Izzi B., Woodland Hills, CA
« Great Job!  Retrofitting360 impressed me and I being that I myself am an architect, that's tough for most construction companies to do. Mati delivered exactly as he proposed, on time and on budget. Although this was a relatively complex project there and there were a few bumps in the road, Mati and his team found excellent solutions and demonstrated their immense knowledge and experience in the retrofitting field. No issues were left unresolved to our fullest satisfaction. I whole heartedly thank Mati and the Retrofitting360 team and recommend them to anyone in need of their services. »

« My wife and I are completely delighted with the work that the Retrofitting360 has just completed at our home. Our home, which was built in the 1940's needed some structural work done to prevent some major issues should we be hit once again with an earthquote. This included raising a support beam and some other tasks. They have done the job expediciously and completed before the scheduled date which allowed us to proceed with other construction work at the propertly. We appreciate the skill and effort Retrofitting360 has put into our home and will be sure to let everyone know. »
