    Small Potatoes Structural Engineering
    It has been 97 working days (05/22/19 - 10/09/19) since our small condo association engaged with Small Potatoes Engineering to review a balcony that was caving in and create an Engineer's Report and Drawing. The report was issued after 30 days, but after review it was determined we would not be able to use the design/materials specified, and we have requested your company update the documentation based on our architects recommendations. To this date, we still are not able to proceed with repairs because the Engineer's Report and Drawing do not comply with the Historic District requirements to issue permits. We have repeatedly attempted to get Small Potatoes to update the design so we are able to move forward; however, they have been unresponsive for several weeks.

    Advanced Engineering Construction
    Advanced Engineering designed and installed an impressive pump station for my basement. Although there has been a pump in the basement since the house was built in 1960, It never captured enough water. Sometimes I might accumulate as much as a foot or so of water in the basement if there was a rally hard rain. After a couple of days the pump would get the water level down to 2 or 3 inches and I would have to sweep the water to the pump station. and use a wet dry vac. I reached out to several other companies and discussed their approach for addressing the problems before hiring Advanced Engineering. I discovered that most companies seemed to be using a very similar design to one another, which must have been a popular prefabricated approach that they probably use on every house. When I spoke with Phil Carter from Advanced Engineering he explained how they could do a custom pump station design for my home which would be more effective and less expensive than what others were proposing. He also addressed other drainage issues outside the home which have helped keep the water away from my foundation and reduced the risk of future foundation problems. Phil seemed to be more knowledgeable about drainage issues than anyone else I spoke with. (maybe because he is an engineer). They installed my drainage system over 9 months ago and the basement has been bone dry since! I thought this was pretty amazing since they only installed one pump station and it has been the most rain this year that I can remember. One day we had 5 inches of rain and the pump still kept up. I was also very pleased with the crew. Dave was very nice and extremely knowledgable as well. It was very hard work and they did it in a timely manner. Advanced Engineering also took care of the mold remediation and corrected a couple of structural issues as well. I think I was most impressed and happy about the drainage solutions though, because now my basement stays clean and dry. And I don't have to sweep water anymore. Thank You Advanced Engineering !

    JES Foundation Repair
    Very well. Bryan Lara Martinez and his crew were very professional. Called and let me know when they would arrive. Bryan showed me the intellijack stabilizers and explained how they would be used. Kept me apprised of all the steps that had to be taken. They cleaned up every day before leaving. Very pleased with the job performed. No more sagging walls and creaking floors. Very courteous. Would definitely hire again. Also showed me pictures of the work done.

    PEMBERTON ENGINEERING
    The engineer, Mark Pemberton, arrived on time, spent 5-10 minutes max in the attic, came down said he would email the plans and collected 700 dollars. He sent the initial plans as agreed. However when the contractor received and reviewed them they said his plan was generic and did not match my situation and would not work. The contractor contacted the engineer and the engineer gave him a verbal approval/correction. When pushed to send corrections in a revised architectural plan he told the contractor "if there is a problem just have the inspector call me". I - as the paying client - called him and insisted he provide accurate plans that matched the permit and included corrections. Begrudgingly, he revised and resent the document. The contractor found that his plan was complete "overkill" - costing me $3200 when it could have been a simple fix costing well under $1000. The county inspector met with the contractor to inspect the finished work - he agreed and was surprised by the excessive work that was required by the engineering plan. The engineer told the contractor that he has done about 10 of these a year and sent a generic (perhaps cookie cutter) repair architectural plan. It did not match my situation so it was not drawn specifically with my situation in mind. This engineer drove up in his bright red corvette with his young tall blonde assistant who took notes ... He spent 5-10 minutes looking at the job, collected $700 and provided inaccurate and inappropriate plans to correct it. His priorities were clear ... and it wasn't conscientious service. When both the contractor who will benefit from a more elaborate repair and a tough county home inspector scratch their heads trying to understand the excessive, unnecessary work that is provided in an engineering plan - I think it's fair to question the validity of it. I would NEVER recommend this guy. He's clearly in it for the money without regard for the impact to clients. Signed, Displeased client (Still burns me)

    Small Potatoes Structural Engineering
    Michael Schooley of Small Potatoes Engineering company was hired by my builder to design and inspect a pile foundation for the modular home I was buying. Michael Schooley did not order and geotechnical study prior to designing the pile system. Schooley was chosen to be the special inspector by the builder, not me. Schooley inspected his own work, which seems to be a conflict to me, but it appears to be the standard practice in the industry. Ultimately a forensic engineering company was hired to evaluate the structure because of excessive shaking of the house. It was found that the double 2x12 girders where over spanned and the pilings where over loaded. The piling system was severely undersized for the home. The pilings where to be driven to a depth of 25 feet per the design. They were vibrated in to a depth between 19 to 21 feet. The modular home manufacturers pile plan suggests using 27 piles under the home with perimeter foundation support for all exterior walls. Schooleys design only had 15 pilings supporting the house. The north and south 28 foot walls of the home were not supported by any girder at all. These walls make up 37% of the perimeter of the home which is not supported. Schooley declined to assist me in correcting the problems and entered into a co-defense type of arrangement with the builder against me. The builder settled out of court the morning of the trial after a two year long, very expensive battle. The suit against Schooley was dismissed. Schooley's deposition, showed he did not perform many of the required tasks or record keeping functions of the Special Inspector. He also said he would typically order a geotechnical study for this kind of job but didn't. The piling plan also called for Simpson strong ties to tie the foundation girders to the floor joists. Absolutely none were installed. But Schooley reported no deficiencies during his inspection. There were many more deficiencies that went unreported, but these are the major facts of the case. It should also be noted, that while Michael Schooley was working for his own company while designing the foundation for my home, he was also employed by the City of Norfolk as an engineer in public works department. He was soon asked to resign from the City after I made my complaint known to the head building official. Unsure if his resignation had anything to do with my foundation complaint. During his deposition, Schooley did not give a reason why the City asked him to resign after I had made my complaint. During Michael Schooleys deposition he did not state the name of his company was Small Potatoes. But in fact that is what he is listed as on Angie's List and his website is www.smallpotatoes.com. It was very unfortunate and expensive for me to have been involved with Mr. Schooley. Even though I did not hire him, I was severely impacted by his lack of professionalism. He knew this was wrong and should have made it right instead of joining forces with the builder.

    A-1 Inc Exterminators
    Service was performed properly. I had to purchase 2 packages because my property has 2 structures on it. The company did a follow-up about 6 months later to make sure there were still no termites.
