About Jeff Samdal
Jeff Samdal PE, RS, PRA
Owner and Principal Inspector
As the company’s founder, Mr. Samdal consistently earns accolades because of his attention to detail, practical approach, knowledge of the industry, and genuine appreciation for clients’ concerns for their real estate investments. He has performed thousands of building inspections and capital needs forecasts for building owners, homeowners, associations, government agencies, lenders, insurers, and more. His credentials rank amongst the best in the industry, and include:
Professional Engineer (PE), Mechanical
Professional Engineer (PE), Civil
Accredited Reserve Specialist (RS)
Professional Reserve Analyst (PRA)
Building Inspection Engineer (BIE)
Structural Pest Inspector (SPI) – WA
He is a graduate of the University of Washington, School of Mechanical Engineering. Mr. Samdal went to work in the hydropower industry after college where he worked with Mechanical, Civil, Electrical and Nuclear engineers on a daily basis. While the in-office design side of the business was interesting, the on-site inspections and construction project management tasks interested him the most.
In 2005, Mr. Samdal took the leap from hydropower and began sub-consulting in the local building inspection industry as Samdal Engineering. In 2009, the name changed to Jeff Samdal & Associates, Inc., no longer acting as a sub-consultant and incorporating at the same time. Now known as Samdal & Associates, the business has remained named after Mr. Samdal because clients continue to seek his specific work for their due diligence needs.
Working with building owners and homeowners associations has led to many requests for construction project assistance. Ultimately, Mr. Samdal started a second company in 2017, True North Construction Management, Inc., to help meet these needs. More information about those services can be found on the True North website here.
Mr. Samdal is a devoted father and husband. He has spent countless hours volunteering as a Little League coach and Scout leader. In his free time, you might find him in the mountains where he loves to ski, hike and climb; at a Husky game; or competing in a local Strong Man competition.
