I cannot recommend Cal Quake Safety high enough. I hired this company for earthquake retrofitting inside and outside my house. This included securing furniture and artwork on the walls and extra bolting to the foundation. My house was built in 1962 when the norm was bolting every six to eight feet. That is no longer considered adequate. Max and his son Michael have created a unique and ingenious way to bolt the house to the foundation every three feet without removing all the siding and with no signs afterward of any disturbance to the siding. In addition they discovered wood rot in some siding and mudsill due to water damage. They are experts in all sorts of construction repair and so were able to completely fix those problems as well expertly and efficiently with reasonable cost. Not only are they very, very good at what they do, Max and Michael are honest, dependable, and persons of integrity. If Yelp allowed six stars, I would give this company six stars. They are that good.
