Earthquake Protection

13Do you live in an area that’s prone to earthquakes?

 At “Disaster Recovery Pros“, we specialize in stabilizing homes and businesses.  Earthquake retrofitting, or seismic retrofitting, is the reinforcing of a house or building so that it is less likely to be damaged or separated from its foundation during an earthquake. With earthquake retrofitting in place, you’re less likely to face significant damage when a natural disaster occurs.

 If an earthquake event has already caused foundation issues we specialize in all types of primary foundation damage repair. Our expertise also includes concrete lifting and leveling of slabs, driveways and sidewalks.

 We approach each job we undertake with a fine eye for detail. We’ll take the time to retrofit your property so that you get the peace of mind you deserve.

 Our mission is to apply advanced seismic isolation technology to the design and the construction of resilient and sustainable facilities that can continue to function after an earthquake. Using multi-stage seismic isolation, it is now economical to design facilities to protect contents, non-structural components, and structures from damage during the most severe earthquakes.

 New construction can cost less than minimum code designs based on traditional ductility design. Consequently, designing for continued functionality is now an economical and practical alternative to code designs that implement only the minimum life safety standards as required by law.

 We have the highest engineering qualifications, technologically advanced products, the broadest implementation experience, and the most comprehensive manufacturing and testing. We respond to the worldwide demand for seismic isolation bearings with on time delivery at competitive prices.

 Seismic retrofitting may sound expensive and overwhelming, but most of our specialized structural enhancements can be completed quickly and affordably. Having access to key stress points like stem walls or pony walls, sills, rafters and truss chords means that framing connectors can be installed at specific locations to greatly strengthen the building’s structural integrity.

 Our seismic retrofit and associated services are:

  • Foundation repair and reinforcement
  • Repairs & upgrades to post-and-beam foundations
  • Framing anchors, tie-downs and other seismic retrofits
  • Permanent, nondestructive repairs to settled or sunken foundations
  • Strapping for tank-type water heaters
  • Seismic upgrades to qualify home for earthquake insurance

 A seismic retrofit is a small investment compared to the major loss that can occur without sufficient structural protection. Performing a seismic retrofit not only provides piece of mind to the building’s occupants, but it can also potentially lower the owner’s insurance premiums.  Contact us at (480) 435-9731 for a complimentary assessment of your home’s earthquake readiness.
