For those considering a seismic retrofit, I highly recommend Matt Robinson’s firm, Evergreen Seismic. Matt and Evergreen Seismic specialize in seismic retrofits.
Accordingly, Matt’s initial assessment of work to be performed was well-informed by substantial experience, sound understanding of relevant codes and the permitting process, and accurate anticipation of what would likely be required by the structural engineer given our circumstances and requirements. While explaining and developing his proposed Scope of Work and bid, Matt responded quickly to questions and concerns; and his flexible approach enabled him to focus on meeting technical requirements while also addressing our specific requests and desires.
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.
