Los Angeles, California Residential Repair Specialists

Weinstein Construction is a family-owned and operated business with over 45 years of experience in California and the Los Angeles area and we are located right in the heart of “Earthquake Country,” the San Fernando Valley! Established in 1977 by its owner and president, Itzcik Weinstein, who himself is a local homeowner, as well as husband, father, and a general contractor to residents of the greater Los Angeles region.

As a homeowner in the City of Los Angeles, especially one that is 60 or more years old, you may already know that your home’s foundation may have structural problems. Such foundation problems are especially common in homes that were built during the building boom of the 1950s and 60s. The issues that plague foundations include expanding soil under the home, year-after-year of rainy seasons followed up by bone-dry seasons, as well as the test of frequent earthquakes. The foundations of such 1960s and older homes are especially vulnerable and can threaten the structure’s safety. Your foundation may be in serious trouble, especially if your home’s floors are sagging or sloping, or if your ceilings, walls, or floors are leaning or cracking! One thing is certain, and that’s the longer you wait to fix a cracking foundation, the worse it will get, and the worse it will get, the more expensive it will be to fix!

Weinstein construction’s foundation repairing professionals are experts at helping homeowners diagnose and resolve foundation issues! We always work with homeowners to find the best and most affordable methods for Los Angeles foundation repair! And yes, occasionally, a severely-damaged foundation can’t be adequately or cost-effectively repaired, but in such rare instances, we can replace a damaged foundation while you and your family are still living at the home!

Mold, mildew, fungus, and rot, what do they all have in common? They have all become the subject of nightmares for some unlucky homeowners in Los Angeles! The problem is very simple, which is to say that the organic matter that our homes our made out of (e.g., plywood, fiberboard, chipboard, and framing lumber), when exposed to warm, humid air, provide a perfect environment for mold, mildew, and fungus to grow. This situation is especially damaging when it is happening inside a home’s dirt-lined crawl space, which is that shallow area underneath the home’s first floor. In a word: whatever happens inside the crawl space, gets breathed in by everyone who lives in the home!

Los Angeles homeowners can do something about this situation. There’s an easy fix! Weinstein Construction’s crawl space specialists have been designing and installing innovative and affordable crawl space systems since 1977! All our Los Angeles crawl space systems are tailored to our clients’ needs!

Inspection Form - Services

"*" indicates required fields

Owners of hundreds of “Soft Story” commercial and residential properties in Los Angeles already know that they have an urgent need to retrofit their buildings to safeguard them from the destructive forces of earthquakes.

Such buildings in Los Angeles are required to be retrofitted to city codes, as they can be horrifically damaged from by seismic activity. The City of Los Angeles has already identified 13,500 buildings vulnerable to structural failure both during and after an earthquake. This program requires the owners of these buildings to comply with mandatory City Ordinance 183893 and Ordinance 184081 and retrofit the buildings within a specific time frame. Those buildings that were deemed most vulnerable have the following attributes:

  • Consist of two or more stories of wood frame construction
  • Built under code standards enacted before January 1, 1978 and
  • Contain ground floor parking or other similar open floor spaces

To verify if your Los Angeles building is within the scope of the mandatory Los Angeles Soft Story Retrofit Program, you can check on the LADBS website.

Many property owners in Los Angeles have already heard about the State of California’s two mandatory “Balcony Inspection Laws”, SB 326 and SB 721.

Property owners in Los Angeles must act now, and have their building inspected as early as possible, to have more flexibility in scheduling the inspections, and so that inspections (and remediation of issues, if required) costs less!  The closer we get to the deadline, the harder it will be to schedule an inspection and the more it will cost!

Los Angeles Balcony repair is a critical aspect for many properties here in California. Without regular balcony repair and inspections, a balcony’s lifespan can be greatly reduced due to the wear and tear from the harsh weather and natural elements. Fortunately, professional balcony repair is available with Weinstein Construction. When our team comes to assess, they take extra care to make sure that your balcony looks great afterwards and lasts for years to come.

Jack Dunbar Weinstein Construction Review 2

Weinstein Construction redid my foundation and retaining wall and I’m very happy with the work!

Mr. Allen
Donald Borg Weinstein Construction Review

We had our basement retrofitted. Very courteous to us, very attentive. I was very impressed with the people who came to do the job. They were polite, well dressed, and really seemed to know what they were doing. We feel a lot safer now than we would have otherwise.

Donald Borg

We had used Weinstein to earthquake retrofit our house. First, my intention was to do it myself, but we got a very nice sales rep over and he went through the whole procedure and by putting a thought into I concluded that it was not worth it for me to spend 14 days under the house. They came out, a top professional crew, they did it in a day, and we really loved what they did.

Yorkin Schwar

We are pleased with the results. The people were on time, they were neat, clean, and even the “big boss” was very nice and accommodating, so we’re happy with the services.

Tom and Judy Fogle

I was very happy. Very clean job. Very satisfied, and I recommend it to everybody.

Eddie Levin

We had our house retrofitted. Immediately we noticed the stability of it, even when we walked the house. Now it’s so much better and it’s stabilized, we’re very confident. It went very well and we’re very pleased.
