Roof Condition data
Nearmap Roof Condition produces a roof condition score that can help you assess whether a roof is fit to be insured, and given its current condition how it may be affected in case high winds, hail, or other catastrophic weather events occur.
Nearmap Roof Condition takes into account a multitude of factors that impact the roof before arriving at a condition score, and gives detailed data to make an informed decision about insuring the roof. Some of these factors are:
- Roof material
- Roof type
- Rusting or ponding
- Roof conditions such as temporary or permanent repairs, staining, etc
In case of multiple roofs, Nearmap Roof Condition uses the area of each roof as a basis for calculating a consolidated score . The score is a weighted average of the roof area, so larger areas are given more weight. You can browse through the raw CSV or JSON data, or the PDF to get a break down of the roofs' data.
NOTE: The score is only a guidance of the roof condition and might need to be corroborated with data from additional sources.
Using the roof condition score in conjunction with weather risk data for the area can assist insurers with assessing the overall risk for the roof. The roof condition score can be anywhere between 0 and 100 inclusive with the following classification. The table below explains the guidelines for roof labels.
