Roof & building aerial inspection by drone – Saffron Walden aerial photography

Safety and maintenance aerial surveys by drone allow high resolution photos  and videos to be taken of roofs, chimneys, lightning conductors, masonry, asbestos and other structures which are too expensive, difficult or dangerous to access in any other way. By flying quite close to roofs and other structures we can capture highly detailed images. Once on site we can be flying within 30 minutes and can quickly capture images to minimise disruption to your business or property. We’re based in Saffron Walden and cover a radius of 60 miles around for aerial inspection of roofs, chimneys and other structures, domestic and commercial.

Infrastructure surveys

We can provide aerial photos and video footage of solar farms in the Saffron Walden area.

Wind turbines can be surveyed more quickly using drones compared to the usual labour-intensive process involving steeplejacks and ropes. It is also safer. A drone aerial survey can quickly identify potential issues allowing you to set priorities and a timetable for planned or emergency maintenance.

Construction and land surveys

For planning permission applications, an aerial photo can show the view from a proposed window to demonstrate whether or not there are privacy issues.  Aerial photography allows a developer to monitor the progress of a development from foundations to completion, often useful for providing evidence for triggering release of finance at key stages of construction. Drone aerial photography has a variety of uses in construction and provides a useful aid for architects, civil engineers and local authority planning and building control departments.

We can also survey land for a variety of purposes such as agriculture, forestry or archaeology. A drone can provide high resolution aerial photos of 50 of more acres on a single 20 minute flight.
