were both consummate professionals. They squeezed me in on short notice and got the report to me incredibly fast (in time to meet the Due Diligence deadline).
...more came out, went through the entire home inspection report and then did his own inspection of the home (finding issues that weren't even flagged in the inspection). He was throrough, extremely knowledgeable, and walked me carefully through everything he found and what his recommendations would be. He then followed it up with a comprehensive report detailing all of the necessary repairs. It was exactly what I needed and was well worth the fees charged. I look forward to working with them on future projects!!
Top notch, exceptional quality, professional, responsive... I give them an A+++!! "
Rated Review by Roy C.
"The work was completed promptly and professionally. The engineer [Mr.
] explained all his observations and recommendation and answered all my questions. The report was submitted exactly when promised and was in adequate details ...more to allow a structural contractor to review the problems and provide a quote for repair. The price was a little bit of a sticker shock [maybe because of my own ignorance of pricing of this kind of work] but not of major concern. "

very carefully because we were looking for someone with whom we could establish a long-term relationship.
We knew when we bought the house that there was some sloppy work done in the crawl space including fixes during earlier 'renovations' that adversely affected the house's foundation. ...more So, one of our first tasks was to find a structural engineer. When I called
, I wasn't even sure what to ask for and he was very helpful and very patient in outlining the steps for me.
We were charged a flat fee for
to come to the house and map out our crawl space for us. We paid $1,080 which I think is near the higher end of his range for the work. We knew in advance that we had a complicated crawl space and anticipated our final bill would be that amount because
was good about informing us upfront about the variables that would determine that final bill.
After sorting through all of his notes, etc.
sent us a report that included a detailed map of our crawl space and the issues he found. He listed all of the proposed fixes. We received the report in writing, but also spent time on the phone going over it with him.
What I really appreciated is that
was conscientious about presenting us with a to-do list in order of priority so that we could have the work done in phases if we wanted to. However, we had already decided to make fixing the crawl space/foundation issue a priority over getting our house furnished. Having had seemingly unending foundation issues with our previous house we just wanted to get the work done upfront. The peace of mind alone is worth it!
has been very accessible for subsequent conversations when we had questions about the report. When asked he made recommendations for companies that could do the work for us. We are really happy with the contractor he recommended.
As mentioned in the beginning, we were looking for someone who would get to know our house and whom we could call on over the years if needed. It's an older house, built in the 1930's, so if and when issues arise we are confident we can engage
. They were very responsive, courteous and professional. We were pleased with their thorough examination of the areas of concern in our home. They followed up within a few days with a written report detailing their findings. I was very pleased with the engineering expertise of
arrived on time and performed a complete inspection of our home. He provided a detailed analysis of our home and the issues we want to address with a contractor. I am very satisfied with the work and detail that was put into our plan.
showed up on time, and walked through our entire house and basement, addressing all of our concern areas. At each spot, he told me why it is or isn't a problem, what we can do to fix it, and gave me pointers on how to fix it myself to save money. He didn't find any major problem areas, let me know I could call him anytime ...more to review what we talked about, and decided he'd only charge $250 for a consultation fee, since he didn't have to write up a report. Considering we were expecting AT LEAST $500, not to mention thousands more if he found any major problems, that was a price we were VERY willing to pay.
We plan on finishing our basement in the next couple of years, and we'll definitely be calling
was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. I crawled under the house with him and we had a great chat while he photographed each issue and talked to me about what the problem and solution was. He followed up several of the issues with level measurements on the first floor, confirming the problems by finding dipping/sinking where ...more he expected to find it. His report contained certified repairs that would be necessary for each issue (no menu to choose from, just THE solution which cuts out any communication problems or half-fixes) and he oversaw those repairs before closing.
I highly recommend
for structural engineering services of the kind that I required and would use him again. "
came on time and was extremely professional. We walked through out the house looking at the walls and taking pictures of areas of concern. He did the same think for the exterior of the house. Fortunately none of the cracks were serious and the foundation was fine. He did find a settling of our garage that did not need immediate ...more attention but I might want to level off at some point. Using
saved me several thousand dollars doing repairs that I did not need to do while giving me peace of mind that my house was ok for now."
