Rates and Fees:

Our rates and fees vary by project and complexity. We don't offer or provide FREE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING ASSESSMENTS or FREE STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING SERVICES. Most of  our fees are lump sum fee so that you don't feel that we are "nickel and diming" you.

You may be wondering or have experienced that the fee for similar services (for instance, structural engineer foundation assessments for foundation repair) vary between engineering companies. Our fees are typically on the mid-range when compared to other professional engineers. We don't base our fee on market trends or on what other engineers are charging.

For a relatively small nominal fee, a practicing and trained structural engineer (that continues and understands  the design of large and small buildings) visits with you to evaluate your building. You will notice from our reviews that our engineers are extremely sensitive to your concerns and inquiries. We encourage you to ask questions, inquire, research, learn and take advantage of the insight that our engineers bring to you.

We enjoy practicing structural engineering as much as we enjoy sharing our understanding of it with you.


To expedite your project, we manage clearing invoices fairly easy. You have the option to either pay via credit card or check. We prefer that no projects be paid in cash. For credit card projects, you will receive an invoice from our credit card service provider, PayPal. Just follow the simple instructions and the invoice is cleared. Please feel assured that we do not see or keep your credit card information. If you choose to pay with a check, please make the check payable to A-1 Engineering, LLC and provide it to the structural engineer during the visit. If you have a promotional discount or coupon, please tell our project coordinators to adjust your invoice. Also, the electronic invoice that is emailed to you will have a project number with the following format: 15-XXX-X. That is your project number so please reference it when you call our office, send emails or talk with the structural engineers.

Thank you again for choosing our Structural Engineers to visit with you.
