Roofing Innovation: New Roofing Technology Trends
Trying to keep up with the latest tech trends, contractors have begun using equipment that allows them to finish their work faster and more efficiently. John Peters Roofing, one of the top roofers in the state, lists some of the roofing tech trends that are gaining traction in the industry below.
Using drones in roof inspections has several advantages. For one thing, drones have made inspections faster and a lot cheaper. Contractors don’t need as much manpower to conduct drone inspections; in fact, all they need is one person to control and guide the drone. Since a single drone is the only equipment that’s needed in this type of inspection, the contractor and the customer can cut back on equipment rental costs.
Drone inspections also offer a more accurate assessment of your roofing system. Thanks to their small size and mobility, drones can easily access and look for signs of damage in hard-to-reach areas. Equipped with high-resolution and infrared cameras, they can even detect pockets of moisture trapped within your roofing system before signs of damage start to manifest. This is a significant advantage for commercial building owners.
The processing of the data from roof inspections is quicker as well thanks to cloud software. Contractors can pass on data in real-time and quickly find the info they need with just a few clicks. For eco-conscious homeowners, this also has the benefit of practically eliminating the need for paper.
Eco-Friendly Roofing Materials
A paperless workplace isn’t the only point where roofing tech trends and the larger green trend converge. Manufacturers and contractors alike have begun offering more green, energy-efficient roofing options as more and more homeowners discover the benefits of going green.
