Foundation Repair Engineer

When it’s time to get your future home or business inspected, you’ll definitely want to work with someone who has a lot of hands-on experience with buildings. Aside from conducting thousands of successful inspections, Mark has been a foundation repair engineer for 15 years.

Why Does this Matter?

The foundation is one of the most critical aspects of every building. If there’s a leak, a break, or any other issues, it can severely impact the rest of the home. With Mark’s experience, he’s able to offer something most other home inspectors can’t: a skilled, first-hand foundation assessment.

Mark is a Student of Architecture who has a particular fondness for the Chicagoland area’s many long-standing, unique structures. He also has a genuine love for every aspect of construction, which gives him a comprehensive understanding of the thousands of parts that must go together properly to make a house work smoothly.

Mark Behind the Scenes

During his downtime, Mark loves spending time with his family, reading, and dedicating himself to health and fitness.
