    Golden Retrofit & Foundation Repair
    The process went very smoothly. Golden Retrofit did a fantastic job making this project go by very quickly with a very affordable rate and I couldn���t be happier. The owner Ross was very helpful and very informative which I can appreciate, would definitely recommend to anyone needing to get this type of smooth sail job done.

    Retro Experts
    I am a Tenant of a building that this company did a Soft Story Retrofit on. Prior to the construction starting we were advised we would all lose our parking spaces for the term of the work. The estimate they gave us for the work to be done was to be between 3-8 weeks. We are currently at week 14. Now I am not able to talk about the quality of the work they are performing, what I can speak to is their lack of responsiveness and information about the work they are doing. They have now missed their estimated date of completion by NEARLY DOUBLE, and never once during that time reached out the we tenants of this building to give us a reason for the delay, nor a new estimated date of completion. When I reached out to their designated point of contact the first time at week 8 (a woman named Hilda Cabrera) for an update, she only returned my call after 3 days and only because I called twice. At that time she told me it would be an additional 3 weeks (for a total of 11). When that deadline passed I called her again, briefly spoke with her as she would need to call the person on site to get more information. 6 (SIX) days later she finally returned my phone call - this delay in responsiveness is unacceptable in any Customer Service industry. What is worse is she did not answer either of my questions 1. Specifically why is this taking much longer than expected, and 2. What is the new estimated date of completion? She would not give me a new estimated date of completion, nor tell me specifics of why this delay. So I asked to speak with her boss - one of the owners named Dee Sopher (sp?). Dee was very kind of the phone and listened to my concerns and questions, and told me that it was unacceptable for Hilda to have waited a week to return my phone call, she is just overly busy. IT has now been nearly a week since my phone call with Dee, and now Dee has not followed up with any of my requests from our phone call (the same two requests as before plus to please let not just myself know, but to let my entire building know what's going on as we are all very curious). There have been no updates to my building, no updates on what is taking so long, no updates on an estimated date of completion... In fact - the worst part about this.... All last week they had 2 workers here for 3 days. That's it. They are Drastically behind their estimated date of completion and they decide to send 2 workers for only 3 days. It would make more sense to send 6 or 8 workers and just get the job done. In summary: Do not use this company. They are unresponsive. Refuse to share information. Have gone completely over their estimated date of completion, and are not sending the amount of workers necessary to catch up, or get this job completed ASAP.

    We would highly recommend Yoav and YD Construction. We honestly could not have been any more pleased with the level of service and expertise that was displayed by Yoav. His attention to detail and excellent communication made the job go smoothly. He were very professional, helpful and insightful during the whole job, especially when issues came up and we were not sure how to proceed. We are extremely happy with the results of our remodel.

    They showed us the plan of what we needed based on our area. I was given a timeline for completion and they finished on time. They were polite and courteous. They took care of the necessary permits. It was a very easy process.

    Nexxus Remodeling Inc
    Tony is my family���s go to person when it comes to remodeling and construction needs. If you are looking for a quality remodel and don���t want to worry all day about whether they get it right, Tony is your guy. My house did not need a ton of cosmetic changes, so I did not take any before photos, but please take a look at his website/yelp for the possibilities that his team can do. Personally, here is the list of things he handled for us: 1) Painting the inside 2) Painting the outside 3) Drywall Patching and Repair 4) Refinishing the hardwood floors 5) Installing and fixing gutters 6) Repairing the roof 7) Switching to a tankless water heater 8) Retrofitting the foundation to be earthquake compliant. 9) Electrical Repair 10) Carpentry woodworking 11) Change the bathroom vanity and plumbing. I���ve been more than pleased with the job and quality of work exhibited. Aside from my house, I was present when my parents used him for their house���s remodel and the work he did there was amazing. Previously, my family used a shoddy contractor who cut a lot of corners (e.g. putting no water barrier around tubs/showers), but Tony rectified all of that and did things the right way. In fact, when my parent���s gutters were installed and they went through two rainy seasons, they noticed how the gutters could be improved. We told Tony and he fixed it two years later with no charge! This is a man who wants to make sure your stuff is right AND that you are pleased. Aside from the excellent quality of work, Tony has a good sense of design and can give good recommendations on what someone should do. I found that refreshing because other contractors simply want to be told what to do and don���t operate as good soundboard for ideas. Many times, people have a rough idea what they want, but lack the experience and vision to execute. Tony has the experience and design eye to supplement your vision. Tony also wants to make sure you are happy with your place, so this means if you find something wrong or not to your liking, he will find a proper solution. All in all, I���ve been very pleased with Tony���s services. For any large and serious renovation, I will definitely use Tony because I know the work will get done, it will be great and I will be happy. He is someone I will recommend time and time again to everyone who needs a great contractor.

    Julian Construction Inc
    Julian Construction was professional from the time of the estimate all the way through to final inspection.  Their bid was somewhat lower than two other bids I received, and the quality of the work met all of my expectations.  The crew arrived on time, dressed in the company attire, and was very polite and professional.  I had done considerable research so was an informed customer.  They installed Simpson Strong Tie UFP10 and A35 fasteners consistent with the requirements of LA Dept. of Building and Safety Standard Plan No. One.  Expansion anchors were used to attach the UFP10's to the foundation wall.  Following the installation, Javier came the next day to complete the torque of the expansion anchors as required by the City process.  All in all, it was a pleasure working with Julian Construction and I will recommend them and use them again.

    Anchorstrong Construction, Inc.
    I went with this company because of the price, and didn't know for sure how they would perform.  
    Once it was scheduled, the permit was pulled, and the work was completed and approved by the city.
    I found them very professional, and they cleaned up after performing the work.
    I would totally recommend them to my friends who need foundation work or retrofitting.
    If I ever bought another house that needed this type of work done, I would definitely use them.

    California Foundation Works Inc
    "I had to repair my rental property in North Hollywood as the signs inside the home were pretty obvious we had foundation problems. No one really enjoys foundation repair to their home. And, yes, your ideas of what will happen are probably true.��
    However, California Foundation Works will walk you through each step with sanity and confidence. Upon my first meeting with California Foundation Work,�� Brian came out and explained the details of the work with clarity and detail. He was honest about the change that was about to happen around the perimeter of my home. Hauling of dirt, tunneling under the house and the removal of landscaping were executed with efficiency and as little damage as possible. Brian will tell you that he is available at any time regarding questions or concerns. And, he is. He addressed concerns, arrived on the site and remained calm throughout the foundation work.��
    The construction crew foremen, Juan, provided assurance and answered any questions on site. The workers were polite and courteous in my presence and as they worked outside of my home. When the leveling of the house started, juan provided a meticulous approach, although the raising of the house (about 7 inches!) was done a few weeks ago, the 45 piers are solid and the house has not presented with any new cracks or gaps. ��
    California Foundation Works will approach you as the most important client they have. Their work ethic and thorough professional approach set them apart from other companies. Highly recommended if you have the unfortunate necessity of foundation repair."

    So, this review is not about the quality of their work. It is to advise all who may use Seismic Safety to get EVERY detail in writing. You should not take Ed or any of the others word when you speak with them that they will do what they say.
    Through November 1 2014, I have received no refund or supporting documents approved by the buyer regarding the scope and cost of this work.

    Buyer Beware.
