The time it takes to retrofit a Soft Story building will of course depend on a variety of factors, for example how many reinforcing structures must be built, how easy is access to the building from the street, whether or not concealed and/or unforeseen site conditions are encountered (e.g., concrete footing underground which must be broken up), the weather, how quickly the custom steel is prepared, etc.). Some Soft Story retrofitting jobs may take as few as five working days, and others may take a few additional working days or even weeks. Before we begin the retrofitting job, we will give you a rough estimate about how long it will take. We know how important your time is and always try to do the best job in as little time as possible.
