How Chimney Drone Inspections Work
During a chimney drone inspection, an unmanned aerial vehicle is used to take high quality photos and collect data of difficult to reach or completely inaccessible areas.
The Benefits of Chimney Drone Inspections
Drone inspections have recently exploded in popularity, especially in the commercial space. Here are some of the reasons why many commercial building managers and owners are opting for drone inspections:
Hiring a chimney company that does drone inspections is less expensive than setting up the extensive scaffolding needed to access many commercial chimneys.
Drone inspections are quick and simple, which saves the time that it would otherwise take to figure out a way for inspectors to gain roof access and manually inspect the chimney. They are often used during property sales, which can make the transaction finalize quickly and avoid roadblocks.
It is undoubtedly safer for inspectors to use a drone to inspect chimneys than it is to climb onto a roof, especially in cases when the chimney is challenging to access.
High quality, photographic evidence of exactly what is going on with a chimney helps the person having the chimney inspected better understand the state of the chimney and avoid any gray areas between the chimney owner and the inspector regarding the state of the chimney and necessary next steps.
