Top job from a top bloke, had Structural Surveys in relation to a mature tree that has caused and is causing damage to my property, I needed an expert opinion on the reason. I had applied for permission to fell the tree from local council. Hopefully with the aid of the considered report and findings I am hopeful for a positive result and I will soon be able to secure and make safe my property once more. Many thanks to Structural Surveys for their professional and personal support in this problem, very prompt and diligent, in the fact the engineer arrived 30 minutes before appointed time and report ready by the next day. Many thank hoping that I can uncross my fingers and the council concur with the excellent report.

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
My buyer's valuers thought there may be some movement to my conservatory and insisted on a full structural survey. Structural Surveys was exceptionally professional and friendly and the appointment was set up within a few days. Structural Engineer who attended site was very reassuring and thorough in the examinations and I received the report that same afternoon! Excellent service. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Very professional company, would definitely recommend
Jackie Broadhurst - April 2021
Survey was arranged promptly and very efficiently directly with the estate agent. The report was compiled and sent electronically the same day as the visit. It addressed all the potential areas of concern I had with the structure in a succinct and easy to digest format. I had a couple of additional questions afterwards which the engineer was happy to answer. A targeted survey on the structure which was much more cost effective than a homebuyers report. Excellent communication.
