What is a drone roof inspection?

A drone roof inspection is exactly as it sounds. We use advanced commercial grade aerial drones equipped with the latest in Photographic and Video Cameras as well as thermal imaging camera technology to capture a properties roof in incredible detail.

A standard roof inspection can be carried out in a fraction of the time compared to conventional inspection methods yet a simply fly over with one of our drones can take hundreds of photos and scans. This allows us to conduct roof inspections with incredible detail and accuracy. Spotting issues with roofing that the naked eye simply can’t see, and from vantage points that are simply not possible any other way.

What can thermal imaging see that the human eye can’t?

Thermal imaging can capture all sorts of unseen and invisible issues on a roof and building structure that the human eye cannot see.

These can include

  • Thermal bridging
  • Heat loss
  • Water ingress
  • Roof leaks
  • Missing insulation
  • Damp
  • Leaking pipes
  • and more….

With thermal imaging we can highlight areas of your roof that have become weak and are leaking thermal heat energy.

With our drone roof surveys, we can make your building more thermally efficient, reducing your monthly and yearly energy bills.

What are the benefits of drone roof inspections?

With roof surveys conducted by UAV drones, the benefits are significant. Range from overall cost savings to speed of delivery and enhanced quality of service. Traditional methods of roof inspection required specialist workers conducting inspections ‘at height’. This process was not just unreliable but also put human life at risk. Roofing inspectors were relying on the human eye to spot any issues with the roof. These inspections would be conducted with access gained by costly scaffolding or cherry pickers. By using aerial drones to conduct roof inspections, you immediately see a cost saving because you do not need scaffolding to access the roof. There is the safety benefit of using drones as you do not need an inspection team working ‘at height’ and a drone roof inspection can take hundreds, it not thousands of images of a roof from multiple angles and distances (which a conventional roofing inspector cannot do) to properly inspect and points of interest.

This is the main benefits of using aerial drones for roof surveys; the detailed reporting. Drones can access multiple points of a roof and building structure, capturing detailed images, video and thermal imaging of points of interest. These images can be GPS tagged so that we can archive and compare images with previous images, taken from the exact same points to compare roofing issues over a time span. This range of detailed reporting is something that is simply not possible with conventional methods.

And the final benefit is time saving. A survey of your roof (both commercial and residential) can be carried out quickly and effortlessly as drones can fly in the exact same weather conditions that conventional scaffolding access teams would work in. But we do not need days to set up scaffolding or hours walking up and down flat roofing of industrial warehouse roofing looking for problems.

Our inspection surveys are provided digitally with fully documented video and imagery that can provide a detailed survey report of your roof and its current state. This data can be passed on to specialists, architects, building inspectors, roof repair companies and more.
