Earthquake Retrofitting reviews in Rockville
his way, so that we did not have to wait all day for him. He installed the valve and also took time afterwards to explain how the earthquake valve worked. I would definitely hire him again for future plumbing related projects.
The service went very well. They installed a gas shutoff line for our house along with the standard earthquake retrofit. They had to do a bit more than they planned, just the way our house was constructed, but it was well within the quote. The workers were prompt and ended up staying quite late to finish the installation. They were very professional and cleaned up the place well.
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, 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.
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. 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.
As mentioned in previous reviews, up the paint on the gas meter, and discussed with me how the gas shut-off valve worked. And
I intend to hire him for additional work. Thanks
Had a couple of the highest rated companies bid on the job. They all had similar assessments of the project. 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.
