We were happy with the quick response to our request to have someone come out to inspect some cracks in the garage flooring before closing on a townhome. We were given plenty of time to ask all questions and received a complete report, including photos, promptly afterwards. Very satisfied.

I just appreciate a niche firm that focuses on ordinary house evaluations. So many engineering firms tout their glamour projects and residential consultations rank pretty low on their lists.

I've used Bob Giles several more time since this original Job a few years ago to figure out how to support a heavy fish tank. Since then I've gotten his advice any time I put something heavy and potentially damaging into my house, from a heavy Safe to a punching bag installed in the garage. Each time he does a thorough look at the structure and sends back a report that includes several different options and what deflection would be. Very nice guy!

Review by in Apex, NC
for a little over $300 we found out that we did not need to pay the $4000 to lift our house that had been quoted to us because of a crack in the foundation. Very worth it!

They have done two certifications and the required tests for floor load level and an insulation restest and both times were punctual, pleasant to work with, knowledgeable and kept me informed and explained things i did not understand. They were helpful all through the process and provided the results on a timely basis and resonable cost.

Friendly, thorough, practical, and very accommodating. Bob provided a detailed frank assessment of what was needed, coupled with plans which took our personal needs into consideration. I would definitely hire him again for any structural work I need.

Bob Giles did a great job performing the engineering for the screen porch addition to my house. He did the work in a very timely manner and discussed several options for various aspects of the concrete, masonry, and wood framing work. Bob is very knowledgable, personable, and easy to work with. His fee was very reasonable. I would definately recommend him to a friend.

Worst experience ever work was not professional, i'm taking Walter Toet to court, he did not stick to the contract and did not refund our money when the job was done incorrectly. Do not hire this company to do your work, it will be a waste of time and money
Response by Criterium-Giles Engineers, Inc.: William K. has not contacted our office with this complaint.
