Great service from Jane right from the start, report was great and full of detail. Sent over less than 24 hours after the survey was done. Would definitely use there service again and would recommend it to anyone.
Joe Carey - March 2020
We were delighted with the helpful response when we needed a structural survey on our holiday house in Anglesey. Andrew met us at the house explained what he would do and spent over two hours doing a thorough inspection of the house, crawling through roof spaces and taking measurements and photos.He chatted to us both afterwards and reassured us that the property was sound. The report was with us the next morning. Very many thanks.
Lindsay Entwistle - April 2019
Highly recommended. We had a Homebuyers' Report which threw up some issues. Structural Surveys were extremely swift and we got the report the same day, which saved us a lot of days of worry. Thank you.

The engineer was booked to undertake the survey within a week so excellent attendance. Although it took a little while to get the calculations and drawing, the quality of work was exceptional with all elements covered for us to enable our build to progress. Excellent value for money - but it wasn't just about that, it was also having a good quality drawing and calculations for our Building Officer which were passed without any issue. Would highly recommend and will use again in the future no doubt.

Having been most pleased with a similar survey completed around 4 years ago, I was confident of a good service again and was not disappointed. The whole process was efficient, communications excellent and the report comprehensive. All worked extremely well and I would recommend their services.
Fords of Winsford - March 2019
I was delighted with the service I received from Structural Surveys Ltd. After completing an online form on a comparison site, I was emailed the next morning with a survey quote. An appointment was then arranged for the same week. Two days later the in-depth report was emailed to me. An all-round simple and straight forward experience, a big thank you to the team and especially Jane Miller who answered all my questions and arranged the process for me.
James Pritchard - February 2020
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.
