About Golden Retrofit

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

What Client Says

awards Daniel F. Valley Glen, CA I had a good experience with Golden Retrofit. They recently reinforced our foundation to make it more earthquake resistant. Everyone I dealt with was professional and responsive. Joey spent a lot of time with me explaining and helping me understand what exactly they were doing. They spent alot of time going over the project and getting it right. I had several estimates for the work and found their bid to be competitive. Work was done quickly and correctly. I'd definitely use them again.
awards Daniella K. Los Angeles, CA They were so great my mom made me write this review. We hired Golden Retrofit to raise a sunken portion of our patio. Marc and his assistant worked much longer than they had originally estimated because the void underneath the patio was larger than expected. It was very clear that their goal was to do the best job possible. The result was as good as it could have been. They were careful not to damage the surrounding landscape and they cleaned up well. The cost was reasonable. Communication from the main office was excellent as well. Would use them again in a heartbeat. We are currently considering earthquake retrofitting of our house. If we do we will certainly be using Golden Retrofit. Thanks Joey!
awards Roy R. Burbank, CA Joey and his staff at Golden Retrofit have done a number of seismic-strengthening jobs for friends of ours. They have always been on time and on budget. Over the years, various building inspectors and other professionals have seen their work, often long after its completion. They uniformly say that the Joey's work is well done. Last month Marc and a crew upgraded the foundation work at my home. As usual they did the job very well at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.
