Roof repairs to a two and three storey residential conversion

Anticipating roof repair costs can been tricky, with the use of EK Digital and their expert Drone, EK North were able to successfully identify the problems without the need for scaffolding

Earl Kendrick North is delighted to be instructed as contract administrator and principal designer for a programme of roof repairs to a two and three storey residential Property in Didsbury.

Due to the construction of the roofs access was limited, which can create challenges when putting together a schedule of works.

EK Digital were able to use a drone to carry out a close inspection of the various elements of the roofs and record its condition.

The information was provided to EK North which assisted in reducing the need for provisional sums, ensuring accurate costs can be obtained during the tender period.

The use of a drone also resulted in cost savings for the client as there was no requirement for scaffolding or other access equipment.
