UAV drone aerial roof inspection will allow you to survey all the hard to reach places at height using UAV Drone high resolution aerial photography and inspect your roof for:

      • the build up of moss on tiles and in guttering
      • damage after storms and extreme weather conditions
      • the state of previous repairs
      • high and hard to reach exterior and interior walls


    Don’t take your chances with any other method of height roof inspection

    Roof inspectionsAerial roof inspection prove to be challenging at the best of times. This is mainly because they are generally not designed to be walked on. Furthermore, most roofs are made of valleys and parapets which cannot be viewed from the ground. This creates major challenges for roof inspections, which in turn can create a risk to health and safety.

    Perhaps your only option to date was to build scaffolding, hire a cherry picker or a crane. In some cases you may have had no choice but to leave some areas of the roof unchecked due to limited accessibility. It also may be the case that your church grounds limit your options due to accessibility.

    This can result in damage and defects going unchecked, which in turn results in the greater risk of water ingress, rot, damp and insect infestation and ultimately a roof that’s unsafe.

    Save on expensive repair costs through regular inspection

    As with most things, the key is to be able to spot any issues or damage early so it can be repaired quickly. Otherwise there is the risk of serious damage resulting in long term and very expensive repairs, and in some cases a complete recovering of the roof. It is recommended that your church roof is inspected twice per year.
