Aerial Inspection & Surveying Services
Thermal Imaging | Visible Imagings
IR Aerials is a leader in deploying drone technology to help perform structural and infrastructure inspections and surveys. We deploy nothing but the best in today’s UAV technology in an effort to provide you with the highest quality documentation of property conditions while saving you both time and money. We routinely work with architects, engineers, construction companies, roofing companies, utilities and energy providers, commercial property owners, apartment complexes, and many more. We provide services inspecting roofs, facades, capturing construction progress photos, aerial mapping, wildlife surveys, wind turbine inspections, and much more throughout the entire country.

IR Aerials provides detailed moisture mapping inspection services on commercial roof structures using drones (UAV’s) with thermal and visible imagers, moisture meters, and moisture probes throughout the Austin, Texas area. Our goal is to provide you with a good visual representation of the extent of moisture damage in your through non-destructive and minimally invasive testing methods. We regularly inspect new and old Mod-Bit, Gravel BUR, TPO, EPDM, and other roof structures to identify moisture within the roof structure. Our process delivers a great visual representation of where moisture exists and calculates how much damage is present. Once moisture is tested and confirmed, we can mark the roof accordingly and process a detailed report.
We deploy drones with infrared and visible imagers to document and survey walls and facade structures for suspected moisture intrusion and observe external conditions throughout the Austin, Texas area. A thermal facade inspection is effective on concrete masonry, stucco, block walls, and other structures. Through high resolution visible (RGB) imaging, our drones are capable of documenting in detail sealant, grout, window, caulk, and other structural conditions. The resolution allows us to see and photograph hairline cracks and openings in facade structures. Through thermal imaging, we can identify where we suspect moisture to be present within the walls and highlight those areas for further testing to validate our findings.
Our team specializes in deploying drones to help DOT’s and Engineering firms document road and bridge structures in the Austin and North Texas area. We can provide services inspecting bridge decks and roadways for de-laminations using thermal imaging, inspecting bearing pads, and documenting undersides of bridges over waterways. Our team is highly skilled to be able to fly in tight spaces and difficult conditions. Our drone fleet is equipped with custom-built cages to protect the drones from close-quarters operations. Our goal is to replace the need to rent difficult to schedule sniffer trucks and reduce costs by expediting inspection processes, reducing or eliminating the need for lane closure times.
Large solar and wind farms are growing in popularity as our country continues exploring alternative energy sources. Our drone equipment can efficiently perform thermal and visible inspections documenting present conditions of solar panels and wind turbine blades throughout Texas. We are often asked to complete solar field inspections to ensure a newly constructed field is fully operational and working properly, inspect wind turbine blades and solar panels for storm and hail damage, and study solar panels for failing cells. The use of drones to complete these tasks is incredibly efficient and cost-effective compared to alternative inspection methods. Our team is capable of inspecting thousands of acres worth of panels and turbines in a few days.
Utilizing drones with thermal imagers is an ideal resource for effectively performing wildlife surveys for properties in Texas. Our process is unique as it does not disturb the wildlife allowing us to more accurately count the total number of deer on the property and allows us to efficiently survey thousands of acres. Using thermal imaging at night helps us to make sure we don’t miss even the most concealed deer hiding in densely wooded areas. Not only do you get a more accurate population count, but you get a more valuable deliverable as we video the entire inspection process for detailed review and analysis from the office. We work all over the country with both government and private entities providing more accurate data on wildlife populations.
Our drone fleet can inspect and document various types of communication and cell towers in the Austin, Texas area. Whether you are looking to get a 3D model of the tower to reflect what space is available, get a visual understanding of what equipment is on the tower, inspecting the integrity and condition of the structure, or even performing thermal imaging to study for loose connections or failing equipment, we can help. From small remote operations in the oil and gas industry to communications providers with thousands of towers nationwide, we can deploy a team to help keep up with the demands of the industry. Our ability to put together a team that meets your regional needs has the potential to save thousands of dollars on travel expenses.
