Thank you for your prompt an professional service in the seismic upgrade (Earthquake Retrofit ) you did at my home. The customer service level and the hands on work of the installation of the Simpson UFP-10 anchors and the L-90 framing connectors was 9-10 on a 10 scale. Scheduling was flawless thanks to Brandon Blasing. In addition, Rene’s structural expertise was highly valuable to me in pursuit of leveling my middle bedroom.
Please feel free to send this to any customers as a reference. I will spread the word of mouth reference to anyone I know in persuit of seismic upgrades of the high quality of Peace of Mind’s work.
Respectfully, Paul Nickels
Our realeter uses Peace of Mind a lot for inspections and repairs of foundations. Renae, the owner, is very personable, leaving nothing to chance, explaining everything in plain English, and recommends only what he thinks is necessary as opposed to trivial or unnecessary. After a second inspection of our home in Redwood Shores, this time being able to get under the house, it was concluded that our foundation had some cracks and the re bar which holds it in place was crooked. We saw no effect as our house is still standing up straight. It is only 15 feet of the foundation that needs repairs for $6000 which is not bad.
It involves jacking up the house with hydraulic jacks, not raising it off the ground; straightening the re bar, and filling in holes with concrete and apoxi to prevent moisture from getting through. The work will take place between us moving out and the new owners moving in; I can say that I have peace of mind knowing that it will fixed right and on time as only a week to a week-in-a-half is needed.
FYI, Renae also does structural upgrades and repairs, drainage systems, concrete walkways and driveways, and seismic retrofitting. So, for excellent foundation and structural work, Peace of Mind cannot be beat. Keep up the good work Renae and crew.!

I had a good experience with this company. They recently installed a large sump and drainage system at my home. Everyone I dealt with was professional and responsive. They spent alot of time going over the project and getting it right. I had several estimates for the work and found their bid to be competitive. Work was done quickly and correctly. I’d definitely use them again.

We had a fantastic experience working with Peace of Mind Structural. The team worked on our project for about 4 weeks and completed a major foundation job on schedule and without going over the initial price estimate. Everyone we interacted with was extremely professional, friendly and accommodating throughout the whole process. We received regular status updates and our questions were always answered promptly. We would certainly use Peace of Mind again without hesitation. 5 stars all the way!

My wife and I recently bought a house and were looking to fix the cracks in our foundation, as well as to improve the ventilation in our crawl space to help eradicate mildew growth. Our Realtor recommended Rene from Peace of mind, who came out to inspect our foundation.
Rene and his fellow contractor arrived on time and did a thorough inspection, including accurately measuring the house and producing a drawing that we’ll be able to use to talk to other contractors. They explained several options to us related to drainage and seismic improvements, but emphasized that we are lucky to have no urgent problems that we need to spend money on right away, and that we may want to simply monitor the situation for the time being. I learned about concrete problems like efflorescence, cracking, and spalling, their causes, and what sorts of types of drainage systems are possible.
I’d definitely be willing to recommend Peace of Mind to others looking for an expert opinion on foundation problems.
