Foundation Bolting, otherwise known as “Earthquake Retrofitting” is the process of affixing a building to its concrete foundation using foundation plates and anchor bolts. As California is geographically predisposed to earthquakes, a solid foundation can determine the structural integrity of a building when earthquake damage is incurred. For this reason, the decision to retrofit one’s home can prevent the displacement of the house from its foundation and thus prevent major structural damage during an earthquake. In addition, since many homes in the Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley areas were built several decades ago, your home may need to be retrofitted due to the advances in earthquake preparedness that did not exist when the initial construction too place. ESV | Prime Construction provides expert foundation bolting services that include total foundation repair, replacement, drainage and repairing cracked walls/floors.
Customized planning, placement and installation of foundation bolts are essential to maintain the structural integrity of your home in earthquake prone terrain. The team of retrofitting experts at ESV | Prime Construction will work with you to select the type of bolt corresponding to the existing structure of the home and its foundation to ensure that your property is protected from the devastation that can occur from earthquake damage.
We recently added a living room balcony to our Hollywood Hills home, and felt very fortunate to have Ari overseeing the project. His initial bid was competitively priced, and he`s honest, prompt, conscientious and an all-around great guy. He brought in a terrific architect & engineer to draw up the plans, and made sure everything was constructed according to city codes, sometimes absorbing extra costs to get the job done right. Yes, we ended up spending a little more than the initial bid, but that`s to be expected on a large scale, hillside project. Highly recommended if you`re doing big structural changes and renovations to your house.

Ari and his crew really took great care of us. We added an on-suite master bath and walk in closet. They also remodeled an existing bath, bedroom and back patio. They were on time and on budget.
I highly recommend them, and we plan of using them again soon for some work in a home we just bought.

Have you ever noticed that contractors are basically insane? Well, I managed to find one that`s not! After 6 months of remodeling basically our entire house and adding an addition, we finished our relationship with ESV | Prime Construction as – get this – friends!
Ari’s crew is really great. The Forman is top notch and the workers showed up every single day at the what seemed like the crack of dawn. They smiled and sang all day long and were really kinda pleasant to have around. (I mean as pleasant as it can be to have a bunch of strange guys in your house all day.)
We spent more than expected, but hey – I guess that`s the way it always goes, so it`s par for the course. The bottom line is that we love our groovy new home! I highly recommend ESV | Prime Construction if you`re looking for someone to do some work on your house!
