Have proposal which easily confuses, also found confict of interest as they have their own construction company want make everything defective.
Response by Area Engineering, Inc.: This project pertained to two old decks on the property, flagged by the local county building code officials as being structurally suspect. This customer leases the property to tenants, so this became a difficulty for him. Despite our assessment, this customer did not agree with many of the observed structural problems and voiced his issues repeatedly as if to sway our professional opinion to accept the poorly constructed conditions. Unfortunately, a language barrier created a problem with this customer. He was not able to understand our communication, even though we thought it was clear, until after he hired us and we performed his work. We provided a discount for the services to try to accommodate him but he was not appeased. There is no conflict of interest. All of the problems were in direct code violation and are considered unsafe. We understand that he is not happy about it however this review is unjust. We have found that bad reviews are often written when a person does not receive the results they are looking for. This is one example. We still wish him well and have offered to help this customer with his problem by assisting him in obtaining a permit for his work.

Had heaving in the basement, concrete floor is cracked, and I was worried about a possible collapse. Area techs came out examined the structure and put my mind at ease. They were prompt and answered all my questions. Now I'm deciding whether to remove entire floor and pour a new one this year or next.
