Expert construction services to make your home earthquake safe

Most concrete or brick foundations in San Francisco are not reinforced with rebar. So when the shaking starts, your home is at risk. Even if your property does not require a mandated retrofit, a structural upgrade may be a worthwhile safeguard. DeBrus Construction has completed retrofits all over San Francisco. Our expert construction services will help you sleep better at night.

How does a retrofit work?

After we receive your plans and permits, the project can take from 4 to 12 weeks to complete, depending on the scope of work. If you’re thinking of adding an ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) or garage to your San Francisco property, it makes sense to get it permitted at the same time to cut costs.

Our “No Surprises” pricing

When quoting on a project, contractor Malcolm DeBrus believes in complete transparency.  That’s why he does a walk-through of the site with your engineer to identify any potential problems. That way, there are no unexpected charges once the project is underway. 

The result? A building that’s structurally sound and meets the City’s standards.

To see how we work, contact us for a tour of a retrofit in progress.
