From small to large roof inspection and recording - Drone Media Scotland works for private individuals, property managers and insurance companies to photograph and document roof structures Scotland wide

For roof inspections, drones are the way forward, drones are safe and take less time. Drone Media Scotland undertakes safe drone aerial roof inspections over the whole of Scotland and the islands, with turnaround of less than 48 Hours in most cases.

We work with major UK insurance companies to record roof problems using drones. We also record internal images and take measurements of rooms and areas affected.

We can undertake roof inspections as White Label and are fully insured and CAA approved, we also undertake RAMS assessments before beginning tasks.

Using drones for roof inspections offers several benefits compared to traditional inspection methods. Here are some of the advantages:

  1. Safety: Roof inspections can be dangerous, especially for steep or high roofs. Drones eliminate the need for inspectors to physically climb onto roofs, reducing the risk of falls and injuries.

  2. Cost-effective: Drones are more cost-effective than hiring a crew of workers or specialized equipment for manual inspections. With a drone, a single operator can efficiently inspect multiple roofs in a shorter time frame.

  3. Time-saving: Drones can complete roof inspections faster than manual methods. They can quickly capture high-resolution imagery or video footage, covering large areas in a relatively short period. This saves time for both the inspector and the property owner.

  4. Detailed visual data: Drones equipped with high-resolution cameras or thermal imaging sensors can capture detailed visual data of roofs. This allows inspectors to detect issues that may not be visible to the naked eye, such as cracks, leaks, missing shingles, or other damage.

  5. Documentation and analysis: Drones can provide accurate and comprehensive documentation of roof conditions. The collected data can be stored and analyzed later, enabling comparisons between inspections over time and helping in identifying trends or patterns in roof deterioration.

  6. Access to hard-to-reach areas: Drones can navigate tight spaces, complex roof designs, or inaccessible areas more easily than human inspectors. They can capture images and videos from multiple angles, providing a comprehensive view of the entire roof.

  7. Improved decision-making: The visual data collected by drones can aid in better decision-making regarding roof repairs, maintenance, or insurance claims. Inspectors and property owners can have a clear understanding of the roof's condition and prioritize necessary repairs based on the data collected.

  8. Environmentally friendly: Compared to traditional inspection methods involving scaffolding or ladders, drones are environmentally friendly. They minimize disruption to the surroundings, reduce the use of additional resources, and lower the carbon footprint associated with the inspection process.

Overall, using drones for roof inspections improves safety, efficiency, accuracy, and cost-effectiveness, making them an increasingly popular choice in the field of building inspection and maintenance.
