Building & Roof Inspections

Building and roof inspection can be a difficult task; finding the balance between delivering the highest quality survey results and reducing the risks of working at height to surveyors and the general public can prove to be problematic.

At Dronetec UK our building and roof inspections are delivered using our state-of-the art UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) which offer our clients a cost effective, high quality solution that eliminates the risk of working at height associated with traditional means of survey access.

According to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Hierarchy of Control Measures, the use of UAVs avoid work at height and its attendant risk. It is the safest method of delivering high-level roof and building surveys. It is fast becoming the industry standard as more and more people realise the benefits of utilising this powerful new technology.

Dronetec UK UAVs offer significant cost savings when compared with traditional methods of access when undertaking condition surveys on all types of commercial, industrial, residential and historic buildings.

Our entire fleet of drones carry top of the line DSLR cameras which capture every building element and defect in 24MP (which enables lossless magnification). All the raw data collected onsite is then processed to embed GPS location data for accurate defect mapping. Our UAVs also carry the latest FLIR thermographic cameras to undertake thermal imaging which is able to pinpoint various problem areas with a high degree of accuracy: moisture entrapment, delamination, water ingress points, insulation failures and concealed defects.

Dronetec UK will tailor each survey or inspection to our clients needs. In many cases we carry out condition surveys to identify defects before they deteriorate to the point where major works are required, thereby informing maintenance schedules and reducing capital expenditure costs.

Set up on site is simple requiring only our 2 man team and a UAV, completely eliminating some of the usual costs associated with alternative access.

UAVs also dramatically reduce the time required to complete the survey. An experienced, qualified pilot can capture thousands of images in just a few hours.

This not only allows for sites to remain open with minimal disturbance to working operations and ensuring public use is uninhibited, but significantly reduces costs.
