Just a few comments on the structural survey undertaken recently by your company. I was very impressed overall by all aspects of the service. The company was efficient, acted in a timely way, and communications were clear and helpful. The survey was extensive and very detailed, and offered suggested remedies. The Surveyor, Ray Panther, was friendly, approachable, professional, more than helpful, and most importantly, very thorough. My builder was very impressed with the survey, saying it was probably the best he'd ever seen, and, as a retired Site Manager with a major house building company, this was praise indeed. Thanks again for your assistance.

Jane dealt with our initial enquiry, contacting us after we input our details to an online price comparison website. She was very knowledgeable about products that are supplied as well as knowing the surveyors by first name and able to an instant background on them. The survey itself was carried out to a very in-depth and high standard, much higher than previous surveys that we have had for over twice the cost. The survey was presented very nicely in PDF 18 hours after it was completed, this did not incur an extra charge and is standard for the company. Not a recommendation but I forgot to pay my bill before the survey was carried out, complete oversight on my behalf as everything is explained perfectly. The reminder that I got was one of the most polite and possibly the most polite that I have ever received and follow up once payment was complete was again first class. I would not hesitate to hire this company again, swift, professional and polite, what more could you want? Having to have a building survey was a very stressful time & I still can’t believe that this company made it a pleasure.

Superb service from Structural surveys. Report was carried out, written up and returned for scrutiny within 24 hours. Would definitely use again.
John Usher - February 2021
I needed a full structural engineer survey done on a property we were buying. Everyone I spoke to at Structural Surveys Ltd was extremely helpful, accommodating, polite and got back to me as quickly as possible. The report was sent to us the day after the survey- I was really impressed with the quick turnaround. Thank you!

Highly recommended.
Steven Collins - July 2019
The speed of the report being written and returned was excellent; exactly what you need in a stressful situation.
Cheryl Miller - July 2017
I requested a survey following a homebuyer's report. The process was simple, the appointment was the same week and the report was produced very quickly. The report was detailed and put in terms that I could understand. The staff were friendly and helpful. Although not the cheapest, I'm a big believer in that you get what you pay for. An excellent service all round.
David Maples - March 2019
I just wanted to give thanks to Sam and Ray for the service you've provided. Really could not speak more highly and would definitely refer you in future, it's been a pleasure having commissioned you guys! Please do pass on my comments.
Dominic R - June 2019
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.
Louise Singh - June 2020
From the initial phone call to receiving the survey report, the service was absolutely spot on. Jane was incredibly helpful and Andrew clearly knows his stuff, talking to us in terms we understood about the possible causes of 'issues' in our home. The report arrived the next day and was clear and concise with photos and sensible recommendations as to our next steps. It's a 10/10 from us.
