Why an Engineer?
Permit inspectors check only a few items on and around your foundation which is good for identifying issues, but their reports often lack complete solutions. The items that they might miss could be critical to the long-term stability of your home. For many of us, our homes are still the biggest investments we ever make. Purchasing, selling, remodeling or refinancing your home is BIG business. Foundation engineers provide specialized inspections and assessments to assure you get what you pay the foundation repair contractor to provide.
A professional engineer is an experienced and knowledgeable engineer who is licensed in your state. Only licensed professional engineers are required by law to protect your life and possessions above all other factors.
Before remodeling your home, it is important to research the laws in your area because many cities require design calculations and drawings to be stamped by a professional engineer for permit work.

A foundation engineer will look out for your interests during all structural work on your home. They will assess and evaluate the extent of the damage and recommend procedures to solve the issues.
