Why? Because using a drone is quicker, safer and less expensive. By the time you call in high access equipment and specialist contractors, we can have the job done.

Camera drones can easily review storm damage, water leaks, roof and fabric integrity, unstable masonry or cladding at high levels, even on fragile roofs, skylights and areas without edge protection or mansafe systems.

Our building integrity assessments survey the whole external envelope, including building fabric, steelwork, roofs, guttering, skylights, cladding and glazing.

We can assess the condition of asbestos cement roofs as part of asbestos management inspections. Aerial surveys can also review roof-mounted smoke ventilation systems from a prime viewpoint, quickly identifying defective ventilators.

Our chimney inspections assess structural integrity with 4K video and thermal imaging to verify hot spots and thinning without the use of ladder access.
