Sample Seismic Retrofit Reviews

"We had a 8ft deep hole in the crawl space. It was allowing water to seap into our basement. We were concerned about the home structurally.and the foundation. We were also unsure what had caused the hole.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
went under the home and inspected the damage. He showed us that the house and foundation was structurally sound and he made several recommendations. He told us what he suspected was the problem and how we could confirm what was happening in the crawlspace. He also told us we could not be sure until we had seen the hole in several different seasons and conditions to insure what was happening underground. (we were worried about an underground river) He advised several strategies. All of these were actually just about photographing the hole and watching rain and drain patterns and figuring out some plumbing and drainage issues. He advised us to wait and watch and make sure we knew what was happening before we did anything. We had had another contractor who had quoted 8000 worth of work, but we knew that company had no idea what was causing the hole, so we especially appreciated
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
's input. It is now several years later and
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
's original diagnosis was correct. We corrected the problem with a bit of pipe and about 50 dollars worth if work.
We also had
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
check our house to see what needed to be done to make it safer in earthquakes. .As we bought this house on auction, we had no idea that it was built to incredibly high standards and that all work to increase the safety during earthquakes was already completed. That earthquake retrofit cost $50 and was invaluable for piece of mind and was highly educational.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was knowledgeable, professional, helpful and honest. My husband is an engineer and he when he questioned another contractor, they had no ideas about how to figure out what was happening under our home., but
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
has lists of ways we could figure it out ourselves with confidence. He was also reluctant do other work in our basement until the causes where known. That was also advise we should have listened too, I would highly recommend

"Impeccable, exquisite work; the best contractor I’ve worked with in my many remodels.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
is just now completing a major remodel at the home where I live and work so I had months of day-long interaction with
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
and his crew. These are very considerate people and very skilled craftsmen.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was a breeze to work with throughout, flexible, accommodating, attentive to all the details while ensuring that the work be done as quickly as possible at a rate I consider a bargain given what other contractors had bid.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
, the foreman for my job is a master, overseeing a first class crew. Come take a look at the work. Though the project was more practical than luxury-oriented, the precision gives the whole house real class. I highly recommend these guys, and am glad I discovered them here on Angie’s list.

"The technician who surveyed the job identified three important problems that were missed by the two other bidders. His bid was very competitive. Potential extra costs were identified. He used photos to consult with his engineer, eliminating a costly visit. He was straightforward about tfhe limitations of protecting our almost all-glass daylight basement wall. A building permit was obtained. We were told in advance about what we needed to clear for their access.
The crew were all company employees. They arrived as scheduled and were very professional. They found a work-around for an unexpected problem and a way to access a difficult location. The technician was available to address my concerns during the job. When I asked for painting of the external fixtures (not in the bid) this was done without extra charge. It really helped the appearance.
The final inspection went smoothly. The final bill was within the bid. Documents for our insurance were provided.

"Initial communication and consultation when without a hitch. After
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
came out and crawled under my house I had a bid in my hand free of charge.
After getting a few more bids I had a few questions and
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was very responsive to my questions. After signing the contract I was verbally told that the job would start the week before Thanksgiving. As the Thanksgiving week came closer, I had a hard time getting information out of the office on when the crew would be out and what they needed. I finally made contact with someone who knew what was going on and got the info I needed.
Once the crew arrived everything went without a hitch. They cleaned up after themselves after each day of the two day job. The building inspector came out and signed off the permit on the first visit.
A big Thank You goes out to the
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
crew!

"We had changed home insurance companies not long ago because they had refused a claim of hail damage that had been pointed out to us by two different, independent home repair professionals with nothing to gain. After a strong wind storm did further damage to our roof, we hired Mr.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
. He stepped into our shoes and did all the interacting with our home insurance company, including filing the claim, meeting with their adjusters, then helping select a roofing company. The results were beyond our highest expectations. Mr.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
put together our claim for a new roof, and it went without a hitch. Mr.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
then helped find a highly professional roofer who personally supervised every step of the process and the work of a highly capable crew. In short, Mr.

Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
came out for an inspection and provided me with an estimate in one day. The job was more complicated then they expected, but they cheerfully figured out the problems and finished the job in three days. They even worked on Christmas eve to make sure everything would be ready for my guests. They protected all the furniture, secured my water heater, bolted my house to the foundation inside and out, primed and painted and left everything in perfect condition. I would recommend them to anyone.

"The work went smoothly with a minimum amount of disruption to myself and my neighbors. The workers showed up promptly every day at 8:30 AM and worked until dusk. They came every day (including a Saturday) until the work was completed. There were complications at the outset but the company owner
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
Corrallo and his foreman
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
came up with a good solution quickly which was approved by my Structural Engineer who planned the job.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
kept me completely aware of everything that was being done and took the time to explain it to me thoroughly.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
came up with a plan to improve upon the design of the drainage system being installed that would allow future connections if I desired other drainage work to be done. I was told by another company they would have to take my deck partially apart to do the dry rot work but
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
was able to do the work without altering my deck. They had everything planned out well so that cement, rock, inspectors all arrived on time. They did a great job of shoring up parts of my deck that needed more support and added designer rock to an area that was cut out for the drainage trough. They cleaned up every day and never left anything in my neighbors driveway. They did a final cleanup that left the whole area spotless. We decided to add some
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
wall in the area that was worked on which upped the price slightly but was within the allowance I budgeted. Finally they also deducted from the cost of the job the discount they had advertised on Angie's List. I am completely satisfied with the work they did and would hire them again.

"Alpha did a great job! We chose them because they were the only company we found who could do the foundation AND drainage work on our house. They were professional, completed the work on time, did not charge me for some extra work I asked them to take care of and overall were a pleasure to work with.
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
who did the inspection and worked up the quote did not try to sell me anything I did not need. He offered cheap and
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
solutions to some of our drainage issues like planting bushes and regrading (instead of pouring concrete). He was patient and was happy to answer all my questions. He worked up a comprehensive and clear quote. I knew right from the start that this company would get the job done right.

The crew that actually did the work was also fantastic. They were respectful of my property and happily answered all my questions about what they were doing.
Hopefully we don't have to get any more foundation work done, but if we do I will certainly call Alpha.

Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
is a licensed general contractor with more than 28 years of experience in the greater Los
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
area. We selected him for our house in Pasadena (built in 1926) as some of our neighbors used his services and were very pleased. We also had quotes from two other earthquake specialists and
Raleigh Seismic Retrofit Provider Name Locked
came across as the most professional and also had the most competitive price. He is very thorough, managed to squeeze through some tight spots in our basement and cleaned up thoroughly so that the basement wasn't dusty. Very trustworthy individual. The City Inspector knew him and spoke highly of him. I strongly recommend his earthquake protection services.
