Spot issues with your commercial roof before the winter storms with a pre-winter drone inspection

At Balmore, we can provide roof surveys for commercial and industrial premises as part of a pre-winter roofing inspection that can spot issues early so that you can act to fix them now before they develop into more serious problems that can cost more to repair and creation potentially harmful operation downtime for your production and manufacturing capabilities.

We are an award winning, Glasgow based drone survey and inspection provider. From our headquarters in Glasgow, we cover all of Scotland and the North of England, providing one of the most comprehensive aerial roof inspection services available. Our roof inspections include everything from video and photography to thermal imaging, 3D modelling and more.

Advantages of aerial roof inspections using Drone Surveys

Thermal Imaging

With thermal imaging drone inspections we can highlight areas of your roof that have become weak and are leaking thermal heat energy.

With our drone roof surveys, we can make your building more thermally efficient, reducing your monthly and yearly energy bills.

Thermal imaging can capture all sorts of unseen and invisible issues on a roof and building structure that the human eye cannot see.

These can include

What are the benefits of drone roof inspections?

With roof surveys conducted by UAV drones, the benefits are significant. Range from overall cost savings to speed of delivery and enhanced quality of service. Traditional methods of roof inspection required specialist workers conducting inspections ‘at height’. This process was not just unreliable but also put human life at risk. Roofing inspectors were relying on the human eye to spot any issues with the roof. These inspections would be conducted with access gained by costly scaffolding or cherry pickers. By using aerial drones to conduct roof inspections, you immediately see a cost saving because you do not need scaffolding to access the roof. There is the safety benefit of using drones as you do not need an inspection team working ‘at height’ and a drone roof inspection can take hundreds, it not thousands of images of a roof from multiple angles and distances (which a conventional roofing inspector cannot do) to properly inspect and points of interest.

This is the main benefits of using aerial drones for roof surveys; the detailed reporting. Drones can access multiple points of a roof and building structure, capturing detailed images, video and thermal imaging of points of interest. These images can be GPS tagged so that we can archive and compare images with previous images, taken from the exact same points to compare roofing issues over a time span. This range of detailed reporting is something that is simply not possible with conventional methods.

And the final benefit is time saving. A survey of your roof (both commercial and residential) can be carried out quickly and effortlessly as drones can fly in the exact same weather conditions that conventional scaffolding access teams would work in. But we do not need days to set up scaffolding or hours walking up and down flat roofing of industrial warehouse roofing looking for problems.

Our inspection surveys are provided digitally with fully documented video and imagery that can provide a detailed survey report of your roof and its current state. This data can be passed on to specialists, architects, building inspectors, roof repair companies and more.

As a multiple Award Winning drone service provider, we can provide high quality and fully detailed drone roof surveys for your needs whilst offering real cost savings over conventional inspection methods at a service level far higher than you will have experienced before.
