PROPERTY MANAGERS NEED TO KNOW HOW THEIR ROOFS ARE PERFORMINGDrone Infrared Imaging
When do people usually take care of their roofs… when they leak! There is another alternative. Taking care of roof begins with a good inspection to access to see if there is any damage. Buildings that are over two stories tend to get neglected the most. Every storm has the potential to blow off one shingle, chimney cap, ridge cap or exhaust vent. Would you want to know if these are missing and schedule to fix them before it leaked into the plywood, then onto the insulation and finally through the drywall. I believe the answer would be… YES.
PROPERTY MANAGER INSIGHT
Commercial flat roofs can experience the same kinds of damage. Actually flat roofs are more susceptible to larger roof blow offs that are shingle roofs. Inspections are a good way to know for sure that your roof is safe and secure. At Drone Infrared Imaging, we can put a drone in air and quickly assess damages. Property managers especially need to be in the know. Dealing with complains all day is exhausting for property managers. Wouldn’t it be great to know your roof is safe and secure thus eliminating that headache.
We recommend have properties inspected at least 2-4 times a year with possible drone inspection right after a severe storm. The drone can take pictures of every aspect of the building, not just the roof. Drones have the ability to capture pictures like a 3-D. So the perspective is different from a straight up google earth picture (although they are starting to use some 3-D). To be able to see if there is soffit or fascia torn off or gutters missing or plugged can save money in the long run. How can it save you money? By being able to fix the issues before it causes inside damage. Inside damage is costly to fix, so anytime this can be avoided, it will be beneficial for all involved.
