Drone technology is proving useful in many ways, but especially in the world of public adjusters. They offer a unique opportunity to evaluate property damage and more carefully assess damages sustained after a disastrous event.

However, not every public adjusting firm is advancing with the speed of new technology. Drone flying offers a new set of opportunities when expertly flown and managed properly.

SunPoint Public Adjusters, Inc. is proud to provide FAA-certified drone capabilities to more accurately determine damages sustained and maximize the potential of your settlement amount.

Main Benefits of Using Drones for External Property Damage

Some of the main benefits of using drones when analyzing exterior damages include the following:


Safety is a major concern when someone physically assesses property damage, especially on the roof of a home or office building. The integrity of building materials is often severely compromised following a major flood, wildfire, wind storm, or other calamities.

Physically inspecting the property might cause harm to the person conducting the inspection as well as the delicate structure of the building itself. Drones offer a touchless alternative to retrieve a clear aerial analysis.


Drones are more efficient due to their ability to adjust to dim lighting and capture both broad and detailed imagery that might go unnoticed when conducting a manual inspection. They capture details that might otherwise be overlooked.

Using drones is an easier and more convenient way to see what’s happening in parts of the building that are not easy to locate physically. They can offer a heads up on what you might be dealing with should you decide to venture up close to the parts of the building facing mild to severe damage.

Addressing damaged roofs

Another major benefit to inspecting exterior damage is when used to document the aftermath of harmed roofs. Using drone feedback, you’ll have a vantage point to see what areas were impacted the worst and to obtain the clear data necessary for filing and supporting the claims process.

Navigating the aftermath of a catastrophe not only involves addressing the physical damages but also the logistical paperwork that accompanies a settlement outcome.

Drones assist in the overall process by providing a safe, quick, and accurate analysis of what you’re facing and how best to navigate the process with your public adjuster.
