Thermal Imaging Roof Survey

Mast/drone thermal imaging surveys for the built environment.



One of the most common applications for aerial thermal imaging is for the discovery of areas affected by heat loss, usually in locations otherwise inaccessible. Our drones conduct technical inspections using specialist, purpose-built thermal imaging cameras that are an ideal solution for surveying roofs, large buildings and wide areas.

All of our pilots hold valid PfCO’s granted by the Civil Aviation Authority, meaning they abide by any laws and suitability’s set out by current UK legislation – this extends to congested areas or when environmental conditions exceed safety parameters. In these situations, we can operate our 102ft vehicle mounted pneumatic mast – capable of surveying a building 7 stories high – to ensure deliverables can always be met.

Key Points

  • Find air leakage and locate areas of heat loss

  • Accurately detect and locate areas of missing or damaged insulation

  • Identify variation in the building fabric against design specifications

  • 102ft mast available for congested areas

CAA Approved

iRed has ‘Permissions for Commercial Operations’ (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority (id No. 2082) to operate unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) commercially.


After the successful completion of a thermal imaging survey, clients will receive an in-depth report written by a BINDT (British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing)  accredited PCN Category 2 thermographer. The report, comprised of thermal imagery and detailed analysis, will outline any potential issues or areas of concern.

Thermal imaging reports are delivered electronically, and can be expected within a week of survey completion.*
