Wayne did an amazing job with his calculations and after 15 years I finally have an open kitchen into my dining room. His plans are so detailed and easy to read that I was 100% confident that the contractors could not make any errors and they didn't. The structure is the most important part of any building project and I am so glad I found someone that I trust.

Paul called me back the same day I left him a message inquiring about his service. We played phone tag for a day or so but connected eventually in person. We were in a situation where we needed the inspection done fairly quickly because a potential buyer was being led to believe by the home inspector that there were potential foundation/structural issues with the home. So, we wanted to hire a structural engineer to clear up the concern fairly quickly. Paul is a licensed PE which is what we were looking for. Thankfully, Paul leaves room in his schedule for more time sensitive situations like this so he was able to schedule the inspection within a few days which was a great relief. We walked through our entire home with him and pointed out potential items that may appear to be questionable on the surface. In addition, he inspected all other areas he felt were necessary to formulate an opinion both inside and outside the home. He was able to tell us that day that we did not have foundation or structural issues and recommended a few items to repair that would fully alleviate any visual misunderstandings. We got a detailed report of his findings the very next day complete with many pictures that completely eliminated any future questions regarding the home that could arise. We had some follow up questions and asked Paul to include a little more detail in the report related to a few items that we had been most concerned about. He revised the report very quickly and sent it back again the next day. Being able to resolve this so quickly was priceless. I was very grateful I found Paul on Angie's List and hired him due to the excellent reviews I read. They are all true and he exceeded my expectations. Paul also does home inspections and I would hire him to do that as well on a future home purchase. Look no further for a PE or home inspector.

CBS Complete Building Solutions was able to send out a structural engineer on the same day I requested it! Stephen Hammill (P.E.) came out, on time, carefully inspected my whole house, and gave me alot of new information about my house which was built over 100 years ago. He was able to find a small access point into the crawl space over the former back porch and figure out and tell me that the joists there went the same direction as in the rest of the basement. That information will be needed as I move towards having an outside, locked access door built, which he also recommended. That way the grade of the ground in there can be monitored and keep any water flow slanted away from the foundation. He said he would send me info on which company would be best for repairing cracks in my stucco that are bigger than 1/4". He suggested I could fill ones 1/4" or smaller myself. The main thing is I am no longer stressing that one corner of my house does not have a solid foundation. He checked for a concete pad under the foundation of the house at that corner and said it was there, but it had been put in above the freeze line. The old porch is made of wood, so the wood is expanding and contracting, depending upon the season. The stucco, which was put over the old porch to enclose and make a small room, does not move at all. When the wood moves, it makes cracks in the stucco. Moisture getting inside stucco is bad for it. Allie in their office was great and prompt, accommodated me easily on sending into to both of my e-mail addresses. Stephen was courteous about using my land line so I could hear better. Their license number and reviews and awards they have received is all right there on their website. Solid company. I was referred to them by a realtor friend who recently used them to start the process of getting some support headers installed at their place. Stephen seemed very interested in his work, gave me very careful time in all parts of the house, recommended some work in the attic too, for problem with ice dams I mentioned.

Paul came to our 1942 California Rambler. We were particularly interested in an assessment of the roof as we have a tile roof and there was some sag. Paul spent a considerable amount of time looking at the structure of our house and attached garage. He was very thorough and took a number of pictures. He answered questions along the way and then spent some time after discussing our structure. He also offered an assessment of how it was compared to some new construction and other structures he has assessed. He looked at a bid we had received for repairing our roof and offered his opinion on that, also. Paul did not limit his review to the roof but answered other questions we had, such as which walls were load bearing. Paul then prepared a report, including pictures, for our use.

Steve was able to come the same week, and provided a thorough report quickly on the 2 load bearing walls we wanted to remove, as well as information on the structural integrity of an older addition. Everyone I spoke with at the company was friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone needing this work!

Recent Review: Peter is very thorough with every aspect of his work. He worked with me and my husband to design a deck that would suit our needs, complement our house, and stay within our budget. We were very pleased with the results of the project and love our new deck. Being a structural engineer, we were extremely confident with his expertise. A safe and attractive deck was paramount for us. He did run into an issue outside his expertise and he guided us in finding another professional to correct it. We can't speak highly enough on our experience with Peter, and would hire him again.

Recent Review: Rob did quality work with accurate estimates. He is extremely honest relaying information regarding unexpected issues that may arise. For example, while building steps down a ravine to a river we were informed of all the issues that may arise and involved in all the decisions that had to be made regarding changes to the initial plan. Rob's honesty is unsurpassed .

Recent Review: Highly recommend and excellent person to work with!! Responsive, detailed, honest, and does the job right. We had a complex job of moving our staircase and adding a basement window. Staircase required structural engineering and was a project many people turned down as they felt it was too complicated. In addition, he cut a 5’x4’ + hole through foundation to add a window. He was priced well, and did excellent work. We can’t recommend him enough and look forward to completing more projects with him!

Recent Review: White Crane Construction responded immediately to our request to provide a proposal. The initial meetings with White Crane Construction were held promptly and managed efficiently and the proposal was very clear regarding scope of work. All coordination work including communication regarding needs for dumpster and storage were given well in advance. Materials were ordered and delivered as promised. All milestones for the demolition, repair and reconstruction were met. Housekeeping was excellent during the construction and did not interfere with our household. The original budget was accurate and there were no cost additions. The White Crane Construction Supervisor communicated with us daily on progress and resolved issues quickly. White Crane Construction brought in a structural engineer to verify the issues with the deck and den support structures. The original builder from 2000 had constructed our home with major structural defects. Deck and den supports, footings and concrete and deck joist supports were all inadequate and White Crane Construction and their engineering consultant worked together to address and correct all of these defects. A final waldown was completed and punchlist items were completed quickly and to our satisfaction. We would certainly use White Crane Construction and have recommended them to others.

Recent Review: We originally attempted to get quotes directly from various contractors to remove a structural wall in the middle of our basement (and replace with a single beam). When it became obvious that the contractors did not know how to price this with what size beams or columns we decided to get a structural engineer directly (rather than as part of the contractor's scope). Mattson MacDonald were the most cost effective and because I am an engineer also I believe they were able to complete this using our drawings and measurements (without a site visit). The site visit seemed to be the cost difference that other structural engineers were not able to do without. Therefore, without the site visit their quote was half (or less) than all other quotes (all others included a site visit). Mattson MacDonald were very professional and they provided drawings with more than enough options (multiple sizes of LVLs and steel beams to be able to get proper reasonable quotes from contractors). This enabled us to select the proper size beams to fit in the pocket and provide the most headroom possible in our soon to be finished basement. I sent them the dimensions and information one night and because they were going to be busy for the next week they completed the drawings and calculations that very night. Quick bid, low cost, professional and complete drawings, and quick turnaround. I would recommend them for any structural work (commercial or residential).

Recent Review: We contacted FLB in May 2007. Obtaining an estimate was straightforward & prompt. We were impressed with Gene's candor: he told us that our original design idea would not work out well (he was right) even though it would be more expensive to build. The contract was signed at the end of May. Work began in late June. The block & concrete work went very smoothly. The carpentry portion went too slowly and took most of the summer. Two carpenters assigned to the project worked partial days. The quality of the work was mostly good, although we mentioned several times that the stairway into the garage included steps that were not level. When we were expected to submit our final payment, the company gave them a serious look and a partial rebuild. Final payment was submitted in Sept 2007. Other concerns included the messiness of the crews, poor quality of some materials & opener installation (cord didn't reach new outlet). The company's receptionist is very professional & friendly.

Recent Review: We have been using Innovative for years to help us transform our house and yard. Their teams continue to exceed our expectations on every project. This is a company that cares about the customer, and actually listens to what they want. They seem to really care about their environmental impact. They brought all of our old concrete to a special designated place that recycles the concrete instead of just hauling it to the dump. On several occasions I have seen employees sorting through the construction waste and pulling out cardboard boxes and paper to recycle it. We knew we had a good company when we saw employees not only pick up their own mess (), but actually pick up garbage that was just blowing by and put it in their own pocket. They always made sure our yard was as neat as possible at the end of every day. What has impressed me the most is their communication. It's rare to find a company that actually answers the phone yet alone one that returns your call's when you have a question or issue, but Innovative does just that. There was one time when I called Justin at 8 pm on a Saturday night with a pool light question, and not only did he actually answer the phone, but he took the time to walk me through diagnosing the issue and actually fixing the problem (which was a simple GFCI outlet that needed to be reset). All of the crew members have been very polite and courteous. This is a company that offers exceptional service at a reasonable price, and we will continue to use them in the future.

Recent Review: We had a fire in our garage in February of 2010. Upon Initial contact with the insurance company, they sent out a claims adjustor to look everything over, the adjustor said that it was just minor cosmetic damage that was done by the fire and that a few minor repairs and a new coat of paint should do the trick, however our whole house smelled like smoke and that assessment just did not sit well with us, so we called out Justin Dupont from Dupont Construction, we had them build a custom front porch for us a couple of years before that and do some siding and they had done a very good job. We also remembered that the owner Justin Dupont, had mentioned when he was doing that work, that he had a background in structural engineering, so we thought that he may be able to take a look at the house and let us know if the damage was more extensive than what was being explained to us by the insurance company. We called Justin and let him know about the fire that we had just had, and asked if he could come out and take a look when he got a chance, he was at our house within an hour to take a look for us, he examined the garage as well as crawled up into the scuttle hole in the roof access to see if any damage had been done to the roof trusses. The guy from the insurance company never even acknowledged the scuttle hole or looked inside to see if there was any damage done beyond the garage walls. Upon examining this area, Justin informed us that there was extensive smoke damage as well as some structural damage inside of the roof trusses, and because of how our house was laid out, it was very important that we not stay in our home because we would be breathing in the smoke damage, which could cause serious health risks, he suggested that we contact our insurance agent and let him know that he had come out and inspected the garage and roof area above the garage and that he accessed that there was much more extensive damage done than what was originally found by the adjustor and that it was also not safe for us to stay in the home, The insurance company then arranged for us to stay at a local hotel until the damage could be reviewed by them. A few days later I was hospitalized with pneumonia which the Dr. Told me was greatly aggravated by the smoke inhalation from the fire. I can only imagine how bad it could have been if we did not call Justin out and stayed another night or two in our home breathing in that smoke. Justin worked very closely with our insurance company as well as with a Claims Service company that he had worked with in the past to make sure that our home was properly repaired and that we got all of the compensation from the insurance company that was due to us for the damage of our property as well as all of our personal belongings that had to be replaced. When everything was said and done we had a new garage built, a new driveway installed, a new roof installed on the home, and new siding installed on the home, new windows installed and new doors installed, and we also managed to fit into our budget and save enough money on the repairs and replacements for us to have Dupont Construction and Remodeling, build a beautiful, 24’ x 24’ room addition above our new garage as well as a new 12’ x 12’ four season porch and 10’ x 10’ cedar deck. They did such an excellent job in the big and small details of our projects and they made our home look more beautiful than we ever thought possible, I get compliments almost daily from our neighbors about how great the house looks now, It was more than I could have ever dreamed of and we were so thankful that Justin stood up for us and worked so h****** our project for us and did not just let the insurance company push us around. Once Justin got the go ahead from the insurance company to complete the repairs. He had everything already ready to go and it was all set in motion. We stopped by the house every other day or two to check on things and could not believe how fast the crews were able to get things re-built. He was given the go ahead to start the first week of August and he gave us an estimated project completion date of October 15th to build the new garage, addition and porch as well as install the new roofing and siding, windows and doors. We received a call in Late September from Justin informing us that they were going to be done ahead of schedule and we could move back into our home on October 1st, we were so thrilled and pleased with the whole process.

Recent Review: Honestly, we already miss having them here. They were so entertaining and know how to give and take. I want to buy another house just to have them work on it. They are reasonably priced and were perfectly willing to work around us living in the house and let us do the finish work ourselves. The only minus was the electrical sub contractor, he nickle and dimed us on every single thing, and Craig was displeased with that as well. But that may be because I didn't lay out my electrical plans as clearly as I should have. Overall I'd hire Kron Renovations again in a heartbeat.
