<<I have a claim in with the home owners warranty company, so if the engineer tells me it's fine, that's OK, and if I need piers, that's OK too. But, how do I know that the engineer I hire knows what he is doing? do you have a rec for the Denver Colorado area?

Unfortunately, or fortunately for me, not many engineers work in this business. A lot of engineers look down their noses at work in the residential area (good, less competition), and of the few of us that do work in residential stuff, even fewer do work for individual homeowners.

Is this shortage of engineers a factor in the poor foundations that get built? And what percentage of foundations for new homes are inadequately designed and built, in your experience?

How reliable are home inspectors in identifying serious foundation problems in your experience?
