Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of a drone roof inspections?


Traditional inspection methods often include cherry pickers, scaffolding and ladders which not only can be an expensive route, also involve a large amount of risk assessment and planning to insure health and safety is not put at risk.

Our drone roof inspections reduce the cost of the roof inspection significantly, eliminate a wide range of health and safety issues (such as an individual falling) and vastly reduce the time it takes to inspect the condition of the roof or guttering. Our drones use high resolution cameras which allow us to capture images and video of damaged areas in extremely high detail.

What do you capture on an inspection?


Our roof inspections can capture the whole roof or specific areas depending on what you require. If you are aware of a specific area that is a concern, then do let us know so we can ensure we collect additional images. Areas such as guttering, chimneys and slipped roof tiles are often hotspots for damage during a storm so we do our best to provide a prompt and efficient service for every client. The images can then be passed onto a local tradesman with the confidence that you can see for yourself the repairs your roof may require.

What alternatives are there in areas where drones cannot be used?


Unfortunately drones are not practical tools to use everywhere, so we have developed a roof inspection pole system thats one of a kind (photographed above). Luke spent almost a year going back and forth with manufacturers and cad designers to perfect our roof inspection poles and they have been so popular that we now sell them at www.nextlevelpoles.co.uk. We have 11 meter and 15 meter options available which can carry a wifi enabled camera allowing full camera controls from the ground. Poles are often used for both external and internal roof inspections of sensitive or inaccessible areas.

What is the quality of the images or video?


Our drones are able to capture images of survey quality down to a GSD of 5.5px/cm when flown at 5m above the roof. This extreme level of detail allows you to zoom in and see cracked / fractured tiles and defects in chimney pointing with ease. When required we also have an 11m mast/pole system available (as pictured above) which carries a light weight 24mega pixel DSLR cameras with a 30x zoom, great for getting those angles which are not possible by drone and for interior inspections.

When can you do a drone roof inspection?


Drone roof inspections or drone roof surveys can be completed in any daylight hours providing the weather allows. We have wind limitations of around 15mph and our drones cant fly in heavy rain, however, as long as it's safe we can take off with minimal fuss. The time needed to complete a drone roof survey will vary depending on the size of the roof, however on average we would usually be on site for between 30 minutes and an hour; the drone being in the air typically between 5 and 20 minutes of this time.

For large commercial buildings this will understandably take longer but an estimate timescale will be discussed at time of enquiry.
