I recently required structural calculations for the insertion of a beam to facilitate the installation of bi fold doors. I contacted two other companies - still waiting for one to come back to me (despite a follow up call) and the other just had an answerphone. Structural Surveys answered immediately, arranged a visit within a week and I had my calcs within a few days. Great service - my advice - don't waste time with anyone else!

The inspection was carried out promptly and the report was very detailed. Jon even took the time to speak to us on the phone, answering all our questions. He was very patient and professional. We thoroughly recommend this company!

We were dealt with promptly and in friendly fashion. Requests and questions were seen to almost immediately. A visit for the survey was arranged quickly and carried out efficiently, with a full and helpful Report produced within 24 hours. I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm for anyone needing any kind of structural survey.

Very professional from start to finish, kept to timescale and quoted price, gave excellent feedback on what was required to out-sort our problem with a part removed chimney breast. Would not hesitate to recommend Structural Surveys.

Andrew Russell was very efficient at his job, professional. I've given his number to work colleagues and family. And having the report the same day, put my mind at ease. I would definitely use Structural Surveys Ltd again.
Suzanne Murney - November 2016
Very thorough survey with the surveyor willing to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. The report was factual and informative, not only detailing faults but providing the routes to solutions.

Thank you for this - pleasantly surprised to have such a comprehensive report back under 24 hours! We have been really impressed with Structural Surveys - from yourself, Crystal and Ray who came out to survey yesterday - it's all been so straight forward and professional. I appreciated Ray's professionalism and courtesy with relation to the current Covid restrictions too! Wishing you and Structural Surveys all the best for this year and we're more than happy to provide recommendations!

I would just like to send my thanks for all of the help I received during the booking of and after my Structural Engineers Report. Jane was incredibly helpful throughout and the ease and speed was exceptional. As a first time buyer the need of such a report was all new to me and I couldn't have been in more capable hands with your team. From a quick general search on Google my report was booked with yourselves within a week and the results sent the following day, couldn't ask for more, many thanks.
Stephanie Harland - April 2019
Andrew Russell contacted me within 5 minutes of me emailing him and our survey was arranged and completed, with report issued within 6 days of first contact. The survey was thorough and detailed. We paid much less than we had thought and it was well worth the money. Andrew was professional and efficient in all emails and phone conversations. We would highly recommend his services and we intend to use him again.
