Aerial surveys & inspections

Aerial survey isn't a new technology, but in the past it has mostly been carried out by expensive manned aircraft with all the associated limitations. Who, for instance, could imagine hiring a helicopter to inspect the lead flashing on the roof of your apartment block. If nothing else, the neighbours and authorities might have something to say about the noise, disturbance and risks.

A drone, on the other hand, can literally go where no aircraft has gone before and film or photograph in much greater detail, as the images on this page show. Drones are much more cost effective than any of the alternatives, scaffolding, lift platforms, towers etc., and also a lot quicker and safer. The disturbance element is also considerably less using a modern sophisticated camera drone, with the average detailed survey taking less than two hours with virtually no noise or inconvenience.

The homeowners had reported a leak, but had no idea where it was. The roofing company had refused to inspect the roof without scaffolding. It took only one pass for the drone to spot where the seals had failed. We were able to inform the customer immediately and provide the high resolution photos to the contractors the same day.
