Alex Rood or Mike Hicks over at Fulcrum Structural Engineering.

Their office is in San Francisco but do a fair amount of work down your way. They are very thorough and their prices are fair. (415) 543-0161 x21

Hello Jamie,
I have been a broker working in the East Foothills for over 20 years and I have used many Structural Engineers. My favorite is Walt Larrabee. He'snot the cheapest but he is the best. His number is 408.364.9000 I would talk to him before making a choice.
Good Luck.

You might want to tru taking a look at http://www.linkedin.com

It's a website for professionals that offer services that includes recommendationa and comments about their quality of workmanship.

It might be worth a look.

Jamie -

I second Alan Huntzinger. 650-327-3900

If your concerns are specific to floor joist etc the pest inspector can give you a lot of information about what needs/should be replaced. If you believe that the walls or foundation have been placed at risk, a foundation expert may help.

Here are names of different foundation professionals I have used in addition to Alan.
Larabee & Associates - 364-9000
Edwards Construction - 985-0731
Huck's Construction - 298-2374

Everyone in the real estate biz have opinions about these folks. Make sure you ask your agent for their recommendation.

If you are looking for a general contractor that can discuss re-framing/walls etc., I would talk to Sean Adamson
General Contractor - 978-7594

Good luck.
