Advantage takes Home Inspections to new Heights! With the use of drones licensed and Certified Home Inspector Don Egan, a graduate of ITI, was the first inspector in the East Long Island area to use drone technology to inspect roofs. This drone roof inspection technology has many advantages since many roof types should not be walked on or may have too steep of a pitch and can endanger the inspector. This eliminates those problems and allows the roof inspector to take unlimited up-close pictures as part of the roof inspection process.
The drone roof inspection technology can help identify hail damage, wind damage, damage caused by trees and more. Senior Inspector Don Egan states that he uses it mostly for new home-buyers since the roof is a high cost item that all buyers want to know about. According to Nick Gromicko, who heads up the Nation’s largest home inspection association,”the applications for home and commercial property inspections are numerous, such as for inspecting roofs (especially those with steep pitches), as well as getting a bird’s-eye view of the surrounding property”.
