Why get a Drone Roof Survey?
A roof can be one of the most difficult areas of a building to survey. There are a number of items that are traditionally required for surveyors to complete an in-depth report. Equipment such as cherry pickers, MEWPs, or scaffolding are generally required. Even then you still can’t achieve the angles and overviews that a drone roof survey allows. The equipment used traditionally often comes with time and expense. For example, if you are surveying a roof on a main road, you may require permits and lane closures. You then also have the issue of working at height which is a definite risk to life or serious injury, no matter what the situation. However, at Drone Site Surveys we work smarter to produce faster, cheaper, and more accurate data for you and your clients.
By carrying out a drone roof survey, we can complete a task that could take days (or even weeks on larger buildings or sites) into much smaller time frames. Not only that, we do it with fewer people and can reach parts of the roof that you could never dream of using old-style surveying methods.
Our independent roof survey covers every roof type out there with ease, not only that, we can do so with fantastic accuracy. Utilising the best and most accurate RTK drones out there, aligned with photogrammetry software, we are able to produce roof surveys with highly accurate measurements.

Different Roof Types We Cover
Using our drone, we can survey roofs and buildings of all different shapes sizes and height. Our drones can operate in classified airspace up to 400ft but we have drones that can achieve above 9,000 feet, like our Phantom 4 RTK SDK. The Phantom 4 RTK can also achieve Ground Sample Distance (GSD) accuracy of 2.74cm at 330ft flight altitude. It doesn’t matter if it’s a flat, hipped, gabled, mansard, or any other roof type. When preforming an independent roof survey our drones can get within 1.5m of the roof and with zoom lens attached. We can then focus and highlight as small as a single roof tile in stunning UHD 4K quality. These pictures will become a permanent record that all stakeholders can view, and decide on the appropriate course of action for maintenance or replacement. They can also be used for a schedule of condition survey to share amongst your team.

Roof Survey Data We Produce
We understand that every project is different. For example, if you are a homeowner with a leaking roof or maintenance issues, or a surveyor carrying out an asset condition report, you will both require different data. Drone Site Surveys can provide just still or video images, or we can also supply highly accurate measuring services using photogrammetry software.
Producing everything from just imagery, right up to RICS Accredited surveys for you to deliver directly to your client. They may even form a basis of an insurance claim for your property repairs. The bonus of our surveys is that we use a drone with UHD 4K capabilities. This allows you to store the images, share them with your team, and keep the images as reference points. You can also see areas of the roof that you are unable to see using a traditional survey taken from a scaffold or elevated platforms such as the back of chimney stacks etc.
