Drone Inspections are More Thorough
Your home’s exterior has many nooks and crannies, and without a drone, it’s possible to miss some of the finer details. With a drone, an inspector can observe all of those difficult-to-access places. Most drones can record footage, making it easier to reference points of concern. This allows homeowners to better understand the inspector’s findings. Without a drone, some areas of the roof may be so hard-to-reach and dangerous that they can’t be safely accessed and inspected.
Drones in Home Inspections are More Efficient
Even on a relatively safe roof, an inspector has to be cautious and careful. Rushing this process may cause injury or an incomplete inspection. A drone flies through the air, so it can cover a broader area more quickly than a person with a ladder, and it is not slowed down by a steep or dangerous slope.
An Overview of the Property
A drone comes in handy for inspecting more than just the roof. For larger properties, it is a bonus to receive an overview of the entire property. This way, you can see the condition of out-buildings from above, notable landscape features, and the placement of trees, and shrubs, and neighbors. A drone can take aerial images and videos of the whole property which can be included in the inspection report. If you are purchasing a rural property that spans many acres, you should hire an inspector who uses a drone.
