We recently published an article about earthquake retrofitting. Did you know that in California, 90% of commercial buildings and 87% of homes are not insured for an earthquake? That’s why it’s important for people to know how to earthquake proof their homes.
In this article, we first talk about how earthquakes impact a home’s structural integrity. Then we define what seismic retrofitting is and share its benefits. Lastly, we share how to determine when a building needs retrofitting and talk about the methods of retrofitting a home.
By continuing, you will learn about:
- How earthquakes affect homeownership
- What you need to know about how earthquakes impact your foundation
- The benefits of earthquake retrofitting
We quote 16 different sources in the article — it’s quite authoritative.
