(Customers who do not have an Engineer yet, can send their architectural Drawings in order for us to obtain a free analysis from an Engineer for quoting purposes. The quote will include Engineering fees as well as a minimum of two Site Visits by him. Quoting lead time will depend on the Engineer’s response time).
  2. Once all the necessary information has been obtained, we will provide you with a quote that will be valid for 7 days.
