It is important for home inspectors to keep up to date when it comes to new technology and information in their field. In the past decade, the use of drones has dramatically increased the home inspection industry’s ability to safely and efficiently perform roofing inspections and inspect other hard to reach places on a property. While learning new technology can be intimidating for some people, the amount of time and money a drone can save a home inspector’s business makes it well worth the effort.

As licensed home inspectors themselves, Mike and Kevin Hesterberg know firsthand how much using a drone in their business can save time and money. After one of their inspectors fell off of a ladder during a roof inspection, the father-son team looked for other options. Not only do drones allow them to do more inspections in a day, but by utilizing thermal scans, they can clearly see where water is pooling on roofs. They can also clearly see in full aerial shots where shingles are worn and need replaced, as well as when flashing is not properly installed, or when chimneys are in disrepair. Using a drone for roof inspections is the best practice for the industry and Kevin and Mike are dedicated to helping other inspectors learn how.

During a continuing education course, Mike and Kevin will go over all of the uses drones have in a home inspection. They will explain how thermal scans work, and how the software can be accessed instantly so that the customer can see the initial photos during the inspection. Mike and Kevin will also discuss what types of drones they use, what the cost and maintenance upkeep is like, and how often their drones require repairs. Finally, they will go over what an inspection company needs to do to get their employees’ licensed, and answer any questions regarding the FAA’s part 107 drone license test.
