We carry out residential structural survey and commercial survey in Colchester. Colchester is a town which is situated in Essex.
Colchester is apparently Britain 's oldest recorded town having been recorded in AD77 as Camulodunum which was it's pre-roman name. Just off the High Street in Castle Park stands Colchester Castle , a Norman castle dating back to 1076 which is now a museum. As surveyors we love the mix of architecture in the town but in particular there are some fantastic 15th and 16th century buildings around Stockwell Street and also near North Bridge. Of course no visit to Colchester is complete without a trip to Colchester Zoo.
Colchester has many areas offering high quality accommodation including Dedham, Nayland and Kingsford with a variety of property types including Regency, Georgian and modern design.

This ensures that you get expert advice on any issues that we may find with the property we are surveying. All our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - RICS - and are Independent Building Surveyors.

All our survey contain lots of images, clearly showing any problems that we have identified at the property such as woodworm, rising damp or cracking to the walls. We also use sketches in our survey which are aimed at helping you to understand how certain areas are constructed or to help show more clearly a problem that we have identified. You will also find lots of definitions of any building terminology that we may use in our survey, as we firmly believe in 'Plain English' and really want you to fully understand what we are saying in the survey report.
