Effective Building & Consultancy are regularly asked to perform drone survey inspection and defect analysis for our clients. In most cases, these surveys can be performed by the relevant specialists where they do on-site observations. We simply view the specific part of the building that has been affected or needs inspection.
If you have a leak on a high-level building or need a roof condition survey, the traditional route is to physically access the roof and make a visual inspection in person. However, with the rising use of commercial drones in the surveying community, the option of drone survey inspection is now more common than it used to be.
But how do you know if the drone survey inspection is required in your building? Again, we will dig your options in this blog.
Are You Considering a Drone Survey Inspection?
We undertake all types of building surveys. In most cases, this may include specialist roof access equipment such as a drone or cherry picker.
A drone survey inspection involves a drone operator taking a video recording of the roof or another building area. Drone survey inspection can be a great way to access high-risk areas. However, this still depends on the building being surveyed and the problem that needs to be resolved.
You might think that a drone survey inspection is the best option, but seeking guidance from a professional could save you money in the long run.
Ask a Qualified Building Surveyor First
Using the expertise of a qualified building surveyor means that you can get specialist advice on the specific survey that best meets your needs.
It’s essential to know the details of the specific issue that needs to be resolved. While a reputable drone operator has the necessary skills to record footage, they won’t produce a building inspection report or analyse what might be causing a defect.
Before considering whether to arrange a drone survey inspection, we’d recommend acquiring the services of a company like Effective Building & Consultancy to assess the situation.
Based on our knowledge, we can advise whether a drone survey inspection is needed and analyse the issue to find the best solution for you, your home, or your business.
Yes, we’ll admit that commissioning a drone to fly over your property is a very cool use of state-of-the-art technology. However, if it’s not needed, your money can be better spent on more important things.
