Every roof inspector, claims adjuster, and solar installer has long dreamed of being able to do their job from the safety of the ground. Roof inspection is dangerous and time-consuming work and maintaining accuracy and consistency within a set of rooftop measurements can be challenging. Manual measurement is inefficient and often results in errors or missed information, requiring teams to follow up with a secondary inspection. With Hunter UAS, you no longer have to worry about inaccurate data or having to return to a site to gather missed information. Unlike other solutions, the data you’re working with is up-to-date, so you’re not dealing with imagery that is weeks or months old.
With high-resolution aerial maps and models, roof inspection and analysis becomes safer, streamlined, and more accurate. Here are some of the benefits of leveraging Hunter UAS in the roofing sector:
High-Resolution Maps and 3D Models
Unlike traditional methods, we use unmanned aircraft to accurately collect roof data. With a Live Map feature, you can instantly see your map appear in real time as the UAV flies. Once the data is collected, you can process and export your reports for further analysis.
Accurate and Consistent Measurements
Hunter UAS utilizes roofing software that uses optical sensors and learning algorithms to generate automated measurements that are 99% accurate. This eliminates the potential for measurement error, and makes it possible to measure square footage, roof features, pitch, surface area, and slope consistently across every site.

Visual and Thermal Inspection from the Safety of the Ground
Your business no longer has to scale a ladder or walk out on a ledge to complete a visual inspection. With Hunter UAS, you can safely inspect dangerous or inaccessible areas. Pinpoint issues—such as cracks, leaks, and damage—with high-resolution orthomosaic and thermal maps, and eliminate the need to climb a roof until it requires repair.
A Rich Set of Data to Aid in the Design Process
With the collected data, you can move beyond inspections and use aerial imagery in the design process. Each UAS flight captures high-resolution 3D point images that can be integrated with your existing design tools or exported in the format of your choice. With richer datasets and export options, you can streamline workflows and shave days, or even weeks, off a design timeline.
