Customer Question

I just had work done under my crawl space. They replaced rotten joists, but did not bring them back to the center support. Instead they used 4x4 posts on cinder block and also used 4x4 for the beam. In some cases they set it up with a T structure. I'm pretty sure this is all wrong.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Like what?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Structural Engineers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

I'm not trying to be rude, but should I ask for someone else to help me?
