Drone Roofing Inspections: How Do They Work?

Thanks to the recent advancements in technology, roofing inspections are becoming easier and more convenient. With modern technology, businesses can be done much faster and everyone can do their jobs more efficiently nowadays. The roofing industry is no exception to this; in fact, they too have embraced whatever today’s technology has to offer in the form of drone roofing inspections. But how exactly do these inspections work?

In this article, the drone inspection and roof repair professionals of Sully-Jones Roofing discuss how drone roofing inspections work.

Drone Roofing Inspections:

Manual Inspections

Manual drone inspections are when a roofer buys a drone and flies it manually to inspect the property’s roofing system. By doing this, your roofing expert can gather images faster and safer from the ground level, reducing the risk of injuries. However, if you’re opting for a manual inspection, taking photos of the roof is pretty much all the drone can do as you’ll still have to sift through the images and come up with an appropriate estimate on your own.

Automated Inspections

Alternatively, you can also opt for automated drone inspections, which makes the roof inspection process much simpler even compared to manual inspections. If you opt for an automated inspection, the roofer will type the job address into an app and then they’ll create a flight plan for the drone. Once they’re at your property, your residential roof replacement contractor will launch the drone and after a quick pre-flight checklist, it’ll map the roof and collect dozens of ultra-high resolution images.

After the drone has collected the images for you and your contractor, it’ll automatically return to your roofer and transfer the images it has collected to the mobile device its app is installed in. This makes it easier for your contractor to determine what kind of damage your roof sustained and how much it’ll cost to fix it.
