Drone Roof Inspections

Drone Roof Inspection / Survey

Drones have many uses for residential and commercial customers.  From high roof inspections, wide flat roofs or guttering, a high-resolution map of the roof can be created. The map can zoom into great detail and be examined later. Current Aerial imaging cameras produce high-resolution images and 4K video.

These aerial images are stitched together to create a custom map of an area or object. 

Drone Inspection advantages:

  • Cost effective versus traditional inspection methods
  • Speed of survey
  • Access terraced or locked in buildings easily
  • Reduced risk to the roof itself from ladders and machinery
  • Reduces the need for expensive scaffolding or cherry pickers until confirmed necessary
  • Reducing the risk of injury and the need for dangerous working conditions such as working at heights
  • Assist with insurance claims
  • Listed building inspection criteria and compliance

drone roof inspectionIn the case of older houses or period homes, ladders or cherry-pickers often are not an option. In built-up areas, this can be even more of a challenge. From terraced houses and commercial properties that are locked in on both sides, this makes inspection time-consuming and costly.

Roofs are dangerous and hazardous, and working at height is always challenging. Ensuring workers safety is paramount, drones can reduce this risk and keep employees safe.

Drone inspections are ideal for asbestos roofs. No weight is being placed on the roof, so there is no risk of the asbestos tiles breaking. We can survey the roof and provide the footage so the roof is preserved and can be treated effectively.

If you need an inspection, we will be happy to assist. We will discuss the brief with you or if you have engaged a surveyor, work with them, and give you the results and evidence you need.
