Structural Surveys are carried out to determine the condition of a structure and whether any visual defects are present. All engineers at SGL are experienced and qualified to carry out structural surveys and several of our senior engineers are also chartered in at least one relevant area.
We routinely carry out Structural Surveys for domestic clients either directly or via their insurers. We can provide domestic surveys to assist with purchases, sales, insurance claims or just for peace of mind.
All of our reports are hand crafted and word processed by a qualified appointed engineer. We endeavour to provide a detailed and meaningful service and do not issue automatically generated reports of little use or relevance.
Upon appointing SGL to carry out a Structural Survey, one of our administration team would arrange a site visit with one of our qualified engineers at a time which suits you. The engineer would visit the property and carry out a visual survey, both externally and internally subject to access.
General information and the condition of the property would be recorded during the survey and any defects noted. The engineer would then discuss these with the client and inform the client of their possible next steps based on the likely outcome of the survey. The engineer would then hand craft the report highlighting the condition of the property, any deflects found and provide comments and conclusions on whether the defects are likely serious & what we would recommend moving forward to stabilise the property if any serious defects are found.
In addition to domestic surveys, SGL also provide a service to the commercial sector. To find out if we could help you, please drop us a line on the Contact Us page or by telephone or email, available at the bottom of this page.
