Earthquake Retrofitting A Must For Earthquake Preparation

Homeowners Urged to Retrofit Homes to Earthquake Preparedness Safety Standards

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc., (http://julianconstruction.com/) a foundation construction and foundation repair company located in Los Angeles, has been continuing its campaign to raise awareness of home safety standards. Specifically, the company has been working to make homeowners aware of the necessary steps to keep their homes safe in the event of an earthquake, including earthquake retrofitting. The company has extensive experience with the procedures needed to address any structural issues which would cause damage in the event of an earthquake.

In a recent article on earthquake safety, Julian Construction’s safety and inspection expert Shawn Kyles stated: “There are ways to prevent potentially dangerous situations in a quake, like house bolting, which is anchoring the home to its foundation. Los Angeles and other So Cal city homes benefit from these procedures. And the chances of damage from an earthquake increase when there are any type of pre-existing foundation problems. If there is any chance your home has structural weaknesses, it’s a good idea to get a foundation inspection done by experienced foundation contractors before the next quake hits. Foundation issues can be addressed by a foundation repair expert who has an extensive history of work on homes in your area. Retrofitting is the best way to limit damage from an earthquake.”

Julian Construction has worked extensively in the field of home earthquake retrofitting to address structural issues in a home’s foundation. A home can be inspected if foundation problems are suspected to exist, or if the home’s foundation is many years old and has not been inspected.

Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction, stated: “We have been working and keeping up to date on how to retrofit a home so that you don’t have to. You shouldn’t have to worry about whether your home will be safe in the event of an earthquake. You should rest easy, knowing your home rests on a structurally sound foundation. We can inspect your home to find out what steps are needed to get it there.”
