Firas was a lifesaver for me when a misinformed home inspector erroneously flagged floor joists as incorrectly installed in a 2 year old Ryan Home. My seller employed Firas to evaluate the situation. Not only was he accommodating with his schedule, he was super helpful in explaining why the inspector was wrong and he was able to relieve any fears from the buyers of the home. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing engineering services.

Firas was very responsive and willing to work around my busy schedule. I hired a flooring company to install new floors for me and was told by their best guy that I need to add three adjustable supports in my basement. We wanted a second opinion. Firas came over and checked not only the area in question, but my entire basement and first floor. He saved my major damages to my home by making sure that I did not follow poor advice. All said and done, Pittsburgh Design & Engineering Services saved me time, money, and a lot of future heartache. This has been my first experience with a structural engineer and I did not know what to expect. I have to say that the price was very reasonable and worth every cent for the peace of mind. Please consider Pittsburgh Design & Engineering Services if you have any doubts about the structural well being of your home. You will not regret it.

We are first-time homeowners looking to check if a wall was load-bearing for a potential removal. I called several structural engineering firms and Firas was the only one to pick up when I called (the others never returned my calls). He was courteous and was able to schedule with us quickly. When he came to our house he was thorough and explained his process in great detail. We really felt like we could trust him and he did not try to push us or upsell us on anything. Highly recommend!

Repair a Concrete Foundation:

Pittsburgh Design and Engineering Services is hands-down THE company you need to use for any and all structural engineering needs. I placed a house under contract that had foundation issues and was both nervous and concerned about what the repairs might entail. Firas, the owner, responded to my inquiry within an hour and was very accommodating in scheduling the onsite visit. His knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail seriously cannot be beaten. He correctly identified and quantified the issues at hand--something two other contractors I had brought out failed to do. I am so happy I spent the extra money to have him come out, as it has made me much more comfortable in my upcoming purchase and I am now using his observations as points of leverage in my negotiations with the seller. I would highly recommend Pittsburgh Design and Engineering Services to anyone and everyone who is involved with real estate (both commercial and residential) and in need of the expertise of a structural engineer. Firas is one of the most down-to-earth, honest, and knowledgeable professionals I have come across in the greater Pittsburgh area and I look forward to doing business with this firm for years to come.
