One of our specialties at CXC Contracting, Inc. is earthquake retrofitting, where we modify your house’s structure, making it more resistant to ground motion, seismic activity, or soil failure. To deal with the extensive damage that can result from an earthquake, we’ve developed a comprehensive list of earthquake retrofitting services to help recover from an earthquake in the best way possible. Our services can include installing structural reinforcements to strengthen the building and prevent the roof from pulling apart or collapsing in an earthquake. This process may involve installing continuity ties, roof-to-wall anchors, roof nailing, cord plates, exterior steel, and draglines.
Further action can be taken through foundation bolting, waterproofing, and more. With our extensive research and implementation of professional practices, we believe our earthquake retrofitting procedure is your best protection against the constant seismic activity in Southern California of all sizes.
