Drone roof inspections can save time and money
Posted on 30th April 2019 at 13:27
Traditional methods of inspecting a roof using a lift, tower or scaffolding can be time-consuming and expensive. But using a drone to take high-definition, detailed photographic images and video can be much cheaper and more effective.
If you have a damaged roof, work often starts with finding out the extent of the damage and getting quotes for repairs. And if the roof is high, or maybe not easily accessible, there can be significant costs incurred before you even start on repairs.
But using one of our drones to take photographs and video of the roof can be a much quicker and easier way to manage the problem. Once the drone is airborne, we can instantly see pictures of the roof, beamed directly from the drone to our ground-based operator. Capturing the right pictures or video is then simply a matter of using the on-board drone camera to get all the information you need. These pictures can then be shared with contractors to assess the work and get you the best roof repair quote.
