There was a time when, if you wanted to know what condition your properties roof was in you had two choices.
Get a set of ladders and go up there yourself or trust a roofer to tell you.
Thanks to modern technology, there is now a third way that is far quicker, more reliable, safer and with potential real cost savings.
Drone Surveys for Roof Inspection
UAV / Aerial Drones can be used for aerial inspection of your residential or commercial properties roof and its current condition.
Balmore Aerial Services is a Glasgow based aerial drone firm that provides class leading aerial inspection and drone survey services for commercial and residential customers across Scotland and the North of England.
Our drone surveys can provide:
- roofing inspection
- building inspection
- historic building inspection
- bridge inspection
- traffic surveys
- construction site surveys
What does our drone service include?
If you want to know the current condition of your roof then when you call on Balmore, you get access to our fleet of aerial drones, equipped with the latest in 4K HD image capturing and video capturing technology along with Thermal Imaging cameras. It means that we can quickly and easily conduct a survey inspection of your properties roof and report back to you in real time if there are any issues. With the 4K camera, we can capture in great detail areas of your roof that would be either too difficult to access or too dangerous and it can all be recorded in high definition to be reviewed as often as you would like.
With our thermal imaging technology, we can go beyond simply supplying pictures and videos. We can go deeper.
With thermal imaging, we can analyse where there is any heat loss and water leak/access that the naked eye simply can’t see. It is these potential issues that when caught early, can save you thousand in potential roof damage costs in the future.
The significant benefits in using aerial drones to conduct roof condition surveys and inspections are why they are becoming so popular for both commercial and residential application. As a fast and cost effective way of surveying a roof, you can view visible evidence of its current state. No longer do you have to rely on the word of the roofer who popped up the ladders to have a look around. Our drone surveys can provide complete coverage of your properties roofing, chimneys and drainage.
Examples of when a drone roof inspection is of benefit
There are many buildings across Scotland and the North of England that require surveys to be conducted on a regular basis. With our drone services, we can provide scheduled inspections of your property that can satisfy insurance policies and because all of our data is archived in our award winning cloud software, we can review, compare and analyse GPS location overlay of positions on your roof to see what is being affected over a long period of time. This incredible detail can truly help you to identify problems early (far earlier than the naked eye) and address them before they become expensive repair jobs.
Examples of regular roofing and chimney surveys include:
- Flare Stacks
- Factory Chimneys
- Transportation Bridges
- Factory Warehouse Roofing
- Listed Buildings
- Historic Buildings
