Drone Inspection

For an additional £30 we can perform an aerial inspection that will be published as part of your snagging survey.

By using a drone, visual data is collected and then reviewed in detail later by the inspector. Our findings and the images taken from your drone inspection are published as part of your snagging report. We can also perform a measured survey including aerial still and video imagery, 2D Orthomosaics and 3D Building Modelling. Additional costs apply for this enhanced service, please make an inquiry for a bespoke quote. Rest assured we can meet your drone inspection needs.


For an additional £300, we can re-visit your home to verify that the issues raised have been rectified correctly.

This follow up is important to ensure that issues are addressed before the builder's warranty period ends. Often builders will not complete such work to the required standard, which is why a re-inspection can be essential. It is also an opportunity to assess the house for any defects that can develop during the settlement period. Most customers who choose a re-inspection experienced serious issues in our initial survey that they are not able to check themselves.

Thermal Inspection 

For an additional £30 we will take and analyse thermal images of all external windows and doors in your home.

Thermal Images offer a non-destructive method of analysing your home using the latest technology. Thermal imaging cameras convert thermal energy readings into visible light. Through the use of thermography our inspectors can detect any number of issues associated with heat loss and poor thermal performance. Use of thermal images can also identify water ingress and brick/rendering faults. All images taken will be published as part of your report.
