"Great service, workmanship, and professionalism.
had to remove and replace cedar shingles for the retrofit. He stayed within budget, with" minimal adjustments, and completed the work on schedule and in a timely fashion. I would recommend
and crew to any homeowner considering a retrofit! VS

"We bought an old house that had a lot of deferred maintenance but we were
on addressing any/all issues related to roof/exterior/foundation" first. We were contemplating a report from another company that called for the reinforcement of our floor joists at the cost of $3500. I looked to
for a second opinion. I like
because he does the work himself. His appraisal of our floor support was detailed and enthusiastic, giving us the confidence to invest the money in parts of the home needing more immediate attention. He provided a cost effective alternative but assured us that it was unnecessary and that our floor support was more than satisfactory. I'm always pleasantly surprised to meet a straightforward tradesman and
has earned my recommendation.

Earthquake Retrofitting reviews in Pasadena


Brought bolting of 1928 home up to code. I give the highest recommendation to this company and
Pasadena Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
who assessed the project and professionally managed it. The workers that came to the house were efficient, considerate of my time, and cleaned up any mess created as a result of the work. I found Zac on a You Tube video and was impressed with his presentation. I made an appointment with him for a quote. The quote for the work done was reasonable and Zac was also very personable-just as he was on the video. Check him out on You Tube if you are seeking a bolting company!
This is my first Angie review and I recommend that anyone needing bolting or an assessment for bolting on their propetry, contact this company and specifically ask for Zac.

This was a livingsocial or Groupon deal ( I frankly cannot recall exactly). I think it was a half price deal for one or two hours of handyman service. It was a little bit difficult getting time set up to do the work. Everyone was professional. We also got a very complete estimate on some carpentry involving another project.

came to our house to determine an estimate for the work. I am remodeling the basement and I was willing to do the demolition work necessary for him to install the necessary structural ties. I am also doing the finish work after the work was completed.

spent two days installing ties. Both days were noisy but that is the nature of drilling and screwing into the structure. Every day they cleaned up after themselves. Before they started the work,

also marked a house plan with the location of the ties so that I could get a building permit.

oversaw the entire process, coming personally to work sometimes when his workers were sick or he needed to check on some things. He showed me all aspects of the work. When wood rot or other problems were uncovered during the retrofit
Pasadena Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was very careful and up front to show me the issues, tell me the additional costs involved, and get my permission to perform the necessary work. His workers were very responsible, cleaning up after themselves every day and working under some uncomfortable conditions (low crawl space, damp and cold areas in the basement) without complaint. They bolted the frame of my house to the concrete foundation and restored my walls to their original condition (replacing wallboard), corrected earlier building errors, tied down my water heater, had a subcontractor install an automatic shut off valve for my gas supply, and followed through with required inspections. I was completely satisfied and fully appreciated their conscientious work on my home.

is run by two brothers,

does the estimate, pricing, etc and
Pasadena Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
leads the work team to do the actual retrofitting. Overall, my experience with them was excellent inspire of them having underestimated the "patch-up" work that was needed.
During the initial visit,
Pasadena Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was extremely professional and did a very complete inspection of the house. He clearly explained what was needed and what was not and was very upfront about any issues he thought might be encountered when they opened up. I was also very happy to learn that they patch up everything (i.e.: you do not have to hire someone separate to put the basement's ceiling back in order). They were not the cheapest of the contractors we contacted but I felt I would get better value.

came to work on the house, the whole team was very professional and they cleaned up after themselves everyday (and boy was there a lot of dust). They made sure to cover everything properly to minimize the dust on items in the basement. It's very loud by the way so if you get this done, make sure you are *out* of the house. They arrived punctually and finished the main work in the time they had estimated. They also found some evidence of water penetration and agreed to not close it up until I had it looked at (they came back several months later to finish things up which was very nice).
The only slight hiccup was when the time came to patch up everything (basically close the ceiling back up).
Pasadena Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
had greatly underestimated its cost. He was, however, willing to negotiate a bit and we came to an agreement. They did do a great job though and didn't think it was possible to patch up a plaster ceiling that well. It looks better now than when they first got here.
So overall, great experience: professional, cordial and very responsive. I strongly recommend them.

- Romain C.

It all went amazingly well.
They arrived for job estimation on time. They clearly discussed available options. The bid was deliverd as promised and explained in detail the work to be done. After acceptance of the bid, during preparation for the work, I discovered a rotted sill plate that wasn't visible until I had removed some old ductwork. Concerned that correction would involve another contractor and affect the start date, I called
Pasadena Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
. Their response was that they could readily deal with the problem and we agreed the additional work would be conducted on a time and materials basis and they estimated an additional day or two of work.
The workers arrived promptly on the scheduled date. All work was done in the basement, and they were able to work around shelving units and other obstacles. They jacked up one side of the house slightly to allow removal of the rotted plate and arranged to have a new one (which was an unusual size because of our 1919 house) custom milled. While waiting for the new plate, they worked in other areas. Work proceeded quickly and efficiently. Though the noise of the hammer drill quickly got old, they had warned us in advance and suggested vacating the house during the construction. Since we had two cats, we elected to stay. Work was completed on time per the schedule modifications to account for the additional work. They cleaned up thoroughly. In spite of the dust from the drilling, it may be that the space was cleaner when they left than when they started.
Given the scope of additional work, I was amazed how little upcharge was involved. It has now been a little over six months since the work was completed and we have noted no cracks in our lath and plaster walls as a result of jacking up the house. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience with

. In summary, we found them to be
- Good problem solvers
- Cost effective
- Fast & efficient
- Highly professional

- Greg D.

The whole job took about 2 1/2 days. They arrived on time and the crew worked really well with a minimum of disruption. The company pulled the proper permit and it was signed off by the City of Los
