The true extent of storm damage can so often only be revealed ironically, the next time a storm hits.

High winds and heavy rain can lift up sections of roofing, rip off communication equipment and damage guttering. Heavy rain can cause drainage systems to become overwhelmed and overflow. All of this means that when a storm has passed through, it can be a savvy move to have your property checked over.

At Balmore Inspection Services, we provided roof inspection and survey work for various commercial properties across the central belt of Scotland who want to make sure that their premises have not been damaged by storms.

Scaffolding and other ‘at height; inspection methods are cumbersome, costly and take a long time to set up and pack away. They are also relatively unsafe. Not ideal if you are a hotel (for example) that does not want ugly scaffolding set up outside every time that a storm passes through.
