"I am a custom builder of single family residence homes in the Chicago
suburbs who is pleased to say that my experience with Cardinal Structural
Design, Inc. was outstanding. The charges were reasonable and the work was
detailed and understandable.
Initially I found myself faced with a very complicated situation resulting
from an inadequate design by the original architect for a 10,000 square foot
home with a very large, complex flat roof. Because the problems were not
apparent until after most of the roof had been completed, the task of
achieving adequate structural details was much more challenging than
starting from the beginning. We decided a complete structural review of the
home and blueprint was required before deciding how to address the many
areas of concern. One of the primary worries given the serious nature of
some of the deficiencies was overly conservative solutions that would result
in an unnecessarily high repair bill. Matt Mazza was sensitive to this and
proved to be very realistic and totally professional in his approach. He
was willing to consider alternate solutions to help control the cost when
the first or second idea seemed quite difficult or expensive.
The overall project required numerous site visits and meetings with changes
totaling well over $20,000. Unfortunately, this turned out to be an
extensive job. I think Matt would agree that some of the fixes were a
"first." Fortunately, the end product is a sound home for my customer who
is satisfied knowing he will not experience any problems in the future.
I would not hesitate to use Cardinal Structural Design, Inc. again. If you
need additional information, please feel free to contact me."
