Cannot recommend this company enough, they replied within less than 24 hours to my initial enquiry then within less than a week the work was done and they sent a very professional, easy to understand report via email.

Many thanks for sending me the report on the structural survey so promptly. I was very satisfied with the whole process from arranging an appointment to receiving the report. My reason for requesting a survey was to confirm that a small extension to my house is structurally sound and stable after some previous remedial work. Your survey confirmed this to be the case, which gave me professional assurance and will also be most helpful in the future sale of the house. I would have no hesitation in recommending Structural Surveys to an interested party.

I found Structural Surveys to be very helpful and I was very impressed with their knowledge and professionalism. Mostly though, I would like to thank you for your efficiency and the timely manner in which I was presented with both digital and hard copy of the finished report.

Great service from both Jane and Ray. our first contact with the company came from Jane on the same day that I sent an email requesting their services. Jane was very helpful, pleasant and gave me the feeling that she knew exactly what she was doing. After a discussion of our requirements she was able to book us a visit from Ray within a week. Ray was very thorough and professional especially in these Covid times. As promised the report arrived the next morning and we were able to arrange corrective work required. I have no hesitation in recommending the company, excellent service and competitive price.
