I highly recommend Andrew Russell and Structural Surveys Ltd. I initially booked him because he looked like the most highly qualified structural engineer I could find. Upon meeting him, it was apparent that he was very knowledgeable, and also a very pleasant bloke, who took time to explain his findings in a much detail as I'd like. He was always available to contact to discuss any extra questions that I had and his report was delivered in record time. It put my mind at rest to have an expert opinion on the structural issues with my house and now I have a clear plan on how to deal with them. I wouldn't hesitate to use Structural Surveys Ltd again.

I've used this company twice now and they're great. The report's delivered the next day and it's both thorough and easy to understand. The surveyor was only too happy to answer any queries and gave me some really good advice about replacement windows and my drains, saving me a lot of potential problems. I would recommend them.

I thought the service excellent. Initial contact response the same evening, early appointment for survey within a few days, reasonable price and immediate very clear understandable verbal interpretation of findings followed by comprehensive written report with valuable additional references to appropriate building regulations the following day. Our later follow up query also received a very prompt helpful response. Highly recommended.
Janet Conway - April 2018
Really friendly and efficient. The structural inspection we needed was arranged within a few days, and the report was emailed the day after the inspection. The quality of the report was excellent, with supporting photographs and clear explanation of risks. I would be very happy to use Structural Surveys again.

Structural Surveys were able to visit my property and provide a report within a week of contact, which I was very grateful for as I had no idea how serious the problem was. The structural engineer was very professional and the cost was quite reasonable. I received an emailed report on the same day, followed by a printed copy in the post, the following day.

Excellent service! Jane from the office is so professional and friendly, ready to answer any questions, email responses were super quick too. Andrew, the structural engineer, was really thorough and sent us very detailed report - and it was sent the same day as the survey, I was really impressed. He actually offered really honest advice on the house we were interested in buying. Highly recommended, we would definitely use them again if needed.
Imran Chaudhary - September 2019
The company came up in an online search and were very knowledgeable and clear about the right survey to meet our needs. The survey was booked, carried out and reported on really quickly which was what we needed. Both the surveyor and office staff were also really friendly and easy to deal with. We'll be using again if the need ever arose and recommend them without a doubt.

Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. You put our minds at ease and provided an easy to understand report very speedily.
Vikki Kettle - February 2017
From my initial contact to receiving the report was just a couple of days. The report was really easy to understand. Jane in the office was very helpful and a pleasure to talk to. Would recommend without hesitation.
