Roof Inspection

Southern California may not see snowfall this winter, but rain and occasional storms still pose a threat — especially during an El Niño winter. That’s why you should initiate the winterization process now with a thorough inspection of your property’s roof, utilizing CAM’s Drone Inspection Service.

Our eye-in-the-sky technology can reveal signs of damage, loose shingles, water leaks and other issues. A thorough and professional roof inspection by our Property Pros can identify potential vulnerabilities and prevent more extensive damage from occurring during winter precipitation.

Stormwater Management

Proper drainage is crucial to prevent water damage to your property, especially during the winter months. CAM’s Property Pros will clean out gutters and downspouts, removing any debris that may have accumulated over the year. This can help ensure that stormwater is directed away from your building, preventing potential flooding or damage to the foundation.

CAM can help commercial property owners with compliance, design, and construction to overcome potential penalties and permitting issues. We also perform stormwater inspections and certification for municipalities by conducting regular inspections of their equipment.

Irrigation Systems
