Increase the resilience of your home’s foundation with Achieve Remodeling’s Earthquake Retrofitting services.
Seismic Retrofit , Earthquake Retrofit or Cripple Wall Bracing- whatever you call, it pertains the same thing. It is the modification of existing structures to make them more resistant to seismic activities, ground motion, or soil failure due to earthquakes.
To keep a house from falling off its foundation in an earthquake, earthquake retrofitting strengthens three different areas of a house. These areas are all located in the basement and/or crawl space and if any one of these three areas is not adequately retrofitted, the house will be susceptible to damage in an earthquake.
These three areas are:
- Bracing the cripple walls with plywood.
- Bolting the braced cripple walls to the foundation.
- Attaching the floor of the house to the braced cripple walls.
As qualified earthquake retrofit contractors in Bay Area and its surrounding cities, Achieve Remodeling provides quality solutions and customized earthquake retrofit service for your home.
