If you’re looking at something different, you could check out the possibilities of pre-fabricated buildings, constructed in a factory to your specifications and delivered on-site.

To understand more about the different types of surveys available and what they offer, please visit call us today. One of the team members will be more than happy to chat through your circumstances and offer free impartial advice as to how best to proceed.

A survey from Carpenter Surveyors will tell you a great deal more and could save you thousands in the long run – especially in older properties, or when you want to make alterations. It may also enable you to negotiate the price.
