Mr. Arnsdorf, was able to fit me in to his schedule the same day and it was seriously a blessing! He was on time and very well versed on things I could do and needed to do to protect my property. Mr.Arnsdorf, provided a detailed report the same day as well! Great job!

Dave quickly assessed our situation, made actionable and practical recommendations to fit our budget.

5.0 Joseph Y. Highland, MI

We hired Dave to look at our house(2/2019) before removing a load bearing wall, and are extremely happy with the structural integrity of our home after following his advice. He gave us a detailed plan that was easy to follow, and we were able to meet our goals with his knowledge. He was very professional and easy to work with.

Structural analysis was simple and well explained. Was approved, we will have the city inspection soon. I’m sure it will pass. Everything looks great. Thank you!

4.0 David T. Canton, MI

The knowledge of Mr. David Arnsdorf regarding structural engineering was excellent. He arrived on time as scheduled, which was appreciated. In fact, he accommodated me with a schedule time change with relative short notice. After agreeing on a price during the initial consultation, which was five hours at $125.00 per hour, I discovered Mr. Arnsdorf had raised the price to six hours at $125.00 per hour without any advance notice or explanation on his invoice. After several unanswered e-mails regarding the unexpected price increase, I was finally informed by Mr. Arnsdorf that the extra time charged was due to the fact that he needed the extra time to design my job, so it would be easier for me complete the work. It would have been better had he explained the price was not final and could go up in advance at the outset of our initial consultation. In fact, when Mr. Arnsdorf found it necessary to raise the price, he could have at least explained why in his invoice or informed me via e-mail or telephone call, which would have helped avoid the confusion and minor dissension that followed. Overall, I would recommend Mr. Arnsdorf for your structural engineering needs, just beware that the price could change from the initial quote.

5.0 Steven L. Ann Arbor, MI

David was prompt, kind, and gave me confidence in the repairs needed for my home foundation. Also he was very clear and kind on pricing for his service.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
