The most common inspection use case for drones is inspecting roof damage following a big storm or hurricane. When a natural disaster hits, the need for certified inspectors and commercial drone pilots in an area can spike, with insurance companies hustling to hire enough pilots to fill their data collection needs.
Pre & Post Inspections
Before the storm strikes we inspect large development, construction projects, and residential communities. After the storm passes a team will be dispatched to collect data, photos, and videos that allow you to assess the damage without worrying about safety conditions and down power lines thanks to drone photography and videos. Safely access the damage after the storm and before the cleanup starts.

Reality Capture has been around, arguably since the first camera. Some might say since the invention of the papyrus in ancient Egypt. In more recent years, with every new sensor – be it thermal, hyperspectral, time of flight laser – new opportunities are presented for capturing our world in new ways. This could mean capturing data we never before had access to – like satellites showing us places we never knew existed. It could also mean capturing data at scale and efficiency where only manual methods previously existed – like drones using NDVI sensors to tell us within minutes the water levels of entire acres. Often, what new leaps in reality capture mean – going back to the first camera – is allowing us to agree with one another on what ‘reality’ actually was at a certain point in time.
In the property, insurance world agreeing on what reality actually was at a certain point in time is mission-critical for all sides involved in a claim. If a policyholder and carrier can’t agree on the value of the contents – we have a problem. If a contractor and an adjuster can’t agree on the extent of damage to a roof justifying a replacement – we have a problem. And problems in the claims world, an already contentious and tension-filled environment, mean heartache, frustration, and often lawsuits. Luckily, tools and best practices like cameras agreed upon pricing for work, and materials captured in Xactimate, thermal imagers, and more give the different stakeholders operating in this space a snapshot of reality everyone can agree upon. These tools reduce disputes and improve efficiency for each player individually and the system as a whole.
