To start, a Design Everest associate schedules a consultation with you to fully understand your needs.
Once we understand your needs, we are quick to schedule the on-site visit by an experienced engineer at the agreed time.
The engineer's evaluation is delivered to you in a written report or verbally, as per your requirement.
On-Site Structural Evaluation Services
Whether you are buying a new home and want an evaluation before you make the big purchase, or you are concerned about cracks, sloping, settlement or any other structural issues in your existing home, our experienced engineers can help you with a professional on-site structural evaluation. As an addition, they are also able to evaluate the feasibility of any upcoming projects you may have planned.
The evaluation can help you with various parts of your home, such as foundation, framing, shear walls, load-bearing walls, and building envelope. Through careful evaluation of the building, the engineer will report on structural issues.
In addition to the evaluation, we can also support homeowners with structural engineering plans and calculations to bring their homes up to city building codes for any planned repairs and remodeling.

Design Everest was amazing to work with. I had called a few other structural engineers and they all said they were 6-8 weeks out in terms of availability. Design Everest came out the next day and completed a structural inspection in a very professional manner. They also followed up multiple times to make sure I was satisfied with their work and to see if I understood everything. This was the second time I've used them and I've now told my friends about them. Highly recommend! Jessica and Marcus were great to work with.

I reached out to Design Everest while looking for a residential structural engineering inspection in what happened to be a very short time window. Although I did not end up needing the inspection in the end, the agent who worked with me (Brittany) displayed the utmost professionalism and responsiveness in communicating between me and the potential inspector on the requirements of my request and timing, including communication after business hours to get everything lined up. This interaction gave me confidence that Design Everest is a well-run organization. As a result, I would definitely look to Design Everest for a structural engineering inspection project in the future.

I would like to thank Design Everest and Dan Naum on a job well done. I called Design Everest to inspect my townhouse because I was having problems with the HOA. When Dan arrived to my residence, the first thing he did was ask what was my issues and what I wanted from him. I explained my situation and Dan took it from there. He did a thorough job and explained what his findings were. Once again great job from Design Everest and especially Dan Naum.

We have put in a contingent offer for a house that has some issues, including a crack in the foundation, and I needed a structural report timely done. Design Everest has exceeded my expectations and delivered in a few days. I cannot thank them enough for the great quality of the service! The engineer that came onsite was extremely knowledgeable and experienced; I enjoyed learning from the expert what are things that the house needs.
