    5.0 Neal M. Howell, MI

    Very professional, with quick, clear report.

    5.0 Marybeth K. Royal Oak, MI

    Stop reading the reviews and just CALL STEVEN! After buying a 100+ year old home with sagging floors, I scoured the internet for reviews of a great engineer. Steven is so much more than that! He was able to analyze all of our structural issues AND design and create Architectural Drawings for a large dormer! He's not only a one-stop shop for any needs you may have for your renovation - he develops MULTIPLE SOLUTIONS for your unique situation. Specifically he was able to design a dormer and internal support which all tied together and essentially fixed two issues with one design! Then to make things even better, he was able to communicate directly with my contractor and offer him multiple ways to address each issue - allowing my contractor to pick the most cost effective route. Steven has a unique blend of the ability to see the big picture, design really creative solutions, and at the same time not 'over-engineer' a solution which some others tend to do! If we ever need anything structural or architectural again we will be calling Steven!

    5.0 Andrea W. Fenton, MI

    Steven was professional, on time and was able to help me (firs time home buyer with a 120 year old house) get to the root of our sagging floor problem. He has saved us so much money by giving us the cause AND repairs needed. I highly recommend you use Steve first to really know your home needs instead of big name foundation companies who might try to upsell your issues. With Steve you get licensed expertise that comes from his experience!

    5.0 Rachel B. Auburn Hills, MI

    5.0 Rachel B. Auburn Hills, MI

    5.0 Jeffrey S. Whitmore Lake, MI

    Very happy with the thorough examination conducted and the report he provided. I would recommend him and hire him again in the future.


    Super nice guy. Knew his stuff. Gave me a few options on my problem and worked out well.

    5.0 Phil B. Port Huron, MI

    He was available right away, showed up on time and sent his report in a timely manner. We were very happy with work.

    5.0 Linda L. Southfield, MI

    He was professional, detailed in his inspection, assessment and recommendations. He was extremely helpful in explaining the structure concerns and the likelyhood of the deterioration. While the written report is a few days away (as commited) there is absolute confidence that it will reflect the observed inspection, and discussed issues and recommendatons.

    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)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
