I hired them to assess the potential for a structural issue at our home. I reviewed all the pertinent history of the specifics within a particular room, he questioned me and we also reviewed the potential exterior issues. He reviewed his conclusions and explained everything in detail. Both my wife and I were very pleased with his final report which repeated everything he had explained to us. Money well spent!

An excellent evaluation of mild concrete apron sinkage in front of garage doors, deteriorating columns in front of house, driveway cracking, attic structure and insulation, and suggestions regarding chimney. Quick to respond to phone & email. I give Paul a 5-Star high recommendation.
