Drone Thermal Roof Inspections for Moisture and Leak Detection — Nationwide Services
Tarillo Vue provides drone thermal roof inspections for roofing companies, public adjusters, lawyers, insurance providers and property owners. Our operators maintain a level 1 thermographers certification or better through the Infraspection Institute. We process our findings into a detailed report that is customizable to your specific needs and budget for each project.

Roof Inspection Options
You have the ability to choose how you would like us to be involved in the inspection process. Each of these steps are becoming industry standard to help companies prove or disprove roof moisture and determine whether repair or replacement are the proper solution based on the facts and numbers alone:
- Using drones, planes or helicopters, we will provide a thermal roof scan from an aerial perspective capturing all the areas of suspected moisture that require further review and inspection. This includes both thermal and visible imaging. Having this information saves a lot of time on the roof since we now know what areas we need to focus our physical inspection on.
- Based on the data collected from the air, we then perform a hand held thermal and visible inspection on the roof outlining the issues located while providing a thorough walk through inspecting the inside of the building for active leak locations and surface of the roof for tares, punctures and issues with welds in efforts to locate where the problems originate from.
- To prove our findings, we then finalize the inspection process by performing core sampling or moisture probing to physically confirm the areas we suspect moisture within the roof system.
By utilizing all three inspection methods, we can gather all the information and data needed to help you make educated decisions on whether to perform repairs or full replacement on commercial roof systems based on the numbers and evidence alone. This process also helps with determining if a roof is 20% or more total loss based on moisture content within the roof system to process insurance claims or help with legal battles.
Aerial Thermal/ Visible Imaging
Utilizing the DJI Matrice 210 paired with the Zenmuse XT 640R and X4S, we can capture high resolution aerial thermal and visible images for inspection purposes. We capture thermal images at 640x 512 and visible images are 20mp. We capture both types of images from directly overhead at a high elevation and zoomed in on different sections of the roof. We also capture obliques from every side and corner of the building to ensure you can review every angle of the roof from the images captures.
Handheld Thermal/ Visible Imaging
Once the aerial inspection is complete, we can narrow in and focus on the problems located with the handheld inspection and physical walk through. Utilizing the hand held thermal camera, we identify those problematic areas in detail and mark the roof accordingly. The infrared images are capture at a 640x 512 resolution and visible images are 12mp or better.
We can process the information we gather from our inspections in 2 different formats. The report sampled below is detailed and sufficient for insurance claims or legal representation of our findings. We can also process a more budget friendly report that is helpful in deciding whether a roof is right for repair or full replacement in consideration of the roofs full condition.
Measurements and Annotations
No matter how simple or complex your roof is, we can process a detailed measurement and annotations report providing you with total square footage, coping cap lengths, eaves, rakes, ridges, hips, pitches and much more. This data and information can help you consider replacement costs in correlation with the tangible evidence provided in our detailed reporting.
Total Moisture Calculations
In our processing, we have the ability to highlight the areas suspect of moisture and provide a calculate what percentage and square footage the roof is compromised. This calculation is highly beneficial when determining if a roof is a 20% total loss in insurance eyes or when determining if you need to consider repair or replacement on a roof. We can stitch and overlay both thermal and visible images to provide you with measurements and calculation on the areas of concern.
