From start to finish, Structural Surveys provided an absolutely superb service, comfortably eclipsing everybody we engaged with during the buying process and certainly represented best value for money. Karen and Andrew were a pleasure to deal with and as a first time buyer, they were a beacon of professionalism, going beyond the call of duty to help alleviate my concerns. I would have no hesitation in recommending their service and would be more than happy to act as a point of reference should they need it.

We found your service prompt from initial contact to receiving the final report. The visit by Andrew was informative, unobtrusive and extremely useful. He was friendly, pleasant and kept us fully informed throughout the survey, providing us with his initial thoughts and the reasons for the them. The report was concise, professional, informative and provided us with precisely the information needed and putting our concerns in perspective. I would happily recommend your services to other people.

Andrew Russell contacted me within 5 minutes of me emailing him and our survey was arranged and completed, with report issued within 6 days of first contact. The survey was thorough and detailed. We paid much less than we had thought and it was well worth the money. Andrew was professional and efficient in all emails and phone conversations. We would highly recommend his services and we intend to use him again.
Alison Matthews - October 2016
I thought the service excellent. Initial contact response the same evening, early appointment for survey within a few days, reasonable price and immediate very clear understandable verbal interpretation of findings followed by comprehensive written report with valuable additional references to appropriate building regulations the following day. Our later follow up query also received a very prompt helpful response. Highly recommended.
