What We Do?

Drone Roof Inspections

Unlock the future of roof inspections where safety meets precision. Leveraging cutting-edge drone technology, we provide comprehensive roof inspection services that ensure the integrity of your roofing system while enhancing safety and efficiency. Ideal for property managers and commercial clients, our services are designed to identify potential issues before they become costly repairs.

Why Choose Drone Roof Inspections?

Safety First: Traditional roof inspections often involve risky climbs and potential hazards. Our drone inspections eliminate the need for physical presence on the roof, reducing risk and ensuring safety for inspectors and your property.

High-Resolution Imaging: Our drones are equipped with high-definition cameras that capture detailed images and videos. This allows for thorough analysis of your roof's condition, including hard-to-reach areas which may not be covered in standard inspections.

Cost-Effective: Drone inspections can be a smart and cost-effective solution compared to traditional methods. They significantly reduce the time spent on roof and minimise the need for scaffolding or other expensive equipment, making them a wise choice for your property.

Preventative Maintenance: Regular drone inspections help detect minor issues before they cause property damage, saving you time and money in the long run.

A drone roof inspection uses unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) equipped with cameras to survey and analyze the condition of a roof. This method provides a safe, efficient, and cost-effective way to assess roofing systems, capturing high-resolution images and data without the need for direct human contact with the roof surface.

The duration of a drone roof inspection depends on the size and complexity of the roof. Typically, most roof inspections can be completed within 30 minutes to an hour. Large commercial properties might take longer due to their size and the detailed analysis required.

Yes, drone roof inspections are very safe. They eliminate the need for inspectors to physically access the roof, which reduces the risk of falls and injuries. Our drone operators are fully trained and certified, and we comply with all local aviation and safety regulations.

Drone inspections can identify a variety of roof issues, including but not limited to:

  • Cracked or missing tiles
  • Pooled water areas
  • Blocked or overflowing gutters
  • Rusted sheets

Drones are versatile and can inspect most types of roofs, including flat, sloped, shingled, metal, and tile roofs. However, there may be some limitations based on specific local regulations.

If our drone inspection identifies potential issues, the findings will be documented in a detailed report with annotated images pointing out the specific areas of concern. We also provide recommendations for repairs or further professional evaluation if needed.

While it is not necessary for you to be present during the inspection, we recommend that you be on-site to discuss any problems you may have with your roof and to review any questions or concerns.

The cost of a drone roof inspection varies depending on the size of the roof and the specific requirements of the inspection. Please contact us for a detailed quote based on your property's characteristics.
