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 no-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 jut 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.
