Drone Roof & Building Inspections

Drone imagery is the most cost-effective way to assess the condition of a roof and support facilities management. We avoid the need for workers visually inspecting at heights thereby reducing cost and reducing risk. The addition of a 3D model and our inSite software enables easy fault identification and data navigation.

In addition to the external inspections of buildings, we offer a service to document virtual tours and inspection of the internal layout of buildings, warehouses and industrial facilities.

AUAV has experience working across hundreds of building assets for single clients and reporting at a large scale for companies and government. The reports AUAV provides are easy to interpret so you can see at a glance whether it needs your attention. Each defect is then highlighted in the report with high-resolution photos.

Our inSite software also acts as a historical archive for all condition data. For more information or a quote please email us at

Roof & Building Inspection Applications

Water utility drone inspections.

Residential and Commercial Roof Inspections

Get a superior layout and assessment of the condition of your building’s roofing with regular roof inspections from a roof inspection drone. These inspections can ensure your home or business’ roofing is properly maintained and can be utilised alongside regular inspections.

Industrial Building Drone Inspections

On top of being just the roofing, a drone inspection can also provide valuable data capture and insight into the more internal structuring of an industrial building such as a warehouse or factory. Building inspectors can assist alongside using drone technology to provide effective information.

Water & Utility Drone Inspections

Water utilities manage a vast array of assets to provide their potable water and wastewater services. Drone-based survey and inspection services offer huge time and cost efficiencies, as well as quantifiable safety benefits by removing the need for personnel to gain access to locations.

Focusing on the outputs, AUAV has experience with data capture using drones, submersibles and remote bathymetric survey boats.

Typical Services Include:
  • Building, dam and spillway inspections.
  • Pipeline surveys and inspections.
  • Replacing confined space inspections with remote tracked vehicles.
  • Topographical surveys for dam-break modelling/simulations.
  • Feral animal mapping in closed catchments.
  • 3D tank modelling and inspections.
  • Aerial gas detection.
  • Stage storage analysis of reservoirs.
  • Internal inspections of tanks, pits and pipes.
  • Thermography to identify water leaks or electrical faults.
  • Stockpile surveys for annual reconciliation of bio-solids.

Roof & Building Inspection Benefits

Reduce risks – the usage of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) allows for less workers to be out in the environment, which reduces the risk of accidents or injury for said workers when compared to performing a manual inspection.

Save time – the ability drones have to work their way through areas and capture accurate data without lots of other equipment will save significant amounts of time over other inspection methods.

Access hidden & inaccessible areas – drones have the size and maneuverability to sneak their way into spaces – or high above ground – for shots from places not normally accessible, making them very sought after.

Cut traditional inspection costs – the lesser amount of equipment, time, and workers required with drone roof inspections means a reduced cost for the entire inspection process.
