Customer Review

A full structural survey was undertaken. The report I received was professional and easy to follow. The survey itself was in-depth with conclusions and advice given on any defects that needed to be rectified. Mr Emery was contactable and very approachable. The price was also very competitive and worth every penny. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company if you are in need of a good surveyor.
