    We found some questionable work done during a remodel by the previous owner which could compromise the structure. Anthony came by on a Sunday to inspect it, he had realistic repair recommendations that didnt involve tearing out most of our ceiling and floors. He then did a walk through of the 96 year old house (even though this wasnt part of the issue) just to see if there were any other problems, and found a few other things we should do to maintain our investment. Great guy, worth every penny.

    Anthony was exactly who I needed to decide on a strategy for fixing my sinking enclosed porch. He analyzed the issue, explained how it could have gotten this way and told me exactly how it could be remedied, all with a very down-to-earth, generous and friendly manner. AFM (and Home Advisor) did good!

    I found Anthony through Home Advisor. I needed a structural engineer to look over some walls in my house. Anthony was thorough and was able to answer all the questions we had. We even hired him again for another project that we wanted to complete. He was honest and professional. I would definitely recommend Anthony to whoever needs a structural engineer.

    I brought them in to evaluate the structure. Unfortunately what I got was a repeat of what the home inspector gave us.

    Response from Company:

    It's unfortunate most home owners/buyers automatically feel the urge to have a home inspection done, when in essence really should a licensed Structural Engineer provide a report to avoid being charge twice.

    I found out about AFM by walking past their office front. I reached out via email and within the same day received a personalized response from Tony. He came out to the property the very next day. He was personable and thorough. He made accommodations to adapt and work around my timeline in order to deliver on the structural plans I needed. Tony helped me reach my deadline and I was able to submit for my building permit. The plans were approved without the need for any revisions. Pricing was very fair. As a new homeowner, undertaking a serious home renovation project is extremely daunting. Tony's expertise and approach made me feel I had an experienced and trusted ally on my side.

    Asked for structural review of property When guy comes wanted me to show what I think is wrong. I did show him my concerns but I was expecting that an actual structural review would be done and that the expert review would either confirm or dispel my concerns. Kept asking If I was selling my house. My home inspection was more in depth; thus, I was expecting more from the structural inspection. Verbal recommendations were given however I did not opt to pay the additional for the written report because I did not feel the inspection was thorough. Was not worth the money for the type of service "I received" and I feel that I still need a second opinion.

    Response from Company:

    After dealing, one-on-one, with thousands of large and small individual home, building and business owners, I have long-learned, and accepted, that every 'once and a while' there is client that I provide service to that is unsatisfied. Very infrequently, as in this case, the homeowner did not fully (was unable) to fully explain the condition(s) of the house. My cost of services, too, is often a factor. Homeowner, ( Consumer name withheld per their request ) called and we spoke. She said she "may have a structural problem in the bathroom. The floor may be sinking, and she is concerned of the foundation shifting"; these are the notes that I wrote done on my inquiry/worksheet. She booked me 2+ weeks in advance, which is rare (most folk want me quickly as possible). I arrived to a very, very, very distressed 115+ year old Brownstone home, clearly crying for help - requiring a gut rehab. But I did not comment on this, as I was there to inspect and assess 'her structural concern at the bathroom and possibly foundation'. Rather than me "search" the entire building to find her bathroom (like a child playing a game of hide-n-seek), I requested for her to again tell me what was wrong (this also confirms that what I wrote on my sheet was correct and I was there for the same purpose). She showed me her concern, her purpose of her call ---- the bathroom and the sloped floor and breaking floor tile around the toilet. We then went below into the cellar. Under the bathroom I found cut, modified, butchered floor joists. She also pointed out another area in the rear of her kitchen, where is there is old damage to the wood floor joists, which I examined and assessed. I also examined the foundation, the balance of the ground floor joists and other part of the cellar (plumbing, boiler, front chute). Additionally, a very critical hazardous condition I pointed out that she had serious fireblocking deficiencies in the cellar, drainage problems in the rear yard, and the must for a new roof (as evidenced by the wet, plaster falling from the top floor ceiling onto polyethylene tarps). The lack of fireblocking, ALONE, throughout the cellar could lead to the destruction of the entire building (by fire) or human life (by gases). We walked the house, and I advised her the house if fairly level and in "very normal shape structurally for a house this age, and overall, the house is "structurally" stable". The structural part of this building is the best part of the house. Luckily, the homeowner need to address small, modest, localized repairs to the ground floor wood joists in the kitchen and bathroom. The house is in such disrepair (other than structurally), it is nearly inhabitable. The house requires a full 'gut-rehab', removal and replacement of all contents. I recommend the homeowner stop spending her money on inspections and engineers, and opinions, etc., and start spending money to make her place habitable. Rather than ( Consu

    Tony Marmo came out to look at the bathroom in my apartment because I was concerned about the structural integrity. I was in a bit of a pinch and he came over immediately. He was SUPER helpful. Reviewed it and explained to me exactly what was going on. He even provided me with an official report so that I could sleep soundly knowing my bathroom was safe and intact.
