Commercial drone roof survey Drones are faster, safer and more cost efficient when it comes to surveying at heights. These can also be called aerial surveys UAS (Unmanned Aerial System)

For roof inspections on commercial properties, drones are becoming more popular amongst the surveying companies, cutting down man hours and expensive costs with hiring out scissor lifts or scaffolding drones are becoming very beneficial.

Focusing on the safety factor, when you commission a drone survey you are eliminating any risks of falls to the people involved. Drones can be deployed rapidly which then allows the surveyor to look through the monitor to identify any defects such as cut edge corrosion or gutter defects on the roof. This data can then be either captured in 4k resolution video or 20mp photography still images to analyze further to be placed into a report.


Drones at construction sites Drones at construction sites are very beneficial to collect real time data about the project at hand, also a greater perspective of what is happening on site.

Drones have become a useful tool on construction sites for capturing the progress over time with aerial photography and aerial filming, this data can then be showcased through the marketing teams. Also, showcasing the ongoing project to potential buyers.

In the past contractors had to hire out helicopters or planes to take the aerial images this can have its downfalls with cost, quality, flexibility and time.

The drones aerial view will give the team a different and unique perspective, supervisors will then have a high resolution photograph or video of the site to go over any issues like site access issues, potential drainage problems, or any threats to health and safety. The supervisor can then communicate with the team about any site issues and resolve them.

It can be challenging to capture the same photos week by week with the same view location or altitude. Drones have solved this problem by repeating each flight with the same coordinates so the reports will always look consistant and true.


Drone commercial aerial photography Drones are becoming increasingly common in our skies, UAVs offer a wide range of filming and photography services for businesses and to the general public.

Hiring a qualified approved CAA drone pilot will ensure you get the job done correctly and safely, it will be more cost effective than using the old traditional manned aerial methods such as planes or helicopters.

In the pictures attached below, you will see that using drone aerial photography to showcase large commercial buildings is the only way possible to capture the entire site, also capturing unique angles along the way which are great for commercial brochures.


Drone church survey and inspection Recently was contacted to survey and inspect particular areas of a church roof as there were water leaks seeping in.

Using the traditional method of hiring out scaffolding or a scissor lift to identify the leaks turned out to be more expensive and time consuming, this particular drone church inspection was completed in 1 hour 30 minutes taking all the relevant imagery of the suspected leaking sites and sending them to the client to further analyze.

Below is a short version of the drone demonstration video also aerial photography of the leaking areas identified.

14-11-2019  Has demonstrated in the video below how easier and efficient a drone can be when surveying commercial properties.

Using drones to survey at heights is quicker, safer and more cost effective than the traditional method using scissor lifts or scaffolding.

Surveying large commercial properties and buildings used to be a time consuming and expensive exercise, also putting lives at risk. Now, most surveyors are turning to the use of drone technology to get the job done in a fraction of the time.

The roof or premises can be captured in 4k video or 20mp high resolution still photographs which can easily be inputted into a surveyors report.

Drone surveying

Using drones to survey and inspect at heights is very beneficial to your company.

Sometimes it’s impossible to gain access for a scissor lift. Instead, why not use a drone to survey and inspect at heights.

With a 20 megapixel camera fitted along with 1 inch sensor, my drones can produce very high quality images or video, which then can be put into a report to show any type of defect, if any, which cannot be seen from the ground or scissor lift.

By keeping surveyors and inspection officers on the ground and out of harm’s way, you can greatly reduce the risks and costs involved with elevated inspections.

Saving you money and time by getting the job done quicker, safer and more cost effective.
