Pier & Post Support System
Here is a list of some of the work we do. Foundation is a case by case situation that requires experts to analyze and asses what should be done to repair:
Remedial repairs of cracked, settled, shifted, rotated and/or deteriorated sections of concrete perimeter foundation walls. Any type of post/pier issues (shifted, deteriorated, cracked, settled, “over shimmed,” undersized, etc. Repair of wood damaged framing/structural components in the foundation system area.
Floor leveling performed on a case-by-case basis. In instances where a crawl space has debris in it that will limit our ability to perform any of the above tasks, we will also remove and haul away past debris that has been left in the space (we, of course, always remove all debris created during the course of our work).
Creating additional support systems in key locations of the foundation area to accommodate existing structural deficiencies and further protect your home.

The seismic retrofitting process involves the installation of engineered metal connectors and other reinforcement materials at key stress points throughout your home’s structure. The specially designed hardware includes hold downs, anchors & anchor bolts, strap ties and framing angles. Wood blocking and structural sheathing may also be incorporated into many retrofit projects. The goal of a retrofit is to secure/bolt down your home to the concrete foundation. During a seismic event these reinforcements greatly increase the chances of your home surviving with minimal damage. The cost of the retrofit is typically recovered between four to six years as you save on insurance premiums. We offer free estimates to assess your property. We will then provide you with a comprehensive bid explaining what we feel is necessary to perform a correct and functional retrofit. Please call or e-mail us if you have any questions or would like to receive an estimate.

«Sam visited our home and gave us a professional and honest assessment of our foundation issues. He walked through the house thoroughly and immediately identified problematic areas, and inspected closely to provide a proper assessment on the severity of our issues, without trying to exaggerate the problems and sell us a big project. Expert. Professional. Trust-worthy. I highly recommend Golden Retrofit to anyone who needs help with foundational issues. »
«Amazing company hands down. I can say they handle everything with such grace and politeness. They truly are a great company. I had some foundation problems and within minutes of speaking to them over the phone, I realized i was choosing a great company. They fixed my foundation repairs and even came back when I had a concern (false alarm). That is how you know they care for their customers. Thank you Golden Retrofit for maintaining such a great and polite staff. »
«A close friend of mine recently had a seismic retrofit done at her home that brought it to my attention and I began to look into what it was about. I ended up doing some research on my home and found out that it wasn't up to code to today's standards. I decided to have a couple companies come out and give me an estimate. It was between two companies but ultimately I went with Golden Retrofit & Foundation repair. I am happy with the decision and have absolutely no complaints. The work was done on time and they did as they promised. If you're looking for a company to do your foundation repair. Go with Golden. »
About Golden Retrofit & Foundation Repair
Our hope is that we never have to endure the next “big one”. As time goes by and more research is available, listening to mainstream media often feels like impending doom is around the corner. Geologists differ in opinion on when and how powerful the next earthquake will be. They all agree that one is inevitable living in Southern California. We are here to give you and your family the peace of mind that if one does come, you will be prepared. Seismic retrofit is the step we should all consider. Studies show that modifying/reinforcing an existing structure will help withstand the powerful forces generated by an earthquake. Using specially designed steel brackets and anchors will tie your home/apartment to its concrete foundation properly. The proper installation of hardware at the correct locations under your home will allow the structure to have a much better chance of making it through an earthquake with minimal damage.
