Do you know what kind of shape your roof is in?

Your roof is one of the most expensive elements of your home to repair or replace. Unfortunately, because it can be difficult to see, it’s also one of the most neglected. A drone roof inspection is a great way to find small problems before they become big and expensive

Drone roof inspection

A drone roof inspection can help to spot problems in these critical areas before they become major:
  • Damaged or missing shingles
  • Flashing
  • Gutters
  • Fascia
  • Soffits

Roof inspections no longer require climbing ladders or scaffolding, and there’s no need to walk around on the roof (a leading cause of damage to tile roofs). Applying drone technology to roof inspections makes it easy to get a closeup look at all of the vulnerable areas of your roof on a regular basis.

A drone roof inspection by the professionals at Ahead Air is surprisingly affordable. Click here to schedule your drone roof inspection.
