    Nordling Structural Engineers LLC
    Every job / project I have done with Nordling Structural has always made my life as a builder easier!! Everything John Nordling puts his mind and time too is taken very seriously. He takes into account not only the structural aspects but ALL aspects of your project. I have found him to be honest, straight forward and thoughtful. Not too many engineers will take the time to find creative solutions to your structural problems these days! If John can't or WONT do your job then it is for a GOOD reason. BEST engineer in 5 counties surrounding Portland. SIMPLY TOPS.

    Avos Inc - Wrought Iron Engineering IronWork
    I was very happy to find Avos-Inc. could complete the whole project using their ingenuity. Another fence company could have done the fence section but said they could not do the brick post portion. Avos removed the fence sections attached to the brick pillar. They built a new 8' fence section and reinstalled the two fence sections. They used 3 men-power and crane or jack equipment to lift the column up to remoter the grout at bottle and top of split. I appreciated that Avos was able to remove the brick pillar without it breaking, as that saved me money since I didn't have to have a new brick pillar built. The new fence section has a durable powder coat finish and looks very professional. Thanks for getting yet another home maintenance project off my list. Kudos to my neighbor who cut down the tree on his property that was creating the problem. Also, Avos coordinated very well with my neighbor on the timing of the fence work and the tree removal done by the Tolleson Family Tree Care of Washougal, WA.

    EK ENGINEERING
    They left us High and Dry we spent 2,000 dollars with them to have our plans engineered. Plans are 99% done submitted and we are at the last step to Getting our building permit. The county wanted 3 small changes for the engineering drawings so they matched the architect layout, Simple things like, Remove a bathroom, Closet, and Change a Fire Wall rating. All very simple things but they refuse to finish the job they started. We have Now have to start from scratch with another firm and are completely out of the 2,000 dollars we spent with them and now have incomplete plans. BEWARE of this firm, Very frustrating and disappointing and expensive. But they got paid so they don't really care to finish what they started.

    New Leaf Renovation
    We are in the process of finishing our walk out basement and are doing most of the contracting ourselves. We were stuck trying to find someone who would be able to take out an old garage door and put in a new door and window in the same space. Because it was an external wall, we wanted concrete poured, but couldn't find anyone who was willing to do the work. We had a few quotes and though New Leaf wasn't the cheapest, they were the only ones who were willing to pour some concrete at the base of the wall to ensure a good barrier against the weather. Matt did a great job and came out very quickly as soon as we said we wanted to go with New Leaf. He worked on our project for several days and even offered to come out on the weekend because he knew we were trying to finish as soon as possible. He was friendly and efficient and we'd definitely use them again.

    New Leaf Renovation
    The bay window went off without a hitch; stuck to the budget, VERY attentive to detail, happy to touch up any issues we had and took pride in their work. The kitchen remodel was a large project. The created a 6 week step-by-step calendar for us, outlined what our responsibilities were, what their responsibilities were, and had it all drawn up in a professional contract. Chameleon prides themselves on sticking to a schedule and doing everything they can to meet the schedule. Of the few miscommunications between ourselves and the contractor, they worked to fix any issues and we shared the cost or they absorbed the cost on several items, which was appreciated. Sam was our project manager, and my wife and I can't say enough good things about him. Extraordinarily nice, professional, attentive to the fact that the kitchen was still our house even through the demolition and treated the place respectfully (wiped his shoes on the mats, asked his employees to do the same, etc.). We got a sense that Sam really cared about our project; it was not just another "job". We did have some major set backs in the schedule due to a cracked granite sink beyond their control, and inclement weather affecting our granite counter fabrication, but they did everything in their power to be on schedule, on time, and communicate with us when there might be problems or delays.

    SUN DOG CONSTRUCTION
    Lawrence and his crew were punctual, professional, knowledgeable, and diligent.  I was fascinated by how much problem-solving skill it took to uncover the root causes of problems and to devise solutions to them.  These guys are knowledgeable and skilled.  When they were done with the back part of the house it looked natural -- not as if it had just been repaired and improved.  All in all, I am very satisfied.  The two projects cost more than I wanted to spend but I got value for the money and I'm glad I did it.  I trust these guys and if and when more projects have to be done Sundog is where I will be going.

    Ouellette Engineering
    Mr Ouellette crawled under our living room floor and we discussed the current structural layout. He proposed that we might add additional beam supports to create a more rigorous design and avoid a "spongy" feeling when walking across certain areas. He then wrote a report outlining his suggestions for improving the floor and included the calculations for determining the performance of the final raised floor. In addition, he recommended a contractor for resolving both the living room floor and patio roof issues. Bottom line ..... Very professional work with timely submission of project report. Would highly recommend Ouellette Engineering for evaluation of structural issues pertaining to residential buildings.

    Seismic Technologies
    We hired Jay to come to our home to help address concerns with various cracks that were appearing throughout our home. Jay was very professional and polite. He didn't mind having me follow him around the house while he inspected everything. The good news is that Jay didn't believe we have any kind of major structural issues. The piece of mind I now have made this money very well worth spent. I will keep his card in the event I need his services in the future.

    Jay did a very thorough job and was generous with his time.  He showed an understanding of the evolution of house design, i.e. that our house was designed in the 60s and had the problems of a house of that age and in this location.  He also clearly understood the properties of the region and soil where our house was sited. He listened well and clearly understood that we cared about costs.  He gave us multiple options for making the necessary repairs at different price points and offered suggestions for ways we could accomplish them ourselves if we desired.  He noticed additional potential problems and gave us a sense of how they should be prioritized.  All of this gave us hope that we could accomplish the needed repairs within our budget.  It was money well spent.
