Competent structural experts and true professionals with exceptional work ethics. I had the pleasure of hiring and working with Chris Olson and Richard Sullivan on a number of projects, including an earthquake retrofit.
We called Alpha Structural to assess a failing block wall in our backyard, which is on a hill, along with a couple of cracks in our upstairs bedroom walls. Alpha Structural assessor, Aaron C. was on time to the appointment. He walked the yard with us, and pointed out some things, that after talking with him, were evident. Bottom line, the wall we thought was a retaining wall was not, and the actual retaining wall, is further down the hill and is in good shape, phew! He also made some suggestions regarding a big tree compromising the actual retaining wall, which we will need to address. The second item he assessed was the cracks in the bedrooms, after figuring out and explaining the issue, we arranged to install a beam in our garage (under the bedrooms) to stabilize the structural beam below the bedrooms. Felicia called me to schedule the work, as she stated, the Foreman, and his crew (Julio and another gentlemen) called me before arriving, they arrived on time, and ready to go. Ernesto was very informative about how the day was going to work out, there was some question of how the beam would fit, but we worked through that, and Ernesto kept me updated through the process. Julio and partner got to work. The noise was not too bad, and they cleaned up after the work was done, they took all the dirt they dug up for the footing and left the area clean. The crew was very polite, and respectful of our home. That goes a long way with me and my wife.
We definitely would call on Alpha Structural again, if needed, and also highly recommend them.
Thank you, Ernesto, Julio and team!
We purchase a 100 yr old house that needed some reinforcement of the foundation. Alpha was recommended to us from a few sources. Met with Carlos in sales. He worked with us to find the happy medium of getting as much work done that was within our budget.
The week of construction; Adolfo, alfredo, Ernesto and the entire team did am amazing, professional job. They went above and beyond what we discussed. They finished the job with minimal side effects to the building. They supplied photos of the work completed. Would easily recommend Alpha to friends needing structural work done.
Please view ALL of the photos as they show the chronology.
In January 2021, this home was being painted when a friend suggested, "Why don't you have those cracks looked at - it will cost you a couple of thousand dollars or so....." But what ensued was two bids requiring 15 days of foundation restoration/replacement! Alpha's highly skilled team made this major investment minimally stressful given the scale of this project.
I can only sing the praises of Brad Nestler (estimator), Chris Olson (Lead Supervisor), Alvaro and Alfaro (outstanding laborers), and the dedicated, efficient office staff, Kasandra Godbold and Tiffany Guerra.
As a picture speaks volumes, only they can best show the stunning transformation.
Alpha went above and beyond, and even timed their workflow to accommodate the schedule of my valued tenants and of the plumbers so that they could also tie in a new water line simultaneously.
We hired Alpha to initially repair & support a structural beam that had started to crack in the basement of our 47 unit apartment building in Long Beach (7/21). They were the only contractor we received estimates from that could do both the repair and in-house engineering. They did an incredible job on our building, from the estimate to permitting to completion! Brad Nester later found additional damage (we requested further inspection) that was able to be added to the current job, thereby shortening the time having to deal with the city a second time (initial permit took 6 mos to obtain!)
Special shout out to Steve & Lawrence, supervisors on the job, who met with us and kept us informed of any updates, as well as providing us with after pictures. And a special thank you to the actual crew, Thomas & Chino, who had to work in a crawlspace of about 2-3', in not-so-ideal conditions!!!
Thank you Alpha!
Super professional, friendly crew, really solid job. They completed the job ahead of schedule and even slightly below budget, two things that never ever happen. Would definitely hire them again, but I only have one foundation and now it's solid solid solid.
Alpha Structural replaced approximately 40' of my home's 100 year old foundation in South LA, which was in really bad shape. All around a very positive experience. Brad worked with me on all the details and answered all my questions when signing the contract. Also, the field crew was highly skilled, professional and very neat, Pedro and Eny in particular. I would recommend them to anyone I know.
I recently hired Alpha Structural to do foundation repair on our hillside house in Hollywood while in escrow. They were fantastic and professional every step of the way. I came to them while with a time crunch asking them to fix the foundation ASAP so I could close escrow. They did everything they could to get my plans completed and submitted to the city for approval ASAP, so they could start on my project. If it wasn't for the city being so slow on their end, the project could have been completed much faster. Kyle (Senior Assessor) was extremely knowledgeable and very professional. He answered all my questions and told me exactly what we needed to make the foundation last for a lifetime. Memo and Elmer (project managers) and did an awesome job keeping everything on time and according to schedule. Their team worked hard and efficiently. They even worked on a Saturday to make sure they were prepared for city inspection on a Monday. I put a lot of pressure on them to get the job done and they were definitely up to the task. After the job was complete, they were able to get us all the documents and reports the bank required to have us close escrow on time!
If you have any home that has foundation issues, there is no better place to go than Alpha Structural!
