We carry out residential structural surveys and commercial surveys in North Shields. North Shields is a town which is situated in Tyne and Wear.
North Shields is situated on the north bank of the River Tyne and is sited about eight miles east of Newcastle upon Tyne. Known locally as just ‘Shields' it takes its name from the Middle English world ‘Shieling' meaning ‘sheds or huts used by fishermen'. Historically North Shields is linked to the fishing industry but it also exported vast quantities of salt, after fishing, salt manufacture became the principal industry of the town.
North Shields has recently been the recipient of a major regeneration programme, which as surveyors is something we can appreciate. The redundant Albert docks are now home to the Royal Quays which houses a marina, an outlet shopping centre, an indoor water park, a bowling alley, and a Soccer Dome. To the south east of the town there have been further improvements at the Fish Quay where luxury apartments, restaurants and bars have been built.
North Shields best known former resident is Stan Laurel who lived in a house in Dockwray square before he became famous. The square has now been redeveloped and a statue of him has been placed in the centre.
If you are planning to book a building survey on a property you are purchasing in North Shields or the surrounding area then we would like to assure you that we always send a suitably qualified and experienced surveyor to carry out the job. This ensures that you get expert advice on any issues that we may find with the property we are surveying. All our surveyors are members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors - RICS - and are Independent Building Surveyors. Being 'independent' means that they are working for you and you alone; they do not work for a mortgage company or an estate agents, so they have your best interests at heart.
All our survey contain lots of images, clearly showing any problems that we have identified at the property such as woodworm, rising damp or cracking to the walls. We also use sketches in our survey which are aimed at helping you to understand how certain areas are constructed or to help show more clearly a problem that we have identified. You will also find lots of definitions of any building terminology that we may use in our survey, as we firmly believe in 'Plain English' and really want you to fully understand what we are saying in the survey report.
