Seismic Retrofitting


Keeping your Home Safe

Portland and the surrounding area are located in a seismically active zone.  

The goal of retrofitting is to strengthen homes by transferring lateral loads generated in a seismic event from the house to the foundation.  There is also evaluation of gas valves and egress windows.  All of this is very specific to the individual house.
