Great level of communication from Andrew. Quick response to any emails that I sent. Arranged appointment within a week and got the report next day, excellent service. Good value for money, we arranged to meet up at the property, Andrew went through all the areas of concern and estimated costs to put them right. Could not ask for more. Next day received detailed report which was easy to understand and had all that I needed to renegotiate with the sellers.

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.

My buyer's valuers thought there may be some movement to my conservatory and insisted on a full structural survey. Structural Surveys was exceptionally professional and friendly and the appointment was set up within a few days. Structural Engineer who attended site was very reassuring and thorough in the examinations and I received the report that same afternoon! Excellent service. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Margaret Kendall - October 2018
We needed a structural report carrying out at short notice. Structural Surveys managed to do this within a week and even gave a verbal opinion on the same day. The report arrived by email the next morning, as promised (Saturday). It was very detailed and included remedial action needed and provided us with the confidence to go ahead with the purchase. I have spoken to Structural Surveys a couple of times since receiving the report and they have been very helpful. I would definitely recommend using them and we will use then for our next purchase.
