Roof Inspection

If your roof has been damaged you’ll obviously want to claim on your home insurance as quickly as possible. To assess the damage, your insurance company will need to carry out a roof inspection to determine exactly what’s happened and how much it will cost to fix – so they can offer you a settlement.

Insurance companies typically use their own roofing contractor and they would carry out the inspection. The trouble is, you only have their word to go on, unless you’re a roofer yourself and you have a trained eye. For many of us, getting on the roof is difficult or even impossible, not to mention dangerous.

Roof Inspections Made Easy

With a drone equipped with high resolution 360 degree view camera though, you can get a look at the roof yourself. You could even hire your own contractor to be present during the drone flight, so they can instruct the pilot where to fly, to get a proper assessment without going on the roof. This is ideal for situations where the roof is inaccessible or in a bad state of repair.

It’s always good to get a second opinion and drone roof inspections allow you to do that. Having your own idea about claim settlements is always a good idea before accepting the first offer your insurance company throws at you.

Why Use a Drone Roof Inspection?

A roof is one of the largest and most important features of a property, yet it is often taken for granted and essentially, left to its own devices for years unless it becomes apparent that there’s a problem. The main reason for this is that roofs are often difficult and dangerous to access, so unless there’s a leak or some other obvious issue you would have no reason to inspect your roof at all. Even when there is a reason to inspect your roof, it’s not usually an easy task and in many cases requires a professional which is costly and let’s face it, inconvenient. How Drones Make Inspecting Roofs Easy Drones, however, make inspecting a roof easy. There’s no need to step foot on the roof yourself, so it’s safe – and the condition or material of your roof won’t affect how easy it is to inspect. In the event of damage to your roof, a drone inspection will allow you to see exactly what’s happened and make claiming on your insurance much less hassle. The same goes for getting any roofing work done: the contractor will be able to get a good close-up look and everything they need […]
