Best Drone Facade Inspection Services in Dubai

A stunning facade adds to the aesthetics of a property. If you own a high-rise building with a major facade structure, you need to get regular inspections done for it to ensure that it stays aesthetically pleasing for a long period of time. 

Land Sterling offers drone-based facade inspection services for commercial and residential real estate. Facades for high-rise buildings can often get damaged because of environmental factors. The accurate inspection of a facade helps determine the exact location and the extent of the damage.

Our drone-based facade inspections offer you a faster and safer way to learn about any major or minor facade defects. With our facade inspections, you get to learn about the facade damages that you need to fix in real-time.     

Why is Facade Inspection Important?

The facade of a building is one of the most important components of your property’s infrastructure. Poorly built or damaged facades can lead to potentially harmful damages. These damages can be of physical or financial nature. 

This is what makes it important for property owners to learn about the existing and potential facade issues. With a proper facade inspection, you can have peace of mind that the building is safe to use for residents. Regular facade inspections also help maintain the market value of your property. 

Why Choose Our Drone Facade Inspection Services?

Drone-Based Facade Inspections

We utilise the latest drone technology for conducting facade inspections. The use of drones enables us to deliver real-time results to you in a short amount of time. With our drone-based inspections, you won’t have to worry about investing in manual labour for facade inspections. 

Faster Inspections

In most cases, manual facade inspections can take up to 30 days. And inspections for taller buildings can take even longer. With our drone-based facade inspections, you won’t have to wait for months to get the inspection report. Drone inspections take much less time when it comes to doing facade inspections.

Real-Time Monitoring

With our drone-based facade inspections, you can keep track of the inspection process in real time. The automated mode of operation of drones is a more viable solution for facade inspections as it facilitates real-time monitoring of the facade inspections.  

Flexible & Efficient Services

Our drone-based facade inspection services are flexible in that the drones can easily reach even the tough-to-reach facade spaces. This is what makes our facade inspection services better and more efficient than the traditional facade assessment means. 

Thorough Facade Inspection Using Advanced Drones Technology

Facade Inspection is the process of verifying the integrity of a building structure and ensuring safety for its occupants and people within its vicinity by using drones. Carrying out a physical inspection at a busy construction site can be dangerous and raise various safety concerns. 

GIS Drones Facade Inspection platform, operated by a one or two-man team, aims to slash the time taken to a few days using AI to mark Façade defects. With industrial drones to carry out inspection works; GIS Drones can easily acquire precise and accurate visual data; the data collected can be used for many purposes.

1) Building Facade Inspection

Conventional building inspection would require the erection of scaffolding or robe access, which can be time-consuming, costly, and risky.

The use of drones would eliminate those problems. In addition, by identifying potential building issues through thermal imaging analysis, faults can be rectified accordingly.

2) Rooftop Inspection

Maintenance inspection on high structures such as towers, roofs, and bridges incur extra costs and cause issues of access arrangement and personnel working at height.

Drone inspection provides the fastest and easiest solution to acquire details of the structures; the engineer on the ground can receive real-time footage during the process.

Automating and Digitising Building Facade Inspections

GIS Drones Facade Inspection platform can detect over 30 building and facade defect types, including cracks, corrosion, and paint peeling. In addition, defects can be identified on surfaces such as concrete, cladding, glass, or metallic surfaces.

Frequently Asked Questions

GIS Drones use machine learning algorithms to speed up the process of anomaly identification and provide an overview of defects on web-based dashboards. Automated generated reports in various formats are also available for download, highlighting issues found on a building in a fraction of the time compared to current manual inspection processes.

Most solutions in the market are manual and require expensive scaffoldings, robes, or cranes. The rare few that engage drones are still very manual, requiring manual inspection of the collected images and data. GIS Drones automate the interpretation of the data and reporting through automated workflows reducing the time taken by over 80%. As a result, our clients have experienced over 50% cost savings and, most importantly, mitigated safety challenges with work-at-height.

Schedule a call with GIS Drones to help you with the end-to-end process and provide you with a detailed inspection report for your maintenance team. Is there a project reference that I can refer to? Contact us so we can share real-life case studies of the Facade Inspection at

GIS Drones prices are affordable. After conducting market research, we are confident that the total drone inspection cost will be at least 50% less than the manual inspection cost.

It depends on the complexity of the building and the number of images. For example, a building with 12 floors will take approximately 2 days of drone inspection and 5 days to provide the final inspection report.

You will receive an inspection report that detects 30 types of anomalies and defects in the building exterior. The anomalies will be identified according to their severity level and marked accurately and graphically on the building faces for easy identification. And you will have access to the platform 24/7.
