Reasonable, professional, and knowledgeable

Building inspector gave me some issues and CJ took care of all the problems with new engineered load bearing wall drawings. Good communication and encouraged me to tackle the project myself as the home owner. Glad it all worked out. Just passed inspection.

Chris recently designed the support structure for a large deck on my house in Framingham - he was very helpful, took time to check out a code problem that could come up about railings, and the turnaround was quite quick. He even gave me 11X17" copies because it was hard to see some of the support piers in the downscaled drawings - and the drawings are beautiful - highly recommended.

I hired Chris at CJ Associates to produce an engineering design and drawing for a deck project that I'm building myself on a tight turnaround. Since I'd decided to add a 12-foot diameter gazebo to the deck, the town required a drawing from a professional structural engineer. I'm so glad I found Chris! He was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. Literally within an hour of submitting my request, we'd set up a time for him to come by two days later. He sent the first drawing to me a few days after that, and we iterated a couple times on the design. We brainstormed about different ideas and approaches, and I'm very thankful that he took the time to walk me through what he did and why he designed it that way. I'm an engineer as well (aerospace) and I love to understand the rationale for various design decisions. Plus, I've only built one other deck in my life (over 20 years ago) and it was great to be able to talk through parts of the structure I wasn't as confident in building. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with how collaborative the process went, since this was a small job. So I submitted the permit application and drawing, waited to hear back and... the town couldn't grant the permit without a full land survey ($2,000 and over 4 week delay) because they said the design might be encroaching on a 15-foot setback distance to the property line. In a panic, I asked Chris if there was anything else I could do. Even though he'd finished his part of this project, he was still invested in making it succeed. He told me about the process and what had worked in the past for him on other jobs. I was just about to throw in the towel and get the land survey when Chris convinced me to change the design to align it with the existing, grandfathered deck line. He changed the drawing quickly, I brought it to the town and... less than a week later I had my permit. Chris was a wonderful resource throughout this process. I look forward to working with him again on other projects and highly recommend CJ Associates!

5.0 Tim A. Shrewsbury, MA

Very thorough and found the answer to my problem very quickly. Would not hesitate to call again if another issue popped up.

5.0 Paul C. Hudson, MA

Chris was extremely helpful. Called me back on a Sunday and scheduled an immediate appointment. His is vey knowledgeable and understood not only the engineering, but understood my situation as a potential home buyer. Excellent experience.

5.0 Joseph O. Westborough, MA

Highly recommended!! Our town required us to get a drawing and stamp for remodel work in our house. We didn't know who to turn to and felt stuck. Luckily Chris called us immediately after placing the project on Home-advisor and was able to turned things around. He had a drawing and stamp for us very quickly. He even hand delivered the drawing to our house, hows that for service? He did the work for a very reasonable price!

5.0 Tuan D. Westborough, MA

Very responsive to the customer need. Highly recommended....

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
