Terry attended my property in February 2023, I have been meaning to leave a review since then… that I have remembered to do so 3 months later should be testimony as to how impressed I was with the standard of service he offered.
Terry spent a couple of hours or so thoroughly inspecting my property, though his experienced eye quickly identified the minor issues that were causing what I thought would be a major problem.
He took the time to explain his process (always interesting to hear an expert talk about their work) and also how damp issues arise, and the actions that can be taken to minimise them.
Within a few days, I had a really detailed, comprehensive report that I can use to address the issues he identified, and also cite if anyone tries to suggest that more extensive work is required.
I’m confident that the price paid for the survey will be saved by only having to do what is necessary.
Also, Terry was excellent company, thoroughly nice, decent man, and I hope to run into him again (we live very close to each other).
Highly recommended.

Dear Terry,
I have verbally informed the vendor through there estate agents of your findings, namely cracks in chimneys inoperative chimney vents blocked air bricks and painted external render which will not allow the building to breathe so trapping moisture inside the structure. These previously unknown findings reveal substantial costs, we are requesting a small price reduction of £5000 based upon your findings / report, thanks again
