We are based in London and specialists in drone roof survey. Our Camera drones are equipped with high-resolution photographic sensors making roof surveys faster, easier to operate, and safer than manned conducted surveys.
No more need for ladders and scaffolding, our aerial drones are taking off from within the property, gathering as many as necessary high-resolution pictures of the roof, featuring close-ups of any defects on tiles, chimney stacks, flashings, gutters, wood work, and even insulation problems, thanks to our Thermal camera drone.
In total safety from the ground, we can assess any area of the roof, even hidden or completely inaccessible parts, monitoring on a tablet the survey progress from the drone HD video feed, and taking pictures along the way to evaluate the works to be carried out. The client can also see "live" the pictures taken direcly on the control monitor.
Key Points of Aerial Drone Roof Survey
High Resolution Photos and 4K Video.
Our drones are equipped with high resolution sensors delivering 20MP Raw and Jpeg stills, and 4K Ultra HD Video.
For every drone roof survey, we will deliver all relevant visuals, photos and videos used for the survey, orthophotography reconstruction and mapping in jpeg, tiff, pdf, or photoshop formats.
4K Videos can be edited to your convenience and downscaled if necessary to suit any computer performance.
Drones and Safety
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.
Construction Skills Certification scheme
We hold a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) Certification to access and visit building sites, and each drone survey comes with a full Risk Assessment and Method Statement. (RAMS)

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
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.
Full access to all areas of the roof, even damaged, inaccessible or presenting health hazards.
Thermal inspection to diagnose insulation problems.
No scaffolding and ladders required
Lower costs, lower risks for the personnel involved in the survey
For home buyers or any commercial, technical and insurance purpose, CamFly Films Ltd partners with RICS Chartered Surveyors to establish full Roof Condition Reports
including advice on repairs and maintenance.

Drone Roof Survey London and UK
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 warehouses and public buildings.For vast areas, we can map the whole surface of the roof, delivering cm scale photographic details regardless of the size of the building.
