These are the three sets of images that will be uploaded to the same bucket.
1. Ground Level Front of Property in Frame - 1 Image
100% of the property in frame from the front capturing the entire front side of the house.
2. Ground Level Address of Property - 1 Image
Close up of the address number, (house number, a mailbox number, curbside number, etc.).
3. Roof Images: Close-ups on Roof Sides from the Air - 10-16 Images
Fly about 10-15 ft from the roof to obtain close up shots on all parts of the roof. Ideally, we want to get 2-3 images per face within 10-15 ft. The next shot as the context is supposed to be the entire face. The close-ups embody the face in 2-3 shots.
Take these images at a 45° angle.
4. Roof Images: Context Overview of Roof Sides From The Air - 2-3 Images per Facet
The objective of this shot is to capture entire facets with a 45º angle. Take 2-3 close-up shots per facet, so the inspector can view the entire face and have more context and detail across the board.
5. Miscellaneous: Roof Caps, Gutters, Chimneys, Roof Appurtenances
Since this is an insurance claim, we need to gather as much data as possible for the adjusters. It is essential to make sure that you have detailed images of the chimneys, roof appurtenances, gutters and caps.
6. Shingle Thickness Shot - 1 image
This shows the adjuster how many layers of the roof are in tact. This can be uploaded in the miscellaneous shot bucket.
7. Ground Imagery – See MindFlash for examples
- Other collateral damage on property if present:
These are areas not part of main property including:
- A/C unit - close up view (1 straight down, one angled)
- Overview of entire deck and one close up (straight down)
- Fence overview and one close up
- Outbuilding - shed, storage unit, etc.
- Personal property including benches, bbq, swing set, etc.
- Wall/Side Corner Images: Overview at Ground Level (1 image per corner).
- Take an image facing each corner of the house starting from front & right corner, and then move to right & rear corner, left & rear corner, and left & front corner. Please do this moving counterclockwise around home (left to right)
- Try to get both sides, with corner in the middle of the frame.
- Wall/Side Back Corner Images (back against rear corners looking out toward back yard) (2 photos, 1 from Right-Rear corner and 1 from Left-Rear corner).
- Wall/Side Images: Context Overview shot of each side/wall of home from eye level (1 image per side)
- Just like the Risk photo, we want to see a high level image of each entire major side/wall of the home (just 1 photo for each side, usually 10 ft away and 1 photo looking down the side). Adjust angle if necessary.
- Please do this moving counterclockwise around home (left to right).
- This provides the adjuster context of the wall/side for reference
- No duplicates.
- Wall/Side Images: Transition Overview shot of each side/wall of home from eye level (1-2 photos per side)
- Regardless of if you've acquired an overview shot, take a close photo(s) of items like siding, windows, gutters, downspouts, garage doors, etc., whether anomalies are present or not. This can be done from about 3-5 ft away.
- Please do this moving counterclockwise around home (left to right)
- Do this for each side of home.
- Wall/Side Images: Close-Up Overview shots of each side/wall of home from eye level (1-2 photos per side)
- After you take your transition photo of a wall/side, we find it easier to immediately get an even closer picture of those images. This should be done 1-2 ft away.
- Take photos of soft targets (gutters, screens, downspouts, paint, siding, windows, doors, lights, shutters).
- If you see damage, focus in even more.
- No duplicates.
