Top 10 Best Drones for Roof Inspections – 2017

best drone for roof and home inspections

Home and roof inspections are now a major application for drones. Each year, the energy efficiency of batteries grows, which means the flight time is longer. This now makes drone roof inspections an affordable and useful option.  Home owners and contractors now use drones to inspect the quality of the roof. You can check the quality of the roof after major repairs and refurbishments. Drones can spot any possible damage to the roof after a storm passes through your area. Drones can spot things that are hard to observe in areas of our home, such as steep inclined roofs. You can attach specialist equipment to check whether your home is leaking heat. And you can also check if you are losing precious air conditioned cold air during the summer!
