We were recently commissioned by a building surveyor to take a set of inspection photographs of the roof of a terraced house in Hammersmith, London, and this shoot was a prime example of how our telescopic mast is perfectly suited to performing roof inspections in very cramped conditions where no vehicle-mounted mast could ever reach.

We were recently commissioned by a building surveyor to take a set of inspection photographs of the roof of a terraced house in Hammersmith, London, and this shoot was a prime example of how our telescopic mast is perfectly suited to performing roof inspections in very cramped conditions where no vehicle-mounted mast could ever reach. 
 
The surveyor had been contracted to create a report of the building's condition before it was bought by a prospective buyer, and part of the survey was to include a report on the condition of the roof. Unfortunately, there was no access hatch onto the roof from within the house, and without using a very long ladder or scaffolding, there was simply no way to view the roof to assess its condition.

The building in question was one of a row of terraced houses in Central London which was flanked very closely by a row of tall trees. Not only that, but there were several telephone wires criss-crossing the front of the building too. All of this meant that there was only a single 'keyhole' of free space which our mast could be threaded through to penetrate the canopy of the trees and provide a clear view of the roof of the building. 
 
It was a similar story at the rear of the property, with a tiny garden that was barely large enough for the mast's tripod to be erected – and that's not to mention the challenge of carrying the mast, tripod and all the associated equipment through a very narrow, low-ceilinged Victorian terrace house! 
 
The results speak for themselves though, and what was otherwise a completely invisible roof structure (from ground level) with no means of access, the surveyor now has clear, high-resolution images of the roof's structure on which to base his survey. 
 
Do you need a cost-effective survey of the roof of your house or commercial building? Do you need photographic evidence of the condition of your building's roof for insurance or tenancy / leasing purposes? Drop us a line today and we will explain how we can use our drone and / or mast to capture all the imagery you need at an affordable price.
