Hiring a tradesman for a structural inspection or appraisal

Problems with the structural integrity of your property are not just expensive to repair but can also be extremely dangerous. When it comes to inspecting or appraising your property’s structure, it is important that you have a highly rated specialist for the job. Finding a specialist like this is much easier through Plentific, which hosts information on over 75,000 tradesmen across the UK. The Plentific website can quickly generate a bespoke contact list of the best specialists in your local area that offer the services you require, complete with convenient access to customer ratings and reviews to help you compare your options.

What do you need to know about structural inspections or appraisals?

You can never afford to ignore a potential problem with the structure of your property. If you have noticed movement or structural defects, such as cracks in your wall or a sagging ceiling, you should have your property inspected as soon as possible. You will also need your property assessed if it has recently suffered from environmental damage, such as flooding, or accidental damage. Structural inspections and appraisals are distinct from building surveys, which are more to do with a property’s interior. Following the inspection or appraisal you should be given a substantial report detailing any issues with your property and recommending appropriate action.

If the problem is confined to one area you will need a ‘specific structural engineer’, while a ‘general structural engineer’ will look at your entire property. You must be absolutely sure of your hire’s qualifications and experience. An added bonus if if they list MIStructE, FIStructE, MICE or FICE after their name, as this marks them as a chartered engineer. They may also belong to a national body such as the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors or the Institute of Structural Engineers, which enforce high standards for their members. Remember to take the time to look at reviews from the previous clients of each of your choices. These should indicate the quality of the specialist’s work and how useful their assessments have been.

The price of having a structural inspection or appraisal done will usually depend on the size of your property and the nature of your problem, but on average you should be charged around £270. Getting a quote should be free over the phone, so collect as many as you can to compare. Always keep in mind how crucial the maintenance of the structure of the your property is, so never consider scrimping on price and hiring someone who cannot offer the expertise you need. Given the importance of a structural engineer's advice it is also important that they have professional indemnity insurance.
