The storm on St Jude’s day in October 2013 caused severe damage to the church spire in Wadhurst. Not only had the shingles been removed but the entire structure to one facet was ripped away including tennoned rafters and braces leaving a gaping hole in the side of the spire.

We managed to climb inside and get above the 8 bells to the eave at over 100 feet up using harnesses and ropes to prevent falls.

Aerial Surveys Aerial Surveys

We offer aerial surveys using UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as they are commonly known to the public.

This method of inspecting roofs is perfect for inaccessible places and with the normal risks to operatives removed, it is a cost effective way to inspect roofs and structures.

We have a maximum height of up to 400ft. This can be increased if a specific CAA permission is granted for that particular work.

The pilots hold a BNUCs qualification and work with a ground crew to maintain safety at all times.

Civil Aviation Authority permission for aerial work has been granted and all aspects of the work are insured.

This work eliminates the need for scaffolding or hydraulic platforms. The resulting photographic stills at 20m pixels and the high definition video in 1080p at 50 frames a second give you the results you need to see any problems.

The camera is also fitted with a remote zoom function to enable close up footage of the structure or roof

We are in the process of sourcing a compatible thermal imaging camera to fit on our UAV which will enable flat roofs to be imaged revealing leaks and cold spots etc.

Please call us to discuss your particular requirements should you wish us to carry out an aerial survey of your property.
