    Dakini Engineering performed a foundation repair and built out a laundry room for me. I found their work product to be of the highest quality. They have been very responsive to any questions I had and even came in when I sold my house to take care of a couple of small items outside the scope of the original job.

    Guy had an older elegant Mission Hills home that had several foundation repairs through the years, but the results of the multiple repairs was cumbersome and didn't utilize the 10 foot high crawl space area very well. We moved the furnace system, repaired the foundation professionally, and re-designed the wood girder and isolated pier footing system to create a usable room and laundry room area in the crawl space. We handled the job from design phase/permitting to final completion of the project. Thank you Guy for the nice review. Dana

    My house is almost 100 years old and was in need of new foundation support. Dana had to deal with a generous amount of deteriorated conditions and aterations to the support structures. Dana was a life saver, handling every process of the project, from permits to the final inspections. I was never worried that the project was not going to be done right, on time, and on budget. I,m a devoted admirer of Dana's abilities and would recommend him to anyone.

    Dakini Engineering provided excellent service from design through final walk-through. Their crew is disciplined and knowledgeable and they left the construction site clean and in order every day. As problems came up (and they always do) they were fair in their pricing and their solutions. We recommend them to all our friends.

    I was not sure who to call about my problem. Dana listened to my problem over the phone and patiently instructed me on how to take care of it without incurring the expense of a service call. I could tell that this business represented a high level of competence and integrity. Although I did not need to have them come out, I would surely use it if I ever needed it.

    Integrity, Trustworthy, Creativity in Engineering

    Dakini Engineering performed miracles on our hillside La Mesa home. Historically our lower level was prone to seepage and even flooding. Dakini Engineering excavated the front of our house with surgical precision. Waterproofing and drainage measures eliminated all water seepage problems; even during the wettest year on record! Dakini Engineering provided creative and insightful consultation that not only resulted in a cost-effective means of eliminating a long standing problem; but enhanced utility and property value as well. Through skillful efforts our front and side yards were transformed from unusable space into aesthetically attractive and functional patio and recreational spaces. In solving one problem, two areas of our yard were turned into functional and decorative spaces that provided considerable added value to our property. All work was completed in a timely and professional manner; and at a significantly lower cost than other competitors' bids. My wife and I were more than pleased with the work performed by Dakini Engineering and look forward to using them again for subsequent home improvement projects. We recommend Dakini Engineering as having incredibly high integrity, trustworthiness and creativity in engineering and construction.

    Am a very busy Realtor. Have known and worked with Dana for 2 decades, never been unreliable, never disappointed and works wonders with clients! Dana is not only the best technical resource from engineering to landscape to general contracting, but his "bedside manner" with clients creates instant trust and acceptance. Always keeps his word.

    Very high quality remodel contractor

    We have used Dakini twice, once in 2000 for hillside foundation work and again for our home remodel in 2004. Work quality was top notch both times. The home remodel project scope included expanding our current house in front and back and adding a new second story. Dakini workmen were prompt and professional at all times. Work was completed in a timely manner even when design changes from us were requested. Dakini was able to incorporate several custom details into our remodel due to the many years of experience of many of the workmen. We would not hesitate to use Dakini in the future for all of our building projects. Professional work done on budget and on schedule both times.
