Brea Earthquake Retrofitting Articles

Sample Reviews


We had our 1930 house's foundation bolted to the foundation. Because the basement is 3/4 finished and some walls are covered with built-in-bookshelves and the like, it was going to be cheaper and easier to access most of the house through the outside, by removing the lowest row of shingles. For that part of the house,
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
used heavy-duty cement screws and straight metal plates to bolt the foundation to the sill plate, and smaller metal plates to connect the sill plate to the "box" around the exterior of the floor joists. They used an internal plate system to secure the foundation in the unfinished part of the basement. They did lead containment when they removed the shingles and kept chips cleaned up. Once the foundation work was done, they replaced the original row of cedar shingles with pre-primed, matching cedar shingles. They did a few other securing touches with some metal reinforcement plates to some of the beams supporting the house. They also did some basic bolting of our garage's sill plate to its slab and a few other things to secure the garage.

is the owner and he personally came out for both the estimate and the work, overseeing one assistant. He was communicative and to-the-point. He came in at the estimated cost. All the work was as described and seemed very solid. They cleaned up very well every day they were here -- all the work took about 4-5 days, including getting the city permit done.

I have worried about not having my foundation bolted for a while, but it still took me time to bite the bullet and get it all done.

came to give me an initial quote/inspection and I was very impressed with how candid and knowledgeable he was. I decided I would use them even if a bit higher than others, but honestly their quote to me was also competitive. The crew finished work in about 3 days and left the basement even cleaner than before! Things looked great and the work passed inspection on the first try. I had a great experience with these guys.

Cipre, owner, was in immediate contact, arranged a time, was on-time and finished the work early. He left the work area clean and in order and accompanied me around the property to ensure all pilot lights were relit and operating correctly

As mentioned in previous reviews,
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
cleaned and touched up the paint on the gas meter, and discussed with me how the gas shut-off valve worked. And
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
is very patient, highly qualified and knowledgable.

I intend to hire him for additional work. Thanks

Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was the most responsive, gave very clear explanations of what work was going to be accomplished and was very competitive on the price. We needed to start the project earlier than he had originally scheduled and he accommodated us without any issues. Great job. don't anticipate needing to do this again but if we do we'll return.
- Nicole H.

My husband and I couldn't be more happy with the quality of
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
's work and the manner in which it was performed.
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
is very personable, punctual and professional and taught us a lot in the process. I highly recommend working with him, and we're sleeping quite a bit easier now that the work has been done!
- Robert M.

Went over options that would work or my specific older home.
He could not provide the service himself.. but gave me great information
and also names of contractors who do that type of work.
Great service. Nice guy. Obviously cares about doing a good job.

- Dennis S.

9am Monday came and went with a no show. I contacted Christian to determine what had happened around 10am. He stated that he was running some errands and would contact me back. No return call so I emailed him to see if that would be an easier mode of contact. He replied apologizing that he had inadvertently combined 2 appointments due to a similar address. He asked when would be a good time to reschedule. I emailed back stating that I was available for the next 3 days and asked if the next morning worked for him. It is now the 3rd day and still no email or phone call back. I have contacted livingsocial for a refund as this was my only off week between now and when the offer expires in October.
- Craig L.

As an engineer myself, I really appreciated
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
's approach. Unlike some others, he actually does some basic load calculations to figure out how many anchor plates are needed to hold the house to the foundation. He was very good about explaining this and how things would be installed, etc. I had a somewhat tight timeline, and they were able to squeeze my job in during the holiday season. Overall work and cleanup was great.

I had a great experience with
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
. I got bids from three companies but felt like
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was the most knowledgeable on what work needed to be done. His cost was right in the middle of the pack, so I felt comforted that the price was fair.
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was ready to do the work only a week or so after I selected him, and he was very prompt each time he came to the house. The final product is excellent and very thorough - I would definitely recommend
Brea Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
for your earthquake retrofit!
