Home inspectors and roofing contractors face a high risk of falling each time they go onto a roof, and as falls continue to be the number one cause of death for roofers, there is a great sense of precaution for those in these lines of work. As home inspectors, going up onto the roof is arguably the most hazardous part of the job.
One way for inspectors to lower fall risks is to implement drone technology into the home inspection process. From steep pitched or damaged roofs to ladder risks, there are various elements of each roof that make it unique from other jobs, and inspectors can never truly know what to expect from a roof until they are on it. However, this mystery can be easily solved with the use of drones, providing the inspector with an up-close and accurate view of roofs from various angles that would otherwise be risky and more time-consuming.
Companies like EagleView are providing professionals in the home inspection industry with the highest quality roof imagery and equipment that can revolutionize the way they do roof inspections. With their drone solution, EagleView Access™, inspectors can capture ultra-accurate images and measurements to create a precise digital reproduction of the roof, allowing users to easily identify and measure any damaged areas of the roof.
This drone technology is incredibly easy to navigate, and gets users results fast without the risk of falling or personal injury. While there still may be times where an inspector may need to go up on the roof, with drone technology, they can minimize the area of the roof they must walk and pinpoint the exact areas needing an assessment, lowering risks.
