What will the Roof Survey give me?

This specialized service is designed to give you a detailed understanding of the status of the roofing on any property you’re considering, whether it’s for purchasing or leasing.

A roof plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity of a building. It shields the interiors from weather elements, contributes to energy efficiency, and significantly impacts the overall property value. But how can you be sure of the roof’s condition? That’s where our Roof Survey comes in.

At Flettons, our Roof Survey provides a comprehensive analysis of the current state of a roof. We deploy cutting-edge drone technology for the inspection to ensure an unbiased, accurate, and thorough examination. With a bird’s-eye view, our drones capture high-resolution images that enable us to identify any signs of wear and tear, potential leaks, or other structural issues that may need immediate attention or could pose problems in the future.

Leaseholders, in particular, find our Roof Survey invaluable. In many lease agreements, the leaseholder can be hit with substantial unexpected charges due to roof damage or deterioration. With our Roof Survey, you can avoid these surprise expenses. You’ll be armed with a detailed account of the roof’s condition before signing any agreement, enabling you to negotiate repairs or better terms, thus avoiding the burden of excessive costs related to faulty roofs.

In essence, our Roof Survey gives you:

  1. A detailed analysis of the roof’s current state,
  2. The ability to negotiate for a better deal based on facts,
  3. Peace of mind knowing that there won’t be any hidden, costly surprises.

Whether you’re a property buyer, a potential leaseholder, or an existing property owner, our Roof Survey offers a proactive approach to building maintenance and strategic investment for your peace of mind. Take the guesswork out of roof condition – Trust Flettons
