Comprehensive Roof Inspection: Ensuring Safety and Accuracy

At Examina Inspections, nestled in the heart of the Sunshine Coast, BC, we pride ourselves on a meticulous approach to roof inspections. We understand that a thorough examination of your roof is crucial in safeguarding your property. Our comprehensive process is tailored to ensure a detailed assessment while prioritizing the safety of our inspectors.

A Hands-On Approach for Precision: Walking The Roof

Our primary method involves a direct, hands-on inspection. This approach allows us to walk the roof, enabling a close-up evaluation of every aspect, including the roof covering, gutters, skylights, chimneys, and other roof features. We believe this method offers the most detailed and accurate assessment, helping us identify potential issues and areas of concern.

Adapting to Challenges: Drone Inspections

We recognize that not all roofs are suitable for walking, whether due to steep slopes or particular roofing materials. In these scenarios, we utilize our high-tech drone equipped with a high-resolution camera. Our drone provide us with a comprehensive view of your roof, capturing detailed images from every angle and of every roof penetration. This innovative method allows us to conduct thorough inspections without compromising the safety of our inspectors or causing any damage to the property.

Utilizing Binocular Inspections When Necessary

In situations where neither walking the roof nor drone inspections are viable, such as adverse weather conditions, we resort to binocular inspections. Our inspectors are expertly trained to identify even the slightest signs of damage or wear using high-powered binoculars. While this method may not be as exhaustive as the other two, you’d be surprised at the level of detail we can discern from the ground.

Prioritizing Safety and Transparency

We understand that there may be times when weather conditions or safety concerns prevent a roof inspection. In such instances, our top priority is the safety of both the inspector and your property. We make sure to communicate any such limitations during our inspection walkthrough. This transparency allows us to discuss alternative options, such as a limited inspection or rescheduling, ensuring the inspection is carried out under safe conditions.
