Earthquake Retrofitting

The seismic retrofitting process involves the installation of engineered metal connectors and other reinforcement materials at key stress points throughout your home’s structure. The specially designed hardware includes hold downs, anchors & anchor bolts, strap ties and framing angles. Wood blocking and structural sheathing may also be incorporated into many retrofit projects. The goal of a retrofit is to secure/bolt down your home to the concrete foundation. During a seismic event these reinforcements greatly increase the chances of your home surviving with minimal damage. The cost of the retrofit is typically recovered between four to six years as you save on insurance premiums. We offer free estimates to assess your property. We will then provide you with a comprehensive bid explaining what we feel is necessary to perform a correct and functional retrofit. Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions or would like to receive an estimate.

Foundation repair

Here is a list of some of the work we do. Foundation is a case by case situation that requires experts to analyze and asses what should be done to repair:

Remedial repairs of cracked, settled, shifted, rotated and/or deteriorated sections of concrete perimeter foundation walls. Any type of post/pier issues (shifted, deteriorated, cracked, settled, “over shimmed,” undersized, etc. Repair of wood damaged framing/structural components in the foundation system area.

Floor leveling performed on a case-by-case basis. In instances where a crawl space has debris in it that will limit our ability to perform any of the above tasks, we will also remove and haul away past debris that has been left in the space (we, of course, always remove all debris created during the course of our work).

Creating additional support systems in key locations of the foundation area to accommodate existing structural deficiencies and further protect your home.

My aunt has been looking for a new house and she was finally able to find out after all this this time (it was her first purchase so she killed me with questions...).Our loan requires (and everyone should do it anyways) a full inspection and appraisal. During the inspection, it came the inspectors attention that there were cracks in the foundation. He informed us right away and we contact Gold Retrofit (referred by my broker friend) to get a quote. We were able to come to an agreement and they really helped make the process much easier than I originally expected. We were able to get the seller to discount the price due to this, and fortunately the price was extremely fair and the seller easily agreed. I'm thankful Gold Retro was able to help us out quickly. This was required by our lender so this was tremendously helpful. They came in immediately once we got the required paperwork taken care of and started to work on the foundation. They fixed it up in no time and we were able to close escrow promptly. My aunt is extremely glad we had all of this taken care of, and I'm glad Golden Retro was so helpful and prompt.

I was recommended to Golden Retrofit and Foundation Repair by a friend and my experience with them was pleasant from the beginning to the end. Joey was very professional and answered all my questions with such knowledge and confidence. After two different estimates with other retrofit companies, I chose to go with golden Retrofit and Foundation Repair because his price was unbeatable. He was able to fix all my retrofitting issues and even went further to check my foundation was in excellent condition. Highly recommended!!!

Recently I stumbled across an article about earthquake retrofitting. My moms house was build 70 years ago so it turned out we were in the category that should seriously consider doing it. We found out there is a program from CA called the EBB, we singed up for the lottery but it didn’t work out. I decided it was important enough that I do it anyways for the piece of mind. I am the type to research a lot and I settled on Golden Retrofit & Foundation Repair. I’m glad I did. From Joey in the office to Ross my technician. They were top notch. Definitely recommend!

Had about 3-4 different companies come out to assess what I needed done. I need a foundation repair ASAP. My house is from the 1950’s and it was just time. We got so many different quotes with different price ranges, and this one seemed to fit my budget and I’m happy with the company & results. Thanks to Ross and Joey, I am now at piece.They say the more you spend, the better the job. It isn’t true!!!! Just trust the company and do your research beforehand. Golden retrofit are the people to go to!!!! Friendly, professional, affordable.

Hired Golden Retrofit about 2 months ago. Two months later, I am still getting follow up calls to make sure the foundation repair is in perfect condition. I think what led me to pick them the most was the customer service, the flexibility, and the prices. Compared to the other companies, the price was fair and reasonable. Happy with Sam and company. I definitely recommend them. We will be doing an earthquake retrofit sometime in the future.

Golden Retrofit have been great in terms of getting the job done as quickly as possible. A couple of families got their homes seismic retrofitted (another term for earthquake). I would hire these people if i were you. They built up a great team.. I am very social so getting along with them through the process has been great!

Foundation repair was quickly needed. As I came across a friend who went through the same thing, i recommended my parents use the same company. That is how we got to golden retrofit. They were great in terms of timing and pricing. Those are the qualities my father cares about, especially when people could easily waste your time in the construction world. Thank Golden Retrofit for meeting our standards, you guys truly show what a great company is. Thanks!

Needed some earthquake retrofitting done in my house. I’ve had some pretty traumatic experiences living elsewhere. After that, I decided to find a company fit for me and my needs. With my work schedule, Golden Retrofit was able to fit me in the most and as quickly as I could take off work to allow them to do their job. They were great people to work with for the couple of weeks they were here. Sam was great, I recommend him.

Through a referral, I was able to find one of the best companies to help assist me with my issue. We had a bunch of cracks…did some research turns out I need a foundation repair. Called in and Joey was able to help assist me further on what steps to take. Next step was getting a permit and from there the steps just got easier. They finished before they anticipated and ended up lowering the cost as well, since the damages weren’t as bad once they were going into fix. Most people would still charge the same, since some of us aren’t looking/educated on these topics. I appreciate their honesty!

Really loved using this company. I begged my parents to earthquake retrofit the house. Ever since the earthquake back in the 90's i have just been thinking about how safety is most important. They gave in! we used Golden Retrofit and loved them and their team. Thanks for everything you have done to protect us for anything in the future!

Great team effort. They showed me how invested a company can be with each other. They took the time to perfect my foundation repairs. Which is what i needed. I didn't want the company to come back a week later because of a mistake. Loved working with them. Thanks to Joey for being so well-organized and so helpful

They were attentive and great people to work with. Joey, himself, did everything he could to accommodate me as much as possible. With pricing, timing, scheduling, and etc. Ross was the one who assisted us, while Joey was the one i spoke with on the phone. They were a great company to work with! I am happy to be collaborating with them as they were helpful in fixing the cracks in my foundation.

Originally came into Golden Retrofit thinking I needed some major work done to my home, but they explained to me what needed to be done and some stuff that didn’t need too. They could of easily charged me, but instead they were honest & truthful about the work that needed to be done. We needed to fix a bunch of cracks that happened inside and outside of my house. They took care of the permits and everything else. They were the best choice hands down.

Golden Retrofit performed the brace and bolt on my house. It took two days to complete and the process with them seemed so easy. I had one come in for a estimate and could have used them, but something didn’t feel right. I qualified for the program and ended up getting a rebate as well which was great. Sam from Golden was so detailed with the steps we would need to take and the level of quality they would provide. All the workers showed up on time and the boss came in and checked up on them as well. So happy with the results and the outcome. Will use them for the future.

Sam with Golden Retrofit Call and foundation repair helped us save a lot of money with his expert knowledge of how to deal with a leveling issue we were having. While other companies were quoting us sky high prices and excessive work that we did not really need. Sam was able to come in 25% cheaper and do top quality work. We could not be happier with our choice and think very highly of their company. From the office staff to the employees everybody seems to be happy working there. And I think it shows with the quality of their work. Great job Golden Retrofit.

First of all, I couldn’t be happier with Experience I had with Golden Retrofit Call and foundation repair. I decided to do an earthquake retrofit and turn to Yelp to look for the right company for the job. I got a couple estimates and Golden came in the middle price-wise but definitely at the top for their service, professionalism, and communication. Sam was the tech that came out and made the whole process a breeze. The Retrofit only took one day but now I have the peace of mind that my home is up to code. Golden Retrofit is definitely a five star company.

Joey booked the appointment. From there, Ross came to give me the estimate for my foundation. We had 1 estimate done beforehand and wasn’t too fond of the company. They were here for about one hour and a half looking at some of the cracks we had in the wall. They sent over a detailed and written estimate…the other company didn’t and was here for 10 minutes. It took about 2 weeks to do. Glad we hired them over the other companies. They clearly know what they are doing!!

Through a friend I was able to get in touch with a worker by the name of Ross. He treated me and my family amazing. He came in personally, even though he didn’t have too, to help me with my issue. Needed a foundation repair and fixed it a couple weeks ago with Golden Retrofit. Ross is great, fast responses, polite, prompt, and so much more. You will experience it, if you end up going with Golden Retrofit and asking for Ross.

We recently had a home inspection done and one of the issues he pointed out was some sagging in the floor in the corner of the home. I asked him if he had anyone to refer and he gave me a list of three companies. After getting estimates from all three we felt most comfortable with Golden retrofit. It was a complicated job according to Ross. He explained the process and it went smooth from beginning to end. I’m very happy with my choice and recommend them to everyone.

A close friend of mine recently had a seismic retrofit done at her home that brought it to my attention and I began to look into what it was about. I ended up doing some research on my home and found out that it wasn’t up to code to today’s standards. I decided to have a couple companies come out and give me an estimate. It was between two companies but ultimately I went with Golden Retrofit and Foundation repair. I am happy with the decision and have absolutely no complaints. The work was done on time and they did as they promised. If you’re looking for a company to do your foundation repair. Go with Golden.

Going with Golden Retrofit for our leveling issue was an easy choice. They just seem like they know exactly what they’re doing. Ross was the only person that showed up at the time he said he would and to me that’s very important. When shopping around and doing my due diligence I realized that Ross was exactly the type of contractor there aren’t enough of. The job cost a pretty penny but unfortunately it’s a necessary thing. Golden Retrofit made it as smooth and painless as they possibly could.

Ross from Golden Retrofit and foundation repair is easily the best representative of the company I’ve dealt with. He Goes above and beyond To make sure we are comfortable with the process as well as what we were to expect. We had a seismic retrofit done and I did quite a bit of research. He was spot on with his explanation as well as Help does apply for earthquake insurance since we got the discount. Golden Retrofit is a high-quality company that you will not regret it

Ross came out to give me a quote for a brace and bolt program. Through yelp, I was able to see that I can sign up for this program and save money. They were all so nice and great to work with. For a couple a weeks, I was able to see their team work and effort they put into their jobs. Thank you!!

Joey has been really helpful. So appreciative and glad he’s part of the company. I called Golden retrofit for a quote on earthquake retrofitting and am so happy with the results. They were great in implementing the brace and bolt program and requesting I do it. Other companies I went too never mentioned that. Thank you for saving me money and being a great and honest team.

After tons of research I did on earthquake retrofitting, I decided to look at some yelp reviews as well. I chose golden retrofit because of their large amount of great reviews and their clear record of great service they have. But once I called and got to know the team and see who runs the show…I realized why they have such positive feedback! We did the brace and bolt program and went ahead with the process and BOOM. Within 2 weeks…. the job was done with and finished! Thank you again!

About Golden Retrofit and Foundation Repair

Foundation repair by golden retrofit Los Angeles

Our hope is that we never have to endure the next “big one”. As time goes by and more research is available, listening to mainstream media often feels like impending doom is around the corner. Geologists differ in opinion on when and how powerful the next earthquake will be. They all agree that one is inevitable living in Southern California. We are here to give you and your family the peace of mind that if one does come, you will be prepared. Seismic retrofit is the step we should all consider. Studies show that modifying/reinforcing an existing structure will help withstand the powerful forces generated by an earthquake. Using specially designed steel brackets and anchors will tie your home/apartment to its concrete foundation properly. The proper installation of hardware at the correct locations under your home will allow the structure to have a much better chance of making it through an earthquake with minimal damage
