Do you walk the roof?

Yes, and the sun is brighter up there.

My roofie.

You look so happy to be there, is this number 2? Or a shot from the first one? :slight_smile:
And yes, I traverse the roof, it if it is safe. :wink:

Numero uno.

Yes… if I can do so safely.

I can’t believe you copied me too


I started the roofie craze

I personally do the roof inspections myself. I have hired contractors to do it in the past, however, I felt their inspection was a little rushed and the report that I was provided at the end was typically very brief and unprofessional (just my experiences). I prefer to have the Realtors and my Clients see me spend time physically on the roof and then I provide a very detailed roof report within my HI report. I personally feel that you should walk the roof (if safe). This is the best way to inspect all appurtenances, valleys, possible limb abrasions, and overall condition of shingles, tiles (chips, tears, scuffs, broken edges, fasteners in wrong places, rusted or exposed fasteners, etc. I just can’t get all this information (for the entire roof) from the ladder. Strictly speaking for myself, there is no adequate substitute for walking the roof when a safe environment exists.

Lol… when did you start the “roofie” craze?

In many cases, a well operated drone can give you the same information as traversing a roof, other than that ‘under foot’ feeling.

A few months ago I was doing a roof inspection and one of my competitors drove into their house so I took a selfie with me in their truck in the background from the roof and called it a roofie I was wondering how he must have felt coming home and his competitor is on his neighbor’s roof doing an inspection that had to hurt


I haven’t tried a drone yet. I just can’t imagine it being as accurate or as relative as actually touching an area, lifting loose shingles to check for correct placement of fasteners, etc. I’m sure they have their place (wet slippery roofs, extremely steep roofs, etc.). The actual touchy/feely is an important part of the roof inspection, IMO.

Maybe you can copyright it.

You should be getting a notice soon lol.

Looks like you are almost 10 feet up in the air Frank.Were you terrified ? :slight_smile:

A drone can’t check bonding, nailing, soft decking or felt paper placement. IMO there is no substitute for walking the roof if it can be done safely

Single story, 4/12, scarey stuff.

Frank, you look like Fred Ward’s long lost Brother in this Pic:D
