Reviews in San Antonio for Installing Retaining Walls

A-1 Engineering
5.0
The engineer, Moises Cruz, did a complete visual assessment of our pier-and-bean foundation. He crawled under the house and checked out each pier, the soil beneath the house, and did a visual check on the interior and exterior of the house. His analysis was invaluable to us, as at least one foundation company claimed we needed over $12,000 worth of work. Mr. Cruz pointed out a few issues that will be substantially cheaper to resolve and will have a far greater impact on the overall stability of our property. He was very professional, friendly, and competent. If anyone suspects that they may have foundation problems, I would highly recommend calling A-1 to get an honest assessment from a neutral third-party, rather than a foundation repair company.

I called with a very short time frame for having a roof truss inspection and Fernando who answered the phone was so professional, polite, and accommodating in helping to work us into the schedule despite being very busy. We ultimately did not need to have any services done by a structural engineer but will call A-1 Engineering first if we ever do!

Ms Hancock-Gamez is structural engineer and I chose her because she is not connected with a slab repair business. She also has good ratings here. She was very professional and thorough. Her findings indicated minor shifting due to soil type and weather but no break in foundation. Very glad I contacted her for an unbiased assessment.

I had high expectations after reading the other reviews on Angie's List, and I was not disappointed. Mr. Cruz was very professional, but personable as well, and did a great job of educating me as he went through the process of assessing the condition of the foundation. He gave me information about everything that he was analyzing, as well as what all of the findings meant in relation to one another. I would highly recommend him if you are considering hiring a structural engineer.

Moises Cruz arrived on time and was very professional. He was able to explain to us what was needed to handle the issues we face at our home. We look forward to a continued relationship with him, and would refer anyone in need of a structural engineer to A-1 Engineering.

Inspector came on time and spent about 2 hours taking pictures of foundation and cracks in house do to movement. He went in our attic to inspect the structure of the house,.answered any questions we had and made suggestions as what to do to prevent any more problems. We were told by a friend not to call a foundation repair company but a structural engineer company, this saved us thousands of dollars. We would definitely use their services again and recommend their company.

I highly recommend A-1 Engineering. They are structural engineers and give an objective analysis of your foundation. As a result of their findings they saved me thousands of dollars! They also gave me great suggestions to prevent future problems. The people at A-1 Engineering were professional, warm and it was a pleasure to get to work with them.

I ended up hiring A1 because of their great reviews on Angie's list. I have to say the reviews were correct. A1 gave me a written estimate for the cost of the inspection and report since the insurance company was requiring this in order for them to pay for the report. Once the estimate was approved by the insurance company, I scheduled my appointment with A1. They were very friendly, thorough, punctual, and the report was completed and delivered within the week. The report was very well written with lots of details. Based on my experience I would definately hire them again and recommend them to friends.

I initially contacted A-1 because my wife and I were looking at a home for sale. There was some minor cracks in the kitchen tile and we wanted assurances that there would be no further foundation concerns. My wife was there upon the engineers arival and did the walk through with him. He was pleasant and professional at all times. His name was Diego Gorgazzi. His report was thorough and he was superb at discussing any of our concerns. The detailed report he submitted to me was clear and concise. This supasses my expectations of any structural engineers I have dealt with in the past. Thanks for the great service.

I live overseas, and I am undertaking the home-buying process from a remote location. Relying solely on communication via telephone and Internet, it is extremely important that I work with a team of professionals who I trust to act as my eyes and ears in San Antonio, as I buy a home sight-unseen. From my initial phone conversation with Youlanda at A-1 Engineering , I was impressed and felt at ease. Youlanda is extremely knowledgable, and answered all of my questions in layperson's terms. I explained that I currently live overseas and needed to schedule the appointment to coincide with a simultaneous home inspection, as well as my Realtor's schedule, and she did so without a problem. I forwarded A-1 Engineering copies of elevations that detailed previous work performed by an independent structural engineering company on the home's foundation so that the new inspection could be compared to the prior work. Once I had confirmed that the purchase contract was finalized, I paid for the inspection over the Internet with a credit card over a secure webpage, which I found to be an easy process that took less than 5 minutes. According to my Realtor, the licensed professional structural engineer, Moises Cruz, arrived on time and spent several hours thoroughly inspecting the property for any concerns related to the foundation. Two days later I received a comprehensive report, written in professional, yet understandable language which detailed Mr. Cruz's findings. Aside from A-1 Engineering's excellent customer service, expertise, and overall professionalism, I was dually impressed by the report itself. As a layperson knowing "nothing" about foundations, soil, or structural engineering, Mr. Cruz's report was well-written, and laid out in a clear and concise fashion. The report included an executive summary, description, observations, discussion, opinion of probable causes, and closing -- all explained in a way that I could easily understand. Additionally, I am very grateful for the candid objectivity displayed in his report. Any deficiencies observed by Mr. Cruz in the report were substantiated by further detailed explanation, as well as a description as to how the current deficiency may have occurred, and its future ramifications to a potential buyer. After reading and analyzing the report, I called A-1 Engineering to ask a few questions and to confirm my assumptions. Youlanda had mentioned to me that Mr. Cruz was expecting my call, and had asked her to forward my call to him. When Mr. Cruz answered, he took the time to answer all of my questions, and he confirmed my assumptions without bias. After I explained how steep the structural engineering learning curve was for me, and that I had been trying to give myself a crash course, he suggested two websites to further my education: the USDA website soil report tool, so that I could examine the type of soil existing in areas I am interested in, as well as the San Antonio building permit search, so that I can research foundation or other work that seller's may claim has been completed on a property. A-1 Engineering -- especially Moises Cruz and Youlanda, have created a business relationship with me based on trust. They have made me feel at ease, eliminating any additional stress from an already stressful, long-distance, buying situation. I commend them for their professionalism and customer service, and I will be using them for my next inspection. I definitely recommend them to anyone needing a structural engineer to inspect a property during a 10-day option period or for a second opinion on prior foundation/structural work done on a property. Overall, A-1 Engineering has saved me from buying a virtual "money pit" of a home. Without Mr. Cruz's detailed report, I would not have had the objective information to perform my due diligence and decide that this particular property was not suitable for my family.

Diego at A-1 Engineering is an MSE & PE and was outstanding! He and an associate were prompt and eliminated our fears of needing a foundation repair company. They went to all areas of our home both inside, the attic and outside. They measured a slight kitchen floor slope(since construction) that had changed little in seventeen years. Although they discovered cracks, they concluded there was no structural foundation damage. Later Diego wrote a very detailed report on their findings and explained how to minimize cracks in the future. We were very impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. Thank you A-1 Engineering for saving us thousands of dollars! John and Connie Wallace

Mr. Gomez was prompt and professional. He was also polite and courteous. His crews were always quiet and left our home clean at the end of each day of work. They were very hard workers. There were some issues noticed afterward that Mr. Gomez personally took care of and made right. If we need more work done in the future, we would hire Noah's Services again without question.

I was having a problem with my foundation (concrete slab). I noticed cracks all over the place and began to worry. I decided to call out a few foundation repair companies to give me estimates and to help me figure out what I should do next. After three companies came out, all of them told me the same thing (house needed to be leveled) but had varying prices ranging from $3,000 to $14,000. I found that strange. Why would pricing vary so much? Regardless, I chose a company (in my mind) but decided to bring in an independant structural engineer. Thank God I did. Moises from A-1 Engineering was a blessing. He explained to me that in most situations foundation repair is NOT needed. He suggested he do a thorough inspection of foundation/home. After about 2 hours of review and Q/A, he indicated I wouldn't need foundation repair. He said that my home had a natural tilt and that is is VERY common. He indicated he would put together a report that give me a various details about the foundation and how I should manage it going forward. This person saved me at least $60000 if not more. I suggest before you choose to have foundation repair on your home, you give this man a ring. You will get an honest answer from an expert (one who is independant and doesn't offer foundation repair as a service).

Recent Review: My experience was terrible. As I mentioned above I just needed an estimate for their structural inspection and report. If they gave me a good price I had every intention of hiring them. For some reason they could not understand that I needed a simple estimate for the insurance company. They kept saying that in order for them to give me an estimate they would need to come to the house and inspect the property for which they charged. I said fine then give me an estimate for that to which they said they could not until they got to my house and of course they charged for that. As you can see it was a vicious cycle with these people. They were rude and did not return calls in a timely fashion. The person I was dealing with took over 7 days to call me back and all he did was tell me what I described above. Based on my experience these people were difficult to work with and that is why I personally would not hire them for any future projects I may have. You will have to make your own hiring decision based on what I described above. I will tell you this, I did hire the structural engineering firm that had the best and most reviews on Angie's list and they were great. They were even winners of the 2012 Angie's List Super Service Award.

What do customers in San Antonio say about Retaining Wall Installation?

My wife and I were selling our house and had previous foundation work done. We needed to provide a report to the buyer that the foundation was solid. Paul and his team were very responsive to my phone and email inquiries. They followed up within just a couple hours, explained what they would be able to do, and got a time scheduled for the same week. After the inspection they were able to provide their written report without delay. The service quality, customer service, and timeliness of Paul and his team were great and I would not hesitate to use them again.
