While traditional methods like climbing or scaffolding provide access to chimneys, they can be time-consuming, expensive, and even dangerous. This is where drones emerge as a game-changer for chimney inspections and fault finding. Equipped with high-resolution cameras, drones offer several advantages:

  • Safety first: Drones eliminate the need for personnel to physically climb tall or unstable chimneys, drastically reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.
  • Extensive reach: Drones can effortlessly navigate difficult angles and confined spaces, providing detailed visual access to the entire chimney structure, including the crown and hard-to-reach areas.
  • Detailed data collection: High-resolution cameras capture close-up footage and photos of cracks, spalling bricks, creosote buildup, and other potential issues, enabling accurate assessments and informed repair decisions.
  • Increased efficiency: Drone inspections are significantly faster than traditional methods, saving time and minimizing disruption for homeowners.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Compared to scaffolding or specialized equipment, drone inspections are often more affordable, making them a cost-effective choice for property owners and chimney sweep professionals.

If you have a problem with your chimney and you are not sure what may be causing it. A drone survey may be a worthwhile investment.
