Cannot recommend this company enough, they replied within less than 24 hours to my initial enquiry then within less than a week the work was done and they sent a very professional, easy to understand report via email.
Bradley Hollis - June 2020
Really impressed with the excellent service I received from Structural Surveys. Responses to my emails were prompt, helpful and friendly. Report was received less than 24hrs after the survey was carried out - and was thorough, clearly presented and easy to understand. The engineer even provided approximate costings for necessary repairs (at our request). Highly recommended.

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.
Emily Deakon - September 2019
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.
Michelle Connolly - March 2019
Excellent service given by Andrew; he was very quick to respond and offer his expertise. Andrew inspected a house for me that had been flagged up by the Homebuyers survey to have some poor workmanship on an extension and suspected movement. Andrew gave a detailed description of the problem and an honest diagnosis helping us in deciding to proceed with the purchase. Quick, efficient and honest.
