Your structural survey is only as good as the structural survey report you receive after the property inspection. The more detailed and thorough it is the better. Having a very detailed survey report can not only help you renegotiate with vendors, it can also warn you if you should pull out of the purchase if serious defects are found.
Our structural survey cost includes utilizing damp testers, carbon mon-oxide testers and an infrared camera allowing us to see things that no other building surveyor can.
The infrared camera can see what the human eye can not. It picks up temperature differences in surfaces. For instance during a recent house survey in Dublin we found a well disguised leak at the chimney which the vendor had (likely) tried to conceal. Without this specialized piece of equipment most building surveyors would not have been able to identify this problem. Why, you may ask? The seller had painted over the moisture stains making this problem invisible to buyers and building surveyors alike. The infrared technology saved our client more than a thousand Euros in future repair costs.
The infrared camera will help your building surveyor identify:
- Roof leaks
- Plumbing problems
- Heating issues
- Improper insulation
- Electrical fire hazards
- and more
ONLY Property Health Check provides home buyers with the most thorough house surveys in Ireland using the power of infrared technology.

Feedback is positive; it was an efficient, no-fuss service, and if anyone we know is buying in Dublin we will recommend you. I appreciated Peter’s willingness to talk with me informally and at length about the properties in addition to providing the detailed written reports. Thanks, Peter, and Stella.

“May I take this opportunity to commend the high quality of the survey and indeed the speed and professionalism of its presentation. As it transpires, we did not attend the auction and believe that your survey saved us from the very scenario we wished to avoid. We were prepared to pay a premium price for a house in turn key condition. Your survey indicated that particular house was merely a cosmetic masterpiece”
