Oxygen UAV Photography Roof Inspections

Oxygen UAV Photography Roof Inspections

Oxygen UAV Photography roof inspections are delivered using a state-of-the art UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – aka drone), which offer our clients a cost-effective, high-quality solution that eliminates the risk of working at height associated with traditional means of survey access. 

Oxygen UAV Photography’s UAV drone aircraft offer significant cost savings when compared with traditional methods of access when undertaking condition surveys on all types of commercial, industrial, residential and historic buildings. This is largely due to the reduced time needed on site.

Typically, the site element of a survey can be completed in a matter of hours rather than days and the lack of requirement for hire of powered access or scaffolding which can add significant cost.

Some areas of roofs may be completely inaccessible by traditional access methods. Fragile roofs and ageing asbestos containing materials present a serious health and safety risk. By utilising a drone survey, detailed photographic data can be obtained of the roof and high-level elements of a building without the risk of fall or disturbing and releasing asbestos.

We operate a sophisticated market-leading UAV, offering unprecedented safety, fail-safe systems and flight stabilisation technology.

How it works:

When you make initial contact, we will discuss:

  • Your requirements, type of building, work involved and location
  • From this initial assessment we can quicky spot any potential hazards

Additional Checks:

  • A site survey will be performed to check for additional hazards
  • Risk assessment forms completed
  • Potential flight / backup dates arranged
  • Weather checks / wind / environmental
  • Notify nearby properties of UAV activity on dates and supply contact details in case of any questions

On the day:

  • Weather checks / wind / environmental
  • FRZ / NOTAM checks
  • Aircraft pre-flight checks
  • Safety briefing
  • Fly the aircraft and gather photos / video
  • Review photos / video footage to check any highlighted issues on the initial flight
  • Second flight if required to re-check highlighted issues


  • Provide photos / video footage
