    5.0 Marti W. Oakland, CA

    Mr. Paul showed up exactly on time, provided an inspection and assessment of my home project, was professional and knowledgeable, and answered all of my questions. He provided outstanding customer service, and I would highly recommend him. Excellent! M. Wolfe Oakland, CA .

    3.0 Greg S. Hayward, CA

    Was ok, he did not seem to get all the way underneath our house to check structure. He said he could tell from what he saw just by opening the crawl space.

    5.0 Mani M. Walnut Creek, CA

    Knowledgeable. Super friendly. Quick assessment.

    5.0 Mike H. Benicia, CA

    Excellent inspection. Mr. Paul was very knowledgeable and recommended how to fix all my problems. Thank you

    5.0 John R. Hercules, CA

    They came in and clearly gave me an evolution of my situation. They advised I would be okay, and if I wanted I could do the minor self repair myself to the foundation and what materials to use. I am going to hire them to knock down a load bearing wall. Those guys are awesome.

    5.0 Cliff B. Moraga, CA

    My meeting with Mr.Paul was very educational. He provided use with a wealth of information about our structure and planned project. I highly recommend this service.

    4.0 San Francisco, CA

    Hired this company to inspect retrofit work and verify that our house was in compliance with the earthquake standards required by our earthquake insurance in order to receive a discount. We passed the inspection and all was well. I believe that you should pay for the expertise and education behind it and did not feel that we were overcharged. I was a little irritated however that Mr. Paul approached me with a defensive attitude about what he did and what he charged that turned my asking any questions about his services into an argumentative dialogue. I can imagine that his stance comes from a number of unpleasant encounters over the years with people who don't realize that the expertise and the license he brings to his work is what you are paying for, not just the time he has to spend on your project, but he needs to develop an elevator talk for the uninitiated that doesn't end up making his client feel guilty for asking about how he charges.

    5.0 Loreto S. Vallejo, CA

    Hired Mr.Paul for a Structural Engineer report under a very tight deadline and he went above and beyond to accommodate my clients time frame needs for a real estate transaction. It was a pleasure working with him and I will definitely call him in the future for my clients that are in need of his services.

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
