Reviews in Richmond for Installing Retaining Walls

Oakhurst Geotechnical Services LLC
5.0
Bob was very personable and his knowledge on the subject was immediately apparent. He laid out all my options and didn't pressure me in the least to spend more money than was necessary. If I should need the services of a structural engineer in the future, I will not hesitate to call on him again.

JES Foundation Repair
4.0
JES submitted a creative and affordable solution, but the JES engineer assigned to the job left the company before the job was finished. Though the job turned out well, and we were very satisfied, we had to do much of the overseeing and work checking ourselves. The work site was not neatly maintained (e.g., tools all over the place). The completion of the job was not done in a timely manner, but that was somewhat understandable given the personnel turnover. Given the high quality of the work, I was tempted to give a grade of A, but I just couldn't because of the reasons just mentioned.

Randall A Strawbridge Inc
5.0
I contacted several structural engineering companies when a home inspector said the home I wanted to buy had a possible structural issue. The big companies had a long wait period for an engineer and they also had hefty fees and couldn't do a flat rate job. I called Randall A Strawbridge, and he was available within a few days for a flat rate. He came prepared with overalls and a mask for filtering dust so he could crawl up into the house crawlspace and examine the structural issue. I crawled in with him, and he pointed out what he was looking at and what was wrong with the house. He provided a report with drawing in a few days. I would highly recommend Mr. Strawbridge.

This guy is an amazing engineer. He can design anything, in any style, whether it be an addition, entire home, business, including sunrooms and garages. He is very good at remodeling designs and his price is very reasonable. Having been a successful home builder in the past, he knows construction and building codes. Other builder's depend on his expertise and enjoy working with him. My requirements were very specific (e.g. all doors handicap accessible, first floor master). He came up with different designs for me to consider in laying out my floor plan to make it more efficient and save money. He was very patient with me considering this is the first house I have built. He answered all of my questions and never made me feel ignorant (although I was very ignorant about many architectural things such as finding the right parcel of land, soil reports, septic tanks, drain fields, drilled wells, and the whole health permit and building permit processes). If I had an idea he didn't think would work, he would show me why and find an alternative way to achieve what I wanted. I could take him pictures of things I liked (e.g. doors, outdoor trim, built-in bookshelves) and he would explain to me the process to incorporate them in the design, and could ball-park the majority of the costs, and give me alternate suggestions and ideas I would have never thought of. There is literally no wasted space as he designed my first floor rooms (i.e. study, dining, kitchen, master bed/bath, family room) to branch off the rotunda he placed in the middle of the house (including a plaster dome in the ceiling over an exquisite, yet affordable, wood floor medallion). It turned out better than I could have ever expected. He worked closely with my builder and provided advice and guidance to the subs when needed. Mr. Price was able to educate me on the building process, answer all my questions, and refer me to different businesses (e.g. Fergusons, Agri-Supply), highly experienced closing attorney (i.e. Michelle Ferris of Ferris and Ferris in Midlothian), and a survey company (i.e. Baseline in Petersburg). I was able to find the best deals thanks to his personal referrals and introductions. Thanks to Mr. Price, I now have a dream home more beautiful than I could have ever expected. His excellent work product, cool ideas, and extraordinary design skills significantly increased the appraisal of my home. I'm moving in with a significant amount of equity already on the books. The results were remarkable given the current state of the economy. Turns out it was cheaper for me to build a home with exactly what I need, rather than finding an existing home and remodeling it to meet my requirements. I highly recommend Mr. Price of Netcad Drafting, Inc. as a very experienced engineer with excellent people skills. I could not have made it through the difficult process of building a new home without his experience, assistance, patience and kindness. He is a true master when it comes to architectural design and building processes. I have no hesitation in recommending his services.

Net Cad Drafting
3.0
Their drafting is basic, standard and fast so their product wasn't detailed enough for what I wanted. They were originally supposed to give me full drawings with structural advice because they are a structural engineering group. They only gave me a drawing of what the addition would look like. They were not very responsive when I was sending emails back and forth to correct any mistakes. Initially they were good. I stopped using them because I could draw better drawings myself. Their price was very reasonable if I didn't have experience at all using Cad. It was reasonable and affordable. The quality was okay. Initially their responsiveness was good. They were originally punctual and not punctual after the fact. They were late on sending me the drafts and then they were not responsive. I have since brushed up on my Cad skills so I won't need them.

Not very well. They are not what is represented on their website. They may do good work, but their way of trying to sell you things you don't need, instead of helping you understand your issue that you called them about is not what I expected, The salesman never emailed me his report, or estimates, either. But I did get an online survey, which I give them good marks on thinking they were going to follow through with the promised report, and estimate to fix it. Next time I'll wait until the "product" is delivered. So I prematurely gave them a good recommendation. However, to be fair, they were punctual when they came.

Recent Review: It did go very well! I need to start the improvement of my covered patio, with some structural modifications needed. They provided all the necessary guidance for both being code compliant and filing a permit request to start working. Good Job!

Recent Review: Robert is obviously an expert in the field of structural engineering. We discussed my concrete wall problem in great detail. He is very busy at this time, and we need to find a time when we are both available to inspect the wall.
