Increased occupant safety when homes are rehabilitated.
Increased likelihood of your home being habitable after an earthquake.
In high seismic areas, a retrofit may increase your home resale value.
We specialize in seismic rehabilitation as a stand alone project or during remodels and additions.
Seismic rehabilitation should be encouraged as part of addition or alteration projects. Each year homeowners invest a significant amount of money in remodels and additions, in doing so, they significantly extend the useful life of their homes. Seismic rehabilitation can be a small part of the overall construction project, can use the same contractor, and can help to protect the investment that is being made in the dwelling.
Seismic rehabilitation work done within the livable space is more likely to be possible during remodel/addition/renovation work. Also, mandatory building code requirements may apply.
HOW IT WORKS
Seismic rehabilitation can always be undertaken as a stand-alone project. Any time is a good time to improve seismic safety.

The term Seismic Rehabilitation describes modifications to dwellings, which are intended to improve the safety and performance of a dwelling during an earthquake.
Other commonly used terms are Seismic Strengthening, Seismic Retrofit and Seismic Upgrade. In common usage, all of these terms mean the same thing.
Seismic Rehabilitation is important, because a modest investment made prior to an earthquake can have a large payoff after an earthquake.
