the data collection process. Even in this instance, a two-man crew would be completely done before a traditional team even accessed the roof.

CLOUD-BASED 3D MODELING

Aside from the enhanced safety and data collection benefits already mentioned, using drones to inspect roofs allows you to fly what is called a “Drone Mapping Mission” using flight automation software. The images captured during these types of flights can be imported into inspection software to render high-resolution 3D models that can be accessed via the cloud making valuable data available in seconds, and provide far more detailed roof reports than some notes on a piece of paper and a crude drawing.
