Richard Flack

Drone operator & owner

“I am a joint owner of properties which needed a roof inspection. Our roofing contractor said he would need scaffolding to do this and then we explored getting a drone survey. This was a situation where we needed a report only, because any work found necessary, has to be negotiated with tenants and could not be started immediately on the same scaffolding set up. A drone survey was a new venture for us and has worked brilliantly. When we decided to go ahead, Richard was quick to respond to an enquiry and equally quick to arrange a visit which suited us.

The survey itself was incredibly efficient. We could ask for any extra detail we wanted. The results were back almost by return and the quality of video and still pictures (which we can zoom) is exceptional.

I would not hesitate to recommend this procedure and this company to anyone. The fees are reasonable and although I didn’t explore the cost of scaffolding, from other work I have had done, I am sure that the cost for a drone is a fraction of the alternative.”


Property Landlord, Hertford

“As Estate Managers, we used Park Lane Drones for roof surveys of large blocks of residential flats. Result was detailed and ideal for our use. Response time was very good.”


SAB Estate Management

“Very knowledgeable and professional Service from Richard at Park Lane Drones. The drone photography was a great way to work out what roof repairs were required on a development of 19 blocks of flats. The service was quick and in line with aviation regulations. The drone survey meant that we did not have to scaffold the whole estate to identify the issues, thus saving high costs to the Client.”

“I contacted Richard after I’d noticed some tiles had come off my roof during some bad weather.  The house is a 3 storey Edwardian property with the original roof, so a roofing survey was prudent but scaffolding would have been expensive and disruptive, so a drone survey seemed ideal.  Richard discussed my requirements, happily answered my questions and came out to do the drone survey, which only took about 20 minutes. The video footage and photos are excellent quality and have allowed me to easily get quotes for roof repairs. Thanks again for your help, great service.”


Roof Inspection Customer

“We were looking for a company to complete a Drone Inspection of the roofs/gutters to two blocks of flats we manage to check to see if there was any damage to roof tiles and gutters surrounding the blocks to cut out the costs of erecting scaffolding.  We found Park Lane Drones from the internet.  What an amazing company, quick to respond to emails, very professional and very competitive price wise.  We were provided with a video of the inspection upon completion.  100% recommend Park Lane Drones.”

“Park Lane Drones took some drone footage for us of Wells-next-the-sea beach in North Norfolk and did a great job. It’s so nice to be able to share some original photography to give our guests and followers an idea of what our local area has to offer! He’s a very nice young man too and we are very happy to recommend this fledgling small business.”


Clevency Cottages

“Prompt efficient service. Didn’t realise how good the result of my roof survey was going to be. A lot cheaper than scaffolding! Glad I chose to fly with Richard. I will definitely use him again.”


Landlord, Roof Survey Customer

“At Bedford Hospital we have to periodically carry out inspections of the building fabric on the site. This has traditionally required the use of specialist contractors (e.g. steeplejacks) or the hire of scaffolding, hydraulic platforms etc. This methodology is costly, has inherent health and safety risks and often needs to be done out-of-hours to avoid disruption to the site. We recently needed to carry out an inspection of our main concrete chimney and rather than going the traditional steeplejack route we gave Park Lane Drones a try. The survey was done in less than an hour and produced high quality images and video that enabled our building team to assess its condition at a fraction of the normal cost. We will certainly be using a drone survey again in the future.”

“After being adivsed of a leak within the roof/loft by an owner of a leasehold property of flats over four storeys high – the Management Company wanted to get roofers to chuck up scaffolding to locate and fix the leak – which would have cost many thousands. Richard answered my first tentative query via text on a Sunday afternoon – and then via email and phone calls. Highly professional and a very nice chap – he has all the CAA Licenses and accreditation. We arranged with regards to weather – wind/rain/light and he carried out the job within a week. The video was uploaded onto ‘Google Drive’ and I was able to view 24 hours later – the link was available to be sent as an email attachment for the Leasehold Block Managenment Company and roofing companies. Many thanks again for your great service – handy for any Leasehold Property Companies who have roof/gutter issues.”


Roof Survey Customer

“The inspection of the roof and guttering proved very useful in determining what state the building was in, the footage highlighted areas that could not be inspected in person. The video we received was detailed and extensive with focused high resolution quality throughout.”
