2024 Earthquake Brace and Bolt Program Reviews

Very happy with the work by Weinstein! Jonathan promptly came over to give an estimate and explain the process to us, pricing was competitive. Angela in the office was tremendously helpful throughout the entire process, answered every question, kept us updated and helped us with the paperwork along the way. The project itself was completed very soon after we received EBB approval and the crew worked quickly and cleaned up after themselves. Would recommend Weinstein to others for an EBB retrofit!


The nicest contractors I’ve had the pleasure of working with in LA. Very communicative, understood the EBB process, efficient project management and actual work, and cleaned up after themselves. Weinstein made it painless.


We contacted Weinstein construction for an estimate and 2 other contractors . The young man that came out for an inspection was very professional . The estimate we received was a bit higher than the other contractors . we chose Weinstein because of our initial contact with the company . Most of our contact with the company after that was with Angela , she was extremely helpful with the process . The crew that performed the work were top notch and completed the job in one day . Scott took care of the final inspection with the city and everything passed with out a problem and submitted everything to EBB their approval with positive results. This is an A+++ company.

I used Weinstein Construction to do my earthquake retrofit and they were excellent. They took care of everything and were really easy to work with. Shout out to Angela their office manager who was super helpful. Definitely recommend them.


Excellent contractor. Very professional. I would definitely recommend them.


Weinstein Construction was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Easy to contact, schedule, and responsive through whole project. Jonathan did the assessment, Herardo’s team did the retro-fit, Scott was here for the inspection, and Angela was our main point of contact in the office. All really wonderful people to work with. I recommend them highly.


Weinstein Construction did a fabulous job on our EBB foundation work. They are the most professional contractor I have worked with. I recommend them very strongly.


Outstanding service and communication throughout the process.


After much research, we selected Weinstein Construction to complete our earthquake Brace and Bolt program. This was an Outstanding choice in contractors. From the initial contact, the pre-retrofit, the installation itself, and finally the post-retrofit, each person handled their tasks in a professional, personable and extremely competent manner. High accolades to Angela (Client Relations Director) as her efforts were nothing less than exceptional.


We highly recommend Weinstein Construction Corp. for your retrofitting needs. We had excellent customer service from beginning to end and they made the entire process very easy for us. The employees we worked with are friendly and professional. Thank you Weinstein Construction for your excellent service.


These guys are great! They did an excellent job, they were very helpful in every aspect, with professionalism. And the best part their price was the best. They even did some extra work that other contractors were going to charge for it. Weinstein Corporation has a great personnel.


Had a great experience working with the whole Weinstein Construction team (from the field workers to the office administrators)! Highly knowledgeable, professional, respectful & patience. Process was very easy and they were guiding me from start to the finish. Replying to e-mails & returning phone call promptly. Initially gave a higher quote but then was willing to lower the price to match the competitor quote. Highly recommend!!!


Our family has worked with WCC on two separate occasions at two different properties. Our experience with them has been positive both times. They are professional, timely, communicate well, and are transparent with regard to where you are in the process and how much everything will cost. The staff were helpful in assisting us with navigation of the website and, in general, took the time to explain what we could expect and what they needed from us. We highly recommend Weinstein Construction Corporation.


Response from first call to guidance through the process has been excellent. The final inspection by the city complimented the quality of work. I feel fortunate to have selected this contractor.


The Earthquake Brace & Bolt program provides a list of contractors that homeowners can hire. After interviewing contractors, I chose the Weinstein Construction company. Yes, I made the right decision. Their crew was professional and on time, and they cleaned up after the project was completed. And yes, the inspector from the City of LA approved the retrofit. The Weinstein Construction company is reliable, affordable, and professional.


I chose Weinstein Construction Corp. based on the testimonial given by one of their customers. I didn’t make a mistake. Since day one, they’ve shown professionalism: answering phone calls, punctuality with regard to scheduled work, willingness to answer questions and assisting their customers in completing the needed documents for the project.


From initial inquiries, to help understanding and filling out the FEMA/CA forms, to the inspection of the crawl-space under the house, to the day the work was done, everyone has been professional, helpful, and engaging. This has been one of my best experiences working with a company on a project, and I am 79 years old! I want in particular to highlight the work of the Administrative Assistant, Angela, who went beyond the call of duty to help a non-techy, old lady with palsy, get through the process of applying, and who handled all the paperwork throughout the process. Angela was truly heaven sent! Always available, kind, and thorough in work and responses, I knew throughout the 8-month process that I was in very good hands. 5-stars-plus!!! I am so grateful a friend who had used the Weinstein Construction Company recommended them to me.


From start to finish is was a pleasure dealing with Weinstein Construction. Angela was the point of contact on the telephone and always kept me updated the entire time. The job was done as described and my house passed the inspection.


The Weinstein Construction Corp provided excellent service with my home. From initial communication to the last, they explained what they would be doing and showed on time for each phase.  They were courteous and did a great job.


Our experience with Weinstein Construction was exceptional! From the very start the team was very professional and Angela made the process so easy step by step. Any questions we had were handled quickly and efficiently. Would definitely recommend Weinstein Construction for EBB process to anyone! Great Job!!!


Weinstein Corp. is an experienced and very professional contractor. They were easy to deal with and easy to communicate with when needed. They were referred to me by previous customers. I have referred then to my family and they have also had the earthquake retrofit work done by Weinstein. I recommend them completely.


Weinstein construction was on top of everything, they communicate wonderfully, and are quite professional! I would recommend them to anyone in need of the services they provide!


Staff at Weinstein Construction have been very professional and extremely helpful with this process and I highly recommend them to any potential clients.


From the very first visit by Weinstein Construction I was pleased with the way the steps of the project were presented to me.


Has done a good job with everything so far.  Contractor has been very attentive and helpful so far.


Additional Past Earthquake Brace and Bolt Program Reviews

My experience With Weinstein Construction was excellent. Everyone who worked on our project did a great job. Angela helped me through everything I needed. I had previously gotten a quote from another contractor. That quote was $2,000 higher and their office did not have a clue about EBB even though they were on the approved list.


The best contractor I have ever dealt with. Guided me through every step Angela was priceless Thanks Dave


They were great Nice people, neat and clean and did a good job.


Good communicators, fast workers, very considerate, helpful & thorough — I highly recommend Weinstein Construction Corp.


Weinstein Construction were a pleasure to work with; completed all aspects of the job as they said they would do; were on time; and came in at the best price of any contractors we checked with. Other than some registration we had to do, they took care of all the “paperwork.” Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. We received funds from the EBB to be used for the brace and bolting, and we only paid a few hundred dollars more than the state grant. I highly recommend Weinstein Construction.

From beginning to end, Weinstein Construction handled all the paperwork, kept me informed, treated me with respect and did a great job. I would recommend them without reservation.
Very much enjoyed working with Weinstein Construction. They were great at jumping through all the bureaucratic hoops and did a nice job on the foundation. Five stars
Their price was incredible. they are very helpful and professional . i passed the inspection.
Extremely good experience with Weinstein Construction Co. They were efficient, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. They made it very easy and I highly recommend them.
Fabulous! Just fabulous! In every respect, quote, performance, timeliness, easy to work with, pleasant, professional, everything! If I had another house I would have them do the work. Michael (Valley Glen)
As a retired/aging construction professional I had considered retrofitting my house myself. Fortunately, I decided to engage Weinstein Construction to do it instead. They have been specializing in retrofitting since the 1970’s and are extremely knowledgeable with the construction requirements, the quality of the work was excellent, as was the processing of all the paper work. Every contact with a person from Weinstein was pleasant, productive and handled with courtesy. I HIGHLY recommend them.
Weinstein Construction Corp. was top notch! From the estimate process to installation to final inspection, was a breeze. Angela really made the process easy. Installation crew was great as well. Showed up on time. Ended on time. And always cleaned up after themselves.
They were professional and very helpful. They walked me through the necessary steps. They know what they’re doing. Angela & Rose made the process easy.
Very smooth from start to finish. Everyone is responsive. They always answer the phone or call back promptly. They know the EBB process very well and took care of that.
I chose Weinstein as I knew they had been in the retrofit industry for years. It seemed others had just begun to do the work in response to the California Retrofit program. I’m happy I made that choice. The work progressed quickly and was quickly approved. The supervisor was exceptional, even being sensitive to my neighbor’s CONTINUAL grumpy moods. The neighbor never got a chance to complain. If I had it to do over, I would choose Weinstein again
I highly recommend this company. I’ve done business with several contracting companies recently for various home improvement projects and working with Weinstein Construction Corp. was by far the most pleasant experience of them all. Their communication with me, from initial consultation to project completion, was excellent (a special shout out to Angela and Jared!). The work proceeded as expected and they made a genuine effort to complete the project to my absolute satisfaction.
Danny was very thorough when he did the initial inspection and estimate. He actually changed clothes and went inside the crawl space eventhough it was not guaranteed that I was hiring his company. He explained the job needed for the retrofit and the process of acquiring the permit. The job was done in less than a day. Angela was very helpful with the EBB paperwork. I got approval from EBB and waiting for reimbursement.
Our experience with Weinstein was excellent from beginning to end. Weinstein demonstrated that it is an organization committed to providing great customer service and a high quality work product every step of the way. Every employee, from the office staff to those who did the construction work, was friendly, professional, and competent. They did exactly what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, every time!

Quick service and high quality work. We have recommended them to several friends.


Weinstein Construction was everything you want from a Construction Company. From beginning to end every one was super professional. The crew that was under the house to the supervisor who was present when the inspector came to sign off on the work. A super shout out to Angela for her patience and kindness with every interaction over the phone. Thank you


Weinstein Construction made navigating the EBB process a breeze. They were helpful and on-schedule every step of the way.


Weinstein Construction Corp did an excellent job on retrofitting my house. They were referred to me by two of my friends who used them.


Weinstein Construction completed the retrofit in one day with 3 workers who did a great job. The entire process was handled beautifully by Angela in their office and they even had a rep meet the city inspector to check the job. Everything was done very professionally and I am very happy with the outcome.

I HIGHLY recommend Weinstein Construction Corp. They came in with a very reasonable bid and were excellent to work with and completed all of the work on time and on budget. How often does that happen with other contractors? I mostly dealt with the office manager, Angela, who was great to work with and handled getting and uploading all of the pictures, permits and documents onto the EBB website so there was very little that I needed to do. It’s the only contractor I’ve ever used where everyone showed up exactly when they said they would. When they came to do the retrofit they actually arrived early and set up in the driveway so they were ready to start work right when scheduled, and they finished right on time as well. Steve, the project manager, arrived a half hour before the window when the city inspector was scheduled to make sure everything went smoothly and it did, just like the whole project. All of the work was completed exactly on schedule and on budget and everyone was great to work. You would be making a mistake if you didn’t hire Weinstein Construction to do your project. I’ll hire them for anything else I do!
There are not enough words to express my satisfaction. Let me simply state that Weinstein Construction is the best value and does top notch work! Everyone that I had contact with did a superb job. I would recommend them to anyone looking for value, professionalism and a superb installation.
They are extremely easy to work with, very efficient, timely, and organized. i would highly recommend them.
Weistein Construction was professional, responds quickly. Angela is amazing and was on top of updating the Earthquake Brace & Bolt Porto. I highly recommend them.
Weinstein Construction Corp was so easy to work with and their bid and we have accepted their bid.
From first contact to last approval, Weinstein Construction was excellent. Every detail of my job was handled seamlessly and efficiently. Every Weinstein employee I interacted with was friendly and professional. Never has a construction project been so easy. I highly recommend Weinstein Construction.
Very professional and efficient a true partner in this project. Courteous, clean and cooperative. I give them my highest recommendation. Tim Murphy
Weinstein Construction performed the earthquake retrofitting for my home. It is a very professional company. Angela handled all of the administrative issues wonderfully and the retrofit installers were excellent The company handled the permit process with the City of Burbank. I would recommend this company.
Great Brace and Bolt experience. Truly the most professional and most competitive bid from all the contractors in my area.
Very happy with their performance, accuracy, timing, and very friendly people. Would recommend to any homeowner looking to retrofit their home.
The Weinstein Construction people were very polite, informative, and well-versed in seismic brace and bolt retrofitting. The estimate was reasonable. Angela, the office manager was very supportive of any concerns I had. She made sure that all requirements to complete the program were addressed. The construction crew showed up on time and was very thorough. A company representative was there to meet with the city inspector at the conclusion of the project. I highly recommend this contractor.
We would like to thank the Weinstein Contructruction Company sincerely and wholeheatedly for their support, advice and general guidance. Especially to Angela! Angela was extremely helpful, kind and an all round great gal. Without her assistance we would have had a much harder time making it through the EBB program. We highly recommend Weistein Construction for your home’s retro fitting. Every phase of the job was professional and conducted in a timely manner. Sincerely, Rosalind Ferrini

Weinstein Construction | Los Angeles Foundation Repair was terrific to work with every step of the way. I was referred by a trusted neighbor who highly recommended them. All of the individuals who assisted me worked to ensure that I understood all of the steps involved to utilize the city EBB Boot and Brace Program. Angela was extremely helpful in navigating this lengthy process. Most importantly, crew members Luis and Hugo were well-prepared, respectful and meticulous in carrying out the work. It’s great to work with a family run company that offers this kind of satisfying home improvement experience.


Professionalism from start to finish. I sought a total of 4 bids for this project and each contractor confirmed that my access point was too small (it was also blocked by gas lines). One contractor bowed out of the bid process altogether; another wanted to add an additional access point on the opposite side of house (total bid that was almost $6k!), and another wanted to dismantle an Ikea closet system to use an access point in a bedroom closet, thereby working from INSIDE the house). Weinstein Corp. was the only one that looked at the problem and said, “Let’s just make the existing access point bigger.” Eureka! (And so simple.) The work was done on time, and every person I encountered was friendly and professional. Once awarded the job Weinstein also handled all the EBB ‘paperwork’ from start to finish (and let me know any time there was action I needed to take in the portal). Huge thanks to Jonathan, Steve, Angela and the rest of the team for letting me know I was in good hands every step of the way.


Weinstein did an excellent job. Highly recommend. They are very organized, knowledgeable and made the process very easy for me. Everything went very smoothly and in a short timeframe.


The people from Weinstein were very professional and the job was completed with dispatch.


Weinstein construction was outstanding. They took care of everything. Angela was amazing. I highly recommend them. They were absolutely reliable.

This has been one of the best experiences I’ve ever had… they took care of everything! Professional and timely I can’t say enough about this company. Thank you for all your help!
Weinstein was excellent and timely. Very quickly after I contacted them, their inspector did a thorough inspection of my crawl space and took the necessary photos. I received the estimate very quickly. It was fair and complete, and I authorized them to proceed. Their crew arrived early and completed all work on schedule. They took good COVID protections. A Weinstein inspector arrived one week later, waited for the LA City inspector, and explained the inspection process to me. The city approved the work that day. Weinstein completed the required paperwork which I sent to my insurance company. I have already received a check for an 18 percent earthquake insurance premium reduction. Thank you Weinstein.
They are very professional,keep you informed, walk you thru everything.A WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM.
We chose Weinstein Construction because previous reviewers indicated that Weinstein did a good job and made the whole process very easy for the homeowner and they were 100% correct. It was speedy and without any problems. I want to especially commend office manager Angela. She is so nice, helpful and efficient. She even Facetimed me so she could see my screen and guide me through the electronic signature process.
Weinstein Construction were competitively priced, did a great job, and took care of everything.
Weinstein Construction top notch company to work with they did all the paper work pictures and so forth.why pick a small company with limited resources when you can choose this company. large company with many workers who know here business.
Did all the work in a professional and timely matter. Highly recommended.
My experience with Weinstein construction was very good. They were instrumental from start to finish. I certainly would recommend this company.
I can recommend Weinstein Construction Corp. The LA inspector said their work was better than others he had seen. They are experienced in retrofitting foundations and not fly by nights who try to take advantage of FEMA and unsuspecting homeowners. Angela was very helpful in guiding through FEMA’s many requirements. Also recommend checking that FEMA pay homeowner, then homeowner pay Weinstein Construction Corp.
I strongly recommend Weinstein Construction for foundation, drainage, or retrofitting. Their prices are highly competitive, and they are reliable and very competent. The office staff was responsive to questions and requests. Of particular importance, they understand the EBB process and submitted all photos and documents in a timely manner.
Very good experience. Their office and field people are responsive, prompt, thorough, helpful. I got two bids and went with Weinstein because theirs was more reasonable. They walked me through the EBB process and were always very pleasant to work with.
Very easy to work with. They communicated with me on every step of the process and I would highly recommend them for anyone who is going to do a brace & bolt on their home.
