Peter Holliday provided promptly and comprehensively two reports that supported our legal position for a rebuild of our conservatory. Professional service.
I have used Abbott Holliday for number of projects and found them to be professional, meticulous and prompt. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services
Abbott Holliday responded to my request for a structural survey quickly and met the timescales that they outlined @ the outset. The surveyor who undertook the work was knowledgeable and helpful. The report covering the inspection was understandable and focused on the key issues. The cost was not unreasonable.
We were looking at an end of terrace mid-war property but the building society-appointed surveyor classed it as unmortgageable due to subsidence as evidenced by cracks visible in the internal staircase. Peter Holliday examined and reported that there was no subsidence but that the flank wall was beginning to bow out and recommended the insertion of two steel rods welded to lengths of perforated metal strips which were in turn fixed to the first floor joists. Cast iron "spreader plates" were positioned over the steel rods where they protruded through the flank wall and bolted in place. Total cost of materials approximately £250! Without Peter's advice we undoubtedly would not have bought the property, with which we are now very pleased.
