Structural Surveys were extremely efficient and super quick, emailing over the survey report the day after the survey. They also sent me cost estimates of the recommended work in the same week. All done at a very reasonable price. Can't fault them, I am a very happy customer.

Awesome company. We were having an extension on our house. Structural Surveys were fantastic. Can't recommend them enough. The structural engineer came out, measured up and drew up plans perfectly. Brilliant.
Mark Goulden - November 2018

All I can say is a big thank you! This has been a fantastic collaboration by all concerned. It's all happened quickly as well. We first visited the Hospice in July when, ironically, it was raining during the long dry spell we had. I wasn't sure at that time whether the building could be retained or would need complete renewal, and the Hospice advised that they'd been trying to fix it for many years. Now it's done and I know the Hospice is very grateful. You have made my life here easier as well, by acting in such a professional manner. - Joe Cartwright BSc MRICS (Senior Projects Coordinator for CRASH)

Fast response to enquiry, booked in within a few days and report emailed the following day, a hard copy came through the post soon after. Very clear report with useful points on urgent repairs needed. My mother-in-law had a few questions and Andrew Russell was always helpful. Will be recommending Structural Surveys Ltd to friends. Thanks again for all your help.

I contacted Structural Surveys Ltd to seek advice on the output of a Valuation undertaken for mortgage purposes, defining the scope for a structural survey. Within days of contacting them, Andrew Russell (Director) came round and undertook the survey, delivering the report the same day, with hard copy following in the post. I found the information provided within the report value for money. Coming from a civil engineering background myself, I found that Andrew conducted himself in an extremely professional manner, investigating all potential avenues that have led to the structural problems. I would not hesitate in recommending Structural Surveys Ltd to anyone in the future.
