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.
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.
