Drone Roof Surveys
When it comes to roof surveying, Aerial Drones equipped with high-resolution photographic sensors have been proven to be 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 to show any defects, broken tiles, chimney stacks, flashings, clogged gutters, wood work dammage 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 those hidden or completely inaccessible parts, monitoring the survey progress from the drone HD video feed and taking pictures along the way to evaluate the works to be carried out and provide detailed information to the client.
No job is too small or too big, we are operating roof surveys either on private residential, large warehouses and public buildings.
For vast areas, we use our photo mapping capabilities to cover the whole surface of the roof, delivering cm scale details regardless of the size of the building.
Key Points of Aerial Drone Roof Survey
- 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
- Immediately operational
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.
We will deliver all relevant visuals, photos and videos used for the survey, the 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.
Safety for people and property is paramount. Aerial drone surveys 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.
We hold a CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) Certification to visit and access building sites, and each survey comes with a full Risk Assessment and Method Statement. (RAMS)
RICS Roof Condition Report
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.
Roof Thermal Imagery
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 Reports
Inspectors and Surveyors looking at cataloguing damage or establishing accurate measurements of distances, pitch, slope, surfaces and volumes of a roof can require us to provide a fully detailed Roof Report (please see below), based on collected data during our dedicated flight over the premises.
Using our dedicated mapping process, taking hundreds of pictures of the roof, we can recreate roof plans when they are 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 below this complete roof measurement report we completed within 24 hours of the survey with this technology.
