I called him to examine an issue found during a home inspection. He came out quickly, took pictures, examined inside and out. Gave a verbal report that was quickly followed by a written one. This allowed us to quickly move past this issue and on with selling our home.

No way would I recommend Dave to anybody after my experience. He didn't take any pictures, notes or measurements during his assessment. The first set of drawings he gave me to the county failed inspection due to a lack of details. He cited the wrong building code design criteria on the stamped drawings and had to be reminded of changes/adjustments repeatedly. After the drawings failed, he fixed them but didn't stand by the quality of his work and charged me additional money. Dave repeatedly said he'd have things done by a certain day, and then it was delayed again and again. One thing I really don't like about structural engineers in general is that they do not provide you with a CAD export of the drawings. You're locked into their services unless you're willing to pay somebody else to completely rework the drawings from scratch. In my case, it was an easy decision to go with another engineer and eat the cost for new drawings. I paid Dave what we agreed to initially and then some. I made changes that Dave accommodated for a premium. I don't feel I got my money's worth and after talking with additional professionals, I am not alone in my opinion.
Response by DRH Engineers, PLC: I am very much surprised at this review. Frankly this is a case where the customer did a lot of work without permits and was cited and then asked me to accommodate his deadlines set by the County Inspector which were unrealistic. I told him the initial submission would probably have comments because of the rush and the plans would need to be adjusted. I was basically working for him at an initial low fee with changes and revisions on an hourly basis. He never expressed any displeasure with my work while I was working with him and even stated my fees were much lower than other engineers. In hind sight I should not have taken on the project.

I have answered your survey once before, you have called me about this, if I receive any more emails, or phone calls I will never use your service again. The only disappointing part of dealing with this company, is you keep calling me and sending me emails. I used your service I told you recommendation for a engineer was great, now leave me alone I have no time for this ridiculous nonsense.

He showed up on time, did the work, got us a report back in a quick manner, but he was higher priced than all of the other professionals of his type, but we need the work quickly and he was able to provide that.

Dave Hall is a highly competent structural engineer, who combines his professional skills with very clear feedback and guidance. Dave specifically tells you if something requires fixing and how to get it fixed, in the safest and most cost-effective manner. His thoroughness and timeliness of reporting are precisely what I needed. If you need structural engineering services, contact Dave Hall. You can't go wrong!

PROJECT: ANALYZE A STRUCTURAL ISSUE: Dave was extremely helpful and took the time to answer all of my questions and did a complete walk through of the property to address all concerns. I will be calling on him in the future when the need indicates a structural engineer. I especially appreciated the fact that he was fair and honest about what was required and not required by the DC government. (Reviewed by Aaron T)

A flat rate for less than an hours work seemed a little high, $550. Knew what he was talking about though.
