Roof inspections have actual required monitoring inspection at the ground level or else from a ladder or from physically walking the roof. These inspection is not only involve process angles but also spacious and even unreachable areas.
The amount of time required for these antiquated methods is costly, not to mention the liability risks. Because of these time requirements and physical restrictions, observing every inch of roofs is extremely unlikely, and the quality of these inspections is highly limited.
However, when utilizing a drone roof survey to capture high quality photos and videos, not only of the roof, but of the entire structure and property, these inspections can be performed within just a few hours. This allows us to observe the results of the inspection from the ground and prepare a detailed analysis of the data in less time and with virtually no risk of injury.
One more amazing advantage of drone survey technology is the use of thermo graphic imaginary which is used to identify the water infiltration in both roofs and facades. Drone pilot has fully equipped with a thermal camera allows us to detect otherwise imperceptible areas of water damage which is a culprit of leaks, mold and root anything.
Formerly, the primary method for identify water damage required costly and inefficient time to “guess and check” methods, sometimes requiring the removal of the building’s exterior in order to get a precision assessment. Utilizing drone roof survey thermal technology, we can determine exactly which areas of a roof contain water with a quick fly over.
Advanced drones can also fly extremely close to building structures, making the inspection of roofs with complex designs and hard to reach areas such as skylights much more efficient and accurate.
