Drone Inspections

Donn Anderson is an FAA Certified Commercial Remote Pilot.

If a roof is too steep or a chimney is too tall to see the crown, how would you know whether or not there are indications of leaks?
A certified drone inspection helps solve accessing difficult areas that you can not inspect from the ground or without special equipment.

DID YOU KNOW?
Home inspectors are not required to climb roofs.

What will your home inspection report be missing if your inspector doesn’t inspect the roof, flashings, chimney and everything else they can’t see from the ground?!

Within FAA guidelines, as weather permits, Donn typically inspects roof coverings, chimneys and flashings that can’t be inspected by those who can’t access a steep or brittle roof or a chimney that can’t be reached without special equipment.

Water is the worst enemy of a home and the first lines of defense are roof flashings and penetrations such as the chimneys and plumbing stacks.
It is vital that these areas are inspected!
