Foundation Retrofitting


FOUNDATION RETROFITTING

 

California Earthquake Retrofitting

Although we don’t think about it every day, Los Angeles homeowners live in one of the most seismically active regions of the world. It’s not a matter of if but when the next California earthquake will strike and how large the impact will be. Not only can our homes be damaged by the next “big one,” but they are also susceptible to the slow damage caused by more frequent small tremors. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) believes the next “big one” is within the next 100 years. When the next large earthquake occurs, you want your home and loved ones safe and secure. Foundation earthquake retrofitting provides homeowners with the peace of mind that comes from knowing their home is protected from the damage caused by an earthquake.

Using state-of-the-art technology, the professionals at GCR will determine if your foundation is structurally sound or in need of reinforcement. Our inspections are designed to pinpoint any vulnerable areas, so we can strengthen the connection between your home and foundation. Seismic retrofitting protects your home against cumulative damage over time caused by small, consistent tremors as well as catastrophic damage caused by large earthquakes.

Protect Your Family From the Next Los Angeles, CA, Earthquake

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

Due to the unpredictability of earthquakes, insurance companies are increasingly encouraging or requiring homeowners to reinforce their homes against California earthquakes.
