Our drones can reach difficult areas with ease, and our solution is quick, safe and very cost effective.What was one a difficult and expensive task to accomplish can now be achieved much more cost-effectively using our remotely piloted aerial drone systems. Building inspections of roofs, chimneys, towers, stadiums, wind turbines, church spires, etc., no longer need expensive cherry-pickers, scaffolding.
We can give you a series of high-resolution images and high definition 4K video of most hard to reach structures. You can even monitor the footage being gathered on our remote ground station screens in real-time to make sure you’re getting exactly the images you need. And there’s no longer the need for anyone to leave the ground so the project is obviously much safer.
Imagine the scene. There’s been a big storm and your property has extensive damage to the roof. It’s now your job to get the matter dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. In doing this you will ensure you’ll minimise the costs that can arise with this sort of claim.
When you have a damaged roof you need emergency drone inspection photography with a fast turnaround and a reliable service. Here at Skyhigh Drone Media Productions we have extensive experience in all types of aerial photography. We deal with roof surveys, drains, gutters and solar panels and much more.
Drone roof inspection services are ideal for inspecting any damage after a storm. We all know that the British weather is not the best throughout the year. Winters can often be cold, rainy and incredibly windy, which can lead to damage to roof tops, not to mention solar panels and church spires, for instance. With a drone inspection, you can quickly and efficiently inspect damage from a height. This means that the repair can be undertaken as quickly as possible. Read on to discover more about drone photography and why it is the best option for inspecting storm damage.
Drone roof inspection offers a number of different benefits when it comes to inspecting storm damage in particular. This includes the fact that it is a much safer approach. The alternative would be for an inspector to use ladders or scaffolding, which is always dangerous, especially when the weather is bad and structures may potentially be unsafe. The speed at which aerial roof inspections can be carried out is another benefit to consider. An inspection can be carried out quickly and typically completed in around an hour. It is also easy for such a service to be arranged on an urgent or ad hoc basis. Another advantage of using a drone is that it can reach places that are hard to access, providing a complete 360-degree view of the area. Drones will capture photographs from various angles, which traditional photography is not able to do in the same way.
Furthermore, this option has another point in its favour, and that’s that drone roof inspection cost is typically lower than the cost associated with walking boards and scaffolding being erected. Scaffolding hire costs money daily, not to mention the time of the person carrying out an inspection. Drone photography means you will only need to pay for scaffolding once the repair works are underway. Not only does this mean it will cost less in terms of the time it is being used for, but you can also have the scaffolding erected at the point of damage, rather than needing it around the entire building. The exact price for drone photography services depends on the company you use and the amount of time that is needed to carry out the work. The urgency of the job also plays a role as well. As mentioned, in most cases, an hour is more than sufficient to carry out an aerial inspection, but the company you use will be able to explain this to you in full detail.
One of the most important reasons for using drone photography at height is safety. Traditionally an individual or team would have to climb up to a damaged roof and take photographs or videos manually. This meant delays if it was too windy to make the climb or the risk of an individual falling.
Drone photography eliminates this risk. It is a safe method of inspection at height which can be carried out fast and without too much delay. We are licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority and we are covered by Public Liability Insurance.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the national independent watchdog for work-related health, safety and illness which acts in the public interest to reduce work-related death and serious injury across Great Britain’s workplaces.
According to them, (in their guide of Working at Height) roof work is high in risk and states one of the most common causes of serious workplace injury to be falling through roofs. This can occur on roofs of factories, warehouses, farm buildings and such when repair work of the roof is being carried out.
Roof inspections using drone photography can be carried out by appointment or as an emergency drone service. Our emergency service means we can get to your location quickly and we can edit and deliver the photographs and/or videos to you on location. You can even watch the inspection from our van in real-time.
Not only are the inspections faster, safer and can provide photographs of hard to reach locations they are also far cheaper than traditional methods such as cherry pickers and scaffolding.
