  1. Building regs and advice on previously faulty plans

    Thanks Laura for saving our project. After being let down with previous architect Laura was able to produce building regs quickly whilst also spotting critical errors on the original plans which we were able to go back to previous architect to have revised. Wish we would have used Castlemore to begin with as im sure we would have ended up with a better experience of the design process.

  2. Full Structural Survey

    Mal conducted a full structural survey of a house which we were planning on buying. He called me afterwards to summarise his findings and we got a full report 3 days later. He was extremely diligent and helpful and explained everything clearly. With his advice, he actually saved us from buying a house which would have been a money pit. Thanks so much!!

  7. Home buyers survey

    A very professional and thorough survey allowed us to highlight a few issues before buying our new house. Communication was better than expected and survey was completed swiftly and in excellent detail. We would definitely recommend this company for this type of work.

  8. New build snagging - guttering and drip trays

    I used Castlemore to do my original snagging on a new build a few months ago. Aside from smaller snags, Mal spotted a problem with the guttering and on a subsequent visit did a specific report on it, which I used to send the developer/builder. It is taken a few follow up letters ( again using advice from Mal) and the developer is now using Mal to oversee the remedial works to the guttering, tiles and drip trays. Mal is very professional, has an eye for detail and great communication skills and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending him.

  9. Inspection of Victorian building to two flats

    Laura and the team was extremely helpful, and worked with us as we had 3rd party to co-ordinate with. Mal undertook the inspection with great expertise and professionalism. The written report was explicit, easy to understand and not too technical. Based on this service I would be more than happy to use and recommend this company for any of their services.
