One of the fastest changing industries is the UK’s construction sector. Drones are disrupting the construction industry by replacing traditional building surveying methods.
According to a report by law firm Charles Russell Speechlys – over half of construction business decision makers say drone technology is either already in use in their industry, or will be in the future.
This shift is happening as more and more companies realise the capabilities and the value of drones to their business.
Drones reduce costs, save time and improve safety in the workplace.
Walsall Housing Group (WHG), a Midland’s housing association, claims using drones saves their business around £20,000 a year by allowing it to inspect roofs without erecting scaffolding.
Drones are saving roofing companies thousands of hours in preliminary work by helping them to deliver superior roof repair quotes with incredible accuracy.
An aerial survey can quickly visually pinpoint and record the exact remedial work that is required. Showing a customer the actual roof damage builds confidence. Accurate quotes impress potential clients and no doubt win business.
Last year, we launched a campaign to help gain awareness of the benefits that a DSR aerial roof inspection can bring.
We wanted to get the message across that our DSR members’ drones can quickly, safely and cost effectively be deployed to check the condition of a property’s roof.
Storm damage, water leakage and missing tiles are just a few roof issues that an aerial inspection can help identify. Performing an aerial inspection of the property’s roof can highlight issues before they deteriorate more. Since we posted the ‘DSR Roof Inspection’ video it has received over 75,000 views.
