Our drone services are the ideal tool to get detailed reports on the condition of your roof. This way you can ensure that all future repair work is carried out in a cost and time efficient manner. Drone surveys don't require anyone to physically access your roof. This allows for safer and faster data collection without causing damage. Pinpoint analysis of the entire roof allows tradespeople to only access areas that are necessary, drastically reducing safety concerns, future maintenance and budget costs.
Drones equipped with thermal imaging cameras allow you to accurately assess the condition of a roof. Infrared photographs can be used to detect extreme temperature differences that can locate otherwise unseen issues, such as concealed moisture damage and heat leakage.
The use of drone 3D modelling technologies gives you the opportunity to inspect a digital twin of a roof from the comfort of your office. This detailed replica can be inspected at a minute level, allowing you to make a record of any areas that are in need of attention. Issues such as poorly executed repairs, general damage and other potential weaknesses can be shared with your employees, suppliers and other shareholders at the click of a button.
Using ultra-high-definition cameras and zoom lenses we can pinpoint areas that are suffering from decay, cracks, erosion, corrosion and other damage. Enjoy peace of mind in knowing that issues that are causing, and have the potential to cause, serious problems will be found quickly and efficiently.
Our drones can capture the minute details of any object, without having to touch or even get close to it. Objects that once had to be shut down, climbed and traversed can now be inspected and monitored in real time more quickly, and with zero risk to personnel.
As licensed engineers, we also provide the expertise, understanding, and knowledge necessary to carry out a thorough inspection, with deliverables to match. Our skilled engineers are at the ready.
The Irish Aviation Authority has awarded Engineers with Drones full approval in accordance with the most recent European-wide EASA regulations.
To ensure that you always get the best possible service and cutting-edge deliverables, we purchase the most up-to-date drone technology as soon as it's available.
The operation of Engineers With Drones is governed by a comprehensive HSSE system. Our guiding principles are to reduce risk through rigorous assessment, and to maintain a high level of staff education and training.

As we're situated in Ireland, we can respond to your needs quickly, with zero travel complications.
As seasoned engineers in the field, we are aware of the trouble that shoddy reports and deliverables can create. For this reason, we provide you with exactly what you require.
Thanks to our fast turnaround times, your entire project can be completed in a fraction of the time of traditional methods, without any compromise in the quality of your deliverables.
In addition to quadrupling the resolution of an HD camera, 4K also gives you quicker frame rates, incredible contrast variations, and expanded colours. VR video takes the level of immersion and clarity to the next level.
Drone technology is cheaper, safer and more reliable than traditional methods such as scaffolding, cherry-pickers and ropes. It's also quicker and less labour intensive. We will bring everything we need and be out of your way that same day.
The safety of your personnel and our own is paramount, and we place it at the forefront of our company culture. Ask us about our HSSE systems and practices.
Our equipment won't touch or even go close to your assets. Our high-resolution cameras use optical zoom to give extreme close-up views while staying a safe distance away.
We use cutting-edge technologies to detect problems that would otherwise be invisible. These include ultra-HD photography/video, LIDAR and thermal imaging.
Drones aren't just for flying up in the sky. Our specialist drones can fly into confined spaces like chimneys and boilers to look for issues that would otherwise be inaccessible.
We understand that you need answers fast. We can deliver a plain-English report with clear-cut conclusions in days. Then, you can take the steps you need to and get back to doing what you do best.
Drone inspections take up less of your manhours and resources than traditional inspections, giving you a faster and more budget-friendly return on your investment.
Sometimes the brief can change even in real-time. If need be, you can be stood there right next to the drone operator, directing them as the situation develops.
Traditional methods for roof inspections and surveys are labour intensive and time consuming. For personnel to climb onto the roof, they have to erect supports. They also have to walk across the roof. The time involved and the risk of liability and injury create unnecessary headaches for a project. Access to certain areas can be risky and sometimes impossible. This means that getting a detailed, high-quality report is unlikely.
Using drones allows you to get far more detailed information about the condition of your roof in a fraction of the time, while keeping your feet firmly on the ground. Our drones can take highly detailed photos and videos from a distance or up close. We capture and analyse every inch of a roof, including hard-to-reach or confined spaces.
Not only can your entire roof be seen as the naked eye would, but we can also detect areas of water anomalies with our thermal imaging cameras. Water seeping through a roof isn't only the cause of leaks in the building, but also rot and mould within it. The cost-saving benefits of detecting water damage before it can cause further damage are incalculable. The culprit areas of water damage, heat loss, cold spots, etc. are not usually obvious. Sometimes it's impossible to see them with the naked eye. It's time-consuming and costly to find such defects with "guess and check" methods. It's also not uncommon for these areas to be overlooked in conventional inspection methods. The consequences of this are devastating.
We take emails, phone calls, messages, everything! If you are unsure of what's possible we are happy to advise, the most important thing is to get in touch. We would be delighted to answer any questions you may have.
With drones, it's best to begin where you want to end up. What sort of deliverable would you like when it's all finished? If you are not sure then we can advise. We can look at what you would like and work backwards from there.
Once we have agreed on what is to be done, the scope of work is set and a price is agreed upon. We feel it is vital that everyone knows what they are getting and what they are paying for it. There should be no confusion.
Once we have confirmation you are happy to proceed, we start the ball rolling. We organise things like RAMS, site permits, Air Traffic Control clearance and much more. Basically, we generate everything needed to turn up on-site with all our ducks in a row.
Next, we do the work on site. We have the gear, we have the know-how, so now it's time to get the job done. This can sometimes be affected by the weather, but for the most part, we get the job done on the date specified.
This is where we take what we generated in the field and turn it into a final deliverable for you. This can be anything from the raw data itself, to fully processed Orthophotos, condition reports, CAD line work or thermal imagery.
The final step is the handover of the deliverables. We tend to use a cloud-based service, so you can access your data anywhere. We can also tie into your existing systems if that is more convenient.
Spoiler alert: we don't do weddings! We're professional engineers who have learned to fly drones really well. If you're looking for a photo of your garden or a swooshing shot of your wedding reception, we're probably not the right people for you. But if you need an engineer's eyes and experience, combined with next-generation UAV technology and industry leading deliverables, then you've come to the right place.

Using state-of-the-art technology, we can find and highlight issues that are hard to find or even invisible to the naked eye. This saves further time in the repair or replacement of roof components. Tradespeople and other personnel on-site can be directed to areas of concern with pinpoint accuracy and with all the information they need. These reports can also be shared digitally with anyone else that may need to examine them. For example, with stakeholders and insurance companies.
We purchase the latest drones as they come on the market to ensure you are getting the highest quality service from us at all times. Here is a quick look at what we would be most likely to use for a typical drone roof inspection.
