Structural Engineering reviews in Lake Forest

    Jeremy at OC Structure Check was fantastic! He completed a very through evaluation of our entire structure. He explained what he was checking for during his inspection. He also provided several recommendations to strengthen the structure in a couple of spots where there were small cracks in the wood. We feel much safer now that we have had our roof structure evaluated and would fully recommend OC Structure Check.

    My wife and are looking to purchase a home in Lake Forest CA.  Upon review of a previous accepted offer and their home inspection, the property we were looking at had some major structural work done to reinforce a beam due to the seller removing a load bearing wall during a renovation. 
    Although the seller provided plans from the firm he hired to complete the necessary repairs, I wanted to get a second opinion after our home inspector suggested there may be additional issues that may not have been addressed.
    Francisco, the owner of FJ Engineering + Design, was extremely helpful and professional.  He drove all the way from Alhambra to Lake Forest to meet with me, answered my emails and calls in a timely manner, and was extremely professional throughout the services performed.
    He walked me around the house, pointed out potential issues and solutions and asked me questions about my concerns.  He then reviewed the structural plans for the repairs that were made and we headed under the house to review the work.  He pointed out what issues he saw, why they did the repairs a certain way, and what they were lazy/sloppy in executing.  After the review, he walked me through the plans and explained what they had done and related it back to what we saw.  He then recommended a list of what he would do to fix the areas, and explained how the repairs should be performed.  Thankfully, it was nothing serious.
    Surprise!   The seller apparently told his structural engineer/contractor that we were there, and the other structural engineer showed up at the inspection unannounced.  The engineer from the other firm was very defensive and tried to argue with Francisco.  Francisco was very polite and explained his opinion to him on the plans and the execution of the work (the plans were above and beyond what the homeowner needed to do, but in Francisco's opinion, there was some vagueness and additional reinforcements/corrections he suggested as precautions due to some sloppiness/laziness from the execution of the plans.  Despite the other engineer leaving angry, Francisco stayed calm, explained why he was recommending the repairs, and put me at ease.
    I would highly recommend him if you need some peace of mind or need a second opinion.  He seemed very knowledgeable and conducted himself very professionally.
