State of the Union, 2017

- . If a roof is not safe to walk, we’ll still inspect it the way that we always have; from multiple ladder settings at the eaves. Drone inspections will simply be a service that we offer to help make sure that we’re staying at the top of our game.

Every once in a while, we get calls from frustrated homeowners who are hoping to have us come out to solve a mysterious odor in their home.
