Reviews of Residential Engineers Near You

Edram General Construction Llc
5.0
Edram Construction provided multiple options for proper and safe repair of a timber support beam. As part of the initial quote, the options were explained in detail and we were able to come to consensus on a satisfactory repair despite my own lack of knowledge in the area. The engineer was knowledgeable and provided an accurate estimate before the work began and was available on site for most of the day. The workers were professional, respectful, and friendly. They protected the area and kept it clean. Upon completion, the only evidence that work was done was as agreed. The nearby affected drywall, paint, and trim was replaced as good as new and still matching the untouched surrounding areas. The work was completed in a single day and overall it went very well.

Kemp Home Inspections, LLC
5.0
I reached out to Kemp Home Inspections for a 3rd opinion on the cause for exterior brick and mortar cracks on my 1941 colonial in Arlington. I'm a single female homeowner with no technical background. One structural engineer said lintel failure; a 2nd said serious foundation concerns that would be costly to repair. Greg came out after reviewing the first engineer's report, talked with me for about 10-15 minutes, explained his process, then spent the better part of an hour taking measurements and photos of the inside and outside of my house and attic. When he was done, he explained his findings to me and the basis for his conclusions (happily, no foundation issues). He identified areas of potential concern and what I could do to monitor them over time. His comments and subsequent report reassured me that my house is actually in pretty good shape. Greg saved me tens of thousands of dollars! He is prompt, friendly, and professional and his office staff are the same as well. If you are in need of a home inspection, you will not go wrong to hire Kemp.

Very prompt in getting me an appt (in one week) for engineer to look at our home/foundation. We were getting cracks in the house. Received a report after we paid the initial cost of $485 for the engineer to come out and look at our house. My husband went through with the engineer. My husband said that he (engineer) was very thorough. The estimate for repair is very steep and we have to think about it for a while before we get the work completed.

Deska Foundation Repair and Basement Waterproofing
5.0
The project went very well. First, one of Deska's engineers came out to perform a structural evaluation on my foundation. He clearly communicated to me and provided a very detailed report that explained what the problems were regarding my settling foundation. The report specified some recommendations for repair and we proceeded to have the work done with Deska. They installed 14 helical piers and "underpinned" my foundation. The project was on time and on budget and all of the workers were very respectful and cleaned up after themselves. While they were there I inquired about adding an egress window to add an extra bedroom to my home. They were able to do this at a discounted rate since apparently they already had most of the needed resources on the job. I was thrilled to have the job done, an extra bedroom, and I no longer have to worry about the issue.

GEOFREEZE

I needed to have the structural inspection and report completed very quickly so that a report could be filed with the architectural review board in my area. Geofreeze worked with me to get an engineer to my property within two days. The engineer was extremely knowledgeable. He did a complete inspection of my garage and the neighboring garage. He gave me a thorough oral report immediately after the inspection and provided a written report within 24 hours. I was very satisfied with the engineer, his inspection, and the service provided by Geofreeze.

APAC ENGINEERING INC
5.0
Robert was highly recommended by an architect friend to consult on a foundation issue. He assessed the situation, walked us through his recommendations for repair, and drew up the plans to be used by the contractor. Additionally, he spoke with the county permitting office when we hit some roadblocks with the permit, and agreed to meet the county inspector (at the inspector's request) to review the work upon completion. Robert is very personable, professional, and able to explain complex engineering work to laypeople.

Kemp Home Inspections, LLC
5.0
I called Kemp Home Inspections for an evaluation of the crawlspace under my home built in 1932. Jill, structural engineer, arrived on time for the evaluation and reduced my anxiety by explaining how the inspection process would work. She inspected the living space first to look for any indications of structural problems; using laser technology to detect any slopes in the floors. She inspected around the perimeter of the house and then went into the crawlspace. She was very thorough and the entire process took 3 hours. Jill went over all of her findings with me and explained possible remediations. I received her report a few days later. It was excellent- clear and easy to understand. Jill was very knowledgeable and personable and I really enjoyed interacting with her. I highly recommend her!!!

JCabido Remodeling
5.0
I had a major retaining wall project. The wall was 80ft long by 3ft high and ran under the corner of my house which required underpinning. The guys were professional, clean and efficient. They started the project in mid-March just as the pandemic shut down jitters started. The team worked with me to keep safe and monitor the situation. They finished on time and did extra work (needed to removed rotten wood under house before underpinning). Although they were more expensive than some of the other bids, their work and service was worth it. I highly recommend Bernard and team for major projects.

STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING SLTNS
5.0
He is pretty good, overqualified to PhD. He is just very knowledgeable. When I was looking to remove a wall to open up a rump, so he had to look at the bearing structures and he gave me a design what would be required for the beam and all of that. I was impressed. He was professional. Price wise, I contacted six different people and he was about half of most.

Kamran Ohi P E
5.0
Our realtor requested that we get an engineering report completed for the sagging roofline on the house we were selling. Kamran was extremely accommodating and flexible. He came out the day after I called him. He took his time looking at the issue (one corner of carport sagging due to no proper footing). He discussed options, including explaining how we could fix it ourselves. He offered to look at the interior of the house as well to assess the actual foundation. He assisted in finding me a worker to complete the work (although it wasn't completed as of this date due to weather and other issues, not Kamran's fault). Provided a written report as soon as I requested it. He made himself available by phone for any questions I had and offered to speak to my realtor if my realtor had questions.. Excellent service!

That crack in your foundation might be harmless, but it could also be a sign something larger is wrong.

When you notice a foundation crack in your home, you'll need to hire the services of a structural engineer. Here are some questions to ask when hiring structural engineers to help ensure that you'll get a fair deal.

1. Are you licensed and insured?

Licensing requirements for structural engineers vary from state to state, but if a structural engineer you're considering working with isn't licensed and insured, they aren't worth the money.

2. How much do structural engineers near me cost?

Hiring a structural engineer won't come cheap, but you can at least make sure that you're paying a reasonable sum for the job. Most structural engineers charge by the hour, and the average reported fee charged by one of these specialists is about $300 - $500. If a structural engineer provides an estimate that includes an unreasonably high hourly rate, they had better be the best in their field.

3. What is your professional opinion?

While a structural engineer might need to come to your home to determine whether or not their services are called for, most of these professionals can learn enough from a simple phone call to know whether or not a home visit is necessary.

Facts about structural engineers near you:

  • Structural engineering is a subset of civil engineering.
  • A structural engineer focused on architecture and buildings during their college career.
  • A structural engineer ensure foundations, walls, framing, garages, homes and floors will hold the required weights.
  • A civil engineer helps build larger works such as roads, dams, tunnels, power stations, public utilities, aqueducts and bridges.
