Imagine the scene. There’s been a big storm and one of your clients has extensive damage to their roof. As their insurers it’s your job to get the matter dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. In doing this you will ensure your customer service is first class and you’ll minimise the costs that can arise with this sort of claim.
When you have a claim for a damaged roof you need emergency drone photography with a fast turnaround and a reliable service. Here at Rising View we have extensive experience in all types of aerial photography. We deal with roof inspections, drains, gutters and solar panels.
We inspect residential homes, commercial premises and churches. In fact, all buildings at height that are vulnerable to damage during bad weather. We provide an emergency response survey which covers the whole of Dundee.
One of the most important reasons for using drone photography at height is safety. Traditionally an individual or team would have to climb up to a damaged roof and take photographs or videos manually. This meant delays if it was too windy to make the climb or the risk of an individual falling.
Drone photography eliminates this risk. It is a safe method of inspection at height which can be carried out without too much delay. We are licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority and we are covered by Public Liability Insurance.
Remote aerial surveys are ideal for inspection of roofs or chimneys. We use UAV mounted cameras which will give you a high-resolution video or photographs. The data and imagery are captured with a range of high quality sensors and this gives accurate detail that is hard to match using traditional photography or video.
We carry out an inspection using 4k high resolution video and still photography. Firstly, images are captured of the whole roof. Next, we zoom in to take close-ups top down in a grid. After that, each side of the roof is photographed or videoed at a 45-degree angle. Finally, we take photographs or videos of any other points of interest, such as windows, chimneys or guttering.
Other Uses for Drone Photography
An aerial drone inspection can also be provided for other means. For example, using drone photography for things which can’t easily be seen with the naked eye. Thermal imaging allows you to see areas of excessive heat loss. Detecting vegetation growth is another area. 3D modelling of commercial buildings will provide health and safety guidance, works scheduling and planned maintenance.
Fast and Efficient
Roof inspections using drone photography can be carried out by appointment or as an emergency drone service. Our emergency service means we can get to your location quickly and we can edit and deliver the photographs and/or videos to you on location. You can even watch the inspection from our van in real-time.
