Innovation Meets Roofing With Kespry

Menlo Park, California-based Kespry, a drone-based aerial intelligence solution provider, announced a few new capabilities: (1) on-site processing of drone-captured roof inspection data, (2) a Virtual Test Square (VTS) to support claims decision-making in minutes, and (3) enhanced automated hail detection, driven by machine learning.


“For insurance carriers and their clients, the faster an accurate roof damage assessment can happen, the better. Touchless claims will rapidly become the industry standard . Until now, they’ve been forced to rely on slow and dangerous manual assessments or earlier-generation drone inspections that can take hours to process. Kespry’s ability to enable insurance carriers to make claims decisions in as little as an hour and provide more accurate automated damage detection will dramatically lower the cost of claims processes and improve customer satisfaction” – Kespry CEO and Chairman, George Mathew.


Worth Noting:

  • Claims adjusters or roof inspectors can view detailed imagery and data on the state of a roof within minutes of a 5-10-minute drone flight directly on the same iPad used to plan their autonomous Kespry flight.
  • Adjusters can generate virtual test squares from their roof inspection data and tag damage directly on their iPad before generating a claims-ready report. Previously, the adjuster or inspector had to climb the roof, manually mark the damage with chalk, and then apply a 10×10 inspection square.
  • Kespry’s automated hail-damage detection capabilities provide hail damage analysis of residential homes, multi-family dwellings and commercial buildings.
