Professional Engineering Services for Home Buyers
Buying an existing home usually requires an inspection by a licensed real estate inspector. Often times there will be signs of foundation movement or distress warranting a follow up inspection by a Professional Engineer. Our foundation evaluation services consists of a comprehensive foundation evaluation to determine the degree of movement, causes, and the most cost effective means to remedy such problems. This evaluation is considered a “Level B Investigation” by the ASCE Texas Section’s Guidelines for the Evaluation and Repair of Residential Foundations.
Our fee for a Level B investigation report start at $475 in most areas local to Dallas Ft. Worth. Additional costs are based on factors such as: the geographic location of the home site; Engineer availability; and other miscellaneous factors. General turn-around times are 5 to 7 days from when the site investigation is performed. We also have a rush service available for those needing an inspection and report expedited as quickly as possible for an additional fee of $175.
