What is a drone roof inspection?

A drone roof inspection is a modern method of assessing the condition of a roof using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones. This technique involves flying a drone equipped with high-resolution cameras and sometimes thermal imaging devices over a property to capture detailed images and videos of the roof’s surface. The collected data allows for a comprehensive evaluation of the roof’s condition, identifying issues such as leaks, damage, or wear and tear without the need for physical access. Additionally, drone inspections can access hard-to-reach areas and offer a thorough overview that traditional methods might miss, making them a valuable tool for roof inspections.

When the roofing inspector from The Elite Group arrives at your home, they will look for:

  • Shingles that are damaged or missing
  • Shingles covered in moss
  • Shingles that are faded or discolored
  • Roofing that is buckling, sagging, or bowing
  • Gutters that are clogged, dirty, or damaged
  • Fascia and soffits that are rotting or damaged
  • Roof flashing that is torn or damaged
  • Signs of wood rot
  • Gaps in the roof allowing light into the attic
  • And more!

If we notice any signs of damage or disrepair, we’ll make note of it in our report. Our roofing inspectors will clearly communicate the results of the roofing assessments so you can make an informed decision about how you would like to proceed with repairs.

I am extremely pleased with the property inspection I recently received. Very through, very professional, and the report was prepared and delivered to my agent and me overnight! Thank you, Elite Group!

Got David and he was amazing. He explained everything and answered any questions we had. We bought the elite package. Only bummed that the swabs from the mold he found were going to be an additional charge to send them to the lab. But he did find a leak that you could not have seen to the naked eye due to recent paint job. I would definitely use them again.

I’ve had the great opportunity to work with Philip Reams on two inspections and he has been excellent to work with each time. He is prompt, professional and did a very thorough job. He’s very knowledgeable and took time to answer all our questions. He put everyone at ease about the inspection and made the overall experience great.

Todd Smith of Elite Group Property Inspections inspected a property in Fullerton for us. He was very thorough and spent a lot of time on the phone with us after the inspection, as we were unable to be at the actual inspection. We would most definitely hire him again.
