Roofers Glasgow

Essence Roofers Glasgow carry out drone surveys on all kinds of properties on a regular basis. If you require a drone survey in Glasgow or surrounding areas then please call us on 0141 570 9152.

Over the years we have helped many customers successfully enact essential roof repair works that needed to be carried out in their properties. The problem some customers had was that on some occasions their roof was too high to be surveyed which meant they simply had no idea what the potential repair bill could be as the roof could not be surveyed without using hired access equipment which is of course quite expensive- especially for a survey.

This all changed with advent of drone technology. For the first time ever we could survey a tenement block of flats or any type of high buildings from the safety of the ground thoroughly and compile a list of potential repair works before even looking to erect access equipment.

We use high quality UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) technology to survey your roof. Our operative are experienced and well trained in doing safe and thorough drone surveys.

Does the report include video and photos?

Yes we include both video capture and photos of your drone survey with report.

How much does it cost?

We don’t offer a one size fits all price. Anyone who does in our experience is either over or under quoting in most cases.

One thing noted by roofers is that a drone survey is generally a very good investment for roof inspections as compared to using access equipment such as IPAF systems or scaffolds to get a look as it is still usually cheaper than hiring above said access equipment.

Various factors influence the cost of a drone survey such as the size of the building, manpower required to do the survey, complexity of the building layout, prevailing weather conditions various other factors. It’s best to call us to get a custom quote.
