Commercial Roof Survey By Drone
Using drones for commercial roof surveys is a relatively new but powerful use of technology. These type of surveys can reduce costs, improve safety and lead to an improvement in the speed and quality of information gathering. The data gathered can be instrumental in your decision-making process. Prior to drone technology, aerial images of roofs where simply unfeasible for the majority, with roof surveys being a labour intensive task. Not only does using a drone increases the speed of a survey, but it can also become much more cost-effective, the labour time is dramatically reduced and scaffolding and elevated platforms are no longer needed. For complicated structures, being able to recall the information from the roof surveys to seek advice from multiple sources is a major advantage that should be utilised more in the future. In addition to the cost advantages, from a safety point of view, drones can complete hazardous work at height tasks with greatly reduced health and safety risks.
