Cheap, Fast, Safe

We are based in London and specialists in drone roof surveys. We have operated hundreds of roof surveys by drones for surveyors, property managers, estate agents and new home buyers. We focus on condition of the roof and its features, delivering a targeted RICS independent Surveyor report for the purpose of the survey.

  • Have you got roof leaks or water ingress?

  • Do you need to assess the condition of the roof?

  • Do you need a independent report for your insurance?

Whether you need imagery of your roof to estimate repairs, proceed to measurements or for simple control of its condition, we will be able to answer to your demands with a fast turnover, a highly professional result, always at the right price. Roof surveys by drone are now in high demand.  Our Camera drones are equipped with high-resolution photographic sensors making roof surveys faster, easier to operate, and safer than manned conducted surveys.

We take as many as necessary high-resolution overlapping close-up pictures of the roof, allowing a comprehensive survey of the condition of the roof, including damaged or missing tiles, chimney stacks, flashings, gutters, roof lights, dormers, outlets as well as heights of masonry where requested.

No more need for ladders and costly cherry pickers or scaffolding, In total safety from the ground, we can assess any area of the roof, even hidden or completely inaccessible parts, monitoring on a screen the survey progress from the drone HD video feed, and taking pictures along the way to estimate the works to be carried out. The client can also see "live" the pictures taken directly on the control monitor.

Our RICS Chartered Surveyor delivers a full advisory condition report, with schedule of works and preliminary quote. ( Optional, please call us for details.)

We won't miss any detail

​​​Our drone cameras can zoom in 30X and reveal any defect in the asset we're inspecting. We have completed many drone roof surveys in London and UK for surveyors, property management companies, new home buyers and roofing companies. No job is too small or too big, we are operating drone roof inspections either on private residential, large estates, warehouses and public buildings. For larger areas, we can map the whole surface of the roof, delivering cm scale photographic details regardless of the size of the building.

Safety for people and property is paramount. Aerial roof surveys and inspections by drone can only be operated by a CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) certified and authorized drone operator, to comply with legal regulations regarding the use of unmanned aircraft for commercial operations in the UK Airspace. Camfly Films Ltd is CAA certified since 2014, ID754 and fully insured with liability to up to 5M, and more if necessary.

Camfly Films Ltd holds an OSC Operational Authorisation to fly our high end professional drones at 10 meters from uninvolved people, properties, vehicles, vessels and structures, in central London and all congested areas.

Roof Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging is the ideal way to spot heat loss and lack of insulation in a residential or industrial building. Changing colours indicate different temperature zones and help to take a course of action to correct the problem. Draft, lack of insulation, structure damage...

Thermal Camera Drone

Our drone, equipped with dual visual and thermal cameras, is the perfect tool to conduct a complete non-intrusive roof and building inspection, not only spotting defects in the surveyed zone, but also detecting areas of heat loss or gain, impossible to materialise by other ways.

Key points of roof aerial thermal assessment:

  • Finding air leakage and locate areas of heat loss or gain

  • Accurately detect and locate air leakage

  • Accurately detect and locate areas of missing or damaged insulation.

Roof Measurement Report from Aerial Photography mapping

Roofers, Inspectors and Surveyors looking at cataloguing damage or establishing accurate measurements of distances, pitch, slope, surfaces of a roof can require us to provide a fully detailed Roof Report based on collected data during our scanning flight over the property.

Using our dedicated mapping process, taking hundreds of pictures of the roof, we can recreate roof plans when they are lost or missing with 99.4% accuracy in the measurements. Our cloud generated reports, available within a few hours, can be used for many purposes, for instance in a project of tiles replacement, for insurance purpose or solar panels installation. 

Please see this roof measurement report we completed within 24 hours of the survey with this technology.
