Quality Roofing from Georgia Whitt Roofing Contractor Is Revolutionizing Commercial Roofing Using Drone Technology
Whitt’s Quality Roofing, a commercial roofing company in Georgia, is ushering in the future for roofing contractors by using drone technology to change the way roof inspections are performed.
Key to Whitt’s Quality Roofing foray into the cutting edge of roofing technology is iRoofing, a mobile software platform created and designed specifically for roofing contractors. iRoofing has modernized the way roofing contractors measure, estimate, simulate and present roof repair and replacement projects for homes and commercial projects. iRoofing’s software capabilities make roof inspections faster and safer while allowing homeowners to make informed decisions about their roofs.
The software suite’s flagship feature that is set to be a game-changer for the roofing industry, and the one that Whitt’s Quality Roofing says is most excited about, is its integration with aerial drone photography. iRoofing uses a proprietary feature called Clearoof™ which accepts high resolution aerial images and processes them using sophisticated image processing algorithms to measure and extract relevant information for roofing work. Additionally, images captured by the drone can also be stored and used to facilitate the subsequent filing of an insurance claim by the owner.
A spokesperson for Whitt’s Quality Roofing explains how drone technology is making life easier for roofing contractors as well as their residential and commercial customers, saying, “As contractors, we can come to your property, install our drone and carry out our inspection without having to climb on the roof. This change in workflow is a huge benefit when it comes to workplace safety. Once we get the images, we enter them into iRoofing’s software directly on site as it works on almost any mobile device including Android tablet, Android phone, iPad and iPhone. The software works its magic and you will be able to see the damage to your roof first hand. We can even use iRoofing’s visualization tools to show you what your roof will look like once we’ve completed implementing the roof repair or replacement. For you, that means you don’t have to struggle with a ladder to see your roof’s problems. You can also choose from the ideal roofing materials for your repair based on their appearance and affordability, as iRoofing has an up-to-date database of products from all major roofing material manufacturing brands. Since we don’t waste a lot of time on each site, our customers also benefit from faster response times. From our experience in the field, many of our clients hire us on the spot without asking for a second opinion since they can instantly visualize what their roof will look like when we’re done.
The spokesperson for Whitt’s Quality Roofing then addresses some of the fear campaigns surrounding the technology, saying: “Drones get a bad rap from some owners because of the privacy concerns they raise. During the nascent days of hobbyist drone use, this was a concern, but their popularity prompted the United States government to step in and regulate their use. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) stepped in and established requirements for recreational and commercial drone users. These laws oversee how, when, and where a licensee can fly drones. This adds liability to the use of drones and eliminates the misuse of this technology. As a responsible roofing contractor, we have all required local and federal licenses and our roofing technicians have been trained to follow all drone flight best practices.
