Using our drone for a fast, accurate, and affordable analysis.
Why use a drone for inspections ...
A UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) provides a quick and safe inspection, all being at a very low cost compared to traditional methods such as ladders and scaffolding. An average inspection can be completed within a few hours and all media transferred the following morning.
Examples of areas we currently use our drones to inspect and analyse ...
Commercial / residential buildings, churches / historical structures, environmental assessments, and ongoing progression shots.
Monitoring progression ...
Let our drone team help you monitor your ongoing projects. Producing aerial media at heights of up to 120 meters, meaning your progress has never been clearer to see! Media in the form of 20MP stills and 4K video (during the post-production process, branding requirements can be applied).

Stepped Flashing: With a yearly drone inspection, properties are better maintained. Here we can see the severe mortar damages around the flashing. Water is now accessing the cavity of the building. With this being a three-story block of flats this has been left unnoticed for years. Now potentially an expensive fix.
Roof Ventilation: Upon close inspection, we can see a blockage. Vents need to be regularly checked and maintained, otherwise their purpose of circulating fresh air into the loft space can become compromised. A risk of condensation and internal damages is now possible. Planning regular checks via a drone would have prevented this.
Valley: A common area to fail. This image shows mortar that has become loose and entered the valley, now obstructing water and filling the rainwater hopper. Excessive amounts of water may now be soaking into the roof. Titles may wear and the structural integrity of the property over time, may become compromised. A safety concern with falling debris should also be noted.
Ridge Tiles: Accessing these tiles is only possible with the use of scaffolding and ladders, expensive and time-consuming if no repairs are needed. With a drone, it is a 2hr job and a 1/4 of the price! Looking over the photo analysis we can see a dislodged end ridge tile. Future possibilities of water leaks and damp are now possible. A repair is needed. From this initial assessment, appropriate planning can now be performed to keep costs and project time to a minimum.
Need an efficient roof inspection, we can produce close detailed shots featuring the difficult out of reach areas, giving you peace of mind! After receiving your media you can easily assess your roof and check for wear or areas that may need attention.
"Drones overall will be more impactful than I think people recognize, in positive ways to help society." Bill Gates
Outlining the main key benefits to consider ...
SAFETY: Without scaffolding many areas that need assessing pose a high risk for the inspector.
SPEED: Time is money, scanning areas with a drone is up to ten times faster!
MANEUVERABILITY: Drones can easily access difficult, out of reach areas.
ENVIRONMENTAL: No pollution and no erosion.
