Safely working at height

Apart from the ease and amazing technology one of the biggest advantages of choosing a drone to do roof surveys is the safety. Traditionally a competent roofer would need to erect ladders and scale the building to assess the roof whilst taking photos manually and making notes. Strong winds or bad weather could easily make this dangerous and the risk of falling increases.

Drone Surveying completely eliminates this risk it is a recognised safe method of working at height which can now be carried out quickly with very little delays.


Professional Drone Roof Inspection

Drone aerial surveys are the ideal choice when inspecting roof areas or chimneys using the latest in Drone technology and UAV mounted cameras the resolution and quality are second to none high-quality sensors provide detail that is not comparable to standard photography or video. Using the drones can also make it a breeze to reach those hard to reach areas and awkward angles that would ordinarily be too difficult via ladder or scaffolding.

All inspections are carried out using 4k high-resolution video and photography along with the fully insured and a trained pilot. What sets Roofpro apart from a standard drone survey company is that your inspection is then reviewed by a professional roofer with over 30 years experience.

Roof Inspection via Drone Dublin

The use of drones for reporting purposes is growing in popularity & roof repairs. The benefits of using a drone to undertake roof surveys versus more traditional methods is clear.

The cost of scaffolding to undertake roof surveys can often be restrictive and the perspective provided limited. Hydraulic platforms offer a good point of view but when considering the requirement for an operator and a further industry expert the costs can become high.

A drone survey can allow a single operator to gather a significant amount of information using high definition imagery and video which can easily be relayed to a number of industry experts for their opinions on work that may be required.

It is important to consider the law when operating drones and always ensure the is registered to undertake a specific flight.

When used for commercial operation a trained operator must be engaged and the equipment used in accordance with The Air Navigation Order 2016.

At Roofpro, our drone surveys are carried out by trained pilots who have permission to operate commercially. Permission for Commercial Operations PfCO. For reference, our operators reference is 5438.

The use of drones has a number of benefits versus more traditional methods. From a Health and Safety perspective using drones to carry out Remote Visual Inspections can eliminate the need for Working at Height.

Further, the imagery that can be gathered by drones is often superior to a human due to its ability to get close to hard to reach areas. Once this information is gathered experts in the relevant fields can use the information and allocate resources appropriately.

Moreover, when considering the environment the use of drones can be advantageous. Traditional access methods rely heavily on transportation from larger fuel inefficient vehicles such as trucks to carry scaffolding or hydraulic platforms. A drone can be deployed to survey your roof in a small fuel efficient vehicle with less resources versus other methods.

It is not just the roofing or construction industry that can benefit from the use of Drones, a study by The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee outlines the benefits.
