Soft Story Retrofit in Los Angeles, California
A soft-story building is a building in which the first story of the building is only 70% as strong as the second story. The first story of this type of building is usually hollow and most commonly used as a parking garage. Soft story buildings are much more susceptible to collapse during an earthquake, which is why a process, known as soft-story retrofit, is used to strengthen the structural integrity of a soft-story building. ABI Construction Inc is highly skilled in providing soft story retrofit services to Los Angeles, California area residents and businesses so you're not faced with catastrophic damage in the event of an earthquake.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:
★★★★★ - "We used Abi Construction for our exterior stucco and wood. Never have I thought of a lifetime paint that is waterproof and fire retardant. This product looks stunning on my house. They fixed up all my stucco and bad wood. Daniel was my project manager helping us throughout the project with ever step calculated and detailed. I am currently using him and his company again to redo my pool :) 10/10!!"

★★★★★ - "We used ABI construction to replace our very old roof, they had predicted the work to be done within a week. We were gladly surprised that they finished the job in 3 days. I have a toddler so the banging on the roof was a lot, but it was great that it was over so quickly! The roof looks so good, it makes our house look so much better. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. Mo was also kind enough to check out water pressure."

★★★★★ - "I got my renters roof done with Abi Construction! It was a pleasure working and coordinating with Daniel he was awesome! He gave us a 50 year roof with warranty! He got the job done quick and very professionally. Highly recommend them as I usually don't like dealing with contractors. He made it very easy to understand which is why I proceeded with them."
Janice A., Roof Installation in Los Angeles, CA2022-04-11
★★★★★ - "I'm very pleased with my new roof from ABI Construction Inc. Levi Ostfeld explained all aspects of the contract prior to commencement of the job which only took part of four workdays for Arturo Barrera and crew to complete. Blancie, Jr. Guy helped with the LADBS permit and city inspector's initial and final approvals. Both Levi and Sam Abikin stayed in daily touch with me, answering any of my questions and providing me with progress photos. I was impressed with how the crew constantly cleaned up any debris. That was the first thing my friend noticed also. Levi and crew took their own progress pictures, and Arturo Barrera took my iPhone to the two-story duplex roof for my own set of pictures whenever I asked for them. Now I have a new flat roof with all the vents, the covers, skylights, and new Spanish tiles around the trim of the duplex and separate two-car garage. Extra attention, work, and new materials were devoted to the drain areas. Replacement wood was a minimum and pictures of said wood were taken prior to being covered with the new roof. I'm confident I won't have any leaks during the ten-year warranty ABI Construction provided me."

★★★★★ - "After a rigorous renovation, my relative referred me to ABI for a Cool Life lifetime coating system, and I couldn't be happier! Shoutout to Houman that assisted us throughout the whole process. He was professional, knowledgeable, and very attentive during the whole process. I certainly noticed the cooling benefits and feel at ease knowing there's a lifetime warranty on the paint. Highly recommend ABI for any home improvement!"

★★★★★ - "My husband and I recently got our roof done by ABI. Houman kicked us off into our new home project. He was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. He made sure that all of our questions were answered in a professional matter. Understandably, inquiring/hiring roofing information and/or quotes may become a bit too exhausting. I am, however, glad that Houman, Sam, and the rest of the team eased the process for us. The workers were incredibly fast, neat and professional. I would highly recommend ABI to anyone."

★★★★★ - "Daniel my project manager was a pleasure to work with. He assisted me with all my needs. I really needed a roof and got referred by my neighbors. He is absolutely fantastic and very good looking, but on the other note he really takes his job seriously. Him and his crew were splendid and cleaned everything up and did it on a timely manner."
Jan H., Roof Installation in Calabasas, CA2022-10-18
★★★★★ - "Hello everyone I I wanted to come on here and give everyone some peace of mind on roofers as i had to go through a lot to find one i liked. I did my roof which is a 50 year roof with the Mojave color and included a 50 year warranty with materials and labor. I loved the idea of not using tar paper and using the waterproofing material. I had major rain and leaks coming through my roof. I called ABI Construction and they sent this fine gentleman named Daniel who was very thorough with his presentation and explained everything to my wife and I. After hearing what he had to say that night my wife told me she had a good feeling with him so she called him to fix the roof. I can't thank g-d enough for going with my wife's feeling. If you like to check out my roof I'm located at 18839 E Fondale street azusa California 91702 :)"
