Building or Renovating This Spring? We Can Help!

Over the winter, people spend most of their time indoors staying out of the frigid and sometimes snowy weather. During that time trapped inside, lists of home improvement ideas get written down and dreamed up. Some are extravagant bucket list items and some can be done in a weekend. However, if you don’t have the DIY skills, or the time, let the trusted professionals at Yingst Engineers help you cross off some items on your to do list.

Deck Goals

According to, “Backyard decks have replaced patios and front porches as the social centers of suburbia in the summer.”

Building or Renovating This Spring? We Can Help!

And they aren’t wrong. You can do anything and everything on your deck. From grilling burgers and steaks to soaking up some sun, a deck adds living space to your home. By having a quality deck, you increase the value of your home, create an enjoyable atmosphere and it’s a great investment to your property.

From a single traditional wood deck to a two-level composite deck, if you want to expand your outdoor living, Yingst Engineers can take the time to utilize state-of-the-art BIM (Building Information Modeling) design software to allow you to experience your dreams come to life in 3-D before construction even begins.

Garage Dreams

Did you park outside in the winter because you do not have a garage, or your garage is too small for your vehicle?

If you’re considering adding or enlarging a garage, we can help you understand the regulations and provide a design that complies when possible. Besides increasing your home value, you can protect your car, and store lawn equipment and tools by including them in the supersized storage shed.

And if you are adding or updating your garage, it may be feasible to add a guest bedroom or storage economically.

All of our structural and mechanical (HVAC, plumbing, electric) engineering, as well as site design (storm water management, erosion and sedimentation control) is performed in-house, so the timeline from designs to finished building has a quick turnaround time.

Addition Expectations

If you are going to expand your home, it should be done right by people that value the work that they do.

Your home is your biggest single investment, so by adding an addition, you can add extra bedrooms or bathrooms that will increase your home value but also allow you to live in your home longer without the stress of feeling the need to move into a new home. There are several different ways you can expand your square footage. You can expand up by adding above an established room or you can expand out into new territories.

No matter how large or small the project is, if you can dream it, the design team, engineers and architects at Yingst Engineers can make it happen. From a complex two-story addition to a simple deck design or an elegant new home, we will customize our services to meet your needs.

Our staff has the experience and expertise to help you create a relaxing and enjoyable place that you can call “home.” Contact our office today to speak to one of our design professionals.
