Are you looking for a roof surveying service for your old or damaged roof? Perhaps you just want surveyance done as part of your roof management schedule. However, is your roof awkward or dangerous to access, maybe even completely inaccessible?
Now, thanks to modern technology, we are able to survey these types of roofs using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones. Aerial drone roofing surveys might sound like a story from a science fiction novel, but in fact are become more and more common and even the preferred method for surveying roofs of both commercial and industrial buildings.

Why use drones?

UAV roof surveying allows us to access roof areas faster and thanks to the live high definition video feed, we can identify minor or major problems quicker than ever before, saving you time, money, and potential headaches in the process. Drone roof surveying is not only quicker than conventional roof surveying methods, it's also much safer for our workers because no one needs to climb onto your roof until the work needs to be carried out.
The drones we use for our aerial roof surveying are completely licenced for flying around built-up areas, allowing us to carry out surveys in South Wales; Neath Port Talbot, Bridgend, Swansea and Cardiff. Furthermore, we only use trained operators to control the drones, ensuring that entire process is completely safe.
Drone roof surveying allows us to inspect your roof at a lower cost with much lower risk and in some cases, thanks to the recorded high-definition video footage, we receive better information that can be review time and time again. The result is a much more detailed roofing survey than conventional methods.
More to the point, drone roof surveying is often the only method that can be used to inspect your roof. For example, if your roof has had damage done to it that would make it perilous for our workers to walk upon it. Or, as is often the case with older, listed buildings, it is completely inaccessible, obstructed or hidden, even with the use of ladders and scaffolding.
Our drone pilots and roofing surveyors work closely together to get the entire picture of your roof's structure and maintenance requirements. The drones themselves relay HD video footage, which can be assessed in detail from the safety of the ground and will perform well in adverse weather conditions such as rain and wind. Furthermore, the drones we use have been designed with aerial surveys in mind and can be accurately controlled to pinpoint any area on your roof’s surface, enabling us to carry out a comprehensive analysis.
