I was very happy with the service. Phone calls were dealt with in a professional and friendly manner. The engineer arrived promptly and explained matters clearly. The report was emailed the same day.

I recently contacted Structural Surveys Ltd to prepare a structural survey of my property detailing the vibration damage caused during the construction of an adjacent housing development. Andrew was extremely helpful and the completed report was excellent and exactly suited to my needs; from my first contact with Structural Surveys to receipt of the finished report took approximately three days. Excellent service all round I would not hesitate to recommend Structural Surveys to friends and family and I will certainly use them again.

Awesome company. We were having an extension on our house. Structural Surveys were fantastic. Can't recommend them enough. The structural engineer came out, measured up and drew up plans perfectly. Brilliant.

I would just like to send my thanks for all of the help I received during the booking of and after my Structural Engineers Report. Jane was incredibly helpful throughout and the ease and speed was exceptional. As a first time buyer the need of such a report was all new to me and I couldn't have been in more capable hands with your team. From a quick general search on Google my report was booked with yourselves within a week and the results sent the following day, couldn't ask for more, many thanks.
