Structural Inspection Specialist Warns Los Angeles Residents to be Ready

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc. ( a foundation repair specialist and general construction contractor company in the Los Angeles area, has issued a general warning to residents in the Los Angeles area on the importance of earthquake preparedness, in order to be ready for the next big earthquake. Shawn Kyles, structural inspector for Julian Construction, urged homeowners to take time to learn the facts and be ready.

Mr. Kyles stated: “An earthquake can occur at many different depths below the surface. The closer it is to the surface, the more damage it will cause to man-made structures. Earthquakes typically take place on fault lines, which is where two large plates of rock rub against each other. For years seismologists have been predicting that residents in the Los Angeles area will be hit by a large quake with a magnitude of 6.7 or greater. A major earthquake can uproot trees, collapse buildings, bridges and parking structures, and buckle roads. Earthquake preparation is important, and can help prevent injuries and property damage.”

Julian De La Torre, owner and founder of Julian Construction, Inc., stated: “It was the last big earthquake, the 1994 Northridge quake, which really brought it home to everyone in Los Angeles that you have to be ready for an earthquake. This was also one of the driving purposes for founding Julian Construction. We wanted to help people be ready for the next big one and make sure they knew what they had to do to be ready. We’ve worked with many homeowners on earthquake retrofitting so they can have the peace of mind their home will remain structurally sound.”
