"New Deck to Replace my Old Deck" . I bought an older house that had deck in very poor condition sinking in some places due to bad footings, rotting joist, etc. I knew when I bought the house that I would building a new deck. I was in a situation where I was going to build a new deck and change the original layout. This deck was 15 feet off the ground and built over a day-light basement. The scope and size of my project required a city permit and approval. I hired Ogren Engineering to help with a structural design for a new cedar deck for my home. I worked directly with Scott Ogren, who took the time to explain some of the key structure aspects for the project I envisioned. Scott provided insight for the footings, materials, positioning, framing, drainage considerations, seismic requirements, etc. I walked away from the first visit with Scott feeling confident about the direction of my deck project. When Scott finished the engineering specs for the deck, his work was on time, The City approved the engineering plans, there were no surprises (just what I wanted). It is always great to work with a professional, who understood my needs. I had a excellent experience working with Scott Ogren. I would use Scott's services again and have recommended his services to others. Im happy to give him a positive review here. DIY HomeownerOct 19, 2011
