From the Rooftops

What We Can’t See From the Ground

Austin Area Home Inspections.  Some roofs are just too tough to walk or even see with a ladder.  Check out some recent roof photos captured with Drone technology.  These issues could never be seen from the eaves on a ladder.  Next time you consider having a home inspection make sure to ask your inspector how they will inspect the roof.  Many home inspectors in Austin do NOT even walk on roofs – PERIOD.  They are actually NOT required to walk any roof.  When possible I will walk every roof where the pitch allows or I will place my ladder around the eaves and take zoom photos of the shingles.  If that doesn’t work I also carry a high power scope the captures visible roof areas quite nicely.  If all else fails, Drone technology picks up the slack and lets me see the areas I cannot get to.
