General Contractor in Los Angeles

Seismic activity in Los Angeles is nothing new, Southern California has been expecting “The Big One” for years. It’s something that Californians have to deal with, but in 2015 the City of Los Angeles passed Ordinance 183893 and Ordinance 184081 to establish mandatory standards for soft story buildings that are considered at risk of structural failure during an earthquake.
The purpose of these ordinances is to promote public safety, and reduce structural deficiencies caused by earthquakes in the most economical and feasible methods The City of Los Angeles Department of Building Safety, or LADBS, spent over two years compiling a list of soft story buildings that that will need some type of seismic retrofit. The Los Angeles Soft Story Retrofit Program outlines all requirements for a building to comply by 2022.

Bernardo is the Best – Giving Away My Secret Weapon

We spent two full years meeting with dozens of contractors before we decided to use Bernardo and JBros Construction for our full home remodel. Our patience paid off. He was the only person I could have trusted with a job of that size. He oversaw the entire project himself and attended to every detail. He’s one of the hardest working people I’ve ever seen. His crew took pride in their work and treated our property respectfully. They took care to cover everything well and clean up after themselves.

Bernardo was extremely flexible when unseen issues arose and our project expanded. He always kept our budget in mind and was always fair. He has a deep knowledge of all aspects of construction and can advise on work that should be done but is never pushy. Our project included; retrofitting the foundation, total exterior remodel (stucco and Hardie Board), replacing all water and termite damaged wood, new plumbing, fixtures, drywall, doors and windows, lighting (interior & exterior), electrical panel replacement, gutters, roofing, full garage remodel, structural fortification (replacing beams and posts), and retaining wall construction. I don’t believe there’s anything he couldn’t handle. I would trust him with any job.

This project could have drug on forever but Bernardo got it done in very good time. I hate giving away my secret weapon but it has to be said. There’s a lot of money at stake in a project like this and you need to trust the person you are in partnership with implicitly. Bernardo has all the qualities we were looking for. He’s honest, hardworking, and a really nice guy. Qualities all too rare in this field.

J Bros Construction did an incredible job on a major house renovation for me – foundations, plumbing, flooring, painting, cabinetry, new kitchens and bathrooms – Bernardo Alvarez and his team did everything. I’m very happy with the results. They worked fast, did consistently excellent work and were always a pleasure to be around. I would recommend them very highly.

Bernardo and his crew have completed several projects on my home: foundation repair and house bolting, a large deck and new roofing. All were completed on time and on budget, with careful attention to detail. After working with several contractors on a variety of projects, it’s such a relief to have found someone I can trust, who understands the full scope of work and can quickly pivot when necessary. The deck project was particularly complicated, and Bernardo put us at ease and explained the process each step of the way.
Bernardo understands that home improvement work can be disruptive to home life, and he made every effort to minimize the impact of noise, dust etc throughout all three projects.
His crew is amazing: hard-working, considerate, and kind. They are quick and efficient without cutting corners.
Honesty and clear and frequent communication are key, and Bernardo is a shining example of both. We’ve compared pricing/bids with other contractors, and J Bros have always returned the most complete scope of work at a fair price. I look forward to working with them again.
