Certified Roof Inspector
Thomas Ailstock with Blue Bear Home Inspection of Tallahassee is certified to inspect roof systems.
The best roof inspection begins from the ground. The inspector will walk the perimeter of the home and locate and inspect downspouts, gutters, and observe for adequate site drainage. While on the ground he will note any missing or damaged flashing or roof covering material.
Eye in the Sky
If the roof is deemed unsafe-to-walk, the inspector will fly an unmanned aircraft over the roof and roof systems to thoroughly inspect the many systems and components which are difficult to see from the ground or ladder alone.

Certified sUAS Remote Pilot
Obtaining a remote pilot license, training, and maintaining a safe-to-fly aircraft are all necessary in order to provide clients with the best inspection service possible. Gone are the days of deferring to outside vendors to inspect this difficult to reach portion of the home. When others say no, we say yes. Blue Bear inspectors can reach portions of your home where others cannot.
Sometimes a roof is too dangerous to inspect from above without specialized climbing equipment and training. This can limit some inspectors. Rather than defer this portion of the inspection to others, we will inspect it entirely which can save you time and money on inspection costs and ensure that all recommendations are non-biased.
The best roof inspection is performed inside of the attic, but a visual inspection of the roofing material, flashing, penetrations, skylights, and chimney(s) should begin above the home. A damaged flashing or single nail pop can cause a leak inside of the home. Blue Bear inspectors inspect the roof top for defects before we inspect the roof deck from the attic to decrease the chances that any defects are missed.
Thomas Ailstock of Blue Bear Home Inspection is certified by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors and the State of Florida to perform roof inspections.
