Earthquake Retrofitting reviews in Torrance

  • I requested an inspection and estimate for upgrading of the foundation/sill bolting to obtain a California Earthquake Authority (CEA) Hazard Reduction Discount on our Earthquake Insurance Policy. Julian Construction provided us with a complete foundation inspection and provided us with their recommendation for foundation sill bolt reinforcement work and the associated cost estimate. We then scheduled the construction for a couple months later. Julian Construction prepared drawings and obtained the required City permits, and performed the work as promised. The retrofit work went very smoothly and it was completed in less that two days. Julian Construction returned after the Labor Day Holiday to receive the City's Final Inspection/Acceptance. Julian's Forman and carpenters were very courteous and professional and they provided us with before and after photos to document the work. I requested Julian Construction to complete the CEA's Dwelling Retrofit Verification Form and we subsequently received approval of a CEA premium discount from our Insurance Company.

  • Efficient. Knowledgeable. Very fast work. Excellent price! The only problem is that the workers cleaned their concrete tools in situ, damaging an already over-alkaline soil and leaving a thin cement skin on part of my garden. Everyone I've ever had doing concrete work at my house has done the same. In Shay's defense, I forgot to give him specific instructions about this problem. All in all, I would highly recommend Doheny and Shay Aboav to anyone wanting to do similar work. I was very impressed by overhearing the remarks of the city inspector, who pointed out that the earthquake retrofit way exceeded minimum specs, was in fact suitable for a multistoried building!

  • They Julian team showed up exactly on schedule of the day of service. They were courteous and polite and proceeded to work promptly. The team of 6 worked efficiently and effectively together, moving concrete, steel, and tools from the truck to the work locations under the residence. The work was performed per my prior coordination, and the job was finished ahead of schedule. Being a handy person, I inspected the work personally and was impressed with quantity and quality of the results achieved in a short time span. One final benefit they offered was to allow installment payments for my job. A year later as we are finishing up the payment schedule, all work is holding together well, with no complaints.
    Thanks!

  • Most contractors over quote you and then under deliver, but not Sinai Construction.  The guys are real craftsmen and pay attention to details.  We had some estimates for earthquake retrofitting and also fixing some foundation issues and sagging floors.  Their price wasn?t the lowest, but it was fair.  What I was really pleased with was the quality of their work.  They worked on everything like it was their own house.
    The retrofitting started on time and the crew works very well together.   They were quite fast putting in the mudsill UFP10 plates on the first floor.  2.5 days and our old house was securely bolted to the raised foundation.  While they were under the house, we had them brace up the floors and we also moved a drain pipe drilling through the foundation concrete wall.  They also did some cement work to patch up the foundation ? great custom work - very smooth, very clean.
    Chris kept us informed and he also coordinated some follow-up with the guys coming over to fix up every last detail.  The stucco was repaired to match our existing design.  We had some custom modifications done to secure the access - very high quality work.  Everything we swept up and washed down each day.  So, we really didn?t have to do much clean up after them.  These are the most professional guys we have ever had work on our house.  And we have had quite a few contractors over working on our old house.  If you need foundation work or earthquake retrofitting - these are the guys you want to call.

  • Mr. Cohen was very prompt in responding to my request for an estimate. His estimate for the work was right in line with what I expected after talking to several friends who had similar work done. When Mr. Cohen did the estimate he said that he'd have his crew put screening over the foundation vents while they were doing the seismic work. This at no extra charge. All work was done over a period of two days while I was at work. When I came home after they had finished I noticed that they had not installed the screening as he said they would. When I mentioned this to Mr. Cohen he said that it was his fault in that he forgot to tell his crew to instal it. He said that he would have his crew come back out and install the screening - which they did within a few days. Remember, this was for an item that was included at no charge. This was great service. Upon the completion of the job Mr Cohen sent me a copy of the signed building permit and a letter to my insurance company certifying that the work had been completed. The company was thoroughly professional and I would not hesitate to use them again.

  • They came out to take a look at my foundation and see what the problems were and what their recommendations were. The first gentleman recommended that if I fixed the drainage problem in my yard that I would not have to do anything under the home, but that I should so an earthquake retrofit. The second gentleman recommended that some work be done under the home to reinforce the supports.
