Why Do I Need a Retrofit?

Why Do I Need a Retrofit? The United States Geological Survey (USGS) claims that there is a 100% chance of a 5.4 or greater earthquake taking place in California’s Bay Area in the next 35 years.
Despite the high likelihood of a serious seismic event, an extreme minority of California homeowners hold earthquake damage insurance. Most vulnerable are hillside homes, wood-framed structures, and dwellings with large open spaces at ground level.
It’s clear that taking safe, cost-effective preventative action — in the form of seismic retrofitting — can save homeowners hundreds of thousands of dollars.

What’s Involved?

Bolting

We add anchor bolts in the building’s crawl space to strengthen the connection between the wood framing of the home and its concrete foundation.

Bracing

This involves adding plywood to the cripple walls to prevent the building from shaking off of the foundation in the event of an earthquake.

Give Us a Call

Expert brace and bolt contractors use structural screws, pressure treated members with extra thickness, and hold downs to provide vastly improved uplift resistance.
With earthquake retrofitting designs that exceed that of the International Building Code, Attic Pros can speedily bring any building right up to standard.
