    Alpha Structural, Inc.
    Excellent experience again with Alpha Structural. Charlie Rosenkranz came to see the 3-story apartment building in West Hollywood. We discussed what the soft story retrofit plans will likely include. He's knowledgeable and experienced. We appreciated his professional no-pressure approach and answering our questions. Alpha performed an exploratory investigation of the support structure, as architectural plans were not available. They engineered the plans with city approval. They then consulted with us and provided the approved THP (Tenant Habitability Plan) paperwork. Production Manager Dave Schlaich and Job Supervisor Seth Price met me before construction. Dave went over the approved plans and explained the work that would be performed, and the purpose. They both answered all my questions. Lawrence and Antonio were the main work team. They were very pleasant and answered all our questions. Both had great explanations with Lawrence being very detailed. Seth provided timely progress reports by phone and text. He answered all questions, and provided contacts for automatic shut-off gas valves and stucco work. Despite Covid-19, they scheduled and passed inspections, and completed the work in under a month. We've seen projects by other companies stuck in limbo for months with no progress, so we chose Alpha to avoid complications. They removed all debris, and left the property clean. The tenants and neighbors had no complaints. Daniel Aparicio also explained various issues. Communication with everyone, including the office staff, was excellent. We're very pleased with this experience.

    Alpha Structural, Inc.
    This is THE company to use. I had an old 1907 wooden house sitting on a decaying brick foundation and needing a sister foundation installed and a complete seismic retrofit. Even during the bidding process, Brad from Alpha was extremely attentive without being assertive. I contacted four other companies although one I eliminated since they charged a fee for inspecting. Alpha was very timely with their bid and flexible when I needed help with the budget. All the way through the process, every single person at Alpha was extraordinarily good at customer relations, returned emails immediately, and stayed in constant contact throughout the entire process. Whenever there was a slight change to the original plan due to permitting or a plumbing adjustment, Alpha was very proactive and made sure everything was communicated clearly and promptly. I have really NEVER worked with a company that had such excellent communication skills. This is really one reason I selected them to do the work and, even though they may not have been the least expensive, it is worth the extra price for this reason alone. And Alpha Structural's work speaks for itself as well. Everything was done precisely and well beyond code, an unbid section of foundation was provided under the front porch without increase to the budget, and all materials used were of the highest quality. The project went on somewhat longer than estimated due to permit changes and a short weather delay but was still finished in a timely way. My home is our family's largest asset and it is a great relief to now know it is sitting on a solid foundation. The entire process from first to last was excellent and I cannot say enough good things about the way Alpha Structural handled the project. From the front office to the boots on the ground: A++

    Avalin Seismic Construction Co Inc
    I am so happy that I chose Avalin as our contractor. I got direct communication with the owner and his small but efficient team. They were always extremely courteous, friendly and professional, and were very approachable and pleasant in answering all my questions along the way. They helped me understand every part of the complex EBB process, handled payment from EBB directly, and took the initiative to upload the correct forms and documentation to the program for me, as well as scheduling official reviews. The cost for the work was extremely fair. From the beginning, before signing the first work contract, I was guaranteed that I would not pay a cent above the estimate, and they were true to their word. The work itself was fast, professional and no-nonsense, and completely COVID-safe and contact-free, the workers never even had to come inside the house. I feel safer and more prepared now, thanks to Fred and his team at Avalin. I am so thankful to them for for helping me get there in such a painless and efficient way. Thank you!

    Bay Cities Construction
    I couldn’t be happier with Bay Cities. The work on my house was spread out over 2+ years. Alex and Casey worked with me on design and kept within my budget. All of their staff was professional and respectful. Alex and Casey listened to my “wants” and concerns and gave me the pros and cons of each.

    Sage Builders Inc
    Very well. I hired someone to go to my mother's home because my husband noticed that the left side of her home was sinking. Very easy to get in touch with somebody, and within 2 weeks, my mom's home was good to go.

    Sage Builders Inc
    As someone who lives in California, earthquakes have always been a huge concern for me. I reached out and contacted earthquake retrofitting specialists who really know how to make you feel secure with the work they provide. I decided to hire Sage Builders to complete my project, and they definitely did not disappoint. Joseph and his workers repaired my foundation at a fair price and a timely manner.

    JB Handyman
    Julio arrived on time. He and his helper were expedient in getting the work done with complete satisfaction. He went the extra mile to complete the custom repair to the side gate by accompanying me to Home Depot to make sure we got the right tools; and, we got the correct fasteners to secure the China cabinet. Friendly and professional. Will hire again.

    Sage Builders Inc
    My wife noticed that areas of our foundation started cracking. We immediately searched for someone who could repair it. We looked all over the Internet for someone who could get this job done for us. We met with many different companies, but eventually met with Sage Builders, and were very pleased with them. We decided to hire them to do the job because we felt that they were the most honest and trustworthy. They completed the job for us a few weeks ago and they did a really great job. I decided that I should leave this review because I felt like they really did do an outstanding job.

    Doheny Concrete Construction Inc
    Shay is our go-to guy not just for foundation work but for everything concrete. He has been involved in many aspects of our 4 year long fixer upper project. We trust him to give us his most reasonable price and rely on his expertise for many difficult construction issues that we have faced. He has also been great at getting us leads on other projects we have had and recommend him to anyone looking for concrete and foundation work. He also has a great attitude and is a pleasure to work with!
