Rancho Palos Verdes, California Services

Rancho Palos Verdes, California Residential Repair Specialists

Weinstein Construction is a family-owned and operated business with over 45 years of experience in California and the Rancho Palos Verdes 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 Rancho Palos Verdes, 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!

Fortunately, Weinstein construction’s foundation repairing professionals are experts at helping Rancho Palos Verdes homeowners diagnose and resolve foundation issues! We always work with homeowners to find the best and most affordable methods for 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!

Rancho Palos Verdes Crawl Space repair is an important part of home maintenance. Our expert teams at Weinstein Construction assess any potential risks early on and develop a plan to keep the crawl space clean. Not only does crawl space repair help avoid more serious problems such as foundation failure or water damage, it also keeps air quality regulated for improved comfort within your home.

This is because the crawl space’s ground temperature typically hovers around 55 degrees year-round, and so when the area is vented to the outside, warm, humid air spills inside, raising the air’s relative humidity. And when the relative humidity of the air inside of a home goes up, it takes longer to heat or cool the home, which in turn increases energy costs!

Crawl space repair is an important service. As Rancho Palos Verdes crawl space professionals, Weinstein Construction is here to help correct any water or drainage issues, and prevent long-term water damage, wood rot, and other types of structural damage from developing in the crawl space area. This service can also reduce energy costs by improving insulation in the affected area, as well as reduce foul odors associated with air seepage and mold growth.

Weinstein Construction specialists can install a Rancho Palos Verdes crawl space encapsulation system which covers vents, includes an efficient dehumidifier, and lines the entire crawl space with a layer of durable polyethylene which seals and protects the area from moisture and assault by mold, mildew, fungus, and dying critters!

Earthquake retrofitting is essential for strengthening Rancho Palos Verdes Soft Story buildings, which are at high risk of collapse during an earthquake. Soft Stories are typically the ground floor of a building with large open spaces, such as garages, parking lots, or storefronts. This lack of structural support makes them vulnerable to collapse during an earthquake, when the shaking can cause the upper floors to crush the lower floors.

There are a variety of Soft Story retrofitting techniques that can be used, depending on the specific design of the building. Some common techniques include:

  • Adding shear walls to strengthen the perimeter walls of the Soft Story;
  • Reinforcing the foundation and columns to support the weight of the upper floors; and
  • Installing steel braces to connect the walls and floors of the Soft Story.

Rancho Palos Verdes Soft Story retrofitting is a worthwhile investment to protect life and property. In addition to increasing safety, Rancho Palos Verdes Soft Story retrofitting can also increase the resale value of your property.


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

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.
