How do you know who to call?

When you need to know if your home will be OK, it’s not clear who to call.  Will your engineer be experienced in what you need? What do his customers say? Does he have SUPRA access? Is he a registered Structural Engineer? How many years has he been doing this? 
Call us. We’ll help you. 

Structural piers / Special inspector

Foundation cracks

Slab movement
Stairstep cracks

Great online reviews

Every company you call has a story about how they’re awesome. What if you could actually hear from that company’s customers? Oh wait – you can.

Transparent pricing

On-site opinion - no written report


Inspection & verbal report only

Sometimes you just need to know. Or sometimes you find out it’s bad news and you just want to walk away. 

Inspection, opinion & report


Inspection & written report

This is the full report. There may be travel fees for inspections outside of Salt Lake and Utah counties.

Inspection, opinion & written report with PE stamp


Inspection with written & stamped report

The PE stamp is a certification. Usually the stamp is only needed if there is a lender, lawyer or city involved. 

Engineers do podcasts?

An engineer does a podcast? Isn’t that like being left brained and right brained at the same time? It does take an unusual sort of structural guy to leave the office and his computer, so maybe it’s possible – who knew? 

Yes! We have SUPRA access

We have been a trusted member and affiliate of the real estate community since 1993. If the home has a SUPRA box along the Wasatch Front, we can probably get access. 

  • We like simple. Simple pricing makes everyone happy. Still, sometimes life gets less simple – there are times when we have to charge a bit more. One example of this is when we have to drive a bit further to get to you. Salt Lake and Utah County? No problem. Logan or Cedar City? That will cost more. Multi unit apartment building? Yeah. If your project needs one or two problems to solve? No problem. Many? That might be more. Promises for payment that we have to wait, hope and nag for? First, please no. Really – just no. If we must , then we have to charge you a bit more to help make up for the last guy that made us promises and didn’t pay. That’s why we say that these prices apply only if you pay on the date of the service. You get the idea. Simple is good. More complex is OK, but we might have to change the prices.
