Benefits of Drone Inspection
BEPG offers cutting-edge drone technology for the assessment and inspection of buildings and other structures, providing businesses with multiple benefits unmatched by traditional inspection methods.
Drone inspections are significantly more cost-effective than manual inspections of buildings and structures, eliminating the need for personnel to physically access often dangerous construction sites with expensive and time-consuming equipment such as aerial lifts, cranes, scaffolding, & other safety equipment.
Drones can be used to inspect dangerous or inaccessible areas, allowing personnel to remain at a safe distance from the structure or building being inspected. This reduces the risk associated with traditional methods of inspection and allows people to safely access information in real-time without putting anyone in harm’s way.
Drone technology enables quick data collection and results generation without lengthy waiting periods to setup complex safety equipment or viewing thousands of photographs, allowing businesses to make timely decisions based on current evidence gathered by drone inspections.
Our drone obstacle avoidance features allow us to fly within inches of a structure for inspection and provide excellent detail and resolution. This increasingly accurate data collection and inspection of buildings and structures, giving businesses and organizations more precise insights into their projects or structures in real time.
Our state-of-the-art drones allow us to perform checks in areas that were previously inaccessible due to conditions that would interfere with typical drone operations such as within GPS-denied environments, around high concentrations of steel and other materials that would impact drone positioning magnetometers, and around high electronic interference areas.
Using drones is significantly less harmful to the environment because it eliminates emissions associated with traditional inspection methods, reducing the inspection’s carbon footprint by using less fuel and resources while making more efficient decisions.

Unlock the power of drones for comprehensive facade inspections. Say goodbye to ladders and access equipment. Our drones provide a quick and efficient way to assess the condition of your building at any height. Our drone pictures enable us to analyze your facade thoroughly.
Stay ahead of the game with facade inspections. Many municipalities now require inspections every 3 to 5 years. Our drone inspections are the perfect solution to fulfill these requirements.
Don’t wait for mandates. Prioritize facade inspections every 3 to 5 years. Plus, our drone inspections are essential after severe weather events, especially for hard-to-reach areas or suspected damage.
Don’t waste valuable resources manually inspecting your solar panels. Harness the power of drones to quickly and easily examine your panels for any damage or problems. With their unmatched maneuverability, drones can effortlessly access tight spaces, ensuring no issue goes unnoticed.
These inspections are vital for maintaining the peak performance of your solar energy system by detecting and addressing potential problems before they worsen. Invest in drone solar panel inspections and maximize the efficiency of your solar panel system today.
Say goodbye to the days of sending someone up a ladder or scaffold to inspect communication towers and other roof-mounted equipment. With drones, we now have a close-up view of the equipment without putting anyone in harm’s way.
Not only do drones allow us to inspect hard-to-reach areas, like the top of a cell tower, but they also help us perform inspections faster and more efficiently. This technology facilitates less downtime, improved safety, and savings in both time and money.
Choose the modern solution for roof-mounted equipment inspections. Switch to drones for a streamlined and secure inspection process.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are your drone pilots licensed?
Yes, all of our drone pilots are FAA sUAS certified drone operators. In addition, our drone pilot consultants are certified thermographers.
Do you have insurance?
Yes, we carry full drone liability insurance.
What types of equipment do you use?
BEPG uses NDAA compliant autonomous drones for inspection and mapping.
What weather can you fly in? How windy can it be to fly?
We cannot fly in fog or precipitation. We routinely fly in temperatures between 10 degrees F and 95 degrees F. Depending on the mission, building, flight parameters, etc., we can usually fly in winds up to 20 MPH.
How long does a drone inspection take?
Inspection time varies based on the size and scope of the project. Typically BEPG will be onsite one to two days.
Can my drone pilot friend fly missions for you? Can I fly my own drone?
Unfortunately, no. We often need to fly very close to buildings we are assessing and use specific flight procedures and equipment to insure we collect the imagery we need.
Can the drone see through windows and walls?
Sometimes the drone can see through windows and glass, although in most cases the reflective nature of glass restricts the drone from seeing into the window. Neither our standard drones nor Infrared drone can see through walls.
Can you fly over cars or people?
Short answer – no. The FAA has very strict requirements regarding flying over people and vehicles. Our team uses visual observers and signage to ensure the area is secure from pedestrian traffic. Pilots keep the drones in sight to anticipate and respond to any potential issues.
Can you fly anywhere?
No. There are FAA restricted air spaces that control if a drone can be flown and / or to what altitude and other conditions. However, if your project is not close to an airport, stadium, or other similar location, we can probably fly your project. BEPG reviews the FAA regulations for each property area and applies for authorizations or approvals.
Can you fly around trees?
Sometimes, although if a tree or other landscaping is between the drone and the building, the images won’t be very good.
What is the difference between an aerial survey and a drone inspection?
An aerial survey presents a birds-eye view of the property, giving the user a good view of roof and overall site conditions. The drone inspection is a 3D scan of the building that builds a detailed mesh of the property. The detailed photogrammic mesh of the property is an excellent tool to communicate and assess existing conditions.
How quickly can I expect results after a property inspection?
Typical turnaround time is 3-5 days, depending on the size of the property. Larger structures may require additional time to process and prepare.
Assessing a Building or Structure after Drone Inspection
After a drone inspection, building owners and managers can expect comprehensive results in just a matter of days. With advanced drone technology and skilled FAA-certified drone pilots, these inspections are efficient and thorough, providing detailed 3D models and high-quality images to BEPG’s expert building envelope consultants to assess any damage or potential issues on a building’s roof or facade, solar panel system, communication towers, or roof-mounted equipment.
These inspections are essential for maintaining the safety, efficiency, and longevity of a property while also saving time and resources in the long run.
