Hear what some of our customers are saying about us.
I have worked with Andy on a number of projects thus far, including some very difficult issues with vested interests from a number of directions. Andy is always willing to go the extra mile to ensure a project moves forward and then diligently supervises the contractors to ensure the works are finished to an appropriate standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and have already done so to some of my colleagues in other offices.
We contacted Andy regarding a trespass dispute with our neighbours. We required an expert opinion on the nature and quality of a dormer extension that contravened the party wall line at the top of our property.
Andy produced us a very thorough report supported by photographic evidence that detailed the structure and quality of the build. It captured all the elements we had major concerns with as well as highlighting problems with the build that could impact us ongoing. The report formed the basis for our discussions via our solicitor with the neighbours. He produced this very quickly and for a very reasonable cost.
Andy is a pleasure to deal with and I’d fully recommend his services based on our experience.
Andy did a very thorough survey and report of the house we are buying. We were very pleased with his work as it identified significant issues and allowed us to estimate the cost of the improvements needed.
We have used Andy’s services in varying capacities for 5 years now, this from general building surveying advice, general property advice, defects analysis and general Contract Administration. In that time, Andy has always provided us with solid and practical guidance in a concise and diligent manner. He has a friendly and pragmatic approach and is a pleasure to work with.
Sought independent advice regarding damp problem. Comprehensive and concise report produced which was subsequently used to direct building works carried out. Very professional service.
