The seismic retrofitting process involves the installation of engineered metal connectors and other reinforcement materials at key stress points throughout your home’s structure. The specially designed hardware includes hold downs, anchors & anchor bolts, strap ties and framing angles. Wood blocking and structural sheathing may also be incorporated into many retrofit projects. The goal of a retrofit is to secure/bolt down your home to the concrete foundation.
During a seismic event these reinforcements greatly increase the chances of your home surviving with minimal damage. The cost of the retrofit is typically recovered between four to six years as you save on insurance premiums. We offer free estimates to assess your property. We will then provide you with a comprehensive bid explaining what we feel is necessary to perform a correct and functional retrofit.
