I have a sagging floor on the main floor (30yrs old house). Knowing the basement is finished, is there any point to pay for a structural engineer to try assessing the situation?

Also, what is the estimated cost for this service?

If your basement is finished, an engineer can't tell you much with out opening holes to see how the house is constructed and what the problem or solutions would be. Cost would be min. $300 and up

Thank you James.

I actually had an engineer quoting me $450+HST; yet per your message, it seems he will not be able to validate much..
