I requested to schedule an appointment with this person twice. It have been two weeks, and this person hasn't extended me the courtesy of responding. This is disappointing behavior after reading his good reviews

It did not go well. The engineer was unwilling to commit himself as to whether he judged the wall to be structurally sound as it stood. He was also unwilling to commit himself as to whether his recommendation for excavation, followed by replacement of existing waterproofing material as well as replacement of gravel-encased foundation drains, were likely to mitigate any potential future problems. Try as we might, we could not elicit straightforward answers to straightforward questions.

was our engineer and he was fantastic. We got an appointment within 2 days of calling and he arrived on time. He methodically evaluated the entire building structure, took measurements and pictures, explained the forces at work causing the settlement and heaving, answered all questions, and explained some basic diagnostic techniques we can use on our own in the future. He explained what measures would be needed to correct the problems and estimated the level of difficulty and cost so we could make a decision on whether to proceed with the investment. We decided that the multitude of problems made it a poor investment risk, so a small fee for

's services saved us from making a potentially costly error. Money well spent.

Mr.
Honolulu Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
showed up on time, inspected the foundation of a home I was considering buying, and addressed specific problems that I had noticed. He very thoroughly, clearly and patiently explained the problem, its cause, and recommended several solutions, which he also explained in detail. The appointment lasted about one hour. He emailed me a written report of his findings within 24 hours. The process couldn't have gone more smoothly.

walked through the home with me explaining anything that looked odd or unsettling. He was able to uncover some issues that others had not and provide a detailed report. The report restated everything we had discussed in the meeting and recommendations on what needed to happen next.
He also made himself available to the contractor to answer questions and address future concerns.

Made an appointment for the structural integrity of my home attic. The engineer said he was bringing an associate as well. I had to call Dr.
Honolulu Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
as he was 20 minutes late. He arrived by himself. Though very cordial, this was the only time I saw

. Dr

scheduled another appointment for two days later. Not only did he not call, but he plum forgot. I called him on Saturday to which he stated he was busy and would call in a couple hours. Well, here it is Wednesday and have yet to hear from Dr.

Over a period of about 3 months, I went back and forth with
Honolulu Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
by phone and email. He kept saying he could do the repairs with his contractors and inspect the work upon its completion, but he dropped the ball, and I haven't heard from him in nearly a month. Perhaps he prefers to stick to inspections only... or should.

We scheduled a time with
Honolulu Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
and he came out to our house, walked through the first floor and basement in about 5 minutes, and told as the wall we were taking down was NOT load bearing. Fast forward 4 months and our contractor begins construction including taking down the wall
Honolulu Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
told us was not load bearing, and documented as such in a report. The contractor informs us the wall actually WAS load bearing. I immediately called
Honolulu Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
and asked him to come back, which he promptly did. He admitted that he made an error in his report and the reason for the error was because he looked at the direction the floor joists ran in the basement, and assumed they ran the same way on the second floor. As in turns out, the original builder of our house switched the joist directions on the second floor. This caused additional work for our contractor and unexpected cost on our part. While
Honolulu Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
did promptly come back to agree with the remedy our contractor posed for the additional support of the wall he removed, I was very disappointed that as a professional, he admitted to his error, but did not refund our money. His only job was to tell us whether the wall was load bearing, and he made a false assessment.
I was told by several contractors that all he needed to do was use a stub finder to confirm his conclusions but he did not.
Very disappointing, would not recommend him to anyone. That said, I would not be surprised if this is standard for structural engineers to do a walk through and not a stub finder test.

was extremely thorough and very informative. He did a detailed inspection and took all the time needed to explain things to us in

's terms.
The report that he provided will serve as an excellent baseline for monitoring the future integrity of the house foundation.
