Earthquake Retrofitting for Los Angeles Homeowners

Although we don’t think about it day to day, we as Los Angeles homeowners live in one of the most seismically active regions of the world. Our homes are not only at considerable risk from “the big one,” but are also susceptible to the slow damage caused by consistent small tremors. Seismic retrofitting is designed to provide peace of mind for you, the homeowner, by keeping your home and family secure in such cases. If our careful assessment determines that your foundation is structurally sound, we use specially designed hardware to securely bolt your home and foundation together at key stress points. This helps protect your home against catastrophic damage in both the case of those unpredictable large earthquakes and the less noticeable damage that takes years.

The Importance of Earthquake Retrofitting in Los Angeles

Many homes in Los Angeles, especially those built before 1985, were not properly secured to their foundations when they were built.

Due to the unpredictability of earthquakes, insurance companies are increasingly encouraging or, in some cases, requiring homeowners to reinforce their homes against earthquakes. Our rebolting and seismic retrofitting service is designed to fulfill this need and to give you peace of mind about the safety and integrity of your home.

Our trained crews will bolt your home to its foundation, fill in any cracks and add posts as needed to ensure your home is properly secured in as little as a few days.
