Do you live in an area that's prone to earthquakes?
As earthquake protection experts, "Disaster Recovery" specialize in stabilizing homes and other buildings to minimize earthquake damage.
Earthquake retrofitting, or seismic retrofitting, is the reinforcing of a house or building so that it is less likely to be damaged or separated from its foundation during an earthquake. With earthquake retrofitting in place, you're less likely to face significant damage when a natural disaster occurs.
If an earthquake event has already caused foundation issues, we specialize in all types of foundation damage repair. Our expertise also includes concrete lifting and levelling of slabs, driveways and sidewalks.
We approach each job we undertake with a fine eye for detail. We'll take the time to retrofit your property so that you get the peace of mind you deserve.
Our mission is to apply advanced seismic isolation technology to the design and construction of resilient facilities that can continue to function after an earthquake.
Using multi-stage seismic isolation, it is now economical to design facilities in a way that protects the contents, non-structural components, and the structures themselves from damage during even the most severe earthquakes.
New construction can be designed for this continued functionality, more economically than traditional, minimum code designs that implement only the minimum life safety standards as required by law.
Existing buildings can be upgraded using some of the same techniques. We have the highest engineering qualifications, technologically advanced products, and extensive implementation experience for retrofitting your home or commercial building.
Seismic retrofitting may sound expensive and overwhelming, but most of our specialized structural enhancements can be completed quickly and affordably. Having access to key stress points like stem walls or pony walls, sills, rafters and truss chords means that framing connectors can be installed at specific locations to greatly strengthen the building’s structural integrity.
Our seismic retrofit services and associated services include:
Foundation repair and reinforcement
Repairs & upgrades to post-and-beam foundations
Framing anchors, tie-downs, and other seismic retrofits
Permanent, nondestructive repairs to settled or sunken foundations
Strapping for tank-type water heaters
Seismic upgrades to qualify homes for earthquake insurance
A seismic retrofit is a small investment compared to the major loss that can occur without sufficient structural protection. Performing a seismic retrofit not only provides peace of mind to the building’s occupants, but it can also potentially lower the owner’s insurance premiums.
