The Importance of Retrofitting of Structures

Sunday, November 20th, 2011 by Weinstein Retrofitting Systems


In California, many homeowners are faced with the concern of having a retrofitted home. A retrofit is a general term and has been more and more widely abbreviated to stand for “earthquake retrofitting.”

This is a process of adding additional hardware to the foundation of your home in order to give your home the strength and support it needs so it does not fall over or collapse during an earthquake.

When you, the homeowner, recognize that retrofitting of structures is an important part in preserving the welfare of the State of California during the Big One, you are directly making an impact on our economic landscape.

On a raised foundation system, there are three things you should do in order to retrofit your home:

1.    Bolt the foundation to the home;
2.    Brace the cripple wall with strong plywood (if you have a cripple wall); and
3.    Strap the water heater.

Some retrofitting of structures takes much more care and deliberation, and sometimes civil engineering to get the right solution for a specific building in question.

The best way to recognize what kind of retrofitting your home or building needs is by contacting a foundation specialist like Weinstein Retrofitting Systems. Ensuring that your home and loved ones are safe during the Big One is our specialty!
