LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc., (http://www.julianconstruction.com), a foundation repair and construction company in Los Angeles, offers earthquake retrofitting, also known as house bolting.
Earthquake retrofitting is the process of firmly attaching a house to its concrete foundation using foundation plates and anchor bolts. If a home is not firmly connected to its foundation in this way, a severe earthquake can cause the home to move off the foundation.
Julian Construction Inc. specializes in foundation bolting and the bracing of cripple walls (short stud walls between the floor and foundation of some houses) by using structural-grade plywood which, if needed, provides greater resistance to earthquakes.
“California is earthquake country. There are multiple earthquakes happening every single day in California. Many of these earthquakes are minor, but we never know when a major quake is going to happen. And when it does, you’d be relieved if you had taken the steps to ensure your home is properly secured to its foundation,” notes Julian De La Torre, founder and owner of Julian Construction.
