When should you contact A Los Angeles structural engineer?

Adding more space or altering your home’s design.

Are you planning on adding a room, studio, garage, or a glass-enclosed pool in your Los Angeles home? Our structural engineer can accurately assess which walls carry the weight of the home’s structure and how the planned renovations would affect the structural integrity of a home.

Buying or selling home

Are you are buying or selling your home in Los Angeles with structural problems that need extensive repair? Contact our structural engineer to asses the situation. Contact us to save you money in situations that aren’t nearly as severe as they are initially made out to be.

Structural damage

Have noticed structural damage? Signs of structural damage might include cracks in foundation walls, bowing walls, uneven floors, cracks around windows, doors that stick or standing water in your basement after a hard rain. Contact our structural engineer in order to assess the severity and reason of the issue, as well as recommend solutions.

Water, fire, wind or termite damage

Wind, fire, termite, water or flood damage can threaten the integrity of a home or other structure. Through forensic investigation, our structural engineer will asses whether or not an issue existed prior to an event for a claims adjuster.

Complicated structures or projects involving older homes (constructed before 1970) may also require early input from a structural engineer. Many times homes constructed before 1960s-70s were built without prescriptive building methods. Today, state and local building codes exist to ensure contractors and home builders follow a set of predetermined guidelines for building a home. A licensed, structural engineer is the best professional to assess the feasibility of any major home renovation project. A site visit can be conducted to evaluate potential, structural issues.

  • Called about an issue with roofing and he said they aren't able to book an appointment for my needs in my area, but took the time to ask a few questions about the situation and gave out a couple pieces of helpful information even though he knew he wouldn't be booking a job. Thank you!

  • As a professional Realtor, I highly recommend using Ramin. He was extremely knowledgeable, and honest which is hard to find nowadays. He confirmed that there were no structural issues with the attic ceiling beams. This ultimately put my Buyer at ease and we were able to close on his townhome in Malibu. Thank you Ramin. I look forward to working with you in the near future.
