Maintaining and securing the value and integrity of your home or property can be a difficult challenge. Often one may find themselves dealing with ambiguity regarding whom to trust and what needs to be done. The seasoned, experienced professional engineers and registered architects at Criterium-Tauscher Cronacher have worked dissolve these doubts since 1957 when Arthur Tauscher, P.E., a licensed engineer in New York founded it.
Tauscher pioneered the building inspection industry and the specialized approach to inspections to protect buyers who were often unaware of the true condition and liabilities of the property they owned or were buying. Criterium-Tauscher Cronacher is a part of the Criterium Engineers network of over 60 affiliated offices nationwide begun 50 years ago. The team specializes in Mechanical, Structural, Electrical and Civil Engineering for residential and commercial dwellings. The range of services offered include property condition reports, environmental site assessments, reserve studies, construction loan monitoring, Assessment of Condition, Feasibility Studies, Problem Solving an Diagnostics, Maintenance Planning, Dispute Resolution, Environmental Assessments, Progress Payment Inspections, Americans With Disabilities Act Audits, New Construction Inspection, Environmental Inspection, Forensic Services, Reserve Studies, LEED Certified Professionals and Energy and Sustainability.
Property owners stand to benefit from knowing what makes professionals engineers so efficient. While a Professional Engineer must make a career commitment to serving the public under oath a city or state licensed inspector does not. This pledge includes an ethical obligation to serve only the client, professionally and confidentially which likely hits home to anyone who has ever been told ‘most’ of the facts by an over ambitious sales associate in order to get the sale.
Professional engineers complete four years in engineering, four years minimum field training, and a 16 hour state exam. This compares tremendously favorable to a regular home inspector, who only goes through a 40 hour class and 100 hours of field training. Criterium Tauscher Cronacher Engineers provide a standard property inspection held by the standards of the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers which is designed to identify significant deficiencies or repairs needed in the major systems of a home or dwelling. These crucial areas include structural foundation, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roofs, and exterior.
Today, with new COO Richard Koller at the helm, this all-inclusive approach culminates into a detailed understanding of engineering, safety and building integrity, ensuring the long term value stays in focus. Criterium-Tauscher Cronacher has a reputation garnered by inspecting over 200,000 structures and endeavors to educate homeowners, commercial property owners and Condo and Co-op Associations about maintaining the long term value of their property.
