Seismic Retrofitting in Los Angeles: Protecting Your Home or Business from Earthquakes


When it comes to protecting your home or business from earthquakes, there is no such thing as being too cautious. That’s why, when our clients in Los Angeles were looking for a company to help them retrofit their building, they chose Retrofit1. With over 20 years of experience and more than 300 projects under our belt, we are the experts in seismic retrofitting.

The building in question was a four- to six-unit structure with tuck-under parking. This type of parking is often the cause of seismic vulnerabilities, as the weight of the cars can cause the structure to collapse during an earthquake. To solve this problem, we installed braced or moment-resisting steel frames and cantilevered steel columns. This will help to distribute the weight evenly and prevent the collapse of the building during an earthquake.

The project was not without its challenges, but our team of experienced professionals was up for the task. We successfully completed the retrofit and our clients were very satisfied with the results.

If you are concerned about your home or business being earthquake-safe, don’t hesitate to call Retrofit1. We will be happy to assess your needs and provide a solution that will give you peace of mind.
