Why you should get an aerial drone roof inspection of your commercial premises

Aerial drone roof inspection is a quick, easy and hassle-free way to check out any issues with your commercial roof. Drones are being used by industrial roofing contractors far more frequently to inspect commercial roofs, which can sometimes be difficult to access.

In this blog, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why a drone inspection conducted by NWIR could be the most cost-effective and straightforward way to get an accurate report on your commercial roof.

How can a drone be used to inspect a commercial roof?

Here at NWIR, our state-of-the-art drones can be used to inspect your commercial roof in great detail. They will gather all the data we need to make critical decisions regarding roofing work that needs to be completed. This data will include information about your roof’s condition, measurements and materials. Our drones even have thermal capabilities, detecting problems with your commercial roof that aren’t visible to the naked eye.

You will have full access to all our drone footage, and we’ll walk you through any areas of concern.

Industrial roofing contractors can save you money with a drone roof inspection

Preventative maintenance is essential when it comes to ensuring the safety and stability of your commercial roof. Drone roof inspections can detect any problems with your roof early, allowing you to get them fixed before they turn into serious issues – saving you a lot of money and hassle.

Additionally, drones avoid the need to use expensive cherry pickers or high-level rope access, and the extra personnel costs associated with these methods. It’s therefore usually much cheaper to get an industrial roofing contractor to inspect your commercial roof using a drone.

Commercial roof inspections using drones can save you time

Since drones can help industrial roofing contractors to make extremely accurate measurements, conduct inspections and site surveys in far less time than it would take a human, this method is much more efficient.

Drone roof inspections are not at all intrusive to your business, allowing your staff to continue to be productive without the disruption of several workmen on the roof.

Industrial roofing contractors using drones are prioritising safety

In 2019 alone, there were 29 deaths as a result of roofers falling from height in the UK. Roofing is a risky job, and there are unfortunately many industrial roofing contractors that don’t adhere to safety standards. Here at NWIR, we ensure that we comply with all relevant statutory requirements, regulations and Codes of Practice. In addition to this, we are a member of the NFRC and the British Safety Council.

Our use of high-tech drones to inspect commercial roofs means that our employees don’t need to spend as much time on your roof, with a single pilot able to operate the drone from ground level.

In addition to collecting all the necessary data about your commercial roof, the drone footage will identify any areas of the roof which are unstable. This means that once work is underway on your commercial roof repair, the potential for accidents will be minimised.

Drones help industrial roofing contractors to document job progress

Drones are a brilliant way of efficiently documenting progress on your commercial roof repair or replacement. Many industrial roofing contractors use drones to survey progress on jobs at least once per day, helping to keep track of developments and save time and money.

As our drone footage is digital, it’s easy for us to store and analyse it. We can also share it with our colleagues for easy collaboration and show the footage to our clients to illustrate job progression.
