Quality of life in Costa Mesa is certainly above average. The only cause of concern in this otherwise near perfect city is the high earthquake risk on account of its geological location.
As per the USGS database, there is a very high probability (91%) that an earthquake measuring above 5.0 in magnitude will occur within 31 miles of Costa Mesa in the next 50 years. Older residents may recall the damages caused by a 1992 earthquake that measured 7.2 in magnitude, with its epicenter within a 100 mile radius of the city. So you can imagine the devastation that can be caused to your home if the epicenter moves closer.
Cripple wall is a short wall that connects the floor of your house to the foundation. Constant sub-surface upheavals in Costa Mesa can make the cripple wall weak. The weak wall, when subjected to forceful motions during a major earthquake can buckle inwards or slide sideways or completely gets displaced from the foundation causing major destruction to your property. The financial losses aside, the life of your loved ones is at risk and so are the memories associated with your home.
The foundation is the basic source of support for your home. When the foundation is compromised either due to a prior earthquake or some other reason, naturally, the house is more vulnerable to damage during earthquakes. CXC Contracting foundation repair solutions help prevent that.
