Residential Structural Surveys Devon
Whether you require a structural survey for peace of mind, or as a condition of your mortgage application, our expert advice will prove invaluable to you.
We can either look at a specific defect to the property or carry out a full structural survey. We can also offer just a verbal report, prior to an auction.
Our structural engineers in Devon have experience of both traditional and non-traditional forms of construction, including precast concrete houses, steel framed system built houses or timber framed houses.
Our expert structural reports are based on a detailed, non-intrusive, visual examination of the property. However, for non-traditional forms of construction, it is often necessary to carry out further intrusive investigation and testing, and we can advise on this.

Do You Need A Structural Survey?
Nowadays, the term structural survey isn’t used by RICS Chartered Surveyors anymore because it doesn’t accurately reflect what a proper building survey is. However, because building surveys were once widely known as structural surveys, many people think they need a structural survey when they actually require a building survey.
A structural survey specifically reports on the structural strength and durability of a building or structure. These reports are rarely necessary for assessing the safety of new builds or even old residential properties, unless you or your Chartered Surveyor have real concerns about the structural stability of the home you’re thinking of buying.
Structural reports in Devon are, however, sometimes required to obtain building control approval. Our network of surbeyors can also provide calculations and structural drawings for projects such as:
- Altering or removing walls
- Demolishing a chimney breast
- Loft and cellar conversions
- Solar panel installations
- Underpinning floors
