STORM WATER MANAGEMENT & DESIGN

Storm water is a natural resource which effects all of our communities and can be more than inconvenient.

Our ability to develop effective storm water solutions from those two responses is the basis of our storm water design and management approach. At VonArx Engineering, we leverage our expertise and the insight gained from our personal relationships with our clients to develop effective solutions. Water is a natural resource that is essential to our communities and our lives. We understand the importance of the balance storm water management has between our natural and built environments.

STRUCTURAL INSPECTIONS

Our homes are valued spaces where we invest our resources to live our lives and form our communities. Purchasing a home is a large expense that should be approached carefully and completed with thorough diligence. Purchasing a home involves many people beyond just the buyer and seller. It usually includes at least one realtor, the lender, and other professionals to help the buyer perform their due diligence and gain confidence that they are making sound decisions. In addition to appraisers, home inspectors, and surveyors, an engineer is often needed to assess the structural condition of the residence or certify that it is on a permanent foundation. We provide structural assessments for foundations, retaining walls and structures and permanent foundation certifications for manufactured housing. Our engineers have 25 years of experience with residential foundation and structures.

The practice of structural engineering insures that our property is safely constructed. VonArx Engineering performs structural assessments of the condition of residential real estate providing needed advice for both buyers and sellers relative to the condition of their home. We typically perform a visual inspection of the condition of the residence and provide an assessment report with recommendations. Our reports are instrumental in the decision-making process and facilitate the smooth transaction of real estate. Giving buyers peace-of-mind that their new home is sound and a safe space for their family and sellers confidence that to pursue their new home.

We also perform certifications for manufactured home foundations relative to FHA/VA and other government loan programs. We provide this essential service to lenders, realtors and consumers so that they can meet the requirements of their loan program. We perform a site inspection of each property and evaluate the conditions of the foundation to insure that it is in compliance with HUD guidelines. If the property meets the requirements then we prepare a report containing the necessary data and certifications to facilitate the closing of your loan. If not, we immediately provide a deficiency letter outlining the necessary repairs for the property to become compliant. We even suggest contractors that can perform the work. Once the repairs are made we perform another inspection and issue the report.
