Drone surveys

What is a Drone?

A drone is a remotely controlled aerial vehicle that can be fitted with a camera. Drone surveys are ideal for building and roof inspections making it easier to see those hard to reach locations. Every roof inspection conducted by our survey drones offers HD video and high quality photographs.

Why use a Drone?

  • Safer – First of all there is no need to send someone to work at height when you can send a drone.
  • Cheaper – A drone is a fraction of the cost of hiring a cherry picker or erecting traditional scaffolding.
  • Faster – Most of our jobs are completed in under an hour.

Approved Drone Surveys

Safety is central to our flying activities, therefore the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has reviewed and approved our flight safety management systems. Prior to awarding us with formal permission to perform aerial work.

There are a number of formal procedures that we perform before taking off, designed to make sure every flight is safe and that any potential hazards are identified and controlled. Procedures include pre-site surveys, task specific risk assessments and equipment checks.


There are legal standards relating to the operation of remote piloted air systems, therefore the permissions we have been granted by the CAA dictate what we can and cannot do.

Due to these permissions, your job requests are discussed first with you to ensure we can definitely go ahead. This is because safety is our highest priority.

How much does it cost?

It costs £400 + VAT for an hour on site, with any additional hours charged at £125 + VAT per hour.

    Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what our clients are saying...

    We made real headway with our dispute within a couple of days of Housemartins becoming involved.

    Bill, East Sussex Flat Owner

    Many thanks for your help and advice which I have found very helpful. I look forward in due course to working with you again.

    Ms R, Bexhill

    Thank you for your support, for all the work you have done, you were great!

    Daphne, Company Director

    Housemartins helped find the best solution and gave us honest and invaluable advice.

    Rebecca, Leaseholder

    Just a short note to thank you for all the support during the last 2+ years, especially in the early days.  Being the professional company that you are you stuck with it. Your response to requests with answers expected ‘yesterday’ was all taken in your stride.  I wish you all the best.


    Once again we can’t thank enough for your beyond the call efforts.

    Paul and Marilyn

    Paying you that £500 was the best £500 I have spent in a very very long time. I would not have recommended you and your company if I had thought any different. You are worth every single penny. Your level of professionalism was outstanding and has helped me with my freeholder struggles tremendously.
