Abbott Holliday provided excellent service for us, identifying roof spread as the cause of wall cracks in a house, and providing a plan for the fixes. Peter Holliday was accessible and gave us good answers to our anxious questions so I recommend them highly.
Abbott Holliday has provided us with excellent professional advice in relation to a house we are planning to buy. Having experienced subsidence problems with a home we owned many years ago we were particularly keen to have an assessment made of the house where we now plan to live. Their assessment that the house exhibited good structural integrity with no signs of distress was of great help and reassurance to us. The work was carried out in a timely way and we were very pleased with their positive assessment of the property, and with the clear presentation of their findings.
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.
