While most people think earthquakes only happen in California, they can happen anywhere in the country — especially in Washington. There have been over 5,000 earthquakes in the past year alone. While some damage from earthquakes is inevitable, there are steps that homeowners can take to help protect their home and their family. Earthquake foundation retrofitting in Lynnwood is one such step.
A home is meant to be a safe haven to relax and enjoy time with family and friends. But for many homeowners, their home is anything but safe. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, over half of the population in the United States lives in an area at risk for earthquakes. Don’t be a victim — earthquake foundation retrofitting can save your life.
Home Is Your Safe Haven
Retrofitting strengthens a home’s foundation so it can better withstand the force of an earthquake. This can be done by adding brackets or anchors to connect the foundation to the house’s framing or installing special foundation plates. While retrofitting will not completely eliminate the risk of damage from an earthquake, it can significantly reduce it — and in some cases — it can even save lives.

Matt did a fantastic job on the earthquake retrofit for our home. Our garage had never been so clean as it was after he was done with his work. Matt had the utmost professionalism through every step of the project. The contract clearly explained everything he was going to do, and he completed every step exactly as described. He thoroughly answered each of my questions during his initial visit in a way where he not only answered the question I asked, but gave background information to educate me on the topic of seismic retrofit. It's great to have the peace of mind that not only is my home now better able to withstand the "big one" that will eventually come to the PNW, but also that the work was done by a great company.
