Aerial Roof Inspections

IR Aerials conducts aerial roof inspections on residential and commercial roofs by deploying drones with high resolution visible and thermal imagers. Using visible imaging, we can observe hail & wind damage, ponding water, repairs, and other openings on low sloped/ flat roofs, shingle, tile and slate structures. Using thermal imaging, we can identify suspected moisture in most low sloped/ flat roofs. We then perform further physical testing to confirm the presence of moisture in the roof and process detailed reports according to our findings. The processes we implement are useful for insurance claims determining repair or replacement and identifying maintenance concerns. We routinely work with roofing construction companies, engineering firms, roofing consultants, public insurance adjusters, insurance companies, law firms and essentially property owners.

Commercial Building Envelope Inspections

We perform facade surveys deploying drones with high resolution thermal and visible imaging systems to efficiently and effectively document present conditions when other access methods are time or cost prohibitive. Our process is unique as we capture aerial images from 3 distances from the facade in a systematic order that helps us provide an organized deliverable that helps you correlate observed damages with its exact location on the facade. We work with property owners, property management companies, engineers and architects, roofers and consultants to help identify hail damage, failing sealants, observe hair line fractures and opens and much more.

Drone Bridge Inspections

Our team has experience in deploying drones to observe present conditions on bridge structures. We provide added value to present inspection methods by helping to document parts of the structure that are otherwise not observable from the ground. Using alternative observation resources such as lifts can be costly and incredibly time consuming to deploy. After observing the structures documented, you can then focus your physical inspection efforts on areas we observed any potential problems or issues that require further investigation. We perform this inspection systematically, capturing 4k aerial video footage of each structure to ensure the deliverable is observable. We work with private road way companies, construction companies, state departments of transportation (DOT’s), military/ government operations and more.

Aerial Construction Progress Photos

IR Aerials provides consistent aerial photography and videography services for construction companies looking document construction progress for the purpose of keeping clients up to date on progress, legal purposes, creating marketing content, performing measurements to validate construction in the field is completed accurately, and more. We strive to provide you with consistency in our deliverables, making it easy to view a good side by side comparison of the progress over a period of time. We routinely work with builders, contractors and construction firms, engineers and architects, roofers, consultants and much more.

Aerial Mapping

Drone technology today has become a huge resource for companies in need of high resolution aerial mapping and surveying. Pairing this technology with other surveying methods provides an opportunity to fill gaps and cut costs. We can provide you with interactive 2D and 3D site maps including measuring tools, elevation surveys and even plant health evaluations, all with as little as 3 cm to 5 cm of accuracy. Paired with other survey methods, we can help fill in the gaps with accurate. We’ve found these services are valuable for architects, surveyors, civil engineers, ranchers, utility companies, oil and gas companies and many others.

Wind Turbine Inspections

IR Aerials conducts thorough inspections of bridge structures helping companies observe structural conditions of difficult to reach and view areas. Our process is more detailed, thorough, safer and much more efficient compared to alternative methods to inspect bridges. We have designed a cage for our drones that we specifically use for inspecting bearing pads, which in your standard biennial inspections, are not easily observed from the ground. The drone and cage used gives us just enough of a perspective to observe the bearing pads and surrounding structures that typically only give you a few inches of headroom below the deck of the bridge. Documenting the entire process in 4k video footage, we can then review the condition and report according to our findings by partnering with an engineering group.

Who benefits from our Drone Bridge Inspection Services?

Private road way companies, construction companies, state departments of transportation (DOT’s), military/ government operations and more.
