Please note, we're not House or home inspectors, we are Structural Engineers who do house and home inspections (i.e. assessments) for structural problems with the house. Usually, if you're buying or refinancing a house or home, the mortgage company will send a home or house appraiser who checks everything in the house; if there's anything structurally suspicious with the house or home, then the inspector will recommend hiring a structural Engineer.
Also, we work with many homeowners who feel they have foundation problems or structural problems in general with their homes. In this case, we would go an inspect (i.e. assess) the house for structural problems and provide you with a report.
We take our Engineering Profession Very seriously, with the highest degree of attention following codes and acceptable Engineering practice. Please refer to our different types of Structural Inspections.
We provide a wide range of Structural Engineering Services, we mainly concentrate in Residential Structural Engineering in San Antonio Texas. Within Residential Structural Engineering we provide Foundation Engineering design, as well as home or residential Structural inspections for foundations, wall framing and bracing, and floor and roof framing. We can also provide Structural Engineering design for retaining walls.
We can do Structural Engineering designs of concrete retaining walls, Block retaining walls, and virtually any type of retaining wall that you want. If you need a retaining wall Structural Engineer design or even a retaining wall Structural Engineer inspection, then you might want to be familiar with , which describes in detail the permit requirements as well as retaining wall Structural Engineering requirements. A good summary of the retaining wall publication by the city is that any wall 4ft or higher requires a structural engineer to design the foundation and wall of the retaining wall.
The structural Engineering design of Foundations can either be a Structural concrete slab foundation as well as pier and beam type of foundations.
It's important to know that we are unbiased in giving you our Structural Engineer Report if we see anything wrong with your foundation because we are not contractors so we don't provide the physical repair of the Foundation. Many Structural Engineering Firms out there provide physical repair of Structural foundations (directly or indirectly) which believe means their opinion is biased with an inherent conflict of interest.
If you hire us for your home inspection (i.e. assessment) thinking that you may have Structural foundation problems we'll give you our opinion without having the conflict of interest that many other structural engineering companies or firms have because we don't gain anything by telling you that you have a Structural Foundation problem.
Many times we are called to perform a Structural foundation inspection after another structural engineering company or firm that provides Structural foundation inspection and Structural foundation repair services claims that the house has foundation problems; in fact, many times we are called to perform a Structural Foundation inspection after even two Structural foundation repair companies have been called to inspect the Structural Foundation and they provide dissenting view on the mater. In other words, we're called as an independent third party structural engineer to perform a Structural Engineering Foundation inspection and give an independent opinion... Many times there's nothing wrong with your concrete foundation and the structure of you house! Save yourself time and money by hiring us first as your primary Structural Engineer and let us give you a recommendation of whether you need to hire someone to repair your foundation. Please read our article on Foundation Repair.
Just because you have cracks in your concrete foundation it doesn't mean you have foundation problems. The nature of Concrete is to crack, the real question is, is the concrete foundation cracking because of temperature and shrinkage, or is it because of soil movement below the concrete foundation? Again, an experienced structural engineer, who doesn't perform repair services, is the best structural engineer qualified for a non biased foundation inspection. But even if it is cracking due to Foundation Movement, the crack themselves may not indicate actual foundation failure.
We can also provide you with wall bracing letters for the City of San Antonio Texas advising the city that the structure is safe.
Many times we've worked with Banks, Mortgage brokers, Realtors and Homeowners, in providing home or residential structural inspections. We are also very fast in providing you with our Structural Engineer Report.
