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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
