Why Do I Need A Licensed Professional Engineer For a Foundation Inspection?
Unfortunately, some foundation repair companies in Dallas Fort Worth get around the permit requirements by making an “arrangement” with an engineer, which does not bode well for the property owner. To avoid multiple bids, and conflicting opinions for the best foundation solution, contact TEC at the first sign of concern.
We can give you peace of mind in knowing that work performed (or not performed) on your home is justified and correct, which will in turn help you save money in the long run.

Foundation Inspections Structural Evaluation Engineering Report
Easy 3-Step Structural Evaluation Process
Your custom report will be based on a level “B” investigation as described by the Texas Board of Professional Engineers and the American Society of Civil Engineers, Texas Section. Through this process, our goal is to determine if your home is performing within structural guidelines. If not, our focus is to identify if foundation work is necessary, or if simply addressing the underlying cause(s) is enough to mitigate movements and prevent foundation problems and the need for costly foundation repairs. We will provide you the necessary recommendations to ensure that the most important part of your home, THE FOUNDATION, is performing at its best.
Cost Of Structural Evaluation
The price for an engineering evaluation depends primarily on the foundation type (pier and beam or slab on grade) and the interior square footage.
