Earthquake Protection

13_Earthquake ProtectionDo you live in an area that is prone to earthquakes?

 At Disaster Recovery Services, we are earthquake protection specialists in minimizing the damage.

 Earthquake retrofitting or seismic retrofitting, is the reinforcing of a house or building so that it is less likely to be damaged or separated from its foundation during an earthquake.

With earthquake retrofitting in place, you’re less likely to face significant damage when a natural disaster occurs.

We specialize in all types of foundation damage repair due to earthquake damage. Our work also contains concrete lifting and leveling of slabs, driveways and sidewalks.

Our approach to each job we undertake is with great care for detail. We’ll take the time to retrofit your property so that you get the peace of mind. 

Our mission is to apply advanced seismic isolation technology to the design and the construction of resilient and sustainable facilities that can continue to function after an earthquake.

We have the highest engineering qualifications, technologically advanced products, the broadest implementation experience, and the most comprehensive manufacturing and testing.

Seismic retrofitting may be expensive and overwhelming, and most of our specialized structural enhancements can be completed quickly and affordably. Framing connectors can be installed at specific locations to greatly strengthen the building’s structural integrity.

Our seismic retrofit and associated services are: 

  • Foundation repair and reinforcement
  • Repairs and upgrades to post-and-beam foundations
  • Framing anchors, tie-downs and other seismic retrofits
  • Permanent, nondestructive repairs to settled or sunken foundations
  • Strapping for tank-type water heaters
  • Seismic upgrades to qualify home for earthquake insurance

 A seismic retrofit is a small investment compared to the major loss that can occur without sufficient structural protection. Performing a seismic retrofit not only provides piece of mind to the building’s occupants,  it can also potentially lower the owner’s insurance premiums.
