Meet Malcolm DeBrus

A hands-on general contractor, Malcolm is invested and involved in every retrofit, every remodel.

Before earning his contractor’s license, he worked as a foreman for several prominent Bay Area contractors. During that time, he and his team completed dozens of seismic retrofits, structural upgrades, home additions and remodels throughout the City.

As more direct referrals came his way, Malcolm decided to form his own company specializing in seismic solutions. He works with commercial and residential clients to enhance their properties and keep them structurally sound.

A native of Galway County, Ireland, Malcolm lives in San Francisco with his wife and young son. Proving that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, the toddler’s favorite toy is a plastic hammer.
