Earthquake Retrofitting


In the event of a moderate to large earthquake, many of our older homes may sustain substantial damage. By installing foundation bolts, plywood sheerwall, and various types of hardware in basements and crawlspaces we are able to provide additional protection for your home should such an event occur. In instances where we have brick foundations, the installation of additional reinforced concrete retaining walls is one way of providing additional strength to a structure where removal of the brick is impractical.
