SEISMIC RETROFITTING CONTRACTOR SAN FRANCISCO | EARTHQUAKE RETROFITTING
Many of the homes built in the San Francisco area where constructed prior to any significant engineering standards being in place and are consequently at risk to earthquake damage. Seismic retrofitting or earthquake retrofitting typically entails the installation of a variety of types of anchor bolts and hardware which improves the performance of the structure during a seismic event. The process of securing a home's wood framing to the concrete foundation has become a common and relatively simple process.

We specialize in retrofitting existing structures, both commercial, multifamily condo buildings, apartment buildings, and single family residences. From foundation bolting, cripple wall bracing, to soft story seismic retrofitting, we provide professional service and fast results. We provide both seismic construction and seismic retrofitting upgrade design and permitting. Making buildings safer, one bolt at a time.

SOFT STORY SEISMIC RETROFITTING
Many homes and particularly apartment buildings within Los Angeles are constructed without proper consideration given to the seismic activity experienced in the region. Following the Northridge earthquake in 1994 building engineering standards changed dramatically. Structural design criteria was enhanced thus making buildings more resistant to the structural damage experienced as a direct result of the Northridge quake. Many of the structures damaged in the quake were due to a condition known as a 'soft story'. Soft story structures are basically structures that have one or more large un reinforced openings on the ground level with additional levels built above that opening.

Todays building practices can achieve the appropriate level of safety however the engineering practices of the time did not adequately account for the violent shaking caused by earthquakes. As a result, many apartment structures and homes are left with soft story conditions that are potentially deadly during an earthquake. We provide retrofitting of soft story conditions which affords our clients peace of mind and usually much lower earthquake insurance.
