After the query on search website I received a prompt email from this company listing what they could do for me with prices. I hadn't expected to go with them as they were far from me and I hadn't telephoned them myself. The surveyor was knowledgeable and professional. Took time to understand the history of the issue. Report received the day following the survey. They offered the best price for what I wanted of all the people I contacted for a quote.

The structural report was exactly what I was looking with insight into not just the current structure but also to potential improvement I was considering after the purchase. for in a timespan that impressed.

Thank you for your kind email this morning with the structural report. Much appreciated for the great service. Andrew was really helpful and explained everything really well. Would use your services again and will recommend to friends and family too.

Very efficient and professional from start to finish. The report is thorough and understandable and was delivered the day after the survey.

The survey was conducted rapidly and may prove to be of great value as the information sent to me described some severe structural problems that could reduce the chances of reselling the property. I may well have purchased the house without being aware of those problems if I had not had the survey done. The actions by Structural Surveys were efficiently carried out and could have saved me a lot of money in the long run.

We needed a structural assessment of a house that we're buying to supplement the initial survey. Booked quickly and report emailed within 24 hours with clear explanations of what needed doing. Very happy and would definitely recommend.

I needed a structural engineer for a mortgage report doing ASAP. Luckily I got in touch with Structural Surveys Limited. They came out to the property within a couple of days and I had the report back the same day. Fantastic service, great communication, highly recommended.

Fast response to enquiry, booked in within a few days and report emailed the following day, a hard copy came through the post soon after. Very clear report with useful points on urgent repairs needed. My mother-in-law had a few questions and Andrew Russell was always helpful. Will be recommending Structural Surveys Ltd to friends. Thanks again for all your help.
