Trinity Court roof condition survey

EK Digital have recently undertaken a roof condition survey in Salford, Manchester.

The drone survey was instructed due to known defects on the roofs.  There had previously been surveys carried out using a cherry picker but these were restricted by their nature to specific areas and did not give a full understanding of the roof and elevated areas.  Our visual survey was completed in half a day ensuring safe and efficient coverage of the roof; identifying & recording various defects. 

Our visual survey assisted our EK North team in making recommendations in relation to repair works and identifying areas that need immediate attention.

Challenges for the drone team included:

  • Careful and experienced piloting around the trees to the rear of the property which were obstructing capture to elements of the roof.
  • Maintaining VLOS (visual line of sight) especially to the rear of the property.
