Drones on Roofs...Why?!

At Rocket Roofing, we are always on the lookout for innovative ways to provide you with the best roofing services possible. One of our game-changing advancements is the use of drone technology for roof inspections, particularly for hail damage. But you might be wondering, why drones? Let’s dive into why we often use drone technology to inspect roofs and how it benefits you.

Safety First: The Key Advantage

The most significant advantage of using drones for roof inspections is safety. Traditional roof inspections require someone to climb onto the roof, which can be dangerous, especially after severe weather events like hailstorms. Drones minimize the need for physical roof access, thereby reducing the risk of falls and injuries, although there are still occasions when roof access is necessary; we strive to minimize unnecessary safety risks as much as possible. By keeping our team on the ground, we prioritize safety without compromising on thoroughness and accuracy.

Efficiency and Time-Saving

Time is of the essence, especially when dealing with potential roof damage. Drone inspections are remarkably fast compared to traditional methods. A comprehensive inspection that might take hours can be completed in a fraction of the time with a drone. This means you get your inspection results faster, allowing you to take necessary actions without delay.

Transparency and Detailed Documentation

One of the standout features of drone inspections is the level of transparency they offer. The high-resolution images and videos captured by drones provide clear, detailed views of your roof’s condition. This visual documentation helps us explain the extent of any damage to you with complete transparency. You can see exactly what we see, ensuring you’re fully informed about the state of your roof.

Minimizing Unnecessary Risks and Damage

Traditional roof inspections can sometimes cause additional wear and tear, especially if the roof is already compromised. Drones avoid this problem entirely by conducting inspections without touching the roof. This non-invasive method ensures that we do not create unnecessary risks or cause extra damage during the inspection process. Your roof remains intact and undisturbed, allowing for a more accurate assessment of its condition.

Streamlined Insurance Processes

Insurance companies have also recognized the benefits of drone technology. Many insurers now utilize drones for their assessments and some even use the same software we do at Rocket Roofing. This streamlines the entire process, making it easier for us to review detailed inspection reports with your insurance provider. As a result, claims are processed more efficiently, and you can get the repairs you need without unnecessary delays.

Pioneers in Drone Technology

Rocket Roofing’s founders were amongst the first in Nebraska to utilize drones for roof inspections. While some others have since adopted this technology, we pride ourselves on being innovators and technology pioneers in this space. Our early adoption of drone technology reflects our commitment to staying ahead of the curve and continually improving our services to better meet your needs.
