"K.P." Kifle Gulilat, P.E. came late April 2018 to inspect our property overall and advise us on what was needed to be done to our pier & beam foundation as it had become apparent that leveling was needed. "K.P." was extremely professional, courteous and prompt. A complete report arrived slightly over a week following the inspection which included all photos of under our home & exterior. KP was kind enough to sit with us after his inspection and review his overall findings & make recommendations on how to keep a new leveling job in good shape over the long term. After we interviewed a couple of home leveling companies companies so far, we were concerned with their 2 different approaches to the leveling process, so I called KP to ask his advice from an engineering perspective. He was so kind to offer his advice freely in a few short minutes and explained why he felt one approach was better than the other. I would certainly recommend Mr. K.P. Gulilat, P.E. to anyone without any reservations whatsoever.

Mr. Duhon 's office called and scheduled the appt.. He was running a little late, so he called and explained and gave a time he would be at my home. Mr. Duhon showed up on time, explained what he was going to be doing after he got a history of the problem I was having with my foundation. Mr. Duhon took all the measurements and explained to me that what I needed was not a foundation repair , but a root barrier because of the oak tree in my front yard that was lifting my foundation. Mr Duhon is professional, friendly and explains everything he is doing and why. His pricing is reasonable. He sent a comprehensive report, with recommendations a few days later. I am following up at this time. Would recommend Mr. Duhon anytime to anyone. Donna P. Houston

Gerard came to us on very short notice. He made himself available within hours of receiving our call on a Saturday. He offered for us to walk around with him AND he explained each indication of a foundation and structural issue that he was looking for. We identified a crack on the face of the brick of the home we are preparing to buy. Everything we had read indicated that it could be a foundation or a structural issue. He came out and not only advised us that we had nothing to worry about with the crack, but he also explained WHY. He ended up charging us a very fair price because he made the determination of the structural integrity of the home very quickly. I would recommend him to anyone who is preparing to purchase a home without reservation.

Another Angie's list engineer recommended Mr. Riedel to help me with a small structural engineering problem on my 1935 home. Mr. Riedel was actually out of town, but he was very helpful over the phone and offered as much help as he could, looking at emailed photos of my dilemma. He provided me with contact information for a colleague of his here in town who might be able to assist. The colleague was likewise professional.

I called Mr. Duhon on Friday, in a real bind, needing an immediate decision on foundation work. He came out the next morning. Mr. Duhon had hoped to make a determination through a more basic survey, using levels, since that would have saved us some money. However, our situation was much more complicated than that. He wound up doing a complete survey for over 3 hours, both inside and out, using all of his professional instruments. He found unfortunately, there was not one level spot in our house! This was later reconfirmed by the foundation repair company that we used - and they had had no contact with each other. Mr. Duhon spent a great deal of time going over each part of what he had found, how he had reached his conclusions, and his recommendations for fixing our house. He followed up by sending a written report, including a detailed drawing, the next day. Mr. Duhon was most professional, in addition to being a real gentleman. I highly recommend him!

Gerard helped with structural engineering on an addition to our house. He has tons of knowledge and experience in this area. Though there was one issue after completion was done. Gerard handled is quickly, professionally and to our satisfaction while absorbing all the cost. I believe that says a lot about his integrity.

Adam is very helpful. When he came out to give us our estimate, he was punctual, listened to what we had to say, and ensured that he understood what we were looking for. He took the time to answer all of our questions. He emailed the estimate to us within a couple of days, and once we were ready to go, he came out later that week to get the measurements that he needed. We are very pleased with their work as well as their level of professionalism.

ABJORN SEFELDT ARCHITECT
It went very well. Mr.Bjorn O Sefeldt, AIA understanding and helpful. When city had few objections he changed the drawings but did not charged for that. I am very happy with his work and also as an honest person to do business with.
Recent Review: Greenworks was a dream to work with from start to finish. I reached out and received a prompt response. My rep Damon answered all my questions and gathered the information he needed for a proposal. We received our proposal, agreed to the terms, and they scheduled workers to do the engineering report. The workers were prompt, courteous, and demonstrated the same level of commitment as the customer service team. They completed the report and my general contractor gave it a thumbs up. Even though I had no experience with the services requested, I never had to wonder what was to happen next. They communicated clearly all the way through. I will be thrilled to employ them on my next project and will enthusiastically refer them to my friends who need any of their services. Thanks Greenworks!
Recent Review: Outstanding. Angel was extremely knowledgable, a great listener and provided 2 great options for opening up the kitchen into the family room.which we wanted to do. He explained everything very well and put all the necessary detail in the report for our general contractor. Would use Crosstown again and would ask for Angel!

Recent Review: I was extremely satisfied with Josiah Overstreet of Crosstown Engineering, whom I think did a thorough and excellent job. Joe was punctual, professional, and personable. He took measurements throughout the house, documented his work, and later took time to answer additional questions that I had concerning his work and the work and reputation of Structured Repair, which he said was stellar. He answered every question I had thoroughly and in a way that I could follow and comprehend. I do not know what the cost of the service would have been, because the payment for Josiah and Crosstown were included in the price I paid to Structured Engineered for an independent review of their work.

Recent Review: We have a 3000 sq ft home and were concerned that we may need foundation repair. We had noticed a few cracks along the mortar and bricks, a separated joist/beam connection in the attic, and a cracked post in the attic. We wanted to obtain a licensed structural engineer's review of our problems and recommendations for repair prior to contacting a foundation repair company and listening to their salesperson attempt to diagnose our problem. We chose Sealy Engineering as a independent structural engineer based on Angie's List reviews. Taylor Sealy arrived punctually, was professional yet personable, and listened to our concerns. He took a tour of our home inside and out to view the areas of concern, and then he went in to the attic to inspect those problem areas as well as the surrounding framing. He then reviewed and took multiple measurements to assess the levelness of the foundation. We happened to have prior, basic foundation level measurements on hand from when we purchased the home, and Mr. Sealy reviewed those measurements as well. (Those prior measurements were not performed by Sealy Eng). Based on all of this, Mr. Sealy determined that the foundation had not moved significantly and that we did not require foundation repair, but he did make other suggestions as to the causes of the issues we had noticed. Mr. Sealy's emailed report arrived within 24 hours and his mailed copy within 2 business days. Mr. Sealy has a sample report available on his website, and I feel that the sample is a good representation of the type of report that he provides. We would definitely use again/recommend Sealy Engineering.
