From our very first conversation with Silverstone we found them extremely helpful and professional. They provided a quick turnaround on the building survey report and gave us clear and sound advice which enabled us to make an informed decision about the house we were buying. It's rare to find a company which delivers on all of its promises but Silverstone certainly did and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.

Sam Moat

Silverstone were very helpful when we appointed them to survey our potential new house. They provided a comprehensive report which was in simple layman's terms so that we could follow it! Furthermore they offered to manage the repairs that arose from the report. I found their service exemplary and would thoroughly recommend them.

Helen Humphries

We appointed SRS to undertake a building survey when purchasing our detached family home in Shotley Bridge last year. Their report was very thorough and the service we received was both professional and efficient. We would happily recommend their services to others.

Mr & Mrs Husband

Thanks to Silverstone we were able to complete the purchase of our semi-detached house in Durham with confidence. We were unaware of a number issues which they identified when carrying out the HomeBuyer report. However their advice was invaluable and gave us real peace of mind. We are not intending to move any time soon but if we ever do we will certainly use them again.

Mr & Mrs Leonard

I made contact with Silverstone to get advice in respect to an old farmhouse which I was interested in buying. The property required modernisation and they were able to make a number of recommendations which have helped me enormously. Overall they are a very approachable firm who do exactly what they say they will do and their advice has saved me a lot of time and money over the past 12 months.

Mr S Thompson

Very efficient, speedy, no-nonsense service - would certainly recommend to others. Everyone I had contact with were very friendly & helpful. 

Judith Bennison

I have recently used the services of Silverstone Residential Surveys to undertake a house survey in Durham.

Silverstone completed the survey promptly providing a comprehensive assessment of the property in question. They identified some significant issues that would need to be addressed prior to a purchase.

In addition they were very proactive in explaining the key issues helping us to make a highly informed decision on whether to proceed.

I found their local property knowledge and expertise invaluable.

I would have no hesitation recommending Silverstone. Their professional standards have been exemplary and provided peace of mind, and all conducted in a very friendly, human way.

Jonathan Edwards, CBE

Thank you very much to you and your team. The service provided is very good. I was happy after getting feedback provided over the phone. I was worried about buying the house and my questions were all answered.

Ms H Kaur

Richard Farrey at Silverstone was a joy to deal with. He provided clear and concise recommendations and was easy to communicate with. We would highly recommend Silverstone.

Ian Thornhill

We had a Level 3 survey carried out on an Edwardian property in Whitley Bay. The report was detailed, comprehensive and clear, with supporting photographs throughout (79 pages long). It included a summary of work to be done and documentation to request, along with urgency and estimated costs. After-sales service was great; Ross took the time to assist me with further queries

Joe Hopkins

I have been delighted with my experience working with Silverstone Residential Surveys as my building surveyor. Ross at Silverstone provided a meticulous Full Building Survey, complete with extensive explanations and a multitude of photographs, within an impressive five-day turnaround for such a lengthy report. His professionalism and efficiency exceeded my expectations.

Jeremy Coulon

This is the second time we have used Silverstone Residential Surveys and each time we have been exceedingly impressed with not only the service from Joanne and the team, but also the quality of the survey report from Ross Haggie our surveyor on both occasions. Ross is a true professional who knows what to look for, what is an important concern and what is ultimately a cosmetic issue that should be noted. The quality of the recommendations regarding water management, airflow management and building envelope advice was second to none. If you are looking to purchase a house in the Newcastle upon Tyne area, Ross and Joanne at Silverstone are the ones to trust.
