DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Joseph and his crew at Cal-Quake are first rate contractors. They performed a retrofit to our 1928 house by adding support and bolting the foundation. We were impressed with their responsiveness and how little disruption this work caused. Crew cleaned up afterwards and it was like they were never there. Our remodel contractor was happy with the beams they added. They also added new secured access vents without even asking, which was a nice touch.

It went very well, when he came over and looked at my lightly damaged retaining wall he was able to suggest repairs I could do that would fortify it without it costing an arm and a leg.  He isn't the first person I've had come and look at this from concrete repair companies, and he wasn't trying to make a deal happen.  He looked at the situation, and knew right off it was too small for his people,...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
John came to my home the day after I filled out an online quote request and although my job was too small for the scale of what his company does, he broke down what I needed to do and helped me to formulate a plan.

Shelly came out before we bought our house to do an inspection and provided a report and estimate for work within a day. The day we got the keys to the house, his team was there, early, and ready to work. They did the work on budget, on time and left the house cleaner than it was when they started. I was most concerned about leveling the house out because it's an 80 year old house with a lot of "s...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Anchor the house around the perimeter with Simpson UFP plates according to detail bolting 4' on center. Shear panel the perimeter cripple walls with 1/2" CDX plywood as per standard detail. Attach the floor joists to the cripple wall plate or mudsill with A35 steel brackets at all perimeter locations. Relevel the house under the dining room area as close as possible by readjusting the girder system in that area, installing new posts. Basically, they bolted the house and leveled it out, plus did cripple walls.

I was dissatisfied because I wanted a more defined report of what was wrong with our home. Their prices they quoted us for the repairs were pretty good.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
They came in to do a home inspection to see if there was anything that was really wrong that needed correction that may be dangerous of causing an accident.

Contacted Cal-Quake and they came out to do a cursory inspection. They recommended underpinning the crack by digging out beneath it and pouring a new concrete block around it. The crew arrived on time and decided that another mended crack farther away also needed to be fixed. They dug out underneath both cracks to expose the wall beneath grade and drilled at each spot to install rebar. They poured...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Underpinned two previously mended foundation cracks and poured a concrete drainage swell along the side of our house to route water away from the wall after water intruded underneath one of the foundation cracks we had repaired by Cal-Quake when we moved in (the original patch was OK).
