WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
I have worked with D 7 Consulting and Joe Daniels for over 8 years and consider D 7 as one of the premiere Waterproofing and Roofing Consultants in the LA area. Joe Daniels and his team of Consultants provide thorough and precise waterproofing/roofing solutions to even the most difficult conditions, at times utilizing NEOGARD Construction Coating systems.
As a Chief Engineer, I recognize the importance of having qualified professionals on hand. When Roofing and Building Envelope issues arise, I look no further than to Joe and his team at D 7 Consulting for evaluation surveys, peer review, bid specifications, and job oversight. This is a team that you can trust to get it right, the first time, every time.
As a Technical Sales Manager in Southern California for a below grade and podium waterproofing manufacturer, I have had the pleasure of working with D 7 on multiple projects. Through our collaboration, I have witnessed a firm that has a strong focus on attention to detail and provides sound solutions to complex issues. I would recommend D 7 on any and all projects.
I am a manufactures rep for Roofing and Waterproofing. I have had the pleasure of working with D 7 Consulting, Joe Daniels, and John Wilson for over 12 years now. D 7 Consulting is what I consider one of the best, if not THE BEST, roofing/waterproofing consultant within the United States.
D 7 is the first TEAM I think of when an architect or client asks me for a third-party consultant for any roofing/waterproofing project.
D 7 Consulting has been our Waterproofing Consultant since 1990 and is involved in all phases of all our projects; from preparation of preliminary details and outline specifications, through development of our construction documents, and D 7’s disciplined oversight during construction administration. We have worked with D 7 on a range of projects, from high-rise multifamily with private developers to a complex subterranean inter-modal facility with a public transit authority. Rarely does one find a consulting firm, especially waterproofing, whose strengths encompasses all aspects of work from design through construction. The holistic, hands-on approach of the President, Joe Daniels and his in-house team of experts are relentless in resolving building envelope and waterproofing issues. It’s this unique culture of knowledge and service that sets D 7 Consulting apart from all other firms and why we continue to seek their expertise.
