Georgia Roofing Contractor Whitt's Quality Roofing Is Revolutionizing Commercial Roofing Using Drone Technology
September 19, 2022 at 16:16
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 carried out.
The key to Whitt’s Quality Roofing’s foray into the cutting edge of roofing technology is iRoofing, a mobile software platform created and designed especially for roofing contractors. iRoofing has modernized the way that 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 better equipping homeowners to make informed decisions about their roofs.
The software suite’s killer feature that is destined to be a game changer for the roofing industry, and the one that Whitt’s Quality Roofing says it is most excited about, is its integration with aerial drone photography. iRoofing utilizes a proprietary feature named Clearoof™ which accepts high-resolution aerial images and processes them using sophisticated image processing algorithms to measure and extract the information that is relevant to the roofing job. Moreover, the images captured from the drone can also be stored and used to make it easier for the property owner to later file an insurance claim.
A spokesperson for Whitt’s Quality Roofing talks about how drone technology makes lives easier for roofing contractors as well as their residential and commercial customers by saying, “As contractors, we can arrive on your property, set up our drone, and perform our inspection without having to climb on to the roof. This change in workflow is a huge boon when it comes to workplace safety. Once we get the images, we input them into iRoofing’s software right on site as it runs on almost any mobile device including an Android tablet, Android phone, iPad, and iPhone. The software works its magic and you will be able to see the damage to your roof firsthand. We can even use iRoofing’s visualization tools to show you how your roof will look after we are done implementing the roof repair or replacement. For you, it means that you don’t have to grapple with a ladder to view your roof’s problems. You also get to choose from the ideal roofing materials for your repair based on their look and affordability as iRoofing has an updated 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 get to enjoy shortened response times. From our experience in the field, many of our customers hire us on the spot without seeking a second opinion since they instantly get to visualize how their roof will look like after we are done.”
The spokesperson for Whitt’s Quality Roofing then goes on to address some of the fear-mongering surrounding the technology by saying, “Drones get a bad rap from some homeowners because of the privacy concerns that they raise. During the nascent days of hobbyist drone usage, this was a concern but their popularity has prompted the United States government to step in and regulate their use. The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) has stepped in and set up requirements for both recreational as well as commercial drone users. These laws oversee how, when, and where a license holder can fly drones. This adds accountability to drone usage and eliminates the misuse of this technology. As a responsible roofing contractor, we have all the required local as well as federal licenses and our roofing technicians have been trained to follow all the best drone flying practices.”
Whitt’s Quality Roofing serves several areas in Georgia including Warner Robins, Macon, Perry, Americus, Montezuma, Cordele, Tifton, Atlanta, Milledgeville, Dublin, Columbus, and more. The company has more than 15 years of experience working on industrial warehouses, prisons, apartment complexes, hotels, government buildings, and more installing, repairing, and maintaining roofs. The company can work with all kinds of roofing materials including metal, shingles, flat roof materials such as TPO or EPDM coatings, and foam.
