is no fail-safe way for us to be able to
forecast the existing conditions of your particular project. Without
disassembling otherwise serviceable portions of a building, or access to
accurate plans of an existing structure, we can only make reasonable
assumptions regarding existing conditions based on our experience and
training. We do not have x-ray vision, and can not see into walls
