Why Drones Are Valuable for Home Inspections After Storms

The use of drones for home inspections has been on the rise because they provide a way to inspect the roofs that would otherwise be inaccessible. Oftentimes, a roof is inaccessible when it is too high, too steep, or too wet to safely access.

Especially after a storm, it’s important to have your roof inspected with the latest drone technology, which provides a rich set of data to generate real-time insights. Jonas Independent Contracting uses drones to quickly and accurately inspect, measure and design roofs – all from the ground. They can use drone technology to locate and identify damages to roofs, providing the most accurate data to ensure efficiency.

Recent advancements in computer vision and machine learning help eliminate error and deliver automated roof measurements with up to 99% accuracy. All of this is done up to 3x faster than traditional methods, saving time and resources in the field. This also minimizes the potential for measurement error, and make it possible to measure square footage, roof features, pitch, surface area, and slope consistently.

Getting a full picture of structural issues that might occur due to storm damage is an important part of processing insurance claims. Drones allow JIC to gather on-demand information in a fraction of time compared to traditional methods – so we can work quickly to identify issues, fast-track claims, and help clients make repairs. With a high-resolution drone map in hand, locating damage – such as broken shingles, punctures, and penetration, leaks, and cracks – is much more efficient.

When a building sustains damage during a storm or natural disaster, gathering timely, accurate information is crucial. Sometimes a site may not be accessible after a disaster. Even if it is, this process can take months with manual inspection. Drones help make the inspection process faster, safer, and more manageable.

Drones are more efficient than ground inspections — they give you a far greater set of data, which can be leveraged throughout the claims process.
