Drone Image Capturing
Updated: Aug 21, 2018
Here at Parker Home Inspections we are always trying to find new and improved ways to not only improve our work, but get the WOW factor for our clients. Thats why we've decided to to include Drones to our tool belt.
PHI tries to climb every roof possible. Generally homes with a 3-6:12 slope. Thats pretty common in areas like St. Robert, Waynesville, Ft. Leonard Wood, and Rolla, but unfortunately thats not always a possible tasks. Most inspectors will inspect the roof from the eaves, or with binoculars from the ground. We take things to a whole new level and fly a drone over it.
Drones are a Safer, Cost-Effective Alternative to Boots-on-the-Roof
Falls are the leading cause of death on industrial job sites. With drones, you reduce, and in some cases eliminate, the need for ladder assists and boots-on-the-roof data collection.
The Beck Group — a Dallas-based commercial architecture and construction company — uses drones to perform remote roof inspections and cut the amount of time employees spend in dangerous areas. As Grant Hagen points out, if he can reduce time spent on a roof by three hours, that’s three hours an employee is on the ground and out of harm’s way.
