"This was the best encounter we have ever had with a contractor. BY FAR. If he said he would be there by 8 am, his crew would be there at 7:55. Punctuality is very" important to
's company. Our 'downhill' foundation was slipping due to age, not catastrophe. In the course of unearthing it,
found a large crack! Strengthened and repaired it perfectly. The work was superbly done. To code with inspections. Our garage room is splendidly done. Cleanly. The crew tidied up every day. On the last day, I found

We had to do a seismic upgrade to our small one-
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
house and had previously consulted with two structural engineers on the scope of the job. We decided to just bolt the foundation and strengthen the post-to-beam connections. Whereas other contractors who looked at it tried to upsell us on
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
-walling and whatnot
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
saw the engineer’s point: That, given the small size of our house,
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
-walling was beneficial but was not necessary. He got himself into the very-tight crawlspace and looked at it thoroughly (some contractors would only peek at the space with a flashlight -
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
crawled on his belly and was very gentle with the duct-work from our furnace).

The bid was very reasonable, though I did have to call him a couple of times to get him to write it up (I have found this is just part of working with contractors - the squeaky wheel gets the grease - we used to think it was a red flag but we are older and wiser now). And, wow,
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
got in there and banged the work out in two days with just an assistant. I got on my belly (inspired by
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s example) and found the work to be excellent. He also walked us through what it would take for us to do the
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
-walling ourselves.

Overall this has been the most positive experience we have had with a contractor since we bought the house 10 years ago. We will definitely be asking him to bid on future projects and I hope to work with him again

I needed to get rotting plywood "siding" replaced on one wall of my 1906 Edwardian, and needed to have the entire exterior repainted. And I needed to get it all done in about two months, before the rainy season.

After getting separate estimates from a handful of painting contractors and siding contractors, I found
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
based on his excellent Angie's List and Yelp reviews.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
immediately impressed me with his ability to understand what I was asking for and help me translate that into what I needed.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
's quote was not the cheapest, but it was fair -- and it was the most-detailed estimate I received from any of the contractors I spoke with. I plan to be in this house for a while and wanted work that would last, and
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave me the confidence he could deliver exactly that.

San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
is the general contractor and directly employees his own carpenters. He subs out painting, demolition, and other work.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
was on-site nearly every day, keeping an eye on the job, and he was in contact with me nearly as often. He was always easy to reach by phone and email, and returned messages promptly.

The work on the siding went more quickly and smoothly than I had anticipated. With an old house, you expect complications along the way -- and we ran into a few, but
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
worked through them and kept on schedule. Examples:
Vibration from the exterior siding removal managed to damage some of the interior plaster.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
repaired and repainted the interior at his expense. The building inspector mentioned an upcoming code change that would require gypsum board on top of the plywood sheathing for fire protection. Since the code change wasn't in effect yet, the easy thing to do would have been to skip it.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
presented the options to me, worked out the (minor) additional cost, and - most importantly - figured out how to fit in the additional work without impacting the schedule.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
has some very talented carpenters working for him. We discovered rot in some of the detailed trimwork on the front of the house, and his carpenter
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
was able to fashion (on-site!) a replacement that is indistinguishable from the original - exactly matching the nearby trim.

The painting also got off to an outstanding start. The paint crew spent nearly three weeks doing absolutely meticulous prep work on the front of my house - scraping, patching, filling, caulking. They handled minor repairs themselves, and called in
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
's carpenters for a few cases where more significant repairs were needed (like the trim I mentioned above). Their clear attention to detail made me confident the paint job would last.

However -- and this is my only complaint about the entire project -- when it came time to paint the back of the house the work was not up to the high standards of the rest of the project. The prep work was not as detailed, and the painting itself was sloppy -- e.g., the painters didn't bother masking the metal roof of an overhang, and it got covered with overspray; there were also a number of places where the paint was bubbling and cracking. When I complained to
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
, he got the problems corrected promptly (and this is one reason I feel
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
is absolutely deserving of an A rating for the entire project). It just seemed surprisingly out of character compared to the "do it right the first time" approach that
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
's subs delivered on the rest of the job.

San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
accommodated my requested changes along the way -- including a late decision to change from cedar siding to HardiePlank, and some added interior painting as long as the painters were on site. Costs for the additional work were reasonable and at exactly the rates in
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
's original quote.

One more nice touch:
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
called me several months after the job was complete, specifically to ask how the paint was holding up on the back of the house where I'd had the problems described above. It's great to find that level of accountability and follow-up in a contractor.

when he was the foreman for some work on my daughter?s house. I was very impressed by his careful workmanship and attention to detail, both in the interior work and especially in the restoration of the fa?
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
. When I inquired about someone to put up some plywood sheer walls in the ground level of a rental property,
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
was recommended to me. It turned out to be a much bigger job than just putting up some plywood sheer walls, as parts of the foundation needed to be replaced.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very helpful in recommending a good civil engineer to design the foundation work--who turned out to be an acquaintance of my wife. As the demolition got underway, we discovered some serious termite damage to structural posts and the main beam, which had to be replaced. I was completely satisfied with the results, both the quality of the workmanship and the pace of the work.
San Francisco Earthquake Retrofitting Contractors Provider Name Locked
said that the job would be finished in two months, and he beat that by about a week, despite the extra work that had to be done because of the termite damage. This was important to me, because our tenants were not able to park in the garage while the construction was in progress, and I wanted to minimize the inconvenience to them. The work also resulted in a noticeable improvement in stability for the building?the tenants n the upper unit have reported that the floors no longer shake when a bus goes by.

I am from the mid west and have worked with contractors, both here and there. I can honestly say that
