Worth every penny.
We purchased our house a little over a year ago. At the time of inspection, there were some issues with the chimney and the fireplace/firebox that were addressed and fixed by the owner before we finalized our purchase.
Several weeks ago, we noticed new cracks and issues with the fireplace and some cracks in drywall on either side of the fireplace. We called the company who had done work several years ago to stabilize the chimney for the previous owner. They came to our home, assessed the situation, and then delivered a subtle yet pointed sales pitch based a bit on fear.
We wanted a structural engineer to visit our home to review the fireplace, the chimney, the cracks in some of the drywall, etc. and give us an unbiased opinion. We saw

's high rating, and we liked his

, logical replies to the few less-than-stellar reviews. He made very valid points. We noted that NO ONE seemed to take issue with his knowledge or work ethic.

was also recommended to us by two realtors who have used him to inspect foundations, etc. for buyers.

was on time. He was friendly, had a warm sense of humor and was very easy to understand. He spent 3 hours examining our property, looking at the crawlspace and chimney/firebox, taking measurements and answering every one of my 6,547 questions with great patience. His knowledge about the Portland area and our neighborhood in particular was very impressive. He noted that the "fix" suggested by the other company would not likely be a suitable one over time based on the

they would use and the type of soil in our neighborhood. He gave us some very practical advice, and when we asked (only when we asked), he referred us to some tradesman who could help us with some necessary projects.
We have two large, rather obnoxious dog who, although crated during

was very kind to them and didn't seem bothered at all.
Based on this visit, we are considering hiring

to do some seismic retrofitting on our house.

The order was placed on 6/14/14 including my 10 % downpayment.
It took over 4 weeks for the installers from their Colusa California office to arrive to do the install. They arrived on 7/17/14 with several wrong parts. The frame rails were the wrong guage steel, weaker 14 gauge instead of the stronger 12 guage on the order. The bottom frame rails were 1 & 1/2 feet shorter than called for in the order. So they left without assembling any parts to the dock.
They returned on 7/24/14 and assembled most of the dock cover, but were missing two of the three "open end supports", that were also listed on the order. The side sheet metal panels were 18 inches shorter than specified on the order. I talked to their distributer the same day, but they could only tell me they would get back to me on date they will return.
The next day, I spoke to the local dealer about the latest problem and explained that due to a long vacation, the installer could return in the first half of September. Their Colusa office called and scheduled the final work for the afternoon of 9/19/14. They couldn't make that date, so rescheduled for the next day on saturday 9/20/14 when they did arrive to complete the job and did it correctly per the order.
Please note: the local independent dealer, did a fine job. Without his help, the job still wouldn't be completed or even done per the order.

Mr.

was extremely knowledgeable and offered sound advice for all issues he uncovered. He also provided detailed explanations for the reasons behind the concerns. You can rest assured that he will spot any structural abnormalities during his consultation.

came out within a week and evaluated the property in a single visit. Pointed out a number of things but especially a couple important details about improvements we could make. We followed his improvement suggestions and upon removal of a brick patio struck paydirt, finding a large hole under an old concrete walk against our foundation. There was no way to see the hole under the brick and there were no signs of standing water against the house.
Was worth every penny to make sure we spent money only on those activities that would address the problem. We feel like we spent money on the right things as a result of our consultation and saved $10,000 from those that might dig up our basement so we could be more effective at NOT solving our problem.

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.
