Palms, California Services

Palms, California Residential Repair Specialists

Weinstein Construction is a family-owned and operated business with over 45 years of experience in California and the Palms 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.

For most homeowners in Palms, their home is their most valuable investment, and still many homeowners remain unaware that their homes were built on shifting soil that doesn’t fare well under our frequent dry-then-rainy seasons, or our frequent earthquake activity. Homeowners in Palms, especially those living in homes built 60+ years ago, must remain vigilant and determine periodically whether or not the foundation under their valuable property is still in good shape. This is one area where an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and where a homeowner can stop small issues from becoming large ones!

And even if your foundation is damaged, you can get it repaired fairly easily if the damage is not too extensive. For example, cracks in your foundation that measure up to .25 inches can be filled with epoxy that binds the two foundation sections together. Moreover, steel rods can be anchored in place, and then reinforced with new concrete. Weinstein Construction’s Palms foundation repairing professionals have a solution to fit every budget!

Did you know that the air you breathe inside your home could be coming from a damp, dirty crawl space? This often-overlooked area beneath your first floor can harbor mold, mildew, and other harmful contaminants. Over time, these pollutants can migrate upwards, affecting your family’s health and your home’s air quality.

Don’t let your crawl space become a breeding ground for unwanted guests. Weinstein Construction can transform your Palms crawl space into a clean, dry, and healthy environment with our crawl space encapsulation system. We install a durable vapor barrier to seal out moisture and pests, and an Energy Star-rated dehumidifier to maintain optimal humidity levels. Our anti-bacterial materials provide an extra layer of protection for your home and family.

Breathe easier knowing your home’s air is clean and fresh. Contact Weinstein Construction, your local crawl space encapsulation specialist in Palms, to learn more and schedule a consultation.

In Palms, owners of commercial or multi-family residential properties are aware that such “Soft Story” buildings are often too weak to withstand the forces of a strong earthquake. This is because such buildings consist of 2 or more stories wood frame construction and were built under building code standards enacted before 1978.

Palms Soft Story Retrofit is an important seismic strengthening project that can provide many benefits where earthquakes are a real danger. This service strengthens your property’s weak points and increases its ability to resist the lateral forces damage caused by earth quakes and heavy winds. It also enhances overall safety by decreasing hazards, such as falling debris or shifting furniture. By strengthening  Soft Stories in Palms properties, one can ensure that the underlying structure remains safe and sound during extreme weather events or similar event were to occur.

Palms property owners must take note of two state laws that mandate safety inspections for buildings that: (i) have three or more units; (ii) have “Exterior Elevated Elements” (EEE’s) such as wood, or wood-based exterior balconies, decks, porches, stairways, walkways, entry structures, or other exterior elements with walking surfaces; and (iii) have EEE’s that are six or more feet off the ground.

These Palms Balcony Inspection Laws (California SB 721 and SB 326) have a compliance deadline of January 1, 2025, to complete the first inspection of the building.

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.
