5.0 Pamela A. Allison Park, PA

Firas was wonderful to work with. Service was extremely prompt, detailed and professional. If the need arises I will definitely use this company again! Highly recommend!

Response from Company:

Thank you, Pam! It was a pleasure working with you!

5.0 Michael G. Washington, DC

Pittsburgh Design and Engineering Services is hands-down THE company you need to use for any and all structural engineering needs. I placed a house under contract that had foundation issues and was both nervous and concerned about what the repairs might entail. Firas, the owner, responded to my inquiry within an hour and was very accommodating in scheduling the onsite visit. His knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail seriously cannot be beaten. He correctly identified and quantified the issues at hand--something two other contractors I had brought out failed to do. I am so happy I spent the extra money to have him come out, as it has made me much more comfortable in my upcoming purchase and I am now using his observations as points of leverage in my negotiations with the seller. I would highly recommend Pittsburgh Design and Engineering Services to anyone and everyone who is involved with real estate (both commercial and residential) and in need of the expertise of a structural engineer. Firas is one of the most down-to-earth, honest, and knowledgeable professionals I have come across in the greater Pittsburgh area and I look forward to doing business with this firm for years to come.

Response from Company:

Thank you very much Mike for taking the time to write this detailed review and feedback. It was a great pleasure working with you!

5.0 Valerie S. Oakmont, PA

5.0 Kate M. Pittsburgh, PA

We are first-time homeowners looking to check if a wall was load-bearing for a potential removal. I called several structural engineering firms and Firas was the only one to pick up when I called (the others never returned my calls). He was courteous and was able to schedule with us quickly. When he came to our house he was thorough and explained his process in great detail. We really felt like we could trust him and he did not try to push us or upsell us on anything. Highly recommend!

Response from Company:

Thank you Kate! It was a pleasure working with you! Enjoy your new home.

5.0 Earl H. Pittsburgh, PA

I inquired about a wall removal and structural assessment with HomeAdvisor on a Sunday night, and was responded to that same night and was able to schedule an appointment just as quickly. Firas was very thorough with his assessment and went above and beyond his scope of work and my own expectations. I would highly recommend Pittsburgh Design and Engineering Services!

Response from Company:

Thank you so much Earl for your feedback and recommendation! I am very happy that I was able to assist you.

5.0 Chris P. Harrison City, PA

Firas was very responsive and willing to work around my busy schedule. I hired a flooring company to install new floors for me and was told by their "best" guy that I need to add three adjustable supports in my basement. We wanted a second opinion. Firas came over and checked not only the area in question, but my entire basement and first floor. He saved my major damages to my home by making sure that I did not follow poor advice. All said and done, Pittsburgh Design & Engineering Services saved me time, money, and a lot of future heartache. This has been my first experience with a structural engineer and I did not know what to expect. I have to say that the price was very reasonable and worth every cent for the peace of mind. Please consider Pittsburgh Design & Engineering Services if you have any doubts about the structural well being of your home. You will not regret it.

Response from Company:

Thank you so much Chris for your feedback! I am very happy I was able to help.

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.
