Clemson, SC - Dec. 4, 2020 - The use of drones in construction is absolutely skyrocketing. Also known as UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), drones are helping contractors with efficiency, productivity, safety, and quality assurance. Daniel Riccomini, owner of American Commercial Roofing started out hiring someone with a drone to come to his job sites. After seeing the benefits it offered, he decided to purchase his own to use on a more routine basis. Daniel shares, “I use it for pre- and post-construction and since I can’t be in two places at one time, with the drone, now I can.” While Daniel can be working on one job, the drone can be gathering information in real-time on another. Daniel also uses it to measure roofs which can be done in a matter of minutes, allowing him to get a quote out faster than if he were physically climbing on the roof and taking measurements and with the added advantage of being able to be on another job at the same time.
