Structural/Soils Engineers

Ray, I know you use them to get your mix.

I've used them for soils --- but mainly for structural

I did once when i hit some really bad dirt

nobody here really utilizes them (engineers) on residential.

I would like to ... if nothing else, another quality/selling point. And I rest easier.

Re: Structural/Soils Engineers

I'd call em more like CAD operators

yeah, odd thing - you need the seal for commercial - just not residential

in fact, when I first needed an engineer .... I couldn't find one to save my life. Finally found one guy and I didn't trust his advice

(he called for 16" OC throughout entire shell)

(I use 10" OC on depths up to 3' and then 5" OC throughout the rest, from 4' down to 8 or however deep)

waterfalls get 3" OC
