Drone Technology for Roof Inspection

According to roof inspection companies, using a drone allows them to finish jobs three times faster than if they did them using traditional methods. This capability also lets them offer more premium services because they can commit to shorter turnover times and more detailed roof inspections reports.

Nationwide, they cost an average of $150 to $400. The inspector flies a drone equipped with a camera over the roof, capturing close-up footage of all surfaces for the expert to analyze.

Do roofers use drones?

Drones used in roofing inspection is increasingly common across North America. Held in high regard in the construction and building inspection industries as well, drones in roofing have significant value. They make the inspection process go faster, lower costs, and there is no risk involved.
 
Increase productivity and improve safety. An aerial drone roof inspection can speed up the inspection process, and reduce the risk of work accidents and damage to the client’s property. It is also incredibly precise, with drone roof inspection measurements 95% accurate.

Drones Get the Job Done Faster

Any roof inspection requires a great deal of planning and preparation. Much of this is dedicated to ensuring the safety and compliance of workers.

With drones, however, it’s easier to carry out an inspection shortly after a client makes the request. Because drones don’t mount and climb access equipment, drone-based examinations begin immediately and take a fraction of the time of conventional methods.

Additionally, drones can transmit data to the inspection team immediately, which allows for faster report generation and less risk.

Features to look for in a drone for roof inspection:

  1. Flight stability – One of the most important features for drone roof inspection is stability. The drone must withstand the prevailing weather conditions including moderate and strong winds.
  2. High-resolution camera – When doing a roof inspection, you would want your videos and photos to be as detailed as possible. Nowadays, recording videos for professional use at a resolution below 4k is already unacceptable.
  3. Obstacle avoidance systems – To capture detailed shots or footage of a roof. Drone must fly close and low. It is not recommended to a drone to fly autonomously if it doesn’t come equipped with a good obstacle avoidance system.
  4. Thermal Camera – Thermal imaging cameras of drones allows inspectors to scan large areas for moisture trapped underneath roof membranes and look for the effects of structural issues. The thermal camera detects this temperature difference and displays it as colors – for example, dark tones indicating cold moisture or light tones indicating heat escaping through the uninsulated roof.
  5. GPS guidance/Satellite Positioning – Not only does it make controlling your drone much easier, but it also paves the road for many other advanced features which can be of great help, especially for a roof inspection. GPS allows several other smart flight modes including Orbit, Follow Mode, Waypoints etc.
  6. Long battery life – The longer the battery the better. Any drone that can fly for 25 minutes or more on a single battery cycle should do.

How to Measure For New Siding

How do I calculate how much siding I need?

Start by measuring the height and width of each wall of the building. Multiply each length and height measurement to find the square footage of each wall, then add them together to find the total square footage. Divide the total by 100 to find the number of squares of vinyl siding to order.
 
A “square of siding” is a measurement of siding material. One square of siding is sufficient to cover 100 square feet of wall space. A square of siding is thus sufficient to cover a 10-foot by 10-foot section of exterior wall.

How many square feet does a box of siding cover?

200 square feet
 
A box of vinyl siding contains two “squares.” A square in construction lingo equals 100 square feet, so a box of vinyl siding will cover 200 square feet.
 

 Follow these steps for calculations you’ll use to learn how to measure for wood siding:

  1. Measure height and width of each side. For each side, multiply height times width to get the total square feet.
  2. Measure other areas not included in the sides, such as gables, dormers and more. For triangle areas, measure from the base of the triangle to the top and multiply that number by half of the base length.
  3. Measure the height and width of each window, door and other areas not covered by siding. When in doubt, account for 15 square feet for windows and 20 square feet for doors.
  4. Add together the square footage you calculated for the sides of your home and the additional areas.
  5. Subtract the uncovered areas’ square footage from the total amount you calculated in step four.
  6. Divide this number by 100 to get the number of squares of siding you will need to order.

Aerial vs. Onsite Roofing

We are now at the point where we can give someone a home improvement estimate without having to lay a hand on the house.

This is because companies like SKY Roof Measure allow us to get a fully rendered and measured 3D model of any home simply by transforming photos taken with your smartphone. This has helped contractors and insurance carriers to become more efficient, reduce their costs, and minimize closing times all through an app.

The accuracy of onsite measurements is more accurate than a plane flying hundreds of feet higher. The aerial measurements are usually rounded to the nearest foot rather than the in-person measurements where they get down to the inch.

  • Problem solving

  • Review Measurements – Access all roof and siding measurements within the 3D model in their app or online. Or export via PDF, Excel, or other file formats. Design in 3D – Change the roof, siding, and windows using real materials from brands like GAF, JamesHardie, and Alside. See the finished project with their fully shareable 3D model.

Why Getting Detailed Roof Measurements is Important & Helpful

Getting detailed and accurate rooftop measurements is important for a variety of applications. Perhaps you work for a construction firm. You may need detailed diagrams of the roof with accurate measurements of the ridges, valleys, hips, eaves, and a clear visual understanding of where vent pipes and chimneys are located on the roof. 

You could also be performing a rooftop inspection and need to properly assess a damaged area for an accurate estimate for repair. Or perhaps you need to calculate the area of your roof to estimate the cost of getting it re-shingled or get a quote for a solar panel installation.

Drones present a unique opportunity for getting a clear view of your rooftop and allowing you to get precise roof measurements. A variety of roof measuring applications and programs already take advantage of high-resolution drone imagery to get accurate roof measurements.

How to Manually Measure a Roof

To manually measure a roof without the help of aerial measurement reports, you must visit a job site and climb onto the roof to take precise roof measurements by hand.

  1. Measure the width and length of each plane of the roof (including dormers), and then multiply those numbers to get the correct figure for the square footage of that area.
  2. Note any skylights, chimneys or other parts of the roof that would not require materials so you can subtract those measurements from your total area.
  3. Add together the calculated square footage of each surface to get the figure for total square footage of the roof.
  4. After determining the total square footage of the roof, you must calculate the pitch of the roof by measuring the vertical distance (rise) over a 12 inch horizontal segment (run).
  5. Write down these numbers as the vertical measurement listed first and the horizontal measurement recorded second so you can find rise over run.
  6. When you have the total square footage and rise over run of the roof, you can calculate the roof squares to determine how much materials are needed to cover the roof. To calculate the number of squares on a roof, you need to divide its total square feet by 100.

With those figures, you can then estimate the roofing supplies needed for a job.

How To Measure The Roof Using Google Earth

There are many great benefits to using Google Earth to measure your roof but nothing is as good as using DIY’s satellite roof measurement. The first of which is that you don’t even have to go up on the roof. This can make it even safer to do your measuring and it also removes a level of guessing to your calculation.

To begin with, you’re going to go to the app on your mobile device, or you will need to go to Google Earth on your laptop or desktop computer. There are many options here and you’ll want to select the one that allows you to enter the address. You can also zoom the map and click on the starting point of the roof you wish to select. After you’ve done this, you can click along the outer edge of the roof that you wish to calculate the area for.

Roofing Measurements Using Google Earth

Each time you add points, the area will update and there is a box below that will convert this into acres, meters, kilometers, miles, and finally, square feet. It will also give you the perimeter of the shape of the roof.

Using this tool will be very helpful for you in finding out the acreage or the tract of land of your property. It will also give you the square footage of your roof and any other areas that you’re wanting to estimate. You can even embed this tool on a website that you own.

While these tools are very helpful, there are a few variables that you’ll want to know. If you’re in a rural area, you may have to go with the cross streets as the address may not bring up what you’re looking for. In such areas, you may wind up using the GPS coordinates or a landmark to get to where you’re going.

If you’re using the GPS, you’ll want to enter the latitude and then use a comma and enter the longitude. This will put you at a reference point that you can use to locate the facility or building that you wish to calculate the roofing on.
