When do you need the services of Accredited Building Consultants, Inc.?
Do I need a Professional Engineer Or A Building Inspector?
Your first question is what are you trying to accomplish? If you need a visual building inspection then you donít need a Professional Engineer (PE). PEís are not trained in visual home inspections but that of their particular discipline, i.e. Structural, mechanical, civil etc.
Visual building inspections do not involve engineering analysis, even when performed by PE's. In fact, engineering is an entirely different type of investigation, which entails detailed scientific measurements, tests, calculations, and / or analysis. Such a technically exhaustive analysis involves considerable time and expense, and is only appropriate when visual evidence exists to indicate a problem that warrants further specialized investigation. There are no engineering degrees in building inspections.
If required, Accredited Building Consultants, Inc. has several engineering firms in all disciplines available for consultation if needed. Give us a call, or contact us to obtain further information about our services.
