    Stable Struct
    Ragavan is very professional with his practice. He arrived at a home we are purchasing on time and ready to work. We had a tight deadline to meet for the home and he was able to efficiently check the structural integrity of the home. He walked us through his findings and was able to communicate what he found to us non-structural engineers. We highly recommend Stable Structures for professional home stability work!

    Alpha Structural, Inc.
    They were the best of the best. We interviewed other companies and they have everything in house to make a large project like this be very smooth. From pulling permits to engineers to explain the job they do everything in house which no other company could offer. From start to finish so professional and answered every question or concern along the project. Incredible crew and upon finishing the project they left it cleaned up and you wouldn't know they were there. I cant' say enough positive things about this company they are amazing.

    They asked the right questions, and determined it was because of the bushes, because the roots by the house. We eventually moved them, and they filled in the cracks. He even gave us some recommendations on how to prevent other issues.

    Tracy did a wonderful job with the structural inspection he performed. When initially contacting him, Tracy seemed familiar with the structural problem I was describing, and after asking me a few questions about the home, was able to explain to me what he anticipated the fix to be. Although he was late for the inspection (but called to let us know his eta), the inspection went well (our Realtor met him at our home) and we we received our report within the promised time frame. The report itself is incredibly detailed and contains both text and photos of areas of concern. Tracy was even able to recommend contractors that would be able to help us fix our issue if needed. I felt like his cost was the most affordable of the inspectors I researched and included the report (some other inspectors charged extra for the report). I hopefully won't need another structural inspection in the future, but I would definitely hire Tracy again if we needed him!
