Recent Review: We contacted Harel to do the inspection because we wanted a structural engineer to look at our concerns with the floor and retaining wall. He did a great job with everything. He was very thorough and took his time, like checking every electrical outlet and a complete inspection of the roof, furnace, and AC. He knew a lot about the structure of our house by looking for small clues. He took pictures of almost everything and wrote down notes during the inspection so he wouldn't forget. We were able to successfully use his report, mostly concerning the retaining walls, to negotiate down the price of the house. Very nice and intelligent guy, would definitely recommend!

Excellent advice from the owner.  He strongly suggested having a disinterested third party of structural engineers review the home and develop plans for remediation, if needed.  He mentioned that if work needed to be done, the structural engineers could draw up a remediation plan, and bids for work would be comparable.

I had one retaining wall that was failing and another one that need to be reinforced. After going through several contractors and numerous estimates--I had trouble picking the right one because nobody was willing to do the job, partly because there was no heavy equipment access. Finally, I got in touch with EFS. Mr. Brian MacCreary who worked out the details with their engineers was very professional, knowledgable, and responsive. Although, EFS provided me with the most expensive quote, the work they did was fabulous. Most of the work was hand labor because of access that was limited as the walls were on a steep hill. The crew was very professional, on time and got the job done in the exact time frame as stated. Not to mention the care they took to clean up after the job--you could barely tell that we had such a massive project done in our backyard. These guys are definitely a bit on the expensive side, but you can be assured of a really well done job that they guaranteed for fifteen years. I'd totally hire them again.

He's a guy who gets paid by the hour so I would say his prices were just a little higher than reasonable. He's very thorough, extremely careful, good communicator, knows what he's talking about, and pretty caring. He could have been a little cheaper but that's how he earns his daily bread. The clock starts running because he's a consultant and he's paid by the hour.

Brian McCreary is the structural engineer who came out. We had support pillars put in by another company. This was after we tried to have the pillars put in by Brian McCreary. We had selected him after we interviewed different companies. The other structural engineer we had made some recommendations about our basement, but he didn?t do the actual work. So we called Brian McCreary to do the actual work. He seemed really knowledgeable and we wanted to go with him, but we wanted him to work in conjunction with the other structural engineer. I finally got them to come out together and I couldn?t be there, but my boyfriend was there. They looked at our French drain and they noticed that it was dry. It had rained slightly the previous day, but it had been dry before that. He said that the water wasn?t going to our French drain since our sump pump was dry. He also said that it was underlining our foundation. We had some cracks and we finally had them evaluated. So we needed these supports. They made my boyfriend believe like our whole foundation was about to crumble. He wanted to put in a new foundation and a new French drain. He only looked at our sump pump and stamped on our floor. He wanted $12000 to put in the new French drain. So my boyfriend panicked. He was ready to give our house back to the bank and to move out because he thought that the house was ready to collapse. He thought that we couldn?t sell it to anyone either if it collapsed. We had another structural engineer come out after that and he was more qualified at least according to his educational background. I thought that he was more reliable than the first guy. He came and looked at it and said that it was perfectly fine. He told us that the cracks that we see are not an evidence of structural problems. He told us that our French drain was fine. I think Brian McCreary tried to scam us. I don?t know if he did or he sincerely might have believed that we had to rip out our French drain and put in a new one, but it seemed to me like he was making work for himself. So that to me was pretty serious. He was punctual though. The price he quoted for the French drain was extremely high. He didn?t do any work. He tried to sell something that wasn?t needed to be done and that was really wrong. He was responsive. It did take a while to schedule, but that was because we had to reconcile his schedule with the second structural engineer who came out. We will never use Brian McCreary again. We need to pay the second structural engineer for the visit, but we didn?t have to pay to Brian because he didn?t do the work.

Eric came and gave me an estimate to replace and reinforce a retaining wall for 7500$. After our verbal agreement for him to come and down, get an advance check and begin the work when convenient-- he became non responsive, never followed up and barely remembered the quote he had given me when I talked to him again. It was awful to track him down to start the job. I finally gave up and went with a different contractor.
