Regular Chimney inspections really are something that will pay dividends over the years.

It is recommended that regular professional inspections are ideal to keep your chimney in top condition alongside less formal checks carried out by the homeowner.

There’s no denying the practical benefit and comfort factor of an open fire in your home however, your chimney does require regular inspection if you are to continue to enjoy your time by the hearth safely.

Creosote can build up inside the chimney which is the most common cause of chimney fires and chimney stacks can be become blocked by bird nests or other debris, or otherwise become structurally unsound.

Inspection of the roof, and specifically the chimney, before a house purchase can provide valuable information about your new home and pinpoint any problems before you progress.

Drones can offer a non-intrusive, fast and cost-efficient way to assess your chimney, both for domestic and commercial installations. High-resolution images can be captured with minimal disruption in just a short flight.  Alternatively, in cases where drone flight is impractical, our sophisticated inspection cameras can be mounted to our freestanding mast.

… Builders and property developers can use our UAV pilots to carry out detailed inspections of chimney stacks in a fraction of the time and cost that it would take to erect scaffolding or bring an elevated platform onto site.  The flexibility of a camera in the sky means that a chimney, even one in an area that is difficult to access via traditional methods, can be captured from all angles meaning a complete assessment can be made.  A repair plan can be formulated if required and any remedial work can be carried out in a targeted and thus effective manner.


Masts are not required to remain a 30m/50m distance from People, Property, Vessels and Vehicles. This allows us to get in close for all inspection work whether filming video or capturing photographic of Thermal images


Unlike Drone flights, Masts are not restricted by time due to battery depletion. This means that with Mast photography, video and thermal capture the session can continue for much longer periods of time, capturing much more


Drones can not fly in bad weather conditions, unlike Mast photography, video and thermal capture when using appropriate weather-protected coverings/material, sessions can continue in rain and much higher wind conditions. 

The following camera technology is available with Mast Photography, Video and Thermal Imaging


Uncompromising image quality and a thoroughly professional performance producing 30.4 Megapixels, 4K Video, GPS and RAW image workflow. The camera can shoot 7 fps and HDR Movie along with Time-lapse Movie


The Zenmuse Z30 is the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market with 30x optical and 6x digital zoom for a total magnification up to 180x.  It enables you to get a detailed look at structures to detect damage.


The Zenmuse XT is developed by market leaders FLIR and DJI. It provides high-sensitivity (50mK) thermal imaging at 640/30 fps. Radiometric technology allows pixel level accurate temperature measurements or select an area to display average, highest, and lowest temperatures within the selection.


The Zenmuse X5S has a dynamic range of 12.8 stops using a Micro 4/3 sensor. Capable of capturing 5.2K 30fps video as well as 4K 60fps using H.264 and 4K 30fps using H.265 (both at 100Mbps). Continuous DNG burst shooting at 20fps with 20.8MP images is also supported.
