Steadfast Structural Engineering is the ideal company for anyone who values quality and craftmanship. The company has undertaken extensive work on our house over the years including replacement of a flat roof with new balcony railings, ceiling replacement, wall repair (the repair was invisible), woodworm treatment, roof repair and laying a shed base. Each job has been conducted in an exemplary manner and Martin brings his extensive experience of construction to bear on each job so I am always sure that the job will be done right the first time and the result will last for years. I cannot recommend Steadfast Structural Engineering too highly and would be happy to speak to anyone requiring a reference.

We have no hesitation in recommending Martin Hillstead. His work is of the highest standard. He came to completely refurbish our kitchen – putting in a new window, new floor, ceiling, worktops, wiring and new kitchen units. We were very impressed by his professionalism and care that he took. Indeed, he said that he aims to take as much care on a client's room as he would on his own house – and so he does. We were very pleased with our kitchen when it was all finished – it went from a dark and dingy room to one that was full of light and texture and was much admired by our friends.

We used Steadfast Structural Engineering Services Ltd in February 2017 to carry out external repair work to my property and garage. Martin, (Managing Director) spent some considerable time with us explaining the work that was needed and had some suggestions as to what we should do. He followed this up with an itemised quotation and began work . He worked within the agreed time frame and kept up good communication us as to the progress of the jobs. Martin turned up early, worked efficiently and always cleaned up afterwards. The work he did was to a very high standard and were very happy with what he did. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company and will use them again in the future.

Martin, Thank you for the report. I am happy with the content. I shall forward this onto my Insurers and await their reply. I shall let you know the outcome. Many thanks to you for such a prompt, helpful and courteous service. Kind regards

I'm really impressed by the new fence and the standard of workmanship. Excellent job! Pity you don't live closer to Harrogate. We'd recommend you for some work in Yorkshire. I am away in Manchester today so will pay the balance tomorrow when back in Harrogate. Best regards

Martin completed some structural repairs that I was very pleased with. They were done to a very good standard and have corrected the problems we had. He also identified that the metal fire escape had been badly installed and was causing damage to both my property and my neighbours. This he corrected, also to a high standard of workmanship.

When it comes to structural work, and where attention to detail is required, Martin is your man. You cannot fault his knowledge or the passion for his trade. Very reliable and very informative. Great job.
