A “Drone Roof Inspection” is the process of verifying the integrity of a building structure and ensuring safety for its occupants and people within its vicinity by using drones. Carrying out a physical inspection at a busy construction site can be dangerous and raise various safety concerns. GIS Drones Façade Inspection platform, operated by a one or two-man team, aims to slash the time taken to a few days using AI to mark Façade defects. With industrial drones to carry out inspection works, GIS Drones can easily acquire precise and accurate visual data; the data collected can be used for many purposes.

Rooftop Inspection

Maintenance inspection on high structures such as towers, roofs, and bridges incur extra costs and cause issues of access arrangement and personnel working at height.

Drone inspection provides the fastest and easiest solution to acquire details of the structures; the engineer on the ground can receive real-time footage during the process.

Frequently Asked Questions – WE HAVE GOT YOU COVERED 24/7

GIS Drones use machine learning algorithms to speed up the process of anomaly identification and provide an overview of defects on web-based dashboards.

Automated generated reports in various formats are also available for download, highlighting issues found on a building in a fraction of the time compared to current manual inspection processes.

Most solutions in the market are manual and require expensive scaffoldings, robes, or cranes. The rare few that engage drones are still very manual, requiring manual inspection of the collected images and data. GIS Drones automate the interpretation of the data and reporting through automated workflows reducing the time taken by over 80%. As a result, our clients have experienced over 50% cost savings and, most importantly, mitigated safety challenges with work-at-height.

Schedule a call with GIS Drones to help you with the end-to-end process and provide you with a detailed inspection report for your maintenance team.

Contact us so we can share real-life case studies of the Facade Inspection at info@gisdrones.com.

GIS Drones prices are affordable. After conducting the market research, we are confident that the total drone inspection cost will be at least 50% less than the manual inspection cost.

It depends on the complexity of the building and the number of images. For example, a building with 12 floors will take approximately 2 days of drone inspection and 5 days to provide the final inspection report.

You will receive an inspection report that detects 30 types of anomalies and defects in the building exterior. The anomalies will be identified according to their severity level and marked accurately and graphically on the building faces for easy identification. And you will have access to the platform 24/7.
