Earthquake Retrofitting reviews in Los Angeles

  • We had excellent experience with Alpha Structural. Charlie Rosenkranz came to see the property and advice. He checked the structures all around and looked in the basement as far as possible beyond the ducts that were filling up the space and would require tunneling to get to some areas under the building. Communication was excellent. He's knowledgeable and experienced. We appreciated his professional no pressure approach and answering our questions. The front main duplex needed Seismic Retrofit; it wasn't bolted and had cripple walls. There were suspect areas in the foundations that would have to be tested when bolting, to see if the concrete is in good shape. After we agreed to their proposal have the work done we scheduled a range date. They had to submit to the city plans for a permit to do the work and wait for the permit to be issued. While doing the retrofit we found out that the foundation in the front corner was damaged and that the building has sunken and was not level at that corner. Charlie worked out the details and bid for the additional work of Partial Foundation Replacement, Posts/piers, and Jack Lift the corner to level it. He explained the details and what's involved to my satisfaction. Alpha obtained the permit for the work and proceeded. The work crew did excellent work. Jose Morales was the Project Supervisor. They completed the work at a good pace, including the delay for the additional work permit, without complications or complaints from the neighbors. The place was left clean. The work was approved in the inspection which they requested and scheduled with the city. The communication with everyone at the office was also very good. We're very pleased with the experience.

  • I could not ask for better service. Five years after the retrofit I needed documentation for my insurance company. Their representative filled out the paperwork and forwarded it to me the same day I made the request. Everyone at this company as efficient, capable and polite.

  • C&L Construction performed our job with professionalism and expertise! Eli is warm, friendly and honest and that is so important when you have projects in your home. Communication was quick and consistent and we felt included throughout each stage of the project. I would definitely recommend C&L Construction to anyone and use them again myself!

  • Very smooth process from quote to final inspection, Avalin handled it all including the paperwork with the EBB. Professional, friendly, and the experience was painless, we would highly recommend this company.

  • I was selected to be a part of the Earthquake Brace and Bolt program (EBB). I called quite a few contractors to come out and many seemed to be overpriced for my small home of 876 sq feet. One even quoted me $10k!!!! Avalin gave me a very fair price and they were always prompt in their communication. Estar was always prompt in getting back to emails and would answer the same day and the office was also helpful over the phone. I ran into 1 hiccup with the EBB program and Fred, whom i believe is the owner, contacted me right away to help with the issue. Once it came time for contstruction, Avalin came on time the 1st day. I did not need to be home for the construction. I instructed them to close the gate to my house each day when they were done and they did this! They also scheduled the follow up inspection with the city and told me they would meet with the inspector for me, which they did. I saw before and after photos and was happy with the work. I would recommend them to anyone! I'd also recommend signing up for the EBB program! They cover up to 3k of the cost of the retrofit so I only ended up owing about 1,300.

  • Will and his team at CXC did a great job replacing a failing stem wall perimeter foundation on my 1920s mid-city home. I bid the project out to six different contractors. His bid came in close to most and it became quickly apparent that his crew would delivery the highest quality and integrity to the job. His ability to accommodate my scheduling needs, the crew's many years of experience and overall professionalism, and the quick communication from the office administration all resulted in a great experience. A big shout out to WILL (Owner), CELSO (Foreman), and ROSANNA (Administration). Word of advice, get multiple bids and always verify general commercial liability insurance and that it covers the type of work that is going to be done. CXC's was easily verified...others were not and in some instance foundation repair was not even underwritten into their policies. CXC is BBB accredited, many others are not. I would not hesitate to work with Will and CXC again on my future projects.

  • Fred and his team were a pleasure to deal with. Fred advised me of the California earthquake bolting grant program that covered 55% of the cost of the job. My earthquake insurance premium was reduced another $600 as a result of the bolting. I recommend highly Fred and his team.

  • Avalin & Fred were a pleasure to work with. The process was painless and everyone was polite and responsive. We didn't even need to front the grant money, they collected it directly from EBB. No complaints - I highly recommend Fred and his team!

  • Working with Avalin was absolutely the best contracting experience we have had. Fred was knowledgeable, thorough, and patient in preparing our proposal. Estar and Mallory in the office efficiently guided us through the CEA application process. The crew (Mickey) doing the work was friendly and courteous. These folks all know what they're doing and are a true pleasure to work with. We would recommend them without reservation.

  • After getting quotes from 3 different contractors for earthquake bolt and brace program, I'm very happy we've decided to complete it with Avalin. From the very first meeting, they came across prepared, curious and knowledgeable. Their quote was not the lowest, but not the highest. Work was completed on time and communication between the office and us was prompt. They took care of all the paperwork and got the payment directly from EBB, so we did not have to put out money out front. Highly recommend them.
