Just to say I found your service excellent, appointment booked and attended quickly and report very clear and concise. I was recommended to you and would be happy to recommend you to others.
Steven Kay - February 2019
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.
Ross Thomson - May 2017
We wanted advice about the implications of modifying a retaining wall in the garden. Everybody that we dealt with was helpful, efficient and concise, and their charges very reasonable. I would be very happy to use them for any future projects.
Mark Taylor - September 2018
Fantastic service. Very professional and completed promptly. Thank you.
Sian Ceri-Anne Roberts - September 2017
I recently instructed Structural Surveys to carry out a survey on an old property I was purchasing. He provided us with priceless information, advising us that it was best not to proceed with the purchase. My questions were answered quickly and Andrew has saved us hundreds of thousands of pounds in the long run.
Rachel May - December 2017
The local searches on our prospective property purchase left us feeling very uneasy with references to "potential" subsidence issues. Structural Surveys Ltd offered a very comprehensive service at a very reasonable price and were quick, not only in fitting us in but getting the report to us. We've really had our minds set at ease by the very thorough report we've received and we would highly recommend their service. Thank you to all at Structural Surveys Ltd.
Kevin Rye - October 2016
Survey was arranged promptly and very efficiently directly with the estate agent. The report was compiled and sent electronically the same day as the visit. It addressed all the potential areas of concern I had with the structure in a succinct and easy to digest format. I had a couple of additional questions afterwards which the engineer was happy to answer. A targeted survey on the structure which was much more cost effective than a homebuyers report. Excellent communication.
Roger Cliffe - June 2018
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.
Ben MacDonald - October 2018
I received an email providing contact details and I rang the next day and was able to arrange an appointment which was convenient with us. We liked the fact that when we initially contacted Structural Surveys Ltd, information was provided as to the types of surveys which were available and the reasons given for deciding which type would suit our requirements. The Structural Engineer discussed our needs and then conducted an examination of the property. He took time to explain what the problem was and how it could be resolved. The report was received the same day. The Structural Engineer was very professional, very knowledgable and friendly.
