About Western Magnesite

Western Magnesite has been in the decking business since 1961. That’s over half a century of satisfying customers and protecting their properties and tenants. Founded by Phillip Green, this business was created to provide magnesite repair services to the many apartment buildings in Los Angeles.

Bernard Fainstein acquired Western Magnesite in 1998. He has expanded it from a small business servicing property management companies into an industry leader, providing waterproof deck coatings, concrete surfacing, and stairway installation/ repair to the top production home builders in Southern California.

Bernard has been in the service industry for the better part of his working career. He understands the importance of customer service, quality workmanship, and most importantly, customer loyalty. As a result, 90% of Western Magnesite’s customer base is retained because of repeat business and referrals by our customers.

Though magnesite may not be the first choice in today’s new construction, we provide a wealth of other services to suit your building’s needs. You’ll find more information about them here on this website. We are also one of few companies still in the business of magnesite repair, refinishing, and replacement.

Western Magnesite has assembled a unique group of people possessing highly-regarded skills, as well as a strong management team to support our dedicated and trained installation crews. This leadership has allowed Western Magnesite to achieve the best level of service and customer loyalty in the industry.

Bernard and his team are constantly reviewing and developing new and better products. Western Magnesite believes in keeping up with modern trends, and spares no effort in staying ahead of the products of tomorrow.

Western Magnesite is a member of Community Associations Institute and the Apartment Owners Association.
