Call us now and we deal with all the planning, permits, drawings, execution and inspections. All you have to do is sign the dotted line.

Don’t get put off by our name. We are proud to maintain the same name that started it all.  Our founder started all the way down on the bottom of the totem pole and worked his way up in construction one step at the time. For this reason we know all that could go wrong and correct situations accordingly before it is a problem. The owner himself is still involved in each project visiting job sites being the best quality control that you could ever imagine.  His humble beginnings and values created a solid infrastructure of devoted employees, subs, suppliers and friends that are able to compete and easily win from the best constructions companies in the USA.

We provide outstanding service, personalized consultations, and partner with the best professionals in each trade. This partnership allows us to provide first-class work at unbeatable prices. Who wouldn’t want to have quality AND low prices?

Do you need to hold back soil surrounding an excavation? Don’t rely on fly-by-nighters: We will build you a retaining wall to support vertical grade changes, prevent soil erosion and downward slope movement, or make landscaping tiers. We use the most common building materials for this application as masonry, interlocking blocks, natural stone, interlocked bricks, reinforced concrete with steel rebars, timber, and steel I beams among other specially designed configurations.

No matter the size of the retaining wall, constructing it requires a lot of engineering, we partner with a group of engineers that have the art of designing retaining walls refinet to a “T”.

Retaining wall stability is enhanced by sloping the wall’s face to create a setback or batter. A gravity retaining wall relies on its own weight to hold back the forces of the soil, and the internal leverage of earth pressure can be quite significant. We never just slap together a wall – our engineers determine location, size, slope, drainage systems, concrete density, and steel reinforcement, based on soil reports and your specific needs.

We are located smack dab in the middle of the action where retaining walls are most needed in Hollywood Hills. We are surrounded by the most sought-after real state in the United States. Hollywood Hills and Beverly Hills besides being the most desirable land in the USA it is also very hilly. We have been making the land usable by building retaining walls in all the steepest hills in our neighborhoods and we are able to obey and follow the most stringent regulations for retaining wall building.

It is no luck that we have worked for the best of the best and served directly or indirectly many superstars that keep residences in this part of town on top of hillsides in Hollywood hills, Beverly Hills, Belair and other hilly neighborhoods. We build retaining walls to accommodate any need. We can build a heavy-duty steel reinforced wall or a wood retaining wall for less slopped hills. We have been building retaining walls in this part of town for so long that we already have all the contacts with city officials, and the professionals to accomplish any size construction.

We can build retaining walls to make useful space in your yard, build a retaining wall to reinforce the slope around the foundation in order to add a second story to an existing structure, build an underground retaining wall to help excavation for building very effective wine cellars, reinforce existing retaining walls or anything else you may need when it comes to retaining walls.

Call us and we will meet with you, determine your needs, find you the right engineer, soil reports, draw all the plans, obtain all the permits, build to specs, preside all the required inspections and paperwork, and get the finals and if required, the certificate of occupancy. All you have to do is walk in and enjoy it. No concerns, no headaches, no doubts, a great retaining wall to meet your needs.

Call us and request an appointment with the owner of this company to discuss your retaining wall needs. Yes, deal directly with the owner! He will actually show up at your door to discuss your project.

Sometimes all your stained, discolored concrete or stone floor needs is a good acid wash. We can use muriatic acid to remove set-in stains and even rust.

Keep in mind that an acid strong enough to etch a concrete surface can cause severe injury when used improperly: This is a nasty, sloppy, and potentially dangerous job that may hurt you if you try to do it yourself.

We do not recommend using muriatic acid indoors except under extreme circumstances and, hopefully, by our experienced professionals who know how to deal with the dangerous fumes and confine all acid to flooring. We do not recommend layman use of muratic acid on your pegged high-waisted jeans, either.
