Foundation Company Reminds Homeowners to Prepare for Earthquakes Like Recent Napa Valley Quake
Napa Earthquake a Grim Reminder To Public of Earthquake Property Damage
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc., (julianconstruction.com) a foundation repair company based in Los Angeles, is reminding residents and business owners to repair and reinforce their foundations for earthquake preparedness and safety, in light of the recent 6.0 earthquake which hit Napa Valley. The event is bringing the realities of earthquake damage back to the general public, from business property damage to homes.
On August 24th, at 3:20 AM, a 6.0 earthquake hit the Napa Valley. The quake has been dubbed the “South Napa Earthquake” by the USGS (United States Geological Society). Centered near the West Napa Fault, the earthquake caused considerable damage in the local area. Efforts are underway to help restore the damaged businesses and homes in the area. Julian Construction is seeking to raise public awareness on earthquake preparedness, strengthening foundations so that homes foundations can better stand up to the California earthquakes. Earthquake preparedness, says the company, ensures the safety of all a building’s occupants.
Julian De La Torre, founder and owner of Julian Construction, stated: “These events are tragic. But what we strive to do is help people become better prepared for them. When you use earthquake retrofitting to reinforce the foundation of a building, it helps the structure stand up better to the earthquake and prevents collapse during and after the quake. If we all prepare for this than we can rest safer.”
