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

We had excellent experience with Alpha Structural. Charlie Rosenkranz came to see the property and advice. He checked the structures all around and looked in the basement as far as possible beyond the ducts that were filling up the space and would require tunneling to get to some areas under the building. Communication was excellent. He's knowledgeable and experienced. We appreciated his professional no pressure approach and answering our questions. The front main duplex needed Seismic Retrofit; it wasn't bolted and had cripple walls. There were suspect areas in the foundations that would have to be tested when bolting, to see if the concrete is in good shape. After we agreed to their proposal have the work done we scheduled a range date. They had to submit to the city plans for a permit to do the work and wait for the permit to be issued. While doing the retrofit we found out that the foundation in the front corner was damaged and that the building has sunken and was not level at that corner. Charlie worked out the details and bid for the additional work of Partial Foundation Replacement, Posts/piers, and Jack Lift the corner to level it. He explained the details and what's involved to my satisfaction. Alpha obtained the permit for the work and proceeded. The work crew did excellent work. Jose Morales was the Project Supervisor. They completed the work at a good pace, including the delay for the additional work permit, without complications or complaints from the neighbors. The place was left clean. The work was approved in the inspection which they requested and scheduled with the city. The communication with everyone at the office was also very good. We're very pleased with the experience

Alpha was professional and efficient in getting our earthquake retrofit done and they knew how to work with the earthquake brace+bolt program smoothly. We were very pleased with their work and would recommend them.

Brad Nestler of Alpha Structural came to our house on time and was very courteous and professional throughout the whole process. He gave us good tips on keeping the foundation sound and also did a thorough check of the foundation. We didn't go with them due to budget issues but would keep them in mind for major repairs
Alpha Structural, Inc.
They gave me a reasonable estimate. They were timely in performing the work. They did a good job. They did an effective job but what I didn’t know is what kind of wood they would use for the timbers. I should have asked at the time but I ended up having to call a pest control company to spray the new beams with the termite fighting substance because the wood is not as hard as what was originally there. There was that little side affect, I wished I had asked them. They probably would have told me that the beams were standard, strong and would perform the function. They should have just given me a heads up about protecting it from termites, I don’t know. I was really satisfied with what they did. The workers were very straightforward, very good. So, that’s my only caution. Maybe that’s just standard in the industry; I just never reinforced foundations before. They were terrific. They were good, it is just that one caution, and I wish I had asked. That’s my fault. I didn’t get other bids but I thought their price was reasonable. They were very responsive. We told them time was critical and they got here very quickly. Their professionalism was good. I don’t recall any problems with them not being punctual

1) Charlie came out for an inspection and was thoughtful, knowledgeable, and had solutions and ideas on the spot. 2) The bid was reasonable and comprehensive. 3) The office and admin customer service follow up was fantastic. 4) They commenced work when we wanted to them to and worked super efficiently. 5) They finished well ahead of schedule, saved us thousands of dollars in landscape and tile repair, and met and exceeded our performance expectations. 6) The work looks great, the attention to detail evident, and we feel secure in our new vintage home. 7) Charlie was ALWAYS available to answer any questions we had -- and we had a lot. He knew how important this was to us and even though this job was on smaller end of the spectrum for them, they put their best teams to work on it. We appreciated that. 8) Mario, their head crew leader was awesome. He ran a tight ship. Thanks for a job well done

I couldn't be happier. The inspectors, Brad and Matt, were very professional. They did a drawing of the perimeter of my home. They spent a good deal of time under my house. They told me that my house is actually bolted. Some of the bolting is up to code and some is old, but bolted. I was so relieved since I got a quote from another contractor for thousands of dollars to bolt. I am so grateful to find an honest company. Thank you Alpha Structural, Inc.

The mark of a good company is not how they handle things when everything goes right, but how they handle things when things go wrong. I live in a 100 year old house, and old houses have surprises. On two occasions, my house gave Alpha a little more than they were expecting, and both times, they stepped up and proved why they have the reputation they do. The first time, the footing under my kitchen was undermined, and they intended to put two concrete pads in to fix it. When they realized their initial plans to fix it weren't quite sufficient, they brought out one of their in house engineers, and they built Fort Knox (in a good way) under the kitchen. The kitchen of my house is probably the most secure part of my house now. It will survive the Apocalypse. Then, they were contracted to fix the the stairs in the back of my property. The side of the stairs was separating from the stairs themselves, and Alpha was contracted to replace the wall. But when they removed it, they found the the old stairs there were just a thin layer of concrete over loose rock, which spilled out undermining them. It's something they never could have seen or known from the outside. Mark, one of the bosses of the company came out and looked at it, and had them replace the entire stairs, which now look amazing and are very safe for my children. I also can't say enough how on top of it the people were. Dieter, their supervisor, was amazing. He stopped by frequently to make sure everything was on track and up to standards. You'd hear him pulling up on his motorcycle, and if you had questions, he'd talk through everything that was going on with you. (And be very patient with you about the questions.) When there were job hiccups, he just let me know that they had it under control and was unflappable. He always told me things were going to be fine, and then took care of it. His crews were professional, considerate, hard working, and polite. If you get any of the guys I had, you're in good hands: -Oscar and Marlon did an amazing job on the kitchen underpinning, bolting, and sheerwalling my basement. -Gregorio, Jonathan, and Henry were excellent, and replaced my stairs. (And Gregorio, in particular, is an artist with cement.) Both crews made me realize how consistently good the quality of the work done by this company is. I highly recommend Alpha, especially if you work with any of these crews

I emailed the contact email listed and received a response within the hour. I asked for an estimate/evaluation of my foundation due to upcoming upgrades required on my carriage house second unit in West Hollywood. The office very efficiently set up an appointment then called back to confirm the time and give me the owners cell phone number. Dave showed up on time, evaluated my 1916 unit, told me all was in fine condition and gave me a worst case senario (only if the city went over the top ) of an earthquake retrofit. This is a family company and the owner and his family members were a delight and genuine. Mr. Dave did not charge me for the estimate. Because I researched the company's background prior to contacting them, and not because anything was said, I found out the association to the art side of a structural engineer (the Choinard Foundation which benefits arts for children in the Pasadena area). A good businessman and responsible civic person

"I worked with Design Everest (Josh) when I needed to bring to code some unpermitted work on my home that had been altered prior to 1978. Design Everest was prompt to supply drawings of the structural work required. When my contractor found existing conditions that called for the engineers to review their plan, DE was very quick to review those existing conditions, change the plans and write cover letters (twice) to the City inspectors describing and confirming 'as built conditions' met code were sufficient from the original build. I am very happy with the end result, and although I questioned the cost of their bid at the onsite, I believe that what was discovered during construction and with the changes made, the cost turned out to be worth it the expense. I highly recommend using this firm.

"After the last few earthquakes that we’ve experienced I realized it’s important to ensure that my homes foundation is in good condition. Our home was built in the 40s and hasn’t had any work done on since. I contacted a few different companies and decided to go with golden retrofit because of their honesty and diligence. David came to our house to give the estimate and aside from it being the most reasonable one I also had an affinity towards him which inclined me to choose them even more. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a similar service. Thank you David and golden retrofit!!!

"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++
