    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.

Drone Roof Inspections

Drones have become more popular in many industries because of the convenience and functionality they offer. In the roofing industry, drones present a safer, more efficient and more accurate way to conduct roof inspections than having a roofer manually climb onto the roof.

What Is Covered by a Roofing Inspection?

When you schedule an inspection with a professional roofer, their job is not just to look at the shingles, but to conduct a thorough investigation of any potential problems with your home’s exterior. That inspection will cover the following:

  • Shingles
  • Gutters
  • Decks
  • Eaves
  • Flashing
  • Windows
  • Roof penetrations
  • Doors
  • Siding

Without a comprehensive inspection, you can’t tell what type of roof repair is needed.

What Do Inspectors Look For?

Roofers check a variety of things depending on the situation. Normal aging and weathering have predictable effects on a roofing system, but high winds and a hail storm necessitate a deeper inspection. Here are some of the things your roofer will check for:

  • Missing shingles
  • Shingles that are about to come loose
  • Cracked or torn shingles
  • Granule shedding on shingles
  • Damaged or leaking gutters
  • Mold and mildew
  • Damaged or warped siding
  • Ventilation for soffits and fascia as well as chimneys
  • Water damage to soffits and fascia
  • Water damage to roof
  • Erosion or damage to the foundation

Why Use a Drone?

It’s best to see the bigger picture, literally. Sometimes, it’s difficult to spot damage when you’re too close. A drone roof inspection can make light work of taking pictures and videos from different angles, giving you a clearer and more accurate idea of the roof’s overall state.

A combination of drone inspection and manual inspection allows your roofer to identify problem areas more quickly and easily.
