Your home’s roofing system is an important part of your home as it not only improves your home’s aesthetic appeal, but also protects your home from the elements as well. It’s for this reason that you need to ensure your roof is properly maintained as much as possible. One way you can maintain your roof is by having a professional inspect it, and, nowadays, roofers can give homeowners the option of a drone roofing inspection.
Here’s how drone roofing inspections work.
Manual Drone Inspection
You can choose between two kinds of drone inspections: manual and automatic. With a manual drone inspection, your contractor will fly the drone around to gather images of your roof. While it may sound awfully convenient, there’s actually a downside to this as they’ll have to sift through the numerous images the drone took afterwards to determine the damage to your roof.
Automatic Drone Inspection
On the other hand, you can also opt for an automatic drone inspection of your roof. To do this, the roofer types the job address into an app before typing out the perimeter of the roof to create a flight plan. Afterwards, a camera will be attached to the device.
After a quick, preflight checklist, your roofer will launch the drone, and it’ll automatically map out the roof, collecting dozens of ultra-high resolution images in the process. Once it’s done, it’ll return to the contractor as it transfers the imagery to the device where its app is installed. With the images in hand, your roofer can quickly create a bid.
