By eliminating the need for a person on the roof, operations instantly become safer. Drones further reduce injury risk by identifying hidden threats not usually seen by roofers. For example, DroneDeploy’s Thermal Live Map can alert contractors to water damage. Other dangers not typically picked up by traditional satellite imagery include overhanging trees, power lines, or fallen objects. With DroneDeploy’s geotagged images, contractors can quickly annotate and identify these threats for easy removal, frequently translating into lower insurance premiums and liability costs overall.
