A “bird’s eye view” can be helpful for many reasons. To get to those hard-to-reach areas on your roof. To capture EVERY corner of your land. To just look at your home from a different angle overall.

The problem is, birds don’t provide very good home inspections.

With the help of a drone, we can provide a next-level inspection: a drone roof inspection and overall view of your property allows us to obtain more precise and concrete insights about your potential investment.

A drone inspection will:

  • Capture high-definition photo and video of your home from an ariel vantage point.
  • Help home inspectors view areas of the home that are too dangerous or too difficult to see from the ground or with a ladder.
  • Show the homeowner vulnerabilities on their roof that need attention, that they would never have seen otherwise.


A drone inspection is a great service that we have been capable of providing our clients in recent years. These are helpful when we do not have a safe area to view all points of the roof or if there is an area of the property that is particularly challenging to access. 

Home inspections are meant to protect the buyers and help them know their homes before they make a huge financial commitment. Drones are one more tool in our tool belt to help provide you the most accurate and thorough home inspection possible.


Reasons To Get A Drone Inspection


  • Buyer protection – Before closing on a new home, a drone roof inspection will help protect the buyer from having to pay for costly roof repairs that weren’t originally acknowledged by the sellers.
  • Home maintenance – Keeping your home and roof in good condition requires consistent monitoring. A drone roof inspection can locate issues that need to be addressed before they escalate into more severe problems.
  • Insurance claims – Drones can be used by home inspectors to check for damage that may have been storms or other natural disasters. A drone roof inspection can capture footage damages that can be submitted in insurance claims.


Drone Inspection FAQs

Still have questions? Check below to see if we’ve answered them. If not, check out our FAQ page or reach out to us.

Are your home inspectors licensed to operate drones?

Yes, any home inspector working for MKC Associates that can operate a drone has been properly certified and licensed.

How do drones help home inspectors?

Drones allow home inspectors to access parts of the home that were previously very dangerous to try and access on foot, or even impossible to access at all. Drones are efficient, and they can save home inspectors time as well.

Can you use a drone for a roof inspection anywhere?

Drones are regulated by flight laws, and these laws vary by state-to-state. Generally speaking, it’s not an issue to deploy a drone on someone’s private property during daylight hours. But, if homeowners live in an association, near an airport, or in a populated city area, there are laws restricting drone flight. Your drone operating home inspector will know the local laws concerning drones.

Buyers Home Inspection

Buyer’s Inspection

Buying a home is likely one of the largest investments you’ll ever make. That’s why it’s so crucial that buyers understand exactly what they’re getting into. During a buyer’s inspection, we form a close partnership with the buyer. We’ll be your guide as we explain any property defects or issues we uncover. We’ll also answer any questions you have.

Pre Listing Inspection

Pre-Listing Inspection

If you’re selling a home or property, it’s a good idea to have it inspected before it’s listed. Houses with a pre-listing inspection are more attractive to potential buyers. Pre-listing inspections give sellers the chance to work with us to uncover issues or necessary repairs. We’ll also give you our expert recommendations on what repairs to make before showing the property.

New Construction Inspection

New Construction HOME Inspection

Before the final walk-through with the builder, a new home should undergo a new construction home inspection. We thoroughly search the home for building defects and anything that may have been overlooked during construction. This allows the builder to better prepare the home for its walk-through, which results in an easier and smoother move-in experience.

11 Month Warranty Inspection

ONE YEAR HOME Warranty Inspection

Many newly constructed homes are sold along with a 12-month builder’s warranty that covers the cost of repairs associated with constructional defects. During a one year home warranty inspection, we help homeowners identify the repairs they should request before their warranty expires. This prevents you from becoming financially responsible for problems that should fall to the original builder.

Re Inspection


After a buyer’s home inspection, the buyer and seller of a home will come to an agreement about what repairs should be made before closing. Once those repairs are made, a re-inspection can be performed in order to ensure all agreements were honored and that the necessary repairs were made.

Commercial Building Inspection

Commercial Building Inspection

During a commercial property inspection, we help buyers of commercial buildings better understand their potential new property before making the final purchase. Just like our home inspection services, we make sure that our commercial inspections are thorough and backed by our experienced and dedicated inspectors. We provide you with a detailed report that clearly breaks down our findings and recommendations.
