Drone inspections for roof and gutter systems

A roof is vital for any residential or commercial building because it protects the structure from extreme weather conditions, heavy winds, and snow. A sustainable roof maintains and supports the structure of a building. Because it withstands the weather, a roof often suffers wear and tear over time. It deteriorates the structure and stability of the roof. It is important to use a regular roof inspection to avoid emergency repairs that result in major expenses. A commercial drone may decrease the need for man-hours to inspect the roof and overcome all of the difficulties associated with traditional inspection methods. A neglected gutter may also cause a decline in performance and cause water ingression. Regular checks are needed to avert a number of issues.

Reduced manpower, equipment, and time demands are just a few of the benefits associated with using drones. Because of this, we can perform a comprehensive inspection in a brief amount of time. We can also save money by avoiding the expense of labor and climbing gear. Drones help in numerous ways to save money, which would otherwise be unattainable using conventional methods. We can avoid safety risks by using drones in lieu of traditional inspection methods. Using traditional methods to examine roofs and gutters requires physical personnel to be physically present at a working location. The drone can prevent any damage to a roof or gutter by eliminating the need for personnel to walk on the roof.

A roof inspection using drones allows us to inspect every corner and every difficult-to-reach spot. Using drones, we can collect data using high-definition images and videos. When we inspect a roof using drones, we can examine a wider region without the risk of being at a higher elevation. We can also avoid physical damage that may occur with traditional inspection methods. As a result, we can identify defects including buckling, missing or damaged shingles, and gaps in the roof. It is critical to detect these issues as soon as possible to avoid potential risks and expenses. Blocked pipes, broken joints, rusty, corroded, or undesirable plant growth can all be spotted with regular gutter inspections.

Give your golf course a Drone check-up!

The green shows the healthy areas of the course.  The yellow areas document the unhealthy areas that need attention.  The red areas show vegetation dormancy, roads, dirt and buildings.

Our NDVI Drone camera has the ability to decipher differences of up to three-hundredths of a degree Celsius. The thermal image is then scaled down to a narrow temperature spectrum and a color palate is applied to assess the variation.
With these images, you can see the problem areas of the golf course, and then go out and address these specific areas.

Call us today to review your project requirements.

Dave Topping and Rob Haller shot aerial video production and still photography for a full day in Pekin Illinois.  We utilized the Inspire Drone with 4K video camera resolution and 12 MP still images.  And no, those clouds appearing as smoke from the stack were captured in real time and not added later.  Sometimes a lucky photographer is the best to hire, LOL.

News Report Fox 2 Mandy Murphy St Louis Drones | Commercial Video Production Company

Here is a report on our creative crew members from Fox 2 News Mandy Murphy


ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The FAA last week decided to allow commercial use of drones under strict guidelines. The decision has been in the works since 2005 and still needs final approval. Current rules for drones are to fly for recreation. If commercial you need a pilot’s license. The new FAA rules allow for drones under 55 pounds, you must fly below 500 feet, further than 5 miles from an airport and not directly overhead of people. You must maintain constant visual line of site with the drone.

Haller Concepts of South County is already using drones from commercial photography and video. Safety is the most important aspect for Haller. They always use a two-man crew. One person operates the drone and keeps constant line of sight while the other watches the shot and directs the operator. Haller and many others like them will get their certificate of authorization.

Technology is far outpacing government rules. Law enforcement across the country are interested in using drones. St. Louis Police have asked for permission from the FAA. Groups like drone free St. Louis are opposed to police drones. They want strict privacy rules from the government.

Right now, the new ruling does not allow for companies like Amazon to begin delivering packages using a GPS drone. Line of sight is still required. It may take a year or two for the new FAA rules to be fully implemented.
