Pick and choose how we can help.

All our structural services include engineering.

For the most part, we provide residential structural engineering design services* only when we are also going to be doing the physical construction. This reduces our liability and improves outcomes for customers who benefit from having a single point of accountability. We do provide engineering design services on a standalone basis, but only in special situations including when the project is located outside our immediate service area (and where it is impractical for us to manage the construction).

Our designs are grounded in practice and will save you money without sacrificing durability or aesthetics.

We can usually get an engineer out to your site, and have a complete, permit-ready package within a week.

*Our services include site inspection, load-bearing analysis, engineering, and documentation.

Why you should use us for engineering?

Residential structural work and wall removal are all we do. Our engineering solutions come from extensive field experience. We are guided not only by what will be safe and durable, which always comes first but also by what will be practical and inexpensive for the customer.

We are easy to work with. And, we’re punctual.


Enlarging a living space nearly always requires removing one or more walls, including those that are bearing loads. This can sometimes be a significant undertaking that requires engineering, project planning, and experienced execution.

If the wall is load bearing, you will need a documented engineered design that correctly anticipates and transfers load across new paths, a permit from the city, temporary supports, new structural members cut and fit perfectly, and the ability to adapt safely when (not if) you discover what had not been anticipated.

Once we start your job we will not leave until it’s finished. Most jobs take 2 to 3 days.

Is that a load bearing wall?

This is probably the most common question we get. While we can’t tell for sure without a site visit, we usually have a pretty good idea and can give you the benefit of our experience over the phone (no charge). Email us some pictures (wide angles are better, and we will need an outside shot of your home as well), and let us know when your home was built, where the wall is in the home, and what two rooms/spaces are on either side of it.


Bowing roofs or walls? Sagging floors? Walls or ceilings with large cracks getting worse over time? Posts in your basement decaying? These could be signs of structural damage that may need to be fixed as soon as possible.

Delaying structural repairs to your home just adds to the expense of the eventual repair. Meanwhile, structural damage eats into your equity and makes it tougher to sell or refinance your home.

Once we start your job we will not leave until it’s finished. Job durations vary by the number of trades and types of repair.

Types of structural home repair
