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.

Steve Green - December 2018
I made an initial enquiry and got a speedy response and an appointment booked at a convenient time for me. Andrew came on time, was thorough and very informative about what he needed to look at. He then took time to explain the outcome and next steps. The report was with me within 24 hours which I think is exceptional service and I was also offered further support witg Andrew recommending a colleague who could help with further services for our build. I would highly recommend using this company.

Keith Holland very much recommends Structural Surveys. I phoned up and spoke to a very nice young lady; we arranged a time for Andrew Russell to come the following day. He arrived early, having phoned and asked if he could come earlier. He was a very nice person. Job done. The following day I, got my report, paid and all over with in 3 days. Very, very satisfied. I would recommend this service to anybody.

Andrew Russell was very efficient at his job, professional. I've given his number to work colleagues and family. And having the report the same day, put my mind at ease. I would definitely use Structural Surveys Ltd again.
Suzanne Murney - November 2016
Very fast turnaround report received next day. Updated on events from office. Thorough survey with estimates on putting things right. Highly recommend.
Linda Stanley - January 2019
I needed a Structural Survey to assess the impact of some settlement at home. I chose Structural Surveys after an on line search which showed their website was most detailed regarding the procedures etc. Customer service upon telephone contact was excellent in being pleasant as well as acknowledging importance of the call. The Engineer, Andrew, arrived on the dot and was most professional and thorough taking over 2 hours to complete the task. The report, which was detailed, arrived within 24 hours and confirmed the reassurance given verbally at the time of inspection. I was most impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending the firm to anyone in need of such a service
