Winter is here and with winter comes ever changing weather conditions.
Ice build up, thawing, refreezing, high winds and lots of rain. All of this can damage buildings structures and roofing and all too often, this damage remains unseen until it becomes a very expensive problem.
Existing methods of inspection including scaffolding and elevated platforms can be expensive so for many businesses in Scotland, the crucial need for regular building inspection and roofing inspection is ignored. A drone survey can spot developing issues quickly and highlight problems that are invisible to the naked eye before they become expensive repair bills. And all at a lot lower cost than conventional methods of inspection.
A single drone survey inspection of a commercial property can be carried out by one of our fully qualified drone pilots and the images, video and thermal imaging can quickly be processed using our award winning inspection software to spot any issues that have until now gone un-noticed. Drone inspections for a roof survey can spot faulty slates and tiles, problems with flat roofs, chimney damage, blocked gutters….the list goes on. With thermal imaging, we can even check the thermal efficiency of your property and highlight vulnerable points where you are loosing substantial heat. This in itself can lead to huge cost savings on your monthly energy bills. Especially now that energy prices have become so high.
What can thermal imaging see that the human eye can’t?
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
- Thermal bridging
- Heat loss
- Water ingress
- Roof leaks
- Missing insulation
- Leaking pipes
- and more….
Advantages of aerial roof inspections using Drone Surveys

- Roof inspection data can be supplied and passed on to roofing & building maintenance experts
- Roof inspection data can be archived and ‘monitored’ for damage, corrosion and other issues with your roofing
- Aerial roof inspections can cover multiple roofs, angles and heights in one flight
- Using drone surveys does not put human life at risk working at height
- Aerial roof inspections can be conducted in built up areas with no need for scaffolding, permits or road closures (for certain roof/building types)
