Are you looking for a building engineer? RenoQuotes.com is here to help! Fill out the form hereabove to be referred to 3 certified engineers that will be glad to work on your construction or renovation project.

What construction and renovation projects can be completed by engineers?

Engineers have an expertise for anything that is related to a building’s structure. Their role consists in analyzing the situation they are dealing with, evaluating the project’s feasibility, doing the calculations and presenting the plans and the estimate for the project. Afterwards, they can monitor the work as it is being completed and until the project is completed. At the end, a certificate of conformity may be delivered to guaranty the quality of the executed works. As a matter of fact, engineers have the mandate to make sure that the renovations are completed whilst adhering to current regulations.

Here are a few examples of projects on which the expertise of building engineers may be recommended, even necessary:

- Evaluating the condition of a building’s structure;

- Modifying the building’s structure;

Identifying and/or removing load bearing walls;

Preparing a roof to install a green roof;

- Evaluating whether a building’s structure needs to be reinforced;

- For underpinning projects;

- For projects that involve moving or lifting a house;

- The exterior parts of a multiplex (e.g.: balconies).

Engineers are called to intervene on projects in all fields, whether it be for residential, commercial, industrial or institutional jobs. Although they are often associated with large-scale projects, their skills and knowledge can be useful on smaller projects that touch on certain key parts of a building.

Why hire an engineer for your renovation project?

Hiring a building engineer to create plans and to take on the completion of certain projects is a guarantee of quality. As structural specialists, they must make sure that the decisions they apply are the best solutions for the problem they are trying to solve. They are able to adapt to all types of buildings, from old structures to new constructions.

Materials and construction methods hold no secrets for them, which makes it so that they are able to evaluate the different options for structural support, as well as the work that needs to be done. This means that the work that is done will have better long-term results.

Engineers also know how to avoid certain problems that could occur following miscalculations, such as foundation or structural problems.

In some cases, it is mandatory to have plans completed by an engineer to get a permit from your municipal administration. For example, it is often the case when the work exceeds $100 000 (foundation work, framework, electrical or mechanical systems). Check with your local authorities to know if such is the case with regards to the work you are planning to complete.

What is the difference between an architect and an engineer?

In a nutshell, the architect takes care of designing and creating the aesthetical aspect of the building, whereas the engineer focuses on technical problems. The architect’s expertise lies in the way they organize the layouts. They play with lines and with the way things are set up. The engineer’s role is more focused on evaluating how the building will hold up. They work more on the building’s inner workings. Both trades collaborate on a large number of projects.

What a productive and pleasant experience. The entire process worked like clockwork. We got responses from contractors who clearly understood their craft and were consequently able to make the best choice for our particular needs.

Very efficient to find local contractors within a day. Extremely quick, and the contractors usually contact you. You only need to fill out one form instead of contacting multiple contractors. They offered us a wide range of contractors, at varying prices and experience levels. They were also able to find us contractors who had smaller businesses - they were much more affordable than the competition, but we wouldn't have found them otherwise because a lot did not have websites.

I stumbled on Renoquotes while searching for a local painter. I found their website and was pleasantly surprised by the service. It’s like a search engine for local contractors. You enter the details of your project and your location and they will put you in touch with three or more local contractors. You get estimates from those and then decide what to do next. It worked very well. I would recommend them.

We needed a window seat made for our bow window in the playroom. We dealt with Hassan from J and H renos. We had started the job with someone else, but they were unable to complete the job due to illness. Hassan came in and priced the job and worked with what we had. He did an amazing job and his workmanship was impeccable. I would highly recommend this company for any renovations.
