Engineering Services

Our company was founded on providing the common home owner with experienced structural engineering services at a fair price. We understand that home owners have very tight budgets and the need for information to help them make decisions about their home. Thousands of our clients have consulted with us to discuss if foundation repair will benefit their homes and family. We have helped home owners remodel their homes by locating load bearing walls, designing retaining walls, designing foundations and the framing for new room additions. We have crawled underneath homes to help develop foundation repair plans for pier and beam foundations. We are the type of engineers that crawl into plumbing tunnels to see what concrete is broken and advise on how to fix it. 

We truly enjoy and love practicing engineering. We are human that make mistakes in booking appointments or getting reports out late; we make typos, work late hours, drink more coffee than what we should and from time to time we take vacations. But one thing is for sure, everyday our staff of engineers and project coordinators strive to bring value to your project and provide you with personal attention that only humans can provide. However imperfect it maybe at times or whatever your project size or budget is, we value all of our clients and thank you for your business.
