Owning a home is great, but comes with responsibility. Whether you have a new build or a period property, packed with character, roof can develop faults, most of the time without warning. This hard to reach part of your house is an important system in keeping you warm, dry and most importantly, safe.

Why get a roof inspection

Roof safety and maintenance is an important part of home ownership, but seldom is on the top of owners priorities. A leaking roof, or damaged roof can develop further problems inside the house. Like most things, these repairs often get more expensive.

Generally speaking, it is a good idea to have your roof inspected before the weather declines into the winter months or after storms to assess any damage.

If you’re planning an extension, conservatory, dormer or roof replacement, it’s a good idea to know what you’re working with. By using Drone Inspector to have a detailed look at the current condition of your roof.

Drone Inspector can provide a quick solution to the birds eye view of your roof. By using our small, lightweight drones, we can quickly produce high resolution photos and videos with annotations to show you any areas of concern

Flat Roofs

Most insurers (somewhere in the terms and conditions) require you to have a roof inspection every 12 months. This may seem overcautious, but as anyone in property management can tell you, it’s easy for standing water on a flat roof to develop to a further problem very quickly.

By keeping on top of your flat roof inspections, you can alleviate the risk of flat roof issues by inspecting your flat roof every 12 months. Drone Inspector can do this quickly and easily without using ladders.

Why use drones for roof inspection?
