If you’ve ever had to get repairs or any kind of replacement done on your roof, you know just how stressful it can be. From the noises to the new people in and out of your home trying to get the repairs done safely, it can be quite the experience. One area of nerve wracking stress is when your roofing contractors go up into the roof and begin to work on your roof. Luckily, many professional contractors are able to utilize a much safer and cost effective method of surveying and repairing your roofing with drone inspections. Here are just a few of the benefits of having your roofing contractors use drone inspection tools:
1) Reduces Risk of Injury
When inspecting a roof, it is traditionally required to physically get up there and evaluate areas of instability and damage. This is usually one of the more dangerous pets of the job since the entirety of the problem hasn’t been established yet and you could very well find areas of more damage without realizing it. The safety measures taken here can also benefit the inspection as the drones are able to look into areas where your contractors may not be able to reach.By utilizing the drones for inspections, the risk of someone falling off or down through your roof is greatly reduced and can inadvertently prevent further damage during the inspection.
2) Saves Money and Reduces Working Time
Now, everyone wants to save money, especially on big necessities like roofing repairs. That being said, drone inspection can actually save you money in the long run. Actually, it saves your contractor time and money which in turn helps you to take advantage of the cost effectiveness they can bring to you. Because the risk of injury is greatly reduced when using drones to inspect your roof, contractors can write off the usual money fillers such as scaffolding, climbing equipment (ladders, aerial lifts, etc.), and any other climbing tools, to give you the best pricing based on the repairs themselves as opposed to the time and actions in between.
3) Multitasking Roof Repairs
Usually, when the roofing contractors are inspecting your roof, they must fully complete the job and then move onto the next rooftop in need. With drone inspections, time is not of the essence as the drones are able to complete multiple inspections on different rooftops in a much shorter amount of time. This leads to more efficiency in repairs and customer satisfaction as well as time and money reduced and well spent.
4) Real Time Photos
Drones are able to see close up and broader scopes of your roofing situation. They can record the area to help your contractors best decide what is needed and give you a screenshot of the before and after process. It is the best way to get the most accurate transformation shots due to the drone having GPS coordination for specific aerial shots of the exact position as the previous shot. The drones also give you impossibly high, low, and wide range of photo proof that you otherwise would not be able to take while physically inspecting the roofing situation.
5) Less Opportunities for Interruption
Drones allow you to keep an overseeing eye during the inspection and repairing process. This allows for better and more efficient work to be done the first time around. Traditionally, workers would get interrupted during their work to evaluate an area for more repairs or to readjust a certain tool like ladders and equipment, but with the drones, you don’t need as many ladders or climbing tools which keeps your client’s yard and home looking clear of as much foot traffic and tools as possible.
