Tidd's Roofing, a high-end roofing contractor from Huntersville, NC, is leveraging drone technology to make roof inspections safer and faster while better equipping homeowners to make informed decisions about their roofs.
Roof inspections are the first line of defense when it comes to maintaining the long-term health and integrity of a home’s roof. Roofing problems may start innocuous and small but if they are not addressed immediately, they can soon balloon to unmanageable proportions. The small leaks or loose shingles can deteriorate further, widening the area that is directly affected. If things go unchecked for a long time or an unfortunate weather event such as a storm or hurricane happens to hit the home, the damage can pass through to the underlayment and expose those living in the house to the elements. This is an especially pertinent problem for North Carolinians as they are subjected to strong winds and torrential rainfall arriving from the Atlantic Ocean.
Inspecting a roof for issues should be a routine task for all homeowners. An expert roofing contractor will look for issues such as poor attic conditions, corrosion, water leaks, staining, missing, buckling, or curled shingles, improper sealing, structural damage, and weather damage. However, it can be a particularly dangerous affair for the homeowner who may have to join the technicians on the roof to get a first-hand view of the extent of the problems. Some homeowners might have a fear of heights or might not be in optimum health to attempt scaling a ladder. Thankfully, technology has come to the rescue and high-end, forward-thinking roofing contractors, such as Tidd’s Roofing, are utilizing it to kill many birds with one stone.
The technology under consideration is drones. Drones can give homeowners an aerial view of their home’s roof, enabling them to direct look at the problems without climbing up to it. Cameras attached to the drones can also take pictures and video that can be later used to collect evidence that will be critical while filing a claim with the homeowner’s insurance. Drones also make the endeavor safer and less time-consuming for a company’s employees enabling them to offer roof inspection rates that are far more affordable than its competitors.
A spokesperson for Tidd’s Roofing talks about the many benefits of its drone technology by saying, “Gone are the days when you had to take the roofing company’s word about the problems affecting your roof. You either had to completely trust the roofer or risk injury by climbing onto the roof yourself to verify their claims. Now with the advancements in drone technology, we have lightweight devices that can be precisely controlled from the ground and can even be set to hover at the exact spot one needs them to be. They also have high-definition cameras that relay a video feed to the operator on the ground giving them full interactive control over its flight path. This was unimaginable just a few years ago. Here at Tidd’s Roofing, we pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge of all technologies, whether it be roofing or drones, that can be used to make roofers’ lives easier and safer. We also offer our clients walk-on inspections if you prefer to do it the old-fashioned way. We recommend that you get your feet on the roof as well as your eyes in the sky. Either way, we can leverage these technologies to give homeowners accurate information about their roofs without them having to get on it with our technicians. So, if you are a homeowner from Huntersville, NC, and surrounding areas including Cornelius Lake Norman, and you suspect that your roof could use a facelift, please contact us to schedule a roofing inspection today.”
