Owning an apartment building in North Hollywood and informed by LA City that the building needed to be inspected for earthquake retrofitting. I contacted SKS and spoke with Sam. He arranged a meeting and we agreed that he would check the building and have City engineers inspect the building for retrofitting. Sam got back to me and informed me that the building did not require a retrofit. I paid some money for the plans, inspections, etc. but SKS saved me a huge amount of money. I found Sam and his father very helpful in every way - professionally and personally. I would highly recommend SKS as I believe they had the utmost of integrity and honesty when dealing with my situation.
Sam is the Man !!! The most honest guy in the business !
Every contractor I spoke to was eager to take on my retro fit project, getting bids from $60-$90,000. Sam was the fifth contractor I contacted about my retrofit. He took one look at the building and said I believe that this building does not fit the description of a soft story building and it should be exempt from the retrofit. I was happily shocked to hear that, and sadly disappointed that no other contractor had told me this, but all of them were willing to move forward with the retrofit work.
Sam and his " A " team jumped into action. He drew up the calculations, submitted the plans to the city, got them reviewed and approved, and I never has to mess with any of the headache, they handled it all ! I m now just waiting for the city to send me the final certificate of exemption. I can't say or brag enough about Sam. He and his team saved me over 50,000 dollars by getting me an exemption. If you want the truth on your building and you want to deal with an honest man and his team you got to go see Sam. Im now going on vacation with the money he saved me ! Aloha, Jim
Was very impressed with their professionalism and responsiveness. The team made sure the job got done efficiently and on schedule.... this is what you get when you have engineers on the construction team - it's priceless... I highly recommend them!
I have two apartment buildings that required retrofitting. Not knowing any contractors in this area, I was lucky to find SKS Construction who took on this project at a very reasonable price. They provided engineering as well as construction. Sol and Sam were always available to answer any questions I had. The project was completed on time and of good quality.
I have worked with Sol and SKS Construction for over 20 years - he has always been unbelievably reliable and fair - his workmanship is excellent. He was recommended to a client of mine and we worked together on a major remodel - I have subsequently referred him multiple times over the years.

SKS Construction completed structural/foundation work as well as total rehab for a property we manage in West LA. Sol and team are competent and honest, meeting our desired budget and timeframe. Sol and his sons' structural engineering background as well as their building craftsmanship made the process run seamlessly and we are very pleased the job.
SKS also completed seismic retro-fitting and tenant improvement work on a building we manage in Santa Monica with beautiful results.
From structural engineering and seismic retro-fits to meticulous workmanship, I highly recommend SKS Construction.
