Additional Information

Our first conversation will cover the basic project details, schedule, and fee. We try to schedule the appointment within a week, at which time we visually assess the scope of the situation and discuss with you the desired results and the next steps. We take the time to answer your questions so you can make informed decisions, but at your request we will issue a Letter of Findings outlining our recommendations. By receiving payment at the time of the site visit, we can issue letters within a week – much quicker than waiting for billing and payment. Fees vary depending on distance and complexity. To ensure that we are meeting our high standards, we will always have a licensed Professional Engineer conduct the site visit.
