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.

Structural Surveys was a great choice when my husband and I needed a survey carried out quickly. Their report was thorough and gave us a sense of security by providing information about the structural integrity of our first home. We would highly recommend them to anyone buying a home as the service was efficient and the communication was excellent.

I can highly recommend this company for structural surveys. We were able to arrange a survey very quickly and the report we received was very thorough. The structural engineer (Chris) was very nice and easy to deal with when he came to complete the survey.

I was happy with the service I received from Structural Surveys. The quote I received for a Full Structural Survey was competitive and when I made enquiries I received a prompt, professional response. The report I received was delivered the day after the survey had taken place (a week after my initial enquiry).

I would definitely recommend Structural Surveys Ltd, because they were professional, friendly and made the whole experience as easy as possible. The report was of a high standard and was emailed and posted very quickly. Brilliant service all round.

Claire Jones - November 2017
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.
