The engineer was booked to undertake the survey within a week so excellent attendance. Although it took a little while to get the calculations and drawing, the quality of work was exceptional with all elements covered for us to enable our build to progress. Excellent value for money - but it wasn't just about that, it was also having a good quality drawing and calculations for our Building Officer which were passed without any issue. Would highly recommend and will use again in the future no doubt.

Out of all the companies that I approached for a quote, this company was the most professional and helpful, with all of my queries being fully answered before signing up for any services. The professional and efficient service was then continued right through to the conclusion when I received my structural survey report. Every member of staff that I had contact with were courteous and friendly. I cannot thank them enough for the ease in which they assisted me.

Having previously had a bad experience with another company I was nervous about selecting a new one. I need not have been concerned. I could not be happier with the service I have received. At the outset, I was contacted very quickly and an appointment to suit me was also achieved within a short space of time. Everything was explained in clear layman's terms and with a comprehensive summary. I felt very confident that I was dealing with an expert and that their assessment would be of great help in dealing with my insurance company. Receiving a very thorough report within 24 hours of the visit was equally impressive. I would be very happy to recommend Structural Surveys Ltd to anyone.

We recently used Structural Surveys on a property we are purchasing. The structural engineer was professional and punctual. His knowledge and experience was clearly evident. We received a thorough, detailed report within 24 hours, which will be invaluable in planning future work on the property.We wouldn't hesitate to use this company again in the future. Many thanks.

I have recently had a full structural survey carried out by this company. Whilst I was not in attendance, the detail and speed of the report was what I needed. Highly recommended.
Luan Thornhill - July 2020
We were delighted with the helpful response when we needed a structural survey on our holiday house in Anglesey. Andrew met us at the house explained what he would do and spent over two hours doing a thorough inspection of the house, crawling through roof spaces and taking measurements and photos.He chatted to us both afterwards and reassured us that the property was sound. The report was with us the next morning. Very many thanks.
