If you reside in California, then you’re probably used to tremors. Los Angeles in particular is susceptible to seismic activity. The LA basin has multiple faults which makes it extremely vulnerable to earthquakes. At LA Structural we strive to deliver the best earthquake retrofitting Los Angeles has to offer.
Most of these are very minor, but every few years a magnitude 6 earthquake occurs, which can be very damaging to structures that are not fit to reduce earthquake damage.
If you are a property owner, it is critical that your building is adequately retrofitted to withstand seismic activity. As leading experts in Los Angeles earthquake retrofitting, LA Structural can help you upgrade your property or building to meet the current laws and codes that govern the process of earthquake retrofitting in Los Angeles County.
Living in a region that is seismically active increases the risk factors for damage to both life and property. However, by earthquake retrofitting your residential or commercial property, you can effectively lower your risk for potential damage during a quake while also increasing the safety of your structure.
Although earthquake retrofitting in the greater Los Angeles area is not mandated by law on residential properties – it is about the smartest decision you can make to do everything possible to secure your safety in the event of a substantial size earthquake. Insurance policy is another important consideration – if your property is not earthquake retrofitted, you can expect your insurance payouts to be extremely high. Every house is unique in its architecture, the time it was built, the current condition of the foundation and structure, and where it is located among other such considerations.
Even though there is a uniform earthquake retrofitting process for all buildings, the quality of that installation is an important consideration in who you choose for your retrofit needs. We at LA Structural are experts in earthquake retrofitting in Sothern California. We will work with you to devise the best and most cost-effective solution for your structure and ensure your property is up-to-date with all required earthquake codes.
