“Bayer-Risse Engineering Gets It Done”

My family and I can’t thank you enough for all your efforts. Bayer-Risse Engineering took an undeveloped piece of property that most companies would have walked away from, and became the key component in making our dream of building a home become reality. From perc, through LOI to CO you and your team were always available to address any concerns we had. Your knowledge and assistance through this project is something we will never forget.

“Security and Comfort”

Theodore and Bill,
As you know, Lisa and I were so stressed during this entire septic ordeal. I must tell you that listening to Bill and also being able to talk his ear off — earned us a wealth of security and comfort during our family move.
We are so grateful to you both for taking such good care of 76 Britton Road.
Thanks again.

You have given us a clear understanding of the scope of work involved as well as the cost for each phase. Thank you again for getting us the information that we requested in a very helpful and efficient manner.

“Bayer-Risse Engineering, Inc. is the “go to” engineering firm that I rely on”

I always recommend that our clients have an engineering firm perform a septic system inspection. For me, Bayer-Risse Engineering, Inc. is the “go to” engineering firm that I rely on. Nothing is more frustrating than receiving a poorly written report that inadequately prepares our clients for the purchase of a home. Bayer-Risse Engineering’s reports are thorough and professional leaving no unanswered questions.

“You made a possibly overwhelming project as painless as possible!”

The approval from the Soil District came in last week, so I think we’re all done. Thanks for your help in this project – you folks made a possibly overwhelming project as painless as possible! Once again, thanks for your help!

“Highly Competent and Capable”

We are pleased to comment on the work of Bayer-Risse Engineering. Our firm has worked on many types of projects together, from Municipal to Residential. No matter what the size or complexity of the project, Steve and his staff have always been professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. I know that when I recommend Bayer-Risse to a potential client, they will be in highly competent and capable hands. No stone is left unturned.

Thanks very much, Ted. You and everyone else on your team who has worked with us have all done a fantastic job of ensuring we can still meet our closing date on 5/10. We have been very pleased with all of the engineering work you have provided.

Jonathan Correll



We trust you – in a world where we believe very few people are trustworthy (even our attorney, Matthew Raia of Martinsville) spoke highly of you/your company, upon hearing that you did the inspection for us.

I’d like to thank you, Ted and Steve for running with this and taking the extra effort to make sure we cut all of the time possible out of the equation. My only regret is that I did not use you when I bought.

“Your Diligence is Above and Beyond the Call”

In talking with my agents the other day about your service, I told them of that Princeton Township job that closed early because of your diligence that is “above and beyond the call”. Just wanted to thank you again and look forward to working with you on the next one.

My wife and I surely appreciate the successful effort made last Monday regarding the troubleshooting of our septic problem. In these days we find it rare to see prompt and knowledgeable assistance on just about anything. Thanks again for the visit.

“Quick response from someone with such expertise”

Thank you for helping us out with our sinkhole issue. I really appreciate how responsive you were in answering our questions and coming out to our house. Even though we’re not thrilled with having to fix the problem, it was a lot better getting such a quick answer from someone with such expertise.

“Successful Installation”

Hi Ted:
Thank you for a successful installation of my septic system. It was reassuring to have all my questions answered with such patience, especially by Bill Jupinka, that my fears were allayed and replaced with confidence knowing I’d be in good hands. For someone who had had no experience with such an undertaking, this was very important.
I’d like to also thank you for recommending Gulick Excavators for my septic installation. I found the team to be friendly and informative yet professional. From the onset, their communication was timely and I could count on Duane to address any questions or concerns I had. At the start of the project, he gave me a general timeline but during the excavation and installation, he kept me abreast of what was happening and what it entailed. I was surprised at how diligently they watched the weather as the work depended so much on ground conditions. Gulick’s professionalism extended to them working on a Saturday to complete my project, knowing that the two days prior to wrapping up the project called for rain.
I would highly recommend them and Bayer-Risse without hesitation.

Thank you so much for your generous gift. It is due to the generosity of individuals and businesses in the community that we can continue to pursue our goal of ending substandard housing in our area. With your help Habitat will continue to work in the community, providing a hand up–not a hand out–to struggling families in Warren County.

“Excellent Performance and Professionalism”

Dear Ted & Steve – You did it again! And both of us feel a strong need to congratulate you on your performance on our recently closed sale! We had only 35 days to the scheduled closing and needed an engineering firm who could:

  1. Do a complete diagnosis of a malfunctioning septic system.
  2. Do the subsequent percs and soil tests required and obtain usable test results
  3. Design a brand new septic bed.
  4. Get the new design approved by both the Township and the County Health Department.
  5. AND find an excavator who could complete the installation on time in spite of several rain delays .

All of which you guys were able to accomplish on time!

However, in spite of having accomplished all of the above within the allotted time frame, we still faced a situation where on the day before the scheduled closing the entire deal was about to blow up in our faces. It seemed that at 5:30 that night we thought there was no way the Pleasant View Manor closing would ever happen on time! We will never forget how at 6PM that night you sent that e-mail that satisfied the buyers’ mortgage company and we closed first thing in the morning as scheduled.

As usual, you rock

“Accessible, Knowledgeable and Reputable”

Steve, you asked me the other day to tell you why we recommend Bayer-Risse Engineering, Inc. It’s very simple – I know that the job is going to be done quickly and correctly the first time through. Your professionalism, accessibility, knowledge and reputation with the local health departments builds a level of comfort with all parties involved in a real estate transaction. In addition, we appreciate that you are always staying in contact and not letting up until the job is complete.

Stacey J. Gould

Esq. Attorney at Law,

“One word sums it up – Excellence!”

My experience with Bayer-Risse Engineering was great! They were prompt and professional from the initial consultation to the final result…a new septic system. One word sums up the quality, ability, expertise and attention that was given by the staff of this fine company, and that is “Excellence”. I highly recommend their services.

“You get it right the first time! I’ll always call Bayer-Risse”

Ted & Steve; Just to let you know again, it’s great working with you on all of the different kinds of projects that we’ve done. You understand the big picture; you communicate well; you’re on time; you get it right the first time and you always make me look good.

For anyone who asks, “I’ll always call Bayer-Risse. Navigating through today’s technical and environmental regulations is complicated. They are true engineers and they deliver – every time.

“We don’t believe we could have hired a better team”

Well, the project is done! You have to experience a project like this to understand what it is all about. Our lack of knowledge led to some weak attempts on our part to ask questions that would provide some enlightenment about the work. But nothing short of seeing it unfold could erase our anxiety.

The two best decisions we made were hiring Bayer-Risse Engineering and Martin Excavating. Pardon us for getting excited about a few things that we now realize were well under control. Thank you for leading us through this event. We also appreciate Bill’s effort on site. We took a lot of pictures. Wish we could have had them before the work. It would have helped us to better anticipate the size and scope of the project.

We appreciate your work on our behalf. We lucked out. We don’t believe we could have had a better team than Bayer-Risse Engineering and Martin Excavating!

“We were a bit daunted, but our realtor told us we’d be glad we contracted with you and he was right!”

I am writing to thank you for your dedicated help as we have worked to address our major septic-field problems at the home we’ve just sold. While we were a bit daunted by the cost of engineering-consulting services, our realtor told us we’d be glad we contracted with you, and he was right.

Your supervision of the test on the old system and careful work to find the best approvable perc for the new system not only reassured our prospective buyers, but also resulted in fairly prompt certification by the Township. Your careful preparation of the bid for the actual dig meant that we received bids that were informed, complete and easily comparable.

Your willingness to sit with us and the prospective buyers, reassuring them, helped ensure that our closing occurred on schedule, even though adverse weather prevented our completing the septic replacement before the sale.

Your staying in touch as we await a hard freeze, and your assurance that you will be overseeing the project to its completion has meant that we closed with a “minimum” escrow investment. Both we and our buyers appreciate your commitment to seeing that the job is completed to their-and the authorities’-satisfaction.”
