Renovations can require that a structural engineer check the earthquake and wind resisting frames and walls to ensure code compliance and occupant safety. Also, many buildings in San Francisco are now required to retrofit soft story construction. Give us a call.
"I was remodeling my living room and kitchen and needed to remove a bearing wall. Luke Ensberg came to my house, asked me what I wanted to do, and listened carefully. The City required a very involved permit approval process, but Luke provided thorough and accurate structural plans, and got the bearing wall removal approved by the City. He was courteous and responsive, willing to meet at my place in evenings and on weekends to get the permit approved. I did the remodel construction work myself, so I know the quality of Luke's services from the perspective of a builder and homeowner. I enthusiastically recommend calling him if you want to modify the structure of your home."
