Roofing Leakage Detection Specialists

Drone Roof Surveys

Our drones are fitted with thermal imaging technology, images taken can reveal roof areas  water is penetrating through cracks or damaged areas, as water retains heat differently than dry surfaces. This allows for the detection of leaks, before they become visible and cause significant damage.

Moisture held by membrane is one of the defects our surveys regularly find for our customers. Our surveyor is looking to highlight any roof defects, not just leaks.

The advantages of using drones for roof leak detection include efficiency, Safety, Accuracy, Cost Effectiveness & Photographic evidence.

Drone roof leak detection offers a non-invasive, efficient, and accurate method for identifying and addressing roof leaks & structural issues helping to prevent further damage and maintain the integrity of the building.

Our Professional Roofing Leakage Inspection Process

Internal Visual Inspection

An internal visual inspection is carried out to assess any water damage caused by your roof leak.

The inspection is documented in an insurance approved format to assist with any insurance claim you may need to make.

Our Internal inspection process can involve the use of thermal imaging & damp meters to assess the damage and start the process of tracing the leak in your roof.

Drone Roof Survey

A drone can be an important tool when tracing the source of a roof a leak.

Our drones are equipped with high definition video, photography and thermal imaging technology.

This technology coupled with the drones optical zoom capabilities allow us to safely, visually inspect your gables, gutters, parapets, pointing, lead flashing, chimneys and more for damage or signs of water ingress.

Tracer Gases

Access permitting, Tracer gases are used to fill the voids of ceilings and narrow roof spaces. The tracer gases rise and are detected using our specialist tracer gas sniffers on the roof – confirming the location of the roof leak.



Flat roof leak detection prices vary depending upon several factors including the size of the roof area and the location of the property. The water leak detection price does not include leak repairs.

Are you trying to find out how do you find out where your roof is leaking?

If you think there may be a leak in your roof then you will want to look at possible entry points for water which include:

  • Cracked / Loose Ridge tiles
  • Missing Pointing between Ridge Tiles, Hip Tiles or at the Verge.
  • Cracked or missing roof tiles
  • Blocked gutters
  • Damaged / Missing Lead Flashing

These are the physical aspects of a roof to visually inspect as they are the areas of a roof that are prone for water leaks.

To find a leak in a flat roof there are a few options, depending upon the construction of the roof space.

There are some common roof leak causes that are specific to flat roofs and many more for pitched roofs.

A smoke test or nitrogen / hydrogen tracer gas test is a great staring point for a flat roof leak investigation.

Depending upon the material of the roof an electronic leak test may be suitable.

Finding a leak in a flat roof can certainly be more troublesome than finding a leak in a pitched tiled roof – particularly without any specialist leak detection equipment.

Do you have a roof leak right now and are wondering are roof leaks covered under home insurance?

The answer is usually Yes, but not always. You will need to check your home insurance policy to find out exactly what you are and are not covered for.

Yes, we can find leaks on plumbing and heating systems,in swimming pools and also structural leaks.

  • Bathroom Leaks; Bathtubs, sinks, toilets and shower leaks all make finding bathroom leaks a job for professional leak detectors.
  • Ceiling leaking; Water leaks through your ceiling could be caused by a structural or plumbing issue.
  • Central heating system leaks; Heating pipes are usually hidden in walls and floors & found using our non destructive trace and access process. Under-floor heating leaks are found using tracer gases, acoustics and thermal (infrared) cameras to pinpoint the leak locations.
  • Structural Leak Detection – We test all likely sources which include windows, doors, visible cracks, roof leaks, chimneys and balconies.
