The foundation of your building provides stability and strength to the whole structure. In an earthquake, the ground movement and seismic activity can displace a building from its foundation, which results in severe structural damage or even complete collapse. To prevent this, structural engineers have devised a way to bolt buildings to their foundations to prevent displacement during large earthquakes. Although this does not protect against any and all damage to a building, it has proven to be effective in greatly reducing the extent of property damage caused by earthquakes. San Francisco Retrofitters can help you improve the safety and resilience of your home or business using the most advanced construction techniques. Contact us for more information about how to earthquake retrofit your home.
As time goes on and our understanding of the effects of seismic activity improve, so too do the methods used in constructing homes and commercial buildings that are better able to endure earthquakes of significant magnitudes. Unfortunately, many older buildings were built before these advances in structural engineering, which means that if an earthquake were to occur, these buildings would be much more heavily impacted than newer buildings. To bring your home or business up to date and ensure that you do not suffer excessive loss should there be a natural disaster in the Bay Area, contact San Francisco Retrofitters to find out what options are available to you. We can assist with foundation bolting, soft story retrofits, cripple wall bracing, earthquake retrofit brackets, and more.
