Taking care of your home means making sure you’re prepared for whatever natural events may come your way. One of those is an earthquake. If your house was built before 1980, it is not retrofitted to be safe in the event of a quake. That’s where Evergreen Seismic can assist you. We provide a trained seismic retrofitting specialist near King County to help you get all the additions completed promptly to protect your home and your family.

What Is Retrofitting?
Retrofitting is simply securing your home to the foundation it’s built on. We can attach the home with anchors, straps, or other methods to ensure it is solidly connected. Retrofitting helps bring your building into the new century with safety standards that are a must today. Quakes can happen at any time. You don’t want to lose your home or investment because you didn’t take the time to discuss the options for securing the location.
What Are The Benefits?
The benefits of retrofitting include:
- Solid protection for your investment
- Protection even that the insurance cannot provide in the event of a quake
- Reduce the chance you have to continue paying for a home that is destroyed
- Bring the home up to code safely
What We Do
To keep your home secure in the event of a quake, there are three main areas your seismic retrofitter will focus on. The areas include bracing the crippling walls, bolting the walls to the foundation, and attaching the floor to the crippling walls. Your technician will evaluate the home, provide you with a full estimate and plan, and get you secure in no time.

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.
