Why have a Building Survey?
Having a Building Survey is something we always recommend as it will save you time and money.
We really do genuinely mean this. Why? - find out by reading on...
Having a building survey will give you peace of mind to ensure you don’t purchase a problem property. Why? Because our building experts will inspect the property from chimney top to foundations externally and internally and provide a survey report. The survey will describe any property issues, give solutions and costs so you can use this to negotiate the asking price.
Great value for money Surveys
We truly believe that our Full Structural Surveys are great value for money particularly when compared against a Homebuyers Report or a Mortgage Valuation (which is not a survey at all). Our Structural Surveys, we believe, our the best building surveys money can buy as they:-
Hundreds of Survey Photos
Included in our survey reports are literally hundreds of high-resolution digital photos taken by our Building Surveyors when carrying out a full structural survey. Included also are aerial view 360 photos too which are a great way of showing you hard to reach areas such as roofs and valley gutters and any associated problems.
We have commissioned unique survey sketches over the many years of providing full structural building surveys to help our clients understand property problems or features. We include lots of survey sketches within our reports together with definitions of any technical terms to ensure you are fully informed regarding any property issues.
Latest Survey Equipment
To ensure accurate readings and analysis of property issues all our Building Surveyors use the latest surveying equipment. For example our Surveyors use thermal imaging cameras in their assessments as well as the latest damp resistance meters during their inspection of your property.

Meet your Surveyor at the property
On the day of the survey we always recommend coming along to meet your Building Surveyor at the property. Our Building Surveyor will be able to discuss any concerns or property issues you have together with giving advice if you are planning to amend or extend the property.
3D House Models and Layout Plans
If you are planning on extending the property or amending the floorplan our Surveyors can provide you with a 3D model of your house and layout plans to help you . A 3D model of your house will aid you to visualise any changes saving you time and money as well as ensuring your builders are on the same page as you.
3D models will help You
Alterations and Extensions
Visualise the design and ensure you make the best decision with a 3D model.
Adaptations to building designs as projects evolve
Often as a building project takes shape adaptations of the design are required to be addressed - this is where a 3D model will help with the planning of any amendments.
Building works are costly and time-consuming a 3D model will help limit expensive later alterations.
