Drone-based aerial intelligence solution provider Kespry and certified roofing contractor network XAP 360 partnered to deliver a drone-based roofing inspection program, according to a news release. The program will greatly reduce the amount of time taken up by roofing inspections. According to the companies, the drone-based program can provide autonomous inspections that take only 10 minutes.
Historically, home roofing inspections have often been a frustrating experience. Many homeowners have stories to tell about unethical or unlicensed roofers that provide unsubstantiated damage claims. These roofers have also frustrated insurers tired of dealing with questionable assessments, who then have to conduct their own secondary inspections for verification.
XAP 360 and Kespry are working together to regain the trust of residential property owners by establishing verifiable, credible standards for residential roof inspections, involving artificial intelligence and machine learning-based analytics. Both companies are engaged with top insurers who have come to value the transparency and accuracy they deliver. In addition, Kespry and XAP 360 are cutting time and costs for inspection by 50-75%. With Kespry and XAP 360, manual inspections that used to take up to 90 minutes are being replaced by an autonomous drone-based solution that takes as little as 10 minutes to complete the same work.
“Together, Kespry and XAP 360 are making residential roofing inspections as accurate and painless as possible,” explains George Mathew, CEO of Kespry. “We’ve listened to what homeowners want from the inspection process, including speed and comprehensive, verifiable detail driven by technology, trusted by major insurance carriers across the country. We’re proud to help homeowners rapidly identify and address their roofing repair issues so they can get on with their lives as quickly as possible.”
“With XAP 360 and Kespry, roofing professionals and property owners can finally sit at the same table and communicate honestly and openly,” adds Phil Pratt, partner at XAP 360. “Together, Kespry and XAP 360 bridge the existing uncertainty gap with transparency. Guided by the most sound technological innovations in aerial intelligence from Kespry, all parties move forward together while avoiding classic pitfalls. Roofers can say goodbye to gimmicks and hello to an easily adopted platform in which everyone wins.”Read More
