What to expect

Intelligence

Our survey is designed with you in mind. Jargon free, it clearly highlights any problems and potential ones; providing you with a clear way forward for remediation. And because we can guarantee to deliver our report within 24 hours of the survey date, you can begin any required remedial works almost immediately – minimising cost, disruption and further damage. Where repairs to the fabric are considered appropriate, our philosophy is to use minimal intervention and to retain as much of the existing fabric as is possible.

Independence

As one of only a select few of independent surveyor members of the Property Care Association you can be assured that our reports are totally unbiased and offer independent advice upon which you can base an informed decision. We are also members of The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings.

Insight

With over 20 years experience in property surveying and specialist remedial works, we have undertaken surveys in properties as diverse as medieval timber framed buildings through to modern flats. This experience provides us with enviable insight to ensure we deliver a holistic approach that is proven, results oriented and cost effective.
