Key Benefits of Drone Surveys

Safety: Certain areas of a building, such as rooftops or high floors, may be difficult or hazardous to access manually. Using a drone for surveying can help avoid the potential risk of injury or other accidents that could arise from attempting to access these areas.

Detailed Inspection: Drones can capture high-resolution images and video that can provide a detailed inspection of the building’s exterior and interior, which can be particularly helpful for identifying issues that are difficult to see or access from the ground.

Accessible Data Collection: A drone survey can collect data from hard-to-reach areas, such as the tops of chimneys or the undersides of bridges, providing more complete and accurate information than would be possible with traditional surveying methods.

Efficiency: Drone surveys can be conducted quickly and efficiently, reducing the time and resources needed for a traditional survey. This can be particularly helpful when surveying areas that are difficult to access, as it can save time and reduce the risk of delays or complications.

Minimal Disruption: Our drone is small – under 250g! It is non-invasive and you will hardly notice it is even there. 

No expensive scaffolding / cherry pickers: Traditional means of access would involve scaffolding / towers or cherry pickers which can prove extremely costs and often disproportionate for the reason for the survey. Thankfully there is no need for any temporary access with our drone surveys. 

Environmentally Friendly: Drones create minimal carbon emissions running on electricity and are far better for the planet than trucks that may be involved with more intrusive and expensive temporary access systems.

Roof & High-Level Camera Surveys

In some instances, the use of a Drone is not feasible or appropriate (e.g. in high risk ‘no fly zones’, say close to airports). In these situations, our team utilise a telescopic inspection camera which reaches 10m, allowing close examination and inspection for roofs and hard-to-reach areas for most domestic properties and buildings under four storeys.  

The Telescopic Roof Inspection Camera is a cutting-edge tool that has been an incredible asset to our surveying team. With its extendable pole and high-quality zoom camera, it enables us to capture stunning images and videos with ease. The built-in Wi-Fi network allows us to view live images in real-time, streamlining the inspection process and providing you with a comprehensive view of the roof from a safe distance. Whether you need to inspect hard-to-reach areas or monitor the progress of a roofing project, this camera offers a convenient and efficient solution.

The equipment enables us to provide a cost-effective and advanced solution for capturing high-quality survey footage. Its ease of operation and transportation make it an ideal piece of kit for our team, eliminating the need for additional personnel or cumbersome equipment such as ladders, scaffolds, or cherry pickers. The telescopic pole can reach heights up to 10 meters, and the high-definition camera features a powerful zoom function, enabling a comprehensive survey without the need for towers or scaffolding. This equipment provides a practical and efficient way to inspect roofs, even in areas where traditional methods are not accessible.
