TESTIMONIAL

“I am a professional contractor and I have used Jacob Kachuba of Tignum on numerous projects of all different sizes, including renovating my own home. He is always professional, cost efficient and most importantly reliable. When I encounter structural issues I know that Jacob will have a solution and provide me with the drawings and guidance to produce a perfect final product. I also rely on Jacob to obtain building permits from the city, which can be an overwhelming and complicated process. This is a valuable and time saving service which frees me up to focus on what I do best, building homes. I would recommend him for any project big or small.” — Matt

ENGINEERING NOTES

If you are contemplating the removal of a wall or other elements in your house, it is crucial to have a structural engineer involved. Load bearing wall removals are inherently risky projects that require skill and careful planning. It is not uncommon for main load bearing walls to be resisting 25% to 30% of the weight of your home. Hiring a structural engineer for design and an experienced contractor for construction can minimize the risk of something going wrong.
