How Drones are Changing the Roofing Industry

Since being introduced into the roofing industry, drones have greatly changed the way the roofing industry works, and for the better. There are countless benefits of using drones in the roofing industry. Those benefits include, but are not limited to the fact that

  • Drones are a much faster way to inspect the roof than a manual inspection.For a manual inspection, a roofer must climb your roof and search for damage, chalking out and circling any damage they can find. As you can imagine, that process is very time consuming. Drones however, are able to inspect the roof within minutes. This is a huge advantage due to the fact that it is less time consuming and the homeowner is able to receive the results sooner.
  • Another benefit of drones is that it allows a smaller window of opportunity for your roof to be damaged further. Walking on a homeowners roof could potentially cause damage to the shingles and roof material. However, a drone inspects your roof with virtually no risk to your home. 
  • Drones also allow opinion and bias to be taken out of the roof process. A contractor cannot overplay damage on the roof due to the evidence given by the drone, and an insurance adjuster cannot downplay the damage on a roof in order to avoid paying for a clients roof. 
  • Drones also can work as a preventative measure to avoid more damage. Many homeowners are completely unaware of damage on their roof and do not notice until a leak occurs or the roof starts to cave in. With drones however, a homeowner can be more informed about their roof, the damage on it, and the risks that come with the damage.
