Roof Surveys

Roof Surveys: Fix Issues Before They Become Disasters


Your roof isn't just a structural component; it's a guardian that keeps your home or building safe from the elements. Over time, it faces an onslaught of weather conditions from heavy rain to extreme heat. However, like any guardian, it also needs regular check-ups to ensure it's in peak condition. This is where roof surveys come into play. At Ace Roofing, we've been experts in roofing installations and repairs for over forty years, serving London, Essex, and the South East. In this guide, we'll help you understand the invaluable benefits of roof surveys and why they're an integral part of your roof maintenance strategy.


The Importance of Roof Surveys

Imagine the costs and stress involved in having to deal with a collapsed roof or major leaks. These issues don't occur overnight; they are the result of neglected minor problems that have escalated. Roof surveys can identify these issues early on, making them considerably cheaper and easier to fix.


Early Detection

By conducting a detailed examination of your roofing system, a roof survey can identify a range of potential issues like:

  • Cracked or missing tiles
  • Weak joints and seams
  • Leaks or water pooling
  • Inadequate insulation



Addressing these issues in their early stages is much less expensive than dealing with the aftermath of a major failure. A survey can help you plan scheduled maintenance activities, effectively elongating the lifespan of your roof and saving you substantial amounts of money in the long run.


Typical Pricing

Domestic: £150 - £250
Commercial: £250 - £500


The Ace Roofing Approach: Drone Technology

At Ace Roofing, we utilise drone technology for our roof surveys. Drones offer a level of detail that is often difficult to achieve through traditional methods. Not only does this minimise the need for scaffolding or ladders (reducing risk), but it also allows for a quicker, more efficient process.\


Benefits of Drone Surveys

  • Precision: High-definition cameras capture comprehensive images, providing a 360-degree view of your roof.
  • Speed: Drones can cover large areas in a short amount of time, making the survey process swift and efficient.
  • Safety: The use of drones eliminates the need for physical climbing, reducing the risk of accidents.
  • Accessibility: Drones can easily reach areas that might be difficult or dangerous to access through traditional means.


What to Expect

Once the drone survey is complete, our experienced team analyses the data to create an extensive report. This will include:

  • Detailed photographs and sometimes video footage
  • Identification of potential problem areas
  • Recommended repair or maintenance actions
  • An estimated cost for the recommended work



Roof surveys are not a luxury; they are a necessity. The initial cost of a survey is a small investment compared to the financial burden of major roof repairs or replacement. With over forty years of experience in London, Essex, and the South East, Ace Roofing’s drone-enabled roof surveys offer you a comprehensive, cost-effective, and safe way to ensure the health of your roofing system.
