Construction Company Urges Homeowners to Take Steps Needed To Safeguard A Home

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc., (, a home foundation repair company in Southern California, recently issued a public statement to homeowners on being prepared for the effects of earthquakes on a home. In addition to the dangers during a quake, earthquakes can cause structural damage to the foundation of homes. The company urged homeowners to take steps to keep their homes safe and increase earthquake preparedness.

Professional safety inspector, Shawn Kyles, stated: “An earthquake can cause serious damage to a home, especially if the building has not been retrofitted. Retrofitting is the modification of a structure by adding new components to make the building stronger. Following the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the severity of structural issues in residential neighborhoods varied considerably from house to house depending on the steps each homeowner had taken to fortify their home.”

The full text of the company’s public message can be seen on the company’s website:

Julian De La Torre, founder and owner of Julian Construction, stated: “At Julian Construction we’ve seen a lot of damage to foundations in the aftermath of earthquakes. It has to be watched for particularly if the home is in an area where earthquakes are common, such as in greater Los Angeles. There are tools like earthquake retrofitting that can help protect a building from the devastating effects of these quakes. If a home is safeguarded by first inspection, and then taking the proper action, then you can have greater peace of mind about the safety of the structure you live in.”
