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.
Schiller Park 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
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
. Dr
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
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
Schiller Park 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
Schiller Park 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
Schiller Park 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
Schiller Park 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
Schiller Park 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.

Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
was extremely thorough and very informative. He did a detailed inspection and took all the time needed to explain things to us in
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
's terms.
The report that he provided will serve as an excellent baseline for monitoring the future integrity of the house foundation.

I would recommend this company to anybody. First
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
scheduled us on short notice and went above and beyond to have an engineer available for us within 2 days. Then
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
did a super professional job evaluating the house and giving us recommendations on how to take care of possible future issues. It was the the best money I have paid, they saved me $15,000 in foundation work that the house did not need.

When I called to make an appointment, they were able to schedule us quickly, which was one reason we chose them over another firm. It was their wide scope of experience that impressed me the most, however (read about it on their website). Despite their impressive credentials,
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
(the engineer who inspected the house) is very approachable and easy to talk to. We learned so much from him during and after the inspection, which we loved!
And then, as mentioned above, he provided us with a detailed written report (with photos) 36 hours after the inspection, and has everything ready to design plans for repairs when we ask for them.
So, from beginning to end, we were treated with great courtesy and respect.
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
is top-notch company that provides excellent, professional service.

Extremely well!
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
arrived promptly as scheduled. (It did take a while to get scheduled - but with the positive reviews I figured it was worth the wait.) He asked me not to provide too many details up front, so his survey is objective and not subjective to the items the I may mention. He surveyed my basement, used a laser to measure the bowing of the walls and took photos inside and outside the house. .
A day or so following the survey, I received an detailed assessment via email. The issues were identified with annotated photos detailing the problems. The recommendations include a detailed work plan with scale drawings for the contractor.
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
was definitely worth the wait!

We were not confident that the extensive backyard pool remodeling project was being executed properly. It was traumatic to hear jackhammers breaking up the decking and piles of soil all over. I was searching on Angie's list for a structural engineer in our zip code area in hopes that s/he would be able to come out to the site as soon as possible. I read through Dr. Movassaghi's expertise and contacted him right away. We had no time to waste as the work was going to continue the next day. Dr. Movassaghi dropped everything and came out to our home two hours later - off hours. His extensive experience was apparent immediately during his assessment of the project. We took his recommendations and changed the scope of the project to include adding reinforced concrete into the plan. He visited the site several times to make sure that the work was being executed appropriately.
When the job was completed, we were confident that the backyard was designed to last. On a side-note, Dr. Movassaghi walked into this difficult situation but was able to not only assure us, step by step, that the project was going well but also was able to work seamlessly with the contractors already on the job site. He is an expert and professional and we are very grateful for his help on this project.

Mr.
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
came out and evaluated a large crack in our slab foundation. We were concerned that our home would require pylons be installed after researching things on the internet. Prices we were seeing were anywhere from 10-40,000! My wife and I terrified of that prospect. We decided to hire Mr.
Schiller Park Structural Engineers Provider Name Locked
before inviting any contractors out to look at the job. He assured us that we would not need any pylons, and mudjacking is all that would be required to fix the foundation. He was very polite and answered all of our questions. He sent us a full report later that evening. We are very happy with the job he did.
