I'm working on a large project in the Pittsburgh area. The building was previously condemned despite being in good condition. In order to remove the condemnation, the city wanted a report from an engineer to verify that it was safe to occupy. Bob came to the site when he said he would and took his time walking throughout the entire structure. He was able to offer insight on how the building was constructed and advice on things we could do to reduce our construction and maintenance costs (which was WAY outside of the scope of work I was paying for). I was extremely pleased with his work. Many engineers & architects come across as dry and dare I say arrogant. Bob was easy going and polite. A breathe of fresh air in that line of work. I would definitely use Bob again and would recommend him to friends or family.
I contact Mr. Mason after I was having some issues with glass block being installed in my house as the installer thought my red brick wall was bowed and a crack in the foundation. Mr. Mason was able to make an appointment the same week and he showed up actually on time (something most people do not). He was very professional and answered all of my questions and concerns. He took numerous picture and explained everything in great detail. I purchased the detailed written report as I would recommend that to anyone seeking out his services as I’m not an engineer and explaining to contractors and others what he was talking about I’m sure I would of misspoke. Within 48 hours I received a 4-page report outlining everything I needed to have fixed before moving forward with any more home improvement projects. The peace of mind Mr. Mason provides and his recommendations are well worth the money! Can’t thank him enough!
