CKS Structures specifically tailors its services to give the buyer/owner the assurance that their concerns are alleviated in a timely, cost-effective manner.  In most cases, the services will entail a site visit to document the structural concern, an on-site discussion with the owner/buyer and a follow-up report and repair details affixed with a Professional Engineer’s seal in the state where the property is located – providing a legal document of the repairs for use by the owner.
