Earthquake retrofitting is especially important as a preventative measure in the Southern California region. Our team will secure your home with metal attachments, which gives your foundation extra strength in the case of seismic activity.
- Post Caps and T Straps. These caps and straps are used to secure the Pier and Post system. These metals are important; without them, it’s common that the floor can start to sag.
- URFP-10’s. This updated technology is used to secure the foundational footings to the mudsills. These are commonly used to replace older technology that has worn off by other seismic activity.
- Cripple Wall Bracing. Another protective measure against house collapse in the event of an earthquake, this form of bracing utilizes plywood sheathing with ventilation holes. This is our course of acting if the building appears to “pinch” or buckle towards the bottom part of the property.
- Earthquake Bracing and Bolting Program. Finally, we are FEMA certified under the EBB program and can discuss what this entails with you. We will upload the proper documents and photos they require.
