Drone Roof Inspections or Damage Assessments


Roof inspections and damage assessments are performed with drones.


Roof inspections capture HDR-quality images of your roof prior to storm damage or damage caused by natural disasters.

Without a before view showing the condition of your roof, your insurance claim will be at increased risk of being denied after a storm. Additionally, missing roof tiles can decrease the value of your property due to an increased risk of rain or storm damage.

Getting a quick drone inspection is a great way to understand your roof’s condition before you call a roofer to generate a detailed quote.

Time required

The drone pilot will be on site for approximately 30 minutes. This ensures the drone pilot is able to capture multiple videos and still photo shots of the house or building. Should the drone pilot have to return to the location, there will be no additional cost for this rework to the client (although extremely rare).

Pilot credentials

The pilot is a Part 107 Remote Drone pilot that is commercially licensed to fly drones. The pilot has been an FAA commercially licensed drone operator since 2016—the first year FAA began drone certification for commercial operators.

In addition to flying drones, the pilot is also FAA rated to fly aircraft and holds the following active certifications.

  • Commercial Single Engine Land
  • Commercial Multi-Engine Land
  • Commercial Single Single Sea
  • Commercial Glider
  • High-performance
  • Tailwheel
  • Instrument


The pilot will be responsible for validating that the airspace is legal to fly in. If that is not the case, the pilot will file the necessary FAA paperwork to ensure a legal and safe drone mission
