    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++

    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!

    Sage Builders Inc
    My wife and I were looking for someone to retrofit our house. We looked up different companies online and we checked out many of them. We eventually stumbled upon Sage Builders and we really liked the service that they provided. They were very respectful to us and our home and they got things done. They gave fair estimates and were very honest in the things they said and ultimately we decided to hire them to do the job. They did a great job and we were very satisfied with their service.

    Sage Builders Inc
    Being completely uneducated on the foundation of my home, Josef broke everything down for me and my husband and explained everything to us in words that we could understand. He was honest, gave us a fair price, and have been in close contact with the Sage team (of course I have 100 questions) and everyone has been extremely kind and understanding. The technicians were wearing masks and kept a safe distance which is important during times like these. Overall, Were extremely Happy with the work that was done and will most likely be reaching out to sage again for any other projects we have for advice. Thank you for your honesty, patience, and good work!!!

    J&C Retrofit Construction Inc.
    J&C did a great job on my retrofit. I hired them to do earthquake bolting and add some additional girders and piers to fix some bouncy floors in my house. Everything was done very professionally for a fair price

    J&C Retrofit Construction Inc.
    The job went very well: it started on time and ended a few days early. There were no surprises - no “extras”, so my cost was as agreed. During construction, Juan gave me regular updates on the project and he answered all my questions promptly. Their bid for the project was thousands of dollars less than competitors. I definitely recommend J&C Retrofit Construction.

    J&C Retrofit Construction Inc.
    I called J & C Retrofit, given that they were listed in the contractors state License Board, and had the necessary certification, provided by the Earthquake Brace & Bolt program, funded by FEMA. Indeed I called a number of companies given EBB recommends at least 3 estimates, and when I called J & C, and asked some questions the contractor, Juan, took the call personally and explained to me the different kinds of retrofits and relative costs, based on condition of foundation, of which I was totally unaware. I was especially impressed by the knowledge, expertise, honesty and patience of the contractor, who unlike other companies I had called who had neglected to explain these different categories, which were then confirmed by another contractor I had previously called. We scheduled an appt, which unlike some other companies, was free and the same contractor I had spoken with, Juan, arrived at scheduled time and spent considerable time under the house and provided us with completely unexpected good news. We bought the house in 2005, and received no paperwork in this regard, and had no idea that one of the previous owners had arranged for this. He also took pictures for our records which we forwarded to our insurance agency. It is within this context that I highly recommended J & P Retrofit

    Avalin Seismic Construction Co Inc
    Avalin is a very professionally run construction company. Fred did the work as we agreed upon in a timely manor and I was very satisfied with the whole experience, The workers were on time, did not make a mess and cleaned up at the end of the day. Fred took care of the permit and the inspection by the city. Thanks Fred for a job well done.
